FSU football head coach Mike Norvell has taken a program from the depths of hell in 2020 to an undefeated season with a real chance to win a National Title in 2023. The Noles got robbed of that opportunity, and we'll never know how that would have turned out, but Mike Norvell had FSU football in position. That's all you can ask of a coach. Has Mike Norvell been perfect, and do I agree with everything he does? Not, but no head coach can accomplish what he's done at FSU without knowing what he's doing.

Next, it was he can't get quarterbacks. Next, it was he's using the portal too much. Next, it was he couldn't recruit high school players. Mike Norvell has proven everyone wrong every step of the way. He's one of the top-paid head coaches in the game, and one of the most prepared. Why does a portion of the fan base think they could run the program better? I'll tell you, had most of them had their wish, FSU wouldn't be where they are now. Here are three thoughts on the coaching staff receiving contract extensions.
