    Nothing to see here. It will be a shock if FSU isn’t at the very least in the Final Four, if not hoisting the crystal ball again. We got DEEPER this year.

    Actually, it will be a huge shock if FSU hoists the crystal ball. They retired that trophy, and replaced it with that golden vaginal thingy.
