FSU needs a serious peptalk




Boy does FSU need a pep talk badly.

 

Quick stats:

--FSU won more games in the 1990s than any other team. 88% of all the games that FSU played in the 90s were wins. No other team in any other decade had as good a win percentage.

--Even though FSU has lingered in mediocrity lately, FSU has still won 67% of its games since 2000, ranking FSU 19th for the decade in terms of win percentage. Florida is 10 spots ahead at 9th with 75%, and Miami is 11th with 74.1%.

--After the 2000 and 2001 seasons, when Florida had back to back 10 win seasons, they went 8-5, 8-5, 7-5, and 9-3 before winning a national championship in 2006.

--After the 2003 season when UM went 11-2(FSU went 10-3 and UF went 8-5), UM has gone 9-3, 9-3, 7-6, 5-7, and 7-6.

--All the "major" teams that we see on the national level have had bad stretches.

--Ohio State went 6-6 in 1999 after going 11-1 in 1998. In the next two seasons they went 8-4 and 7-5.

--In 2002, USC had their first 10 win season since 1988.

--In 2000, Oklahoma had their first 10 win season since 1987.

--In 2001, when LSU went 10-3, they were coming off of seasons of 8-4 in 2000, 3-8 in 1999, 4-7 in 1998, and 9-3 in 1997.

--In 2004, Auburn had their first 10 win season since 1997. Sandwiched between 1997 and 2004 was a combined season record of 41-32.

--Michigan, with three 10-win seasons in the 00's won just 3 games last year.

--Tennesee had a losing season in 2005 and 2008.

--Between 1993 and 2001, Nebraska went 102-12. Since they've gone 53-36 with two losing seasons.

--Penn State won 10 games in 1999 and in the next 5 seasons went 26-33 with four of the five seasons being losing seasons.

Florida State's fall from grace has been slow. That is the only real difference between FSU and the other major programs. But FSU is ranked 11th in terms of win percentages for college programs. Behind FSU is Georgia, LSU, Miami, Auburn, and Florida. In that order.

FSU will bounce back.
