Florida State is ranked number 1 in the nation before they play one down. I cannot help but remember in 1988 - they were preseason number 1. They even cut a rap video called the "Seminole Shuffle." Then they shuffled into Miami opening day and lost on national TV - 31-0. They won the rest of their games that year - we went to the Sugar Bowl to watch them beat Auburn.
Being cautious - the preseason hype is just over the top. All it takes is an injury or two - or an arrest - and the season is over.
