Booger McFarland says Florida State coach Willie Taggart will ‘own state of Florida in recruiting’

There are only four active head coaches in all of college football that have won the FBS national championship, and one of them – Jimbo Fisher- left Florida State for Texas A&M this month. But that hasn’t caused one ESPN college football analyst to worry at all about the Seminoles.

Booger McFarland tweeted Sunday morning that he fully expects new Florida State head coach Willie Taggart to succeed, saying that he will ‘own the state of Florida in recruiting.’

That’s quite a hot take, considering rival Miami’s 2018 recruiting class is ranked fourth in the country at 247Sports and contains 16 recruits from Florida, including 12 prospects that have received at least a 4-star rating. Plus, Florida State’s other rival, Florida, also hired a new coach, Dan Mullen, and received quite a bit more notoriety for their hire than the Seminoles did.

Still, despite his calling for Florida State to be more physical, McFarland seems to be arguing the Seminoles are in a better position to win with Taggart than they were with Fisher. McFarland also tweeted Sunday morning that Fisher had the ‘most disappointing coaching job’ in all of college football in 2017.
