See , this week isn't going to be so bad. The Wolfpack opened Sunday at +27.5 against top-ranked Florida State. That's, what, four touchdowns? It's a margin so thin, it's practically a pick 'em, if you ask me. Just flip a coin because the game's going to be that close, as it is every year.
FSU's odds improved somewhat with the news that Jameis Winston won't be serving any additional suspension time, barring more mid-week shenanigans, of course. I'm not saying he is going to angrily kick the certified cutest puppy in the world and send it flying to its death, but he's going to kick the certified cutest puppy in the world and send it flying to its death. That is going to happen on Thursday. I'm nearly certain.
So the Seminoles may have their Heisman-winning quarterback back under center just in time for the formidable challenge that is the Wolfpack defense, and you have to figure that with Winston, the Noles would also have a much better shot at keeping up with the Pack's elite offense. But we shall see. The aura of Carter-Finley Stadium has destroyed greater men than these.
