FSU football will have plenty of expectations that come with the hiring of their new head coach – can one of those come true with a conference crown?

In the week that Willie Taggart has been the 11th all-time head coach for the FSU football program, there is a general consensus from everyone (well, except those living in Eugene, Oregon) that he has done everything right: from a press conference that was a home run to actively recruiting top players, the new head Nole is making people very happy.

Of course, the real test will be starting September 3rd when Taggart coaches his first game for the Seminoles as they host Virginia Tech in a primetime showdown on Labor Day. Taggart was brought in to do something that hasn’t happened since the 2014 season – win the ACC Championship and take the Noles back to the College Football Playoff.

Expectations are always going to be high with FSU football – but can Taggart come into Tallahassee and take this team to the conference title game and actually win the crown in his first season? We break down the pros and cons on the issue to see if the new sideline leader can do something that hasn’t happened in the ACC since 2001 – bring home the title in his first season.
