NC State head coach Dave Doeren apologized to FSU for accusing the Seminoles of faking injuries during the schools' game last weekend.
"I left an emotional locker room and took those emotions with me to the press conference," Doeren tweeted. The head coach previously accused FSU of slowing the second half tempo by falling to the ground with fake injuries. Others have accused opponents of such acts, but few head coaches.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher responded with anger to the news that The Citadel's offensive lineman were targeting his player's knees on Saturday.

"When you play these kind of teams, they’re constantly cutting the knees and ankles," Fisher said. The Seminoles saw three defensive lineman -- Eddie Goldman, Nile Lawrence-Stample and Justin Shanks -- get hurt in the game due to the questionable blocking strategy. Fisher wouldn't say that Citadel was playing dirty, but he clearly wasn't happy. "Those guys that cut and block like this, it’s crazy," Fisher said. "I’d rather play more conventional teams, just because of the chance of injuries that occurred." If something good can come from this, we hope it's that team's at the highest level discontinue the practice of bringing in sacrificial sub-division lambs.

Bovada lists Florida State as a 4/1 favorite to repeat as champions.

Seminoles' QB Jameis Winston is also Bovada's favorite to win the Heisman. Following the Seminoles, per Bovada: Alabama 5/1, Oregon 15/2, Auburn 10/1, Oklahoma 10/1, UCLA 14/1, Georgia 16/1, Ohio State 20/1, LSU 22/1 and Michigan State 25/1. South Carolina and Baylor are two notable teams that Bovada thinks are on the outside looking in at the moment.

Florida State was ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press preseason college football poll.

The Seminoles received 57 of 60 first-place votes from the media. FSU is followed by No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Oregon and No. 4 Oklahoma, each of whom received one first-place vote. Rounding out the top six is Ohio State at No. 5 and Auburn at No. 6. Led by reigning Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, Florida State is looking to defend its national title.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher reiterated his stance against college QBs seeking personal coaching from position "gurus."

"We've got good quarterback coaches," Fisher said. "My guys aren't going out there. I'll coach them. When they go to pro ball, they can do whatever they want. We'll coach our guys. I don't think it benefits you." Fisher is not alone in this opinion, as Auburn's Gus Malzahn shares the same stance. Our biggest issue with this is that college coaches have a limited number of hours they are allowed to spend with players during the offseason, so restricting their outside coaching might be limiting quarterbacks' practice reps. Fisher and Malzahn could be worried that their players will be taught something that goes against the team's mindset.

The College Football Playoff teams will be at 12:45 ET announced on December 7, 2014.

Four teams will participate in the new postseason format. Nearly every outlet has been calling for a playoff system for the better part of a decade, and while we have to settle for a three game tournament, it is better than the alternative. At least we hope so.

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."

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.
Sat, Dec 7, 2013 08:59:00 PM'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.
