A computer model simulates the season 50,000 times. Based on those 50K simulations, Florida State is predicted to go 10-2, win the re-match with Miami (of Florida) in the ACC Championship Game, and beat Oklahoma State in the Orange Bowl....finishing #4.
If FSU turns in this type of season, any "reasonable" fan would be *ecstatic*, and sets FSU up to enter the key 2014 season in prime position to take 1 of the playoff spots. It also would solidify Jimbo Fisher's regime & the direction he is taking the program.
In case you're wondering, 'Bama wins another MNC, Miami (of Florida) STILL hasn't won the All Canes Conference, and bottom-feeder SEC fans *still* cheer for their conference over their team.
P.S. - In 42,000 of the 50K simulations, Trickett gets fired......so there's that.
