The CFB rankings committee will release its initial rankings for the 2023 College Football Playoffs on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.
It has been a long time since FSU football fans have had to concern themselves with where the Noles would rank in the process.
They were part of the inaugural College Football Playoff rankings in 2014 after winning the 2013 National Championship, checking in as the No. 4 seed even though they were undefeated and winners of 20+ consecutive games, and won the ACC Championship.
Ironically, FSU finds themselves in a similar situation, winners of 14 consecutive games (dating back to last season), and undefeated in the 2023 season.
They have played one of the toughest schedules and dominated nearly every team they’ve played aside from Boston College and Clemson. Half of the team had the flu in the Boston College game, and Clemson at Death Valley is always a tough place to win.
Nevertheless, the bias or hate towards FSU football from talking heads in the media persists, just as did when folks made up terms like “game control” to justify where to rank FSU.
Here are three questions for the committee as they look to release their initial CFP rankings for 2023.
