I'm putting the spin in spin here, but with FSU's reputation as of late, if FSU came out and beat the Hurricanes and then BYU, the respect we would have been given would have been negatively disproportionate to our accomplishment. Whereas, the Hurricanes respect is going to get positively disproportionate to their accomplishments.
In any case, our team should be focused on getting into that ACC Championship game. Miami most likely will be our opponent and will be coming in much over hyped as ESPN is soaking up the love for a team and a quarterback who is quietly proving that if you as so much as touch him he will throw an interception (trust me on this... no one is talking about this because no one has really pressured Jaccori).
We will be coming in as a team that will be consistently making people look bad. ESPN will play this down, as Miami will most likely beat Oklahoma and
ACC Championship game will be served with a nice can of Vengeance. A can of Vengeance that is stacked high and tall.
Vengeance against BC
Vengeance against GT
Vengeance against WF
And Vengeance against a conference that has stifled the Noles enough for the past 5 years. Vengeance against those who believe they should take the place of a storied and resilient program that put in the hours, that took the chances and took their shots.
If the players @ FSU understand what it means to be a Seminole, what it means to dominate week in and week out--the work, the toughness, the stamina, the focus and the aggression--then this will be a great year of Vengeance.
So lets enjoy the ferocity at which our players are playing for the moment and know if they keep it up they are going to be in for one hell of an ACC championship game. A game to right a wrong done early this year.
