You have them ahead of 2-loss USC and Texas teams, and 3-loss Florida and Auburn teams. I know they beat BC and Alabama which are two pretty good wins IMO but they have had some tough losses. Miami at home hurts big time IMO. Only USC's loss to Stanford rivals that. Also, watching that FSU offense play football is just painful the majority of the time. I just don't see the resume or potential with putting them ahead of all four of those teams. But you usually have reasoning for your rankings so why did you put them there?
Good question. I really struggled with this one, and in hindsight, I agree that I have them overrated or I have my 21-25 teams underrated. I probably got a bit giddy over the BC victory.
I see Miami as a "better" loss than USC's loss to Stanford or Michigan's loss to App State. Plus FSU has quality wins over Alabama, @BC, and a "quality" loss, staying within 10 @Clemson. In my head, I see their body of work as more impressive than Texas' (no quality wins, a quality loss (-7) to OU on a nuetral field) and USC's (no quality wins, a quality loss (-7) @UO, and a bad loss at home to Stanford). With that said, FSU's qualities are rivaled by that of USF, Aub, Ala, Kentucky, and Cal. So next week, I'll either have to move them down, or move the others up depending on what transpires next Saturday. Good catch.
