CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) --

Jermaine Thomas ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns in the first half and Florida State pounded Virginia 34-14 on Saturday.

The Seminoles (4-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 27-0 at
halftime after outgaining Virginia 294-42. Thomas, who finished
with 122 yards on 16 carries, scored on runs of 70 and 10 yards,
and Christian Ponder hit Willie Haulstead with a 15-yard touchdown
pass.

The Seminoles also sacked Marc Verica three times before
halftime, and he missed several open receivers. He was 4 for 15 in
the first half, and all four completions were to running backs.

Virginia (2-2, 0-1), which had beaten FCS schools Richmond and
VMI and played well in a 17-14 loss at Southern Cal, viewed the
game as a chance to see where it stands four games into the Mike
London era, and many of the Cavaliers fans left after seeing the
answer.

    I think FSU fan is a imposter. The seminoles is 2-0 in CONFERENCE play, 4-1 overall. Compared to the last few years, I have seen alot of improvement. Miami is no push over, they (FSU) will have to earn that win and they have the potenial to do just that.

    Jimbo, you're pretty tough playing high school teams but you better get ready for your spanking next week. It will be every bit as bad as Oklahoma.
