Lofty expectations follow first-year coach Jimbo Fisher and the Seminoles into the 2010 season, which isn't really surprising. Florida State, the consensus favorite to represent the Atlantic Division in the ACC Championship game according to preseason publications, should feel right at home as a marked team. ACC media members have tabbed the 'Noles as either the ACC or Atlantic Division favorite 17 times in 18 seasons of league membership during voting at the annual kickoff event. The lone exception came at the 2008 ACC Kickoff, when FSU was picked to finish third in the Atlantic. Ironically, the 'Noles tied Boston College for the best record in the division, though the Eagles advanced to the ACC title game on a tie-breaker. The 'Noles have responded by capturing 12 ACC titles, the last of which came in 2005.
Seminoles As Favorites Again?
