If you watched the Florida State-Clemson game last night, you were treated to a 3 hour Rick Trickett/Jimbo Fisher infomercial by ESPN. Unfortunately, Florida State's offense/defense didn't cooperate, losing 24-18.
What you also got to see was Rick Trickett absolutely berating sophomore OL Daron Rose. As plain as day, you saw Trickett drop 3 F-bombs, including the self-esteem building "fuck you" as an exclamation point.
Trickett's line was absolutely dominated by Clemson's front 4 all night. Seminole QB Charlie Weatherford sure noticed, as he was flat on his face for a lot of the night. This quote from ESPN pretty much sums things up:
Florida State stumbled through a miserable first half where it managed only one first down and 62 yards. Weatherford was under constant pressure and looked lost when he wasn't.
While only one game, I'm getting the sneaking suspicion that Coach Rich Rodriguez was the cause of our great offensive lines over the years, not Rick Trickett. I'm sure Trickett played a role, but he wasn't the end-all be-all of our running attack. That looks more and more like CRR.
