FSU football was among the odds-on favorites to compete for a National Title in 2023 as they had a ton of production returning on both sides of the ball and one of the best quarterbacks returning in Jordan Travis. However, Jordan Travis and others who will likely be NFL Draft picks have exited the program after finishing the 2023 season 13-0 and winning the ACC Championship. Of course, FSU got snubbed from the College Football Playoff, and many folks believe FSU will fall off considerably in 2024. That's mostly coming from rival fans wishing and praying, but it's reasonable to expect some falloff.
It's incredibly difficult for teams to go 13-0, and FSU has a lot of production to replace. However, FSU brought in a talented 2024 recruiting class and is adding some top-tier talent from the transfer portal. They filled important positions like quarterback with former five-star DJ Uiaglalelei and defensive end with Marvin Jones Jr. They have two more former top 100 players added from the portal and will continue to acquire talent. The falloff isn't going to be anywhere near what rival fans hope for in this 2024 bridge season. The Noles are among the betting favorites to compete for a National Title in 2024.
The Noles have the eighth-best odds to do it, and I'd argue they should be in front of LSU. Do you know who we don't see in these odds? The Miami Hurricanes or the Florida Gators. I believe Florida fans understand what's coming for them in 2024, but Miami fans will be vocal as the offseason champions again. Miami still can't find a quarterback in the transfer portal, and if they don't find one in the next few days, they'll likely have to ride with Jacurri Brown, who played in the bowl game loss against Rutgers. Rest easy Nole fans, the Noles should continue to run the state for the foreseeable future!
