Last week we invited the community to play coach and fortune teller by predicting FSU's opening day starting lineup. The participation was excellent, as were the picks. Now it's time to share the results. From the data collected, we have three separate teams, all of which will be led by fabulous fantasy coaches. As always, we encourage the community to participate in the comment section. If you are not yet a member, we encourage you to take a moment and join.

Keep in mind this was an exercise in trying to accurately predict the players that will be in the starting lineup, not necessarily the ones you want to see. The final results, with every entry, are here. The final, final results will be shared after the official opening day lineup is revealed.

We start with the team chosen by the TN staff. Countless hours of research and film study led to this carefully selected starting lineup. This roster is loaded with talent and capable of championship caliber play.

ESPNICH All-Nole Team (1 survey)

Head Coach: Name unknown (probably Magnusson)

Bio: Will beat you with his/her team, then trade players and beat you with yours. Personnel choices suggest this might be the only truly sane person in this community. My only advice for you, coach.....STAY AWESOME.
