The Football Over-Unders for 2015: Florida State
This article is the first in a series of articles in which the Confidential opines regarding the over/under for football wins in 2015. We’ll take a cursory look at the schedule and determine what we think is the point where folks will struggle to select “over” or “under.” We hope people will share their comments as to “why” they are going over/under. If you disagree with our over/under choice, of course, feel free to let us know too. The first team up: Florida State. We are going with an over/under of 10.5 regular season wins.

Summary: Florida State is hard this year. This team could go 12-0 and nobody would be shocked. However, after losing Winston and a second-straight set of studs to the NFL, the Seminoles are bound to take a step back. Whether that is a step back to 11 wins or 8 wins is anybody’s guess. Look, Wake Forest upset them a few years back. Boston College has played them tough recently. Syracuse and North Carolina State hung on for way too long last year. With road games at Clemson, Georgia Tech, and Florida–as well as tough home games against Miami and Louisville, the Confidential sees one or two losses. And if that is a rebuilding year, then Jimbo Fisher is doing a great job in Tallahassee. The Confidential goes with an over/under of 10.5 for the Seminoles.
What do you think? Over or under? Let us know.
