This year the Seminoles are set up to have a special year.
They have all the talent, and the ACC might be done a bit this year from years past, and it’s for that reason I think they will come out ahead.
Reasons Florida State Will Win The ACC
Budding Star at Quarterback
When you look around the national landscape of college football quarterbacks, you might not think of Florida State right away this year for which quarterbacks are going to have special years.
But I think that Deondre Francois is going to be special this year, and be a big reason why the Seminoles will win the ACC.
Last year Francois was good throwing for 3550 yards and 20 touchdowns. But he wasn’t the focal point of the offense, that was Dalvin Cook.
But this year Jimbo will have more confidence in him and has said he is going to hand him the keys to the offense. I think that will really open him to make more special plays, and make him a sleeper for the Heisman.
The Boys Up Front on Defense
The strength of the defense for the Seminoles is the front four. Not only are they the best front four in the ACC, but they also might be the best ones in all the country.
The Seminoles bring back three of the starting four from last year. Two of those guys Josh Sweat and Brian Burns combined for 16.5 sacks last year.
The coaches have said this off season that they can go three deep at all four positions which should really wear down opposing offensive lines. In the fourth quarter when opposing offensive lines are wearing down, the Seminoles will really be able to wreck some havoc.
Not only is the defensive line strong for the Seminoles, the secondary is just as strong if not even better.
Derwin James, Nate Andrews, Trey Marshall and Ermon Lane would all probably be the best player on most teams in the country, but the Seminoles have hogged them all to themselves.
With the front line wrecking havoc, and these guys in the secondary, opposing teams are going to have all kinds of issues scoring runs.
One of the best things to happen for the Florida State Seminoles in terms of this season, is how the schedule works out.
They play the Alabama Crimson Tide right away to start the season, and that couldn’t have worked any better. If that game was mid season during conference play you might have to worry about them overlooking the game the week before to focus on Alabama.
But with it being right away there will be no distractions in the middle of year.
Jimbo Fisher is one of the top five coaches in the FBS.
He always knows how to get the best out of his players and keep them motivated week in and week out. I think he will be a huge key to the success the Seminoles have this year.
ACC 2017 Football Conference Betting Prediction: 11-1
Florida State has a tough schedule but I don’t think it will cause them any problems. I think they will lose week one against Alabama but that isn’t a conference game so it won’t hurt them at all in terms of winning the ACC title.
They will win out the rest of their schedule and finish the regular season 11-1 and then win the ACC Title game.
