Christian Ponder says Florida State is "not going to lose" for a third straight year to Wake Forest.
Wait, who's Christian Ponder? If you haven't been following FSU this season, he's the new Peter Tom Willis/Thad Busby/Chris Rix/Drew Weatherford. Ponder won a preseason scrum at quarterback beating out the senior Weatherford, and has performed quite nicely against a pair of Southern Conference teams (6 TD, 0 INTs).
The Noles get Wake Forest on Saturday night in Tallahassee. Wake beat FSU 30-0 in Tallahassee in 2006 and 24-21 in Winston-Salem in 2007.
An FSU player running his mouth? Good for the ACC. It needs FSU, the old top-5 FSU, not the new-fangled 7-6 FSU.
I'm with Ponder, by the way, Wake's offensive line has problems. Preston Parker's return from suspension will also help FSU's new-and-improved offense.
One problem with Ponder's pronouncement: he stopped short of the guarantee. Deion Sanders and Burt Reynolds frown on such humility.
What's the over/under on the "Unconquered" unis coming out Saturday?
