ESPN correspondent Phil Steele ranks Florida State as the No. 1 team in the nation.
"This year the Seminoles have the most talented team in the country, with seven of their eight positional units ranking in my top 10 and the other position (running back) ranking No. 12 in the country," Steele wrote. The team returns Heisman winner QB Jameis Winston, breakout candidate RB Karlos Williams, stud WR Rashad Greene, 114 career starts on the OL, and six defensive starters including All-American candidates P.J. Williams, Ronald Darby and Jalen Ramsey. "The schedule sets up nicely as the Seminoles get a very inexperienced Oklahoma State team in the opener," Steele wrote. "They get Clemson, Notre Dame and Florida all at home, which are arguably their three toughest foes. Last year they won their games by an average of 52-12 and could very well be a double-digit favorite in every game this year. While they have the large target of being the defending champs, they clearly have the talent and schedule to repeat and get my call to do so." Jun 21 - 6:23 PM

Florida State Seminoles are the No.1 contender for the College Football Playoffs, according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

"The Seminoles will have to play 15 games to win the national championship. Very possible with Heisman quarterback and strong offensive line," Brandt wrote. The Seminoles have one of the most talented teams in the country and with Jameis Winston under center, he has a shot at winning back-to-back Heismans in 2014. The Seminoles also have a good group of capable tailbacks, led by Karlos Williams. FSU has no shortage of big-play threats at receiver, with WR Rashad Greene leading the group of talent. Even though the Seminoles lost some talent on their 3-4 defense to the draft, they could improve in their second year under defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher wanted to play Alabama in the National Championship Game.

At the time FSU beat Auburn, the Crimson Tide were the two-time defending national champions. "I didn’t want to be in the SEC and win a championship," Fisher said. "I wanted to be in the ACC and win (a national title). I wanted to break that mold. I wanted to play. We were begging to play an SEC team and we were hoping it was Alabama." Fisher is a former assistant of Alabama boss Nick Saban.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher has reportedly signed an extension that will keep him with the school through January of 2019.

Fisher gets a pay raise to the tune of $4.1 million. His previous contract paid $2.75 million annually. The head coach was rumored as a possible replacement for Mack Brown at Texas, but this will prevent that move from happening.

Texas' list of HC candidates includes Florida State's Jimbo FIsher, Baylor's Art Briles, Vanderbilt's James Franklin, and Louisville's Charlie Strong, according to the Dallas Morning News.

"The sources indicated that a hire may not come until early January, after the bowls," Chuck Carlton writes. "Texas looks like they’re going to be patient about this," Carlton's source added.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher agreed to a new deal that will keep him with the school for the next five to seven years.

Fisher gets a raise from $2.7 million a year to $4.1 million. This comes on the heels of a rumor that Fisher could be a candidate for the Texas job, if it opens up.

ESPN.com's Chris Low believes Florida State's Jimbo Fisher will be on Texas' radar if Mack Brown retires.

"Getting Fisher out of Tallahassee could be a chore," Low wrote. "If the Seminoles, as expected, play in the Vizio BCS National Championship, that adds another month to the timetable before Fisher would be available. He's also sitting on a gold mine in terms of talent and has an easier pathway every year to the national title game with the Seminoles playing in the ACC." This speculation could be rendered a moot point, of course, if Brown sticks around for another season.
