Just don't get it. They may be a good team, but the 1st 3 games they have played this year is the easiest schedule in America. Expert talk like they have done something. As of right now they are the most un-proven team in America. Guess we kind of find out this weekend.
IF they are as good as people think they are...they SHOULD handle Clemson with relative ease.
It's based strictly on several good recruiting classes and a coach that everyone thinks a very good.
3 games into the season, that's about all you have to go on.
Yeah check Oregon's schedule too
The talking heads have to have someone other than Alabama and LSU to talk about. Florida State, West Virginia, Notre Dame, Oregon, you will see all these teams have their day in the sun.
I honestly think some of the talking heads are just bored bludgeoning the SEC talk to death because everyone knows it's going to be another SEC Champion/BCS Champion year.
We will have a better picture after they face Clemson Saturday.
Right on the money. The have had great recruiting classes and have enormous potential. Guess we shall see soon enough. They certainly have about the easiest schedule to the NTL TTL.
I honestly think that Florida State is a legit team this year. I took them at -14 in 5 game parlay this week. If Clemson keeps it close I will be very suprised. Clemson beat Auburn. As far as I am concerned that means nothing to me.
Clemson will get destroyed this weekend.
Here is what i scary. This is potentially FSU's hardest and highest ranked team on their schedule. They play cupcakes all year long. I have seen Big East team's with better schedules than this.

Couldn't agree more. FSU is very good this year especially on defense.
Clemson barely beat AU. There isn't a snow ball chance in hell that they run like they did against AU either. They will fall behind early which is gonna force them to throw and when that happens Werner and the rest of the Dline for FSU are gonna tee off.
Great pick IMO.
I hope they go undefeated, and face us in the BCS Championship game.
Clemson is not that good. FSU will drag them and then you will really hear about it.
In their defense, FSU does have a strong team. You can just see it. Regardless of who they have played.
Yes but these are the types of games that FSU has dropped over the past 10 years or so. Agree that a win over Clumpson at home is about as impressive as beating Miss State at home.
Yeah, I'm kind of a taking a wait and see approach with ACC teams and being consistent enough for an undefeated season. Too many get clipped year and year out- I guess really since like around 01.
I think the big difference with this FSU team- at least so far- and why there might be legitimacy to their hype is that they've looked pretty well rounded so far on both sides of the ball and have been able to run.

They have looked well rounded. They have also beaten the teams they have played (weak as they may have been) the way they were suppose to. No close wins against inferior opponents, like AU for example.
I know some complain about scheduling, but 2 FCS teams in the first 3?! They shouldn't even qualify for the BCS game like AU 2004.
