The 2017 Florida State Football Media Guide includes profiles of players and coaches, a list of records and honors held by players, a review of the 2016 season, a preview of the 2017 season, and much more. 260 pages. Spurred by a STIRRING FINISH TO LAST SEASON and driven by a roster loaded with both ELITE TALENT and BIG-GAME EXPERIENCE, the Florida State Seminoles enter the 2017 SEASON locked in on their GOAL OF RETURNING TO THE TOP of both the ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE and THE NATION. Florida State RETURNS 20 STARTERS from a team that won seven of its last eight games, a run punctuated by a DRAMATIC ORANGE BOWL VICTORY OVER MICHIGAN that was one of the most exciting games of college football’s postseason. And despite the departures of key players on both offense and defense, the Seminoles have a WEALTH OF OPTIONS to fill those open roles thanks to the FSU coaching staff’s DOMINANCE ON THE RECRUITING TRAIL over the last several years. That TREND CONTINUED IN 2017, when coach Jimbo Fisher signed a wave of newcomers that RANKED AMONG THE BEST in the nation.
