Florida State backup quarterback E.J. Manuel looked stellar a year ago when he had to come in and replace Christian Ponder, going 3-1 as a starter for the Seminoles.
To college ball now and the aftermath of that thriller in Tallahassee Saturday night. Following the two crushing losses at N.C. State and at home to Carolina, the 'noles able to rally late, and beat Clemson in come from behind fashion. Kicker Dustin Hopkins redeeming himself by nailing that 55 yarder at the end, all this says Jimbo, according to plan.

"The thing we've asked our kids to do for two weeks, disappointed as anything, and I've said that, to sit there and say, now listen, we're not going to change what we do, we're not goning to change our core beliefs, this is what, you keep staying true to the process of what we're doing, and where we're going, good things will happen."
So the 'noles set their sights on a game at Maryland Saturday, and an 8th win on the season. Ponder by the way, expected to be back for that one.
