Jameis Winston Florida State's Only Hope For A Repeat Championship

The one thing that we can say about Jameis Winston is he is a polarizing figure, and everyone has an opinion on him. I will admit I have written many articles on him and how he was not one of my favorite players for what he has done off the field of play. Through all the issues he has had the one thing no one can deny is his ability to stay one step ahead of it on the field.

Florida State would not be undefeated if it was not for Jameis Winston and some of his exploits on the field. Yes, at times he has hurt his football team, but most of the time he always finds a way to bring them back from defeat. That is the mark of a true champion. Bringing your team back when your not playing your best is critical to your success. Jameis Winston has done it time and time again.

Now in little over a week Jameis Winston will face his toughest test yet the Oregon Ducks. His team will need to travel cross country and play a quality opponent and their hostile crowd. Many people feel this will end the streak for Florida State, but I think we will see the opposite happen. It seems when Florida State has there backs against the wall they play better. Jameis Winston is the key to winning this game. If they want to beat the Ducks it will be Jameis Winston leading them once again.

Mike Riley Nebraska's Latest Savior

The Nebraska Cornhuskers were in search of a capable replacement for fired coach Bo Pelini. Apparently, the search was not as extensive as we first thought it would be. Nebraska settled on Mike Riley from Oregon State as there next head coach. Let's see a show of hands who like this hire. I will admit being a long time Husker fan I do have my reservations about Riley as the head coach.

Yes, Riley has won some Bowl games, but is not the kind of guy that has a Championship resume that the Cornhuskers were looking for. Many people think the Cornhuskers could have gotten a better coach and they are probably correct. I am sure Nebraska asked around, but really probably got no one that wanted to leave their programs for the Huskers.

Mike Riley is a good coach and given enough time he maybe able to get the program going where it needs to be. I do know he has some big wins and he is a like able kind of guy. Hopefully, that will transfer into more star players coming to Nebraska. I guess we will just have to wait and see how it all works out. Right now like him or hate him Mike Riley will lead the Cornhuskers into the 2015 season.
