Football:

SBNation’s Bill Connelly continues his offseason preview series with a team that should be of great interest to Seminole fans. Connelly previews FSU’s Labor Day opponent Virginia Tech and discusses the recent turbulence surrounding their defensive depth chart.

Based on Connelly’s previews, we are keeping track of the Top 5 things to know about Florida State’s opposition this year and putting it all in one place.

The Seminoles had 2 players make the preseason All-ACC team. For comparison, the team had 3 players receive that same distinction before the 2017 season.

Every team has the opportunity to make the College Football Playoff, including FSU. How likely are the ’Noles to accomplish that feat in Willie Taggart’s first year as head coach? Bud Elliott breaks down the odds.

One of our more average writers guides you through the No. 41 play on our Top 100 countdown. Try to look past his mediocre command of the English language and relive one of the greatest play calls in FSU football history.

As always, feel free to catch up on any that you missed.
