We get it, Florida State Seminoles have speed. But don't get it twisted, it's not SEC SPEED.

It's the type of speed that went up against: Nevada, Bethune-Cookman, Idaho etc.. The combined record of these teams comes to a fantastic 9-27. Florida State's best win(51-14) came on the road to Clemson who is ranked 13th in the country. I give them credit for that win but not as highly as oddsmakers and gamblers seem to give them. In that game, I stand pat in my belief T.Boyd was staring down his WR's at such an alarming rate it was was clear to me he pretty much gave up after the 1st quarter.

So while this Florida State "speed" was beating up on injury riddled teams such as Maryland and Florida, Auburn was putting in work. Perfecting their offense and improving week after week in the best conference in the country. Yes, Auburn played their fair share of crap such as W.Carolina and Florida Atlantic but the overall body of work that impressed me more and most was Auburn. Sure, Auburn's defense gives up way to many yards and way to many points but what makes Florida State's offense that much better or different than any other offense Auburn's defense has already faced? Go ahead, I'll wait.

Auburn +9½ (-108) pinnacle is locked in.

Auburn getting no respect.This is a team of DESTINY!Hard to believe they were pickem against Missouri.Alabama would have been 9'point fav over Missouri.After the Georgia and Bama games you bet against Auburn at your own risk.Love them + the points and on the money line.

Notre Dame was the team of destiny last year. I expect the same thing to happen to Auburn. A whole month to prepare against a ONE dimensional offense. This game will be ugly. Florida State will roll big!!! Winston will tear this weak Auburn secondary up. 48-17 Seminoles.

Very early and things may very well change, but one thing that doesn't is the fact that Auburn conceded 425 yards per game while gaining just over 500 on the season. Conversely, FSU gained 530 while giving up ONLY 270. We can all argue until the cows come home about SoS, conference, etc....but, the fact of the matter is that if the Seminoles bring their "A" game (and I certainly see no reason why they won't), this one won't be close. The fact that FSU is a +42 ppg as opposed to Auburn's +16 must also be considered. I'll lay the points without ANY hesitation here......***Florida State -9 (-110) ~ An absolute steal at this price. I don't expect there to be a SINGLE moment of doubt....I will no doubt be adding to this as time rolls on. The Tigers will not be able to create the luck they've become so accustomed to and it will show on the scoreboard. I will truly be surprised if State does not win by 21+. That's all.....Beer

FTR ~ I put it into the Picks' at FSU -7.5 (-110). Truly shows just how crazy those lines can be.....

Just to save me the time, what surface is in the Rose Bowl after the renovations? Natural grass or turf? Thanks......

FSU DOES have SEC speed... you're trippin.. the kids FSU recruits are the same ones that Florida, Bama, LSU all those guys wants... look at their recruiting classes... FSU is just as big/fast/strong as anybody in the country.

Casey said it best. Unemployed is right about the schedule, it's weak. But to say FSU doesn't have speed gives this post zero credibility.

The Florida game was very telling. A team with no QB, no offense and a banged up defense hung with Florida State for a whole half. What do you think Auburn with a QB and offense is going to do?
