Our FanPulse interactive platform that surveys Tomahawk Nation staff and readers isn’t just about generating a weekly top 25— it’ll also gauge your confidence in the direction of the Florida State football program. And the results after week one of the 2019 season are... not high.

Week-one confidence level

Of 54 college communities participating, 20 answered with 100% confidence, a number that seems really high, but hey, it’s early, and that’s their business. The fanbases with 100% confidence in the direction of their respective programs:

  • Auburn
  • Baylor
  • Clemson
  • Colorado
  • Duke
  • Georgia
  • Iowa
  • Kansas State
  • Kentucky
  • LSU
  • North Carolina
  • Oklahoma
  • Syracuse
  • Texas A&M
  • Texas Tech
  • Virginia
  • Wake Forest
  • Washington
  • West Virginia
  • Wisconsin

FSU’s rivals are also very high on their team’s trajectory: Florida fans registered a 96%, while Miami came in at 99%. The only programs with lower confidence rates than the ’Noles:

  • Arizona: 8%
  • Missouri: 27%
  • Pitt: 35%
  • Tennessee: 32%
  • UCLA: 28%
  • Virginia Tech: 32%

At just one game into this season, this data is tied closely to each team’s success in that lone contest. All the teams at 100% won, except Duke— which lost to Alabama. And all the teams ranked below the Seminoles lost.

Of course, this is year two of the Willie Taggart era with the Seminoles; you’ve gotta wonder what Clemson’s number would have been in Dabo Swinney’s second full year at Clemson— when he went 6-6.

Stay tuned: we’ll monitor this number throughout the season. Want your opinion heard? You can become a TN FanPulse voter by signing up here.
