Cosmos and theghost, when you have a "George Foreman" type of schedule then it is MNC or bust. Ever since I heard Bowden make that comment about George Foreman I have never respected FSU ever again. I myself will never be able to respect any of FSU's teams like I do many of the SEC teams that have won the MNC because it has everything to do with the overall body of work. Our 1996, 2006, and 2008 teams have a body of work that makes FSU's schedule this year look like horse $***. What it boils down to is this: FSU is undefeated against a schedule that currently consists of no top 10 teams. Have they beaten them by a lot? Sure. FSU's schedule and performance is what it is. Is it impressive? Sure. Is it as impressive as the past 7 national championship teams? No. Are there teams from the past and the present that had a more impressive overall body of work that never played in the MNC? Absolutely. I can think of several.
