Lotsa hype in NoleLand this year, but I think we are still a couple of years away. Jimbo is a great recruiter, and he'll win back the Flarida St. champeenship to its rightful owner in a couple of years.

EJ Manuel is certainly quick on his feet. He had to be with all the upfront deficits in the past. I think the problem now is the lack of a solid receiving corp. The offense is still a work in progress IMHO.

Defense getting better all the time, though. I think it will be a 3-loss season.

OKLAHOMA: Watch Stoopes have his annual nervous breakdown, and the Noles pull out an overtime win on September 17.

Well i for one wouldn't mind seeing FSU back near the top,, when Notre Dame upsets em in a BCS it will be all that much more Glorious.

Agreed FSU is on the rise withe recruiting 'ol Jimbo is doing.

Sept 17 at the Doak will be a good half game. Second half Landry and the boys put the 'Noles away. The rest of the season you guys should spank 'em.

I'm a bit more optimistic.I feel like as long as FSU can beat the Sooners on the 17th, it'll be an undefeated season.The defense is going to be phenomenal, kind of like the FSU defenses from the glory days.And I have a lot of faith in both Jimbo and EJ.Worst case scenario, FSU loses the Oklahoma game and finishes with a 1-loss season, with that loss coming to the #1 team in the country.

FSU fans are starting to get just as bad as the Domers.

Y'all beat a team with a drunk QB and were lit up by the Hokies.

And we beat the crap out of the gators too, lest you forget. Expect the same this year. A closer game, IMO, but a 'Noles victory either way.

Can't compare us to Domers, as we've actually WON something in the last 20 years.

I believe this year we take back the ACC. Next year, I think we contend for the crystal football.

2012 is our year for sure. Think OK and or Clempson loss. Or the stupid ars Thusday night game. Damn I hate those!!!!

Agree, VT and Clemson should be about the only two ACC teams that meet you on close to even terms. I would worry about UF though, lots of good athletes and the game is late enough to where the coaching change for UF should no longer be a negative.

LOL!


The trail is longer than they thought...

We should have scheduled some tought non-conference opponents. Losing on Saturday ruins any BCS championship hopes.

I think the good-times will really begin next year, when Jimbo's system is fully entrenched.

You can still win the ACC though.
