Forget about Jameis Winston and his off the field issues. That has been well documented.
Now Florida State is slowing dropping in the College Football Playoff Selection Rankings after being leapfrogged by one loss Oregon this week.
There are those who believe the Seminoles shouldn’teven be in the four team playoff for lack of impressing anyone.
“I thought the name of the game was to keeping winning.” Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said. “I don’t know what they’re (the CFP Selection Committee) to send or what’s trying to go on.”
It appears that this Florida State team is a victim of their success from last season which was off the charts. An FBS record 723 points and averaging 51.6 points per game and FSU scored less the 40 points only twice last season.
“You don’t win games like we did last year.” Fisher said. “No one had done it in 68 years.”
This season the Seminoles have scored over 40 points just three times but Florida State remains 9-0 this season.
“We win.” Fisher said. “I think we are great in our own way. Maybe each team has a different style, but I love this team.”
It appears Florida State is a team that everyone else loves to hate.
“What somebody thinks of us – I hate to say but it’s none of my business.” Fisher said. “We just control how we play. We’ve won every conference game except one by double digits. I’m very happy with the way we’ve played.”
Saturday Florida State takes on Miami in a rivalry game at Sun Life Stadium.
The Seminoles have won four in a row over the Hurricanes. Since Miami made Sun Life Stadium their permanent home Florida State is a perfect 3-0 on that turf.
Should Miami prevail against Florida State Saturday, and that could happen, watch FSU free fall in the rankings.
That’s about the only way you will keep the Seminoles out of the playoffs.
“We’ve just got to keep playing well and winning.” Fisher said. “We’re going to have our hands full going to Miami.”
Yes you will.
