The biggest player for FSU in the coming season will not be running back Dalvin Cook.
It will not be quarterback Sean McGuire. Or safety Derwin James.
The best player may be Campbell, Doak.
If FSU, under the guidance of Jimbo Fisher, is to return to the post-season playoffs, it may well because of a home-field advantage. Over the last three seasons, the Seminoles are the only team in the country that has gone unbeaten (21-0) while at home. Alabama, Clemson and Michigan State have all gone 20-1. Marshall is 19-1 and Ohio State is 19-2.
For the Seminoles, that’s a big number. This season, FSU plays North Carolina, Clemson and Florida all at home.
Oh, Miami might be a test. Maybe even USF. And Ole Miss is a neutral site game in Orlando.
But winning can be geographical, too. And judging from the last three seasons, the Noles play pretty well in games with a statue of Bobby Bowden outside.
