As I wrote the other day:
"FSU got out of the WVU game, which it did not want to play, without having to cancel it. They're going to get paid per the contract. They get to claim they went after top teams to replace WVU, thus getting to keep the 'anyone, anywhere' image that worked pre-BCS, and they get to schedule a much more winnable game."
Are they having a more difficult time scheduling this game than originally anticipated? Yep.
FSU doesn't want to schedule another 1-AA game, with Murray State already in the fold. And they simply cannot schedule non-conference road games with the nine-game conference schedule introduced by the ACC. That means whatever team comes to Tally will not get a return trip anytime soon, if ever. Oh, and the game needs to be against one of the bottom feeders of the FBS, i.e. a team that has missed a bowl in at least two of the last three seasons.
