If not for Manuel's injury, beating Oklahoma, Clemson and Wake Forest were probably real possibilities. His shoulder was still bothering him those games, but the defense did end up tanking. That Virginia loss sucked. The team was incredibly young last year. The schedule is a whole lot easier this year.
Clemson and VT will probably be the toughest games of the year.
Every year "FSU is back and will challenge for a top 5 ranking!" and ends up fluttering about.
Preseason last year they were #6, final rankings #23 and 9-4.
This year, low and behold, #6 again and EJ Manuel has proven to be nothing special at QB.
