NFL Media ranks Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher as the No. 7 most attractive college head coach to the NFL.
Fisher is 58-10 since replacing Bobby Bowden before the 2010 season. "Fisher has been producing first-round quarterbacks and NFL talent at an impressive clip, so it should come as no surprise that some pro franchises are already interested in making him a head coach," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "He fields very good defenses for an offensive-minded head coach, and his offensive system would need few alterations to adapt to the pro game. He has not ruled out moving up to the NFL, so this is certainly a possibility down the road and it could result in a good fit." Indeed, Fisher has seen a school-record 18 players drafted over the past two years. Jun 8 - 7:07 PM

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher is the sixth-best head coach in the country, according to NFL Media.

Fisher is 58-10 since replacing Bobby Bowden before the 2010 season. "It's hard to believe that Florida State is the only head-coaching gig Fisher has ever held, as he's quickly returned the Seminoles to glory," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "Life after Jameis Winston will be interesting to navigate, but Fisher has proven he knows how to win games and there certainly will be plenty of talent on the roster given how well he's recruited and developed players." Fisher has shipped a school-record 18 players to the NFL draft over the past two years.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher signed a contract extension that will keep him with the program through the 2022 season.

Financial terms of the pact were not released. Fisher's current contract, which he signed about one year ago, pays him about $4.1 million per season. "I appreciate that FSU believes in what we are doing and supports our goal of maintaining one of the best programs in the country," Fisher said in a statement. "It is a privilege to coach the young men in our program. It is truly a family." Fisher, who is 58-10 since replacing Bobby Bowden before the 2010 season, has sent a school-record 18 players into the NFL draft over the last two years.

Florida State moved up from No. 4 to No. 3 in the final College Football Playoff standings.

The third-seeded Seminoles have a date with No. 2 Oregon in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. Jeff Long, the Selection Committee Chair, said the teams ranked 3-6 were extremely close, prompting re-voting and re-visiting. That said, it appears as though Florida State stamped its ticket into the playoff by beating Georgia Tech in the ACC championship game on Saturday, jumping from No. 4 to No. 3. The Seminoles snuck by a number of teams that ranged from mediocre to good (but not elite) this season, a group including Oklahoma State, Clemson, Notre Dame, Louisville, Miami, Boston College, Florida and GTU. While those struggles didn't cost the 'Noles a ticket into the playoffs, it did move them out of a slot in the Sugar Bowl, which is obviously far closer to campus than California's Rose Bowl. That makes for a slightly harder road to a repeat.

According to a report by the Orlando Sentinel, Florida State will receive $3.5 million for their game against Ol' Miss to open the 2016 season.

No word as to how much money Ol' Miss will be making off of the match in the Citrus Bowl. Neutral site games generally have these kinds of big paydays. Earlier this season, Alabama and West Virginia split $6.4 million to face-off in Atlanta. Ol' Miss and Florida State have played just once, back in 1961 when Ol' Miss blanked the Seminoles 33-0. Revenge is a dish that takes decades to marinate.

Sources told ESPN that Florida State and Ol' Miss will play each other in the Citrus Bowl to open the 2016 season.

The game is reportedly set for Monday, September 5, 2016. This will be the first game between Florida State and Ol' Miss in over half-a-century, and only the second meeting overall. Back in 1961, Ol' Miss shutout the Seminoles 33-0. Back then, the idea of landing on the moon was just in its infancy and The Beatles were still The Quarreymen. Yesterday, a probe landed on a comet and posted pictures to Twitter. Times have changed.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher said that he had no reaction to the current CFP ranking which had his team ranked third.

When asked what he thought of Tuesday's ranking, Fisher said, "Nothing... That's their opinion. We got to get ready to play Miami. Things will always take care of themselves. I don't mean that in any disregard. Whether we'd have been No. 1, it'd have been the same." Florida State had previously been ranked second (behind Mississippi State) by the playoff committee, before being jumped by Oregon. TCU is currently fourth in the rankings. "I thought the name of the game was to keep winning," said Fisher.

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd wrote that Florida State's up-and-down style of play was hurting their perception.

Florida State is undefeated, but has trailed against Clemson, NC State, Notre Dame and Louisville. In those games, they were behind a combined 52 points. Vegas has taken note. The Seminoles are just a 1 1/2 point favorite against Miami. Over the summer, Florida State was favored by 17 in the same game. Part of this is based on the fact that the team was so dominant on their way to the 2013 national title that they were almost bound to look more pedestrian this season. Still, their offense has dropped from second in the nation in scoring to 16th. Their defense has dropped from No. 3 all the way to No. 50. Quarterback Jameis Winston has been inconsistent, but he's far from the only reason that FSU's level of play has dropped off.

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.

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."
