2015 Florida State Seminoles Season and Schedule Preview
The past two seasons have been two of the greatest seasons in Florida State history, at least on the field of play. The play of star quarterback Jameis Winston seemed to be overshadowed at times by his off the field issues. Winston led the Seminoles to the 2013 national title in dramatic fashion against the Auburn Tigers.
The Seminoles’ 2014 season saw yet even more Winston drama, but yet again they finished the regular season undefeated and made the first annual College Football Playoff. The Seminoles did not fare as well in that situation as the Oregon Ducks beat Winston’s Seminoles 59-20.
Florida State now must start the post Winston era, which to some will come as a great relief. Winston only lost one career game in college, the loss to Oregon, but may have did more harm than good for Florida State in terms of perception.
His winning ways will never be forgotten and rightfully so. He will have some big shoes to fill, but the Seminoles recruiting success appears to be more capable of doing just that in the very near future.
The 2015 season for Florida State will surely be intriguing to watch for a number of reasons. The Seminoles will still be one of the preseason favorites in the ACC because of the lack of quality teams the Seminoles have to play against in today’s Atlantic Coast Conference.
The key to the 2015 Florida State season will be how the quarterback position plays out and if the Seminoles will be able to replace a boat load of talent they have lost to the NFL the past two years. It will be a challenge, but in the world of college football this is a common theme for every team each season.
