FSU is the best team in the counrty and AT WORST number 2. We've beaten the s**t outta everybody and the Miami game was an off game. 2 wins against two top 7 teams by an average of 30 pts is ridiculous. Honestly my vote goes Oregon v FSU in the NCG. I'm hoping that Bama loses because these are the teams I think that are most deserving. However I believe FSU belongs in there above both other teams. I'm homering and I dont give a f**k.
I've been through the dog s**t years of FSU with Rix, Weatherford, Sexton, Lee and a host of other losers I can't even remember. Things got better with Manuel and now Winston is the new FSU legend. This feels as good for me as 2011 did for Niners.
Beating the s**t outta UF will feel awesome.

State your case then. I stated mine.
To begin with I think on any given Saturday Missouri, Oregon, Stanford, or Baylor could beat FSU. I would put my money on Alabama without even thinking twice.
Yes, FSU has been winning in a very convincing fashion, but scoring 50 on Maryland, Neveda, or Bethune-Cookman isn't saying much.
Do you realize how easy FSU's schedule is?
The SEC eats itself. Georgia, Florida, Bama, Missouri, Texas AM, LSU are all capable of beating each other on the right day. The lower tier conference games have the potential of being a trap because they're so competitive and there's no margin for error.
The PAC12 eats itself. Oregon, Stanford, Oregon St, Washington, ASU, USC are all capable of beating each other. Although this year the degree of separation between Stanford/Oregon and the rest of the PAC is much wider. Regardless Stanfords loss to Utah showed how easily lesser program in conference can steal a win.
The Big 12 eats itself.Baylor, Texas, Oklahoma, Okla St., Texas Tech are all capable of beating each other. If you want to talk about blowout wins Baylor has been averaging 70 points of game, and BTW their remaining schedule is Okla 10, Okla St. 14, Texas Tech 25, TCU, Texas, and then the BIG10CG. Baylors schedule is monumentally harder than FSU therefore is more indicative of a high ranking.
FSU gets top teir recruiting classes and then faces bottom rung opponents.
Sure. Miami and Clemson are ranked but those are not signature wins IMO. Both teams had glaring weaknesses that any top tier could exploit. When FSU wasn't playing Miami or Clemson they were playing nobodies. They will continue to play nobodies till the ACCCG. Baylor, Oregon, and Alabama have had exponentially harder roads to travel and while I wouldn't deny FSU if they were one of two undefeated team I wouldn't vote them in ahead of undefeated Oregon, Baylor, or Alabama.
Now let me clarify something. I think FSU is a great team. They're a good team at every phase, but I've watched Oregon, Baylor, and Alabama perform at the highest level at every phase week in and week out all year though against tougher competition. If Oregon and Bama go undefeated I highly doubt anyone is going to say that FSU is more deserving.
