The Florida State Seminoles have teased national writers and fans the last few years as being ready to compete for a national championship. Loaded with talent, the Noles always got tripped up by some team that shouldn’t have beaten them. Not this year.
This is a big week for Atlantic Coast Conference football and league members from top to bottom hope to benefit.
While most college football fans are already pointing to a potential matchup of an undefeated Florida State Seminoles and Miami Hurricanes; the Noles have a tough road to get there starting Saturday with a game against a vastly improved Maryland Terrapins team.
Given the history of the Florida State Seminoles football program and kickers, specifically against the Miami Hurricanes, it might surprise you that in recent years the school has turned out a string of very successful kickers. The trend has continued this year with redshirt kicker Roberto Aguayo.
The list of former top high school football prospects who never met the lofty expectations set for them is long and includes names like Willie Williams and Fred Rouse. But for at least one night, former top quarterback prospect Jameis Winston lived up to the hype and then some for the Florida State Seminoles
The Florida State Seminoles are used to dealing with big expectations for players entering the program, but the hype surrounding redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston are off the charts.
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has named Jameis Winston as its starting quarterback.
Can Florida State lose eleven players to the NFL Draft, yet make a run at a second straight Atlantic Coast Conference championship? FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher believes his Seminoles team still has plenty of talent and is ready to make a run at the ACC title.
During the 2012 preseason, the Florida State Seminoles was a popular sleeper pick for the national championship. FSU ultimately couldn’t hold up and lost its starting quarterback to the 2013 NFL Draft.
Florida State’s coach believes despite a lot of new faces, his team won’t look much different than the squad that finished 12-2 and ranked No. 10 last season.
