    Predicted, but painful: FSU loses 31-23 to Louisville

    Play Episode Listen Later Sep 26, 2021 31:31


    Though both Bud and Ingram predicted Louisville to win over Florida State by multiple scores, the way it went down is still painful, as FSU falls to 0-4 on the season. Florida State made a valiant comeback attempt, but how much of that is for real? Not quitting was real, to be sure, but how much of the rushing game success was legit? How much of the defense's success in the second half was related to Louisville shutting things down? What was not disappointing was the great crowd in attendance at Township for the listener meet up. It was great to see our friends and sponsors including Matt Thompson, Chad Reidlinger of 844-FSU-Loan, Matt Lewis of Congruity, and to sip some beers from our Louisiana Hot Sauce koozies. Thanks for supporting the show. We know this is a rough season, and though we have and will continue to note that this is a long-term rebuild, it is still painful.
