FSU head coach Willie Taggart hits the stage in Charlotte

Taggart is looking forward to "changing that narrative" and winning multiple championships. When then-coach Jimbo Fisher addressed the media at the ACC Football Kickoff, all signs were pointing to the Seminoles reasserting themselves as the league's flagship program.

"Doing things right all the time is a big part of being a leader, and the hardest part of being a leader", he said.

"I think everything about previous year shocked me when it came to Florida State", Taggart said. "They're the headlines and everything because that puts all the pressure on them while we're back behind them or whatever from the media's view", Burns said.

Defensive end Brian Burns described Akers as a "monster" in the weight room and on the field and expects him to have a huge season. We have to allow them to go play the game of football like we all know they can play and like we recruited them to play for. He making everyone accountable.

Taggart and the Seminoles will have to come out of the gates ready for their season opener on Labor Day at home against Virginia Tech.

Then came Alabama, the loss of Deondre Francois to a season-ending injury and a three-week layoff because of Hurricane Irma. "They understand what it's going to take".

"He [Haggins] told me previous year not to focus on the things that are going on off the field because we still have an opponent in front of us", Burns said. And we as coaches can't confuse them by being so complicated with a game that is simple and a game that these kids have been playing all their life. "That's just giving us the flawless opportunity to creep up without having any notice".
