Default Re: Florida State

I think it is somewhat of a wash. Fla State was a great team this year. They were talked about as a team of the century, which was unrealistic. They, and other good ACC, Big 10, and PAC 12 teams get ranked higher than they should based on playing weak schedules. They get an inflated view of how good they are. It leaves them more vulnerable to getting beaten when they play a really good team. Remember Dabo saying that Clem would beat Fla State five out of ten games? That was based on his inflated view and tendency to overspeak. There is some ranking benefit to those weak-schedule teams, but some of it gets washed out in the end.
