The Florida State Seminoles needed a bit of luck to win a national championship last season. Repeating that feat will be a bit problematic, and that is because of the improved competition. Jameis Winston certainly proved his worth as a player last year, but his off the field issues could end up having a residual effect on his play. Here are five reasons that the Seminoles will unfortunately not repeat in 2015.

We all heard about Jameis Winston's theft problem earlier this Spring, and I do not mean to rake him under the coals any more. Well, I kind of do, but that is mainly due to the comedy factor of it all. The young quarterback has shown prodigious skill in both football and baseball; we will have to see if he shows improved decision making in the future, because he does not need these issues popping up again for him in the NFL.

It certainly helps your cause during the regular season when you are in the ACC, and the Seminoles could have a shot if Winston can overcome his legal issues. Last year's Heisman trophy winner has a whole world of talent at his disposal, and State's chances at repeating hinge on his broad shoulders. For some reason, I just do not see it happening.

His crew had quite a lot of success last season, and part of the reason was how unexpected it was. The head coach might be a little bit too cocky as a result, but having a solid recruiting class certainly does not hurt one's confidence.

Nick Saban is probably pretty angry about the way things shook out last season, and I would anticipate the Alabama Rolling Tide to come back angry this time around. The SEC is always tough to play through, but the Tide have a fantastic recruiting class coming into town. If they can get to the title game, then do not bet against Saban and company.

Jacob Coker backed up Jameis Winston in 2013, but he could end up leading Alabama in 2014. T.J. Yeldon and Amari Cooper are also in play. We will just have to see who comes out firing in the fall, and then take things from there. In the end, I think the Seminoles will win the ACC again, but they will find defending their title to be too difficult.
