Jimbo Fisher is right to say ACC is premier conference

The Latest: Fisher says FSU 'better be ready' for Alabama

The Latest: Fisher says FSU 'better be ready' for Alabama

Of course, he heard about his close friend and former boss Nick Saban saying Florida State is built like a Southeastern Conference team just a day earlier at SEC media days in Hoover, Alabama.

While others may have a problem with what the FSU football leader may have said, Fisher was spot on correct. I think he is confident. I think it's what college football is about.

Even looking back at previous year, there were three teams in the ACC that finished with records below.500. I think it's great for our league, I think it's great for college football.

Fisher is entering his eighth season with the Seminoles, and a win over Alabama would arguably be the biggest regular-season win of his tenure in Tallahassee.

Macron took his place next to Zionism
Macron condemned an attack last week that killed two Israeli police officers at a Jerusalem shrine revered by Jews and Muslims. Macron said on Sunday that France was ready to apply diplomatic levers toward renewed negotiations, but gave no specifics.

Fisher said the practices were competitive because of the highly touted players on both sides of the football.

With the college football season just seven weeks away, coaches and players from the ACC member schools, including FSU football, were in Charlotte this past week for the conference's annual Football Kickoff - giving team reps a chance to meet with the media and talk up the conference heading into the 2017 season. The ACC might be deeper than the SEC, but Alabama is the best program in college football, and it's not really all that close.

Commissioner John Swofford held his state-of-the-league forum, celebrating a big 2016 for the league but also noting: "We also know you don't live too long on last year's laurels". They're all going to compete, and our running game and our offense are very crucial because it opens our pass game.

Still, that doesn't mean Florida State doesn't have places in which it can improve. Looking at his backfield mates, Francois had nothing but praise for the entire group stating " We have a lot of good running backs. "A lot of questions about that".

"Alright. So we'd go back and draw something up in the dirt". There is no reason to think that the conference will take a step back in 2017 - and the Seminoles could put an end to this discussion if they can win another title this season.

After Alabama, Florida State plays Louisiana-Monroe, Miami, N.C. State and Wake Forest.

Fisher pointed out that last year's schedule - the 'Noles opened with Ole Miss - gives his team some insight into what it faces this upcoming season. Louisville was a surprise team in 2016, but had been trending upward for years. "Louisville was ready for us, jumped on us".

The three-year captain for the Orange said respect is something that has to be learned and "we are no stranger to that fact".

Nationals put Joe Ross (triceps) on disabled list
Our models projected Ross for a 4.95 ERA and 1.39 WHIP, with 23 strikeouts over 30.9 innings remaining this season. Nationals right-hander Joe Ross will undergo Tommy John surgery this week, manager Dusty Baker announced Saturday.

North Carolina State's Jaylen Samuels has been so unique and so impressive the ACC has made a decision to name a new position after him - well, sort of. "We're going to have to be extremely prepared physically, mentally, psychologically and every way for it".
