Five guys. If they were fingers, you could make a fist.
Five. A quintet. A basketball team. A rock and roll band.
Five. That’s how many voters think FSU is the best team in the country.
Oh, it isn’t enough.
Alabama got 33 No. 1 votes, and Clemson got 16. Oklahoma got four, even though it did have enough to take the No. 3 spot in the poll ahead of Jimbo Fisher‘s Seminoles.
Still, five people believe.
It’s a start.
Five voters think the Seminoles are No. 1 despite an injury at quarterback, despite the ACC’s toughest schedule, despite No. 2 Clemson being in the same league.
Perhaps those voters might have lowered FSU’s ranking — or suggested more voters join them — when Fisher decided to restart practice.
“We’re getting mentally tougher, but we’re not as strong as we need to be, and we’ve got to grind it out,” Fisher said. “You’re in those dog days of camp; you’ve got to work to create habits. No matter how you feel, how sore you are, whatever it is. We’re getting there; we aren’t quite there yet.”
