12 Days of ACC Football: Florida State

Aug. 26, 2010

In preparation for the 2010 football season, the Atlantic Coast Conference will unveil the "12 Days of ACC Football" beginning on August 16th. The teams will be unveiled each midday through August 27 based on predicted finish and alternating divisions, first Atlantic, then Coastal. Once again this year, each team's preview will be written by that school's RepresentACC.com Campus Correspondent. Each team page will also include a preseason video and preview information. Today's feature is Florida State.

For the first time since 1975, the iconic Bobby Bowden will not be roaming the sidelines as Florida State's head coach. While the change shouldn't be too drastic since new head coach Jimbo Fisher has been FSU's offensive coordinator since 2007, it should be a surreal feeling for everyone when Fisher - not Bowden - leads the Seminoles onto the field against Samford in their September 4 opener. Even through transition, one constant in Tallahassee is high expectations, and that trend continues as the 2010 season approaches.
