I LOVE this. In large part because I absolutely loathed Ken Dorsey. Plus Kaaya's yards have all come at a time when the team is absolute dogshit. His record is worthless and he'll know it deep down.
Ken Dorsey's brother attended FSU while Dorsey attended Miami. I attended at the same time. DorseyBro was this dumpy, overweight 5'7" schlub (it was really hard to believe they were brothers, but it was confirmed) who would always wear his brother's jersey on campus.
So I hated his brother, then grew to hate Ken Dorsey himself. You're right, he was vanilla. The only things I remember about him was that he was skinny and had huge ears and nobody thought he'd do jack in the pros. My hatred is solely based on the actions of his brother. But it's college football, expecting anything rational is unwise.
I think the coaches are a push. Not a huge Harbaugh fan. Talent is way in FSU's favor, so my money went on talent.
I mean in terms of game management. Jimbo's terrible at managing the clock and struggles with game plans (see aforementioned anecdote). Also, Michigan sacks the quarterback a lot, and Florida State's offensive line is dogshit. But the Orange Bowl is home away from home, so I still think we'll edge out a victory.
