Two weeks ago, Florida State head coach Mike Norvell said that not everyone was all-in. Second-year coaches like Norvell should have the locker room lawyers cleared out by now. Norvell was seen as a major upgrade as head coach compared to Willie Taggart. Instead, Norvell is doing far worse than Taggart. And Seminole fans have tuned out. At the same time, donors aren’t in the mood for another massive buyout. Thus, it’s up to Norvell to right the ship. Perhaps Saturday’s College football betting win over Syracuse is a sign of better times ahead.
