As the Noles finish their regular season with the Gators in The Swamp, there are a lot of questions to be answered as we head into 2008. As I indicated before the start of the 2007 season the "...ride may be more bumpy." It was bumpy and there were surprises and disappointments.
The Noles have one more win going into the final game than they had during the 2006 regular season. They had a convincing win against Bama and a huge upset victory at Boston College. However, losses against Wake Forest and Miami had Nole fans wondering about the character of the team.
As for the questions, there are many. Will FSU lose one or more assistant coaches to the huge number of head coaching vacancies being anticipated at the end of the season? Will the Noles have players who will transfer to other schools due to lack of playing time and not being given a fair shot? What will FSU decide in regard to Bobby Bowden's contract? Will the quarterback position be more of the same or will the Noles turn to someone new? How will FSU end up in the recruiting battle for 2008? These and many more questions will be addressed and debated on this blog and many other places as we look toward the 2008 season.
As for the now, nobody other than the most ardent of fans give the Noles much of a chance against a Florida team in The Swamp on Saturday. The character of this team will be tested on Saturday. How they will respond will say a lot about this team going into 2008.
