FSU football: Fans react to ACC’s 2020 revamped schedule

FSU football already had a difficult schedule before the COVID-19 pandemic. The new ACC revamped schedule seems more difficult.

FSU football had the mantra of play, anyone, anywhere, and anytime as Bobby Bowden was building one of the greatest football programs of all-time.

It looks as though new FSU football head coach Mike Norvell will start his era in much the same way according to the new revamped schedule released by the ACC Wednesday afternoon.

The schedule will feature 10 ACC conference games with one non-conference game.

There will be no divisions within the conference and the two teams with the highest winning percentage will compete for the conference championship in December.

That last tweet is so true. Mike Norvell and staff got the short end of the stick on this one. They lost winnable games against West Virginia, Samford, Wake Forest, Syracuse, and Boston College. Notre Dame and two teams favored to compete for the ACC Coastal Championship were added in North Carolina and Virginia.

The ACC did do the Noles a solid by adding Georgia Tech and Duke, I suppose. FSU fans will have a decent home slate with Clemson, Georgia Tech, UNC, Pittsburgh, and Virginia traveling to Tallahassee.

The road slate isn’t too terrible outside of having to travel to Notre Dame again after playing there in 2018.

The order in which these games will be played will be huge in determining wins and losses. The dates and times of the games will be released at a later date, with the first games slated to take place September 7-12.

Here’s to hoping the Noles can avoid a murderer’s row of games early in the season. This team will need to find confidence early, and the original schedule was set up for that to happen before going into the Clemson game as underdogs. At least two of the games I wanted added to the schedule came to fruition.

At the very least, it looks like the possibility of football is still on the table, so let’s rejoice in that. The contrary to that would be much worse than anything the ACC could do to the Noles schedule-wise.
