Quiet Confidence

I was one of the few beating the drum they could be better than most gave them credit for after the spring game. The coaching staff filled holes via the transfer portal, and the majority of those expected to contribute were spring enrollees, which will prove more valuable than most realize.

That time provided an opportunity to learn the schemes and the coaches the opportunity to learn their strengths and weaknesses. In turn, the coaches could communicate what they needed to work on during the summer to improve those weaknesses before fall camp.

Mike Norvell stresses the importance of getting the right fit in the program from the transfer portal and from the prep ranks.

The way he and the three players communicated with the media at the ACC Kickoff event seemed different than in years past.

All of the advanced stats models predict a better FSU football team in 2022, and some media are starting to drink the kool-aid too. I’ve said it repeatedly this should be the best FSU team we’ve seen since 2016.

This team has more experience than last year and arguably more talent overall, and last year’s team was nearly identical to 2017 stat’s wise.
