Is Mark Schlabach On Crack?



A week ago today after Clemson thrashed Florida State, an article written by ESPN writer Mark Schlabach appeared on www.espn.com titled "High-priced coaches won't matter without talent." The case he's trying to make is this: no matter how good of a coach you are, or coaches you have surrounding you, you won't be great if you don't have talent. I agree with this assessment to an extent, but when you place Florida State in that sentence, it does make one question whether or not you are on crack. What kind of crack do you have to be smoking to claim that FSU doesn't have any talent? That is such an outrageous statement that it makes you question Mark Schlabach's credibility, or his sanity. "But all the high-priced coaches in the world can't save Bowden's dynasty if FSU doesn't get more talented players. If FSU learned anything Monday night it's that it no longer has the best players in the country. Heck, the Seminoles didn't even have the best players on the field against Clemson."Are you kidding me? Did he really say that? Wow, I didnt realize FSU's recruiting classes over the past 4 years have been rated at the bottom of the barrel. Has Clemson closed the talent gap, yes indeed, but if you think Clemson has more talent that FSU, ask Tommy Bowden. He'll tell that he's close, but the FSU's and Miami's and etc. still have the more talented players. My gosh, you have to be either retarded or completely biased to say this. Where did Mark Schlabach go to college at, FSU? Where did his wife go to college at, FSU? Maybe he lost a bigtime bet banking on FSU to cover? Actually, maybe he's not biased, and maybe he's not retarded, maybe Mark Schlabach was smoking crack when he wrote this! I'm going to ask www.espn.com to do the responsible thing and take him off their payroll immediately.

What Did We Learn Today:
1. Crack is something you smoke, not snort - Link
2. Mark Schlabach is probably on crack.
3. Mark Schlabach looks like he's on crack.
and
4. Tommy Bowden Is God

FSU sucks because of their lack of talent. They have some of the best coaches in the nation

Haven't they had top 10 recruiting classes for the past 50 years?

There talent leve is lacking at about 4 poistions. Thats hwat he is talking about. The quarterback is not that good, no experience. The line stinks. Those positions lead to disater for a program

FSU has talent, it's not as much as years ago, Chuck Amato would tell you that, but as usually, ESPN is half-baked. FSU's problem is LAZINESS. It's been allowed for years now. Look at De'Cody Fagg and Greg Carr. Someone needs to slap some sense into guys like that.

Blake (anonymous #3), I know it's you. Get to class. Your spelling is atrocious! Glad you put the beer down to finish your thoughts. Took a sip on "disater, but okay. Nugget would not be happy.

And yes, Schlabach is on crack. Corey Boyd sold it to him.

I punished him, mind you. He stood on the sideline with the long hair during practice. I doubt he'll do it again. I don't put up with that crap!
