Watching Cromartie play on Saturdays it has always been apparent that he is a difference maker. The Noles will sorely miss his next season as he is as close to a shut down corner as there is in the college game. While the Noles do have a seemingly endless supply of lanky receivers, a guy at his size and with his speed at corner is not the norm in college nor FSU which usually has corners in the mold of Terrel Buckley. I believe this to be FSU's most serious loss to date. The Noles are looking real vulnerable against the Canes on opening day.
Editor's Addition: In experiencing NCAA 2006 for the first time yesterday, my point became even more clear and Cromartie is an "impact player" for the Noles. Well, his impact will not be felt next year.
