On the offensive side of the ball, not many teams were better in 2022 than the Florida State Seminoles.
They were one of the nation’s most explosive offenses, generating 97 plays of more than 20 yards, ranking behind only Georgia and Western Kentucky. They were top five in the country in third-down efficiency, converting at a 51% clip. And they were top ten in the country in rushing yards per carry.
Still, there’s room for improvement.
On this episode of the Seminole Wrap podcast, Brian Pellerin, Jon Marchant and Ben Meyerson dive into the numbers and look at what could take Mike Norvell’s group from one of the best to the best in 2023.
- How can Florida State get more consistent while remaining an explosive threat?
- Can the offense sustain their success on third down?
- What was missing from FSU’s lack of success in the red zone last season and how can they improve it this year?
- What do newcomers like Keon Coleman, Jaheim Bell and others bring that was missing a year ago?
Plus, the guys play a little 2013 Florida State trivia as they compete to name the 6 rushing leaders from the national champion Noles.
