FSU is the most impressive team I’ve seen in college football this season. What they did at Clemson last Saturday was mind boggling. They have the best player I’ve seen in QB Jameis Winston, and the most impressive victory. So why is it that Alabama and Oregon get priority over them in the rankings? What have they done that’s more impressive? And what will they do moving forward that would deserve priority? If all three teams stay undefeated it would be absurd to leave FSU out of the national championship game.

43-35 ATS this season
Wake +23 at Miami, Canes win
Ga Tech -10 at UVA
Pitt -6 at Navy
State +32 at FSU, Noles win
Clemson -14 at Md
UNC -7.5 vs BC
VT -13.5 vs Duke
Cocks +3 at Mizzu
Bama -28 vs Vols
Ducks -22.5 vs UCLA

Top 25
FSU, Bama, Ore, Mizzu, Ohio St, Baylor, Miami, T Tech, Stan, Aub, UCLA, Clem, VT, Ok St, Okla, Fresno, UCF, L’vile, NIU, Neb, LSU, A&M, Wisc, S Caro, And Michigan.

On paper this should be an easier win for the Panthers than their Giants, Rams, and Vikings victories. The Buccaneers are in initiated disaster. They have a coach they despise, a Quarterback that’s nowhere near ready to be a starter, and their best player, running back Doug Martin, is lost for the year. So, there are no excuses for Carolina. Use the same offensive formula that’s brought home easy wins in the last two weeks, and they’ll have a wining record for the first time in five years.
