We’re within a few hours of the start of this year’s college football season, and three days away from the Florida State Seminoles officially starting their title defense. It will be both fun and intense, so I put together five reasons why FSU fans will find fun amongst the stress.
Not since Archie Griffin in 1974 and 1975 has a college football player won the Heisman Trophy in back-to-back years. However, Jameis Winston will try to cement his legacy by doubling up on the iconic award in 2014.
Last season, Winston talked about not catching “Manziel disease,” but his year and a half of being famous has been riddled with every off-field accusation from sexual assault to shoplifting. Still, fans have a chance to see the quarterback play with room to improve on his 67 percent completion.
According to ESPN’s Numbers Never Lie, Florida State has a 40 percent chance to go undefeated because of a pretty weak schedule. Which means a potential 30-game win streak will be on the line every time they step foot on the field.
Not only do the Seminoles have an opportunity to be the only ACC team amongst three SEC squads in the inaugural four-team playoff system, they're practically expected to hoist the newly-crafted championship trophy.
The idea of Alabama versus Florida State for the National Championship would be a screenwriter’s dream.
A battle between two of the deepest teams in the nation, coupled with the intrigue of Jimbo Fisher vs. his mentor Nick Saban and Bama quarterback Jacob Coker vs. his old team, would be entertainment at its highest level.
