Dino Babers on FSU receiver Keon Coleman: 'God was showing off when he made him'
Dino Babers met with reporters after his Syracuse team fell 41-3 in Tallahassee to Florida State on Saturday afternoon.
Babers was asked about Florida State receiver Keon Coleman, who had a field day vs. the Orange’s secondary. Coleman finished the day with 9 catches for 140 yards and 1 touchdown.
His day included an incredible one-handed grab for a big gain and a 58-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. Babers had plenty of praise for the FSU receiver.
“Is that was the one that was making the moves and was cutting back and made the one-handed catch and then came down and looked like he was a gymnast or something like that?” Babers said. “Yeah, God was showing off when he made him. That was extremely athletic.”
Here’s a replay of the one-handed grab Babers was referring to:

It was a massive performance from Coleman, which is exactly what FSU needed. The Noles didn’t have Johnny Wilson available for this game, who suffered an injury last week vs. Virginia Tech.
Coleman was responsible for nearly half of Jordan Travis’ passing yards in this game. Travis finished with 284 yards and 1 touchdown on the day.
Florida State is now 6-0 on the season and will host Duke in Week 8.
