Exclamation What Went Wrong FSU?
[let's see how long it takes someone to comment on this post!]

Florida State once RULED the football world. 2 National Championships, and top 4 finishes every year from 1987 to 2000.

Then came the crash. Oh, not as bad as Duke, but by contrast it seemed bad. Consecutive 7-6 finishes in 2006 and 2007. How much of it was due to coaches simply getting too old? Check out this graph:

The black trend lines show offensive scoring going down and defensive points yield going up... until the coaches were replaced. Now things are headed in the right direction.

1) Mark Richt left to become Georgia's head coach

2) Chuck Amato left to become NC State's head coach

Staff turnover did 'em in.

Thanks! I was so focused on the numbers I forgot about those 2 coaches...
