5 Reasons Why Florida State is Most Dominant BCS Team Ever
5 Reasons Why Florida State is the Most Dominant BCS Team Ever
The Florida State Seminoles haven't just run the table this season, they have done it in blowout fashion. Teams aren't even coming close and the Seminoles are resting their best players by halftime and a few times at the end of the first quarter.
I have never seen anything quite like it. People will look at their schedule and say, "well, who have they played?" Make no mistake about it, this Seminole team could not only hang with the very best the rest of the country has to offer, but beat them. There is no doubt that other squads have had impressive seasons. The Auburn Tigers, who the Seminoles will meet in the BCS National Championship game, took down the defending back-to-back National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide in one of the wildest finishes you will ever see in any sport.
They feature a dominant running attack led by Tre Mason and a ultra-athletic quarterback in Nick Marshall. They have one weakness, though. Their defense. It has not been good this season, and might be their undoing in the long run.
A variety of other teams have had impressive runs despite a loss on their resume, but no one is quite as stacked as the Seminoles. They simply look untouchable led by freshman wonder Jameis Winston. He is a mortal lock to take home the Heisman trophy.
I am sure Seminole fans are harkening back to their glory days under Bobby Bowden with this outstanding squad they are witnessing. The Seminole train is coming at 100 miles an hour and it doesn't look like it can be stopped.
Let's take a look at five reasons why Florida State is the most dominant BCS team ever.
Outstanding Play Of Jameis Winston
What can you say about this kid? He has been sublime as a red shirt freshman quarterback. He is the best freshman the game of college football has ever witnessed. He also has the best physical skill set of any quarterback in recent memory. His 38 touchdowns and over 3800 yards passing have him a lock to become the second straight freshman to win a Heisman trophy. Incredible. The freshman has this Seminole team as a juggernaut in the BCS.
Loaded With Four And Five Star Athletes On Both Sides Of The Ball
The Seminoles recruiting class is phenomenal. On both sides of the ball, they have explosive athletes all over the field. I have never seen anything quite like it. The advantage in athleticism that they have over every team in the country is a major reason why this is the most dominant BCS team ever.
Most Explosive Talent In The Country In Kelvin Benjamin
Kelvin Benjamin has been a straight up beast this season. He is approaching 1,000 yards receiving and has 14 touchdown catches. What is more impressive is his 19 yards per catch average. Benjamin makes a big play seemingly every time he touches the ball. This rare explosiveness is why Florida State is on a different level than anyone else.
Margin Of Victory
The Seminoles aren't just beating teams, they are blowing teams out. Many of these games are well in hand by halftime, and some even at the end of the first quarter. You almost feel sorry for team's going against this powerhouse of a college football team. They are simply too talented on both sides of the ball for most squads to handle. Something out of the ordinary will have to happen for this team not to capture a BCS National Championship this season, and make a similar run in the future.
The Seminoles' defense has been stifling this season. They had one small slip up against Boston College, but other than that, no other team has scored more than 17 points against this unit, and in this era of crazy offense's and uptempo attacks in the college world that is nothing short of phenomenal. Make no mistake about it, this defense just as much as the breathtaking offense is why this team is the best BCS squad ever.
