Playing with a target on your back

Florida State may be the class of the ACC, but that does not necessarily mean the Seminoles will run away easily with another Conference title or National Championship.  There clearly isn’t another program in the ACC who can match Florida State in terms of talent or a Heisman trophy winning Quarterback but all of them will all be gunning for the upset.  Can Louisville entering their first year make some noise?  Will Miami finally bring back some of their past magic?

One thing is clear when you are the champ: you will get everyone’s best effort.  An upset could be the highlight of the season and even factor in recruiting.  What will it be like to play with a target on your back?  Will Florida State be able to handle the pressure?  I would imagine Fisher instilling a hunger to pursue a trip to the Playoffs to truly defend their title.
