Another year, another summer of preseason love for Florida State

200

I like to think that, many years ago, when some brilliant, overworked hack coined the phrase "on paper" to describe the gap between potential and reality, he had Florida State football in mind.... I get it. I do. I don't even have a good complaint about the depth chart, which looks, as always, too stacked to fail.... The schedule, featuring not just one but two FCS patsies out of the gate and both Clemson and Florida in Tallahassee, is as friendly as ever.... That's how easy it is. It is so easy, it almost qualifies as boilerplate: Almost everyone in the business has been writing essentially the exact same thingfor ten years, replacing the names as necessary. We've yet to be right. (Personally, I was convinced that last year, Fisher's second, would be the leap. Wrong again.) But at some point, we think, it's going to happen. It has to. If you keep throwing enough darts at the board for long enough, eventually one of them is going to hit its target. And who wants to be the bitter cynic who sat that round out?
