Florida State Football Preview 2020

New head coach Mike Norvell will take the reins this season in his first year with the team. Norvell, the former head coach at Memphis, had four winning seasons with the Tigers before heading to Florida, and he’s bringing an entirely new scheme and system with him. So far, the early word has been all positive.

“I’m starting to see how this thing’s going to work,” running back Deonte Sheffield said about what his new head coach is bringing. “Of course, at the beginning it wasn’t all that. But now we’re starting to hit the runs and see what this offense can be. I really like it because he showcases all your talents in the pass game, the run game, everything, special teams.”

Sheffield is one of many players on offense who should see an increased role after rushing for 135 yards on 27 attempts last season. Florida State will also have a new signal-caller. Quarterback James Blackman was named the starter for Week 1 against Georgia Tech and beyond. Blackman had 2,339 yards passing, 17 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions last season and he should put up higher numbers under Norvell this year.

“In our experience together, he’s done everything I’ve asked him to do,” Norvell said when he named the team’s starter. “We’re working on that continued development in times of distress and I think that’s where James has grown a lot … he’s done everything that I was hopeful to see up until this point.”

On the defensive side of things, Florida State was 90th in the nation in total yards allowed last season, but they do have one of the nation’s top defensive linemen returning.

All-American defensive tackle Marvin Wilson is back for a final season, which bodes well for this defense. Wilson had in 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and 12.5 tackles for loss in 21 games over the last two seasons, and he is the cornerstone of this d-line.

New defensive coordinator Adam Fuller has come over with Norvell, and it will be interesting to see what he does with a group that allowed 27.8 points a game in 2019. He’ll have some talent to work with, as the Seminoles’ secondary will be anchored by two promising young defensive backs. Corner Asante Samuel Jr. was 14th in the nation with 15 passes defended last season, while safety Hamsah Nasirildeen led the team in tackles with 101.

Florida State finished 6-7 overall last year, and if the team’s new coaches mesh well with their players, it shouldn’t be hard for them to improve upon that mark.
