FSU's fall from top 4 dominance had nothing to do with antiquated coaching, improved level of play in the ACC, or the increased importance of money in college football. "Fourteen straight years of national dominance by FSU has been followed by 11 years of irrelevance. That’s not an anomaly and it’s not cyclical. It’s a program that has reinvented itself by assimilating into its surroundings. Now a bunch of cash is suddenly going to make everything better? Go ahead and get fat and happy by feeding at the Big 12 trough, FSU. The slaughter is coming."
