Oklahoma State, Clemson, N.C State, Notre Dame, Louisville, Miami, Boston College, Florida, Georgia Tech

Where do you start? Oklahoma State was 19 point underdogs in the season opener and got to within 27-24 early in the 4th and clutched the momentum, only to have the Seminoles close the game 37-31.

With the score tied and a minute and some change left, Clemson was just setting up for a game winning field goal near the 20 yard line when they fumbled, Florida State recovers, sends it to OT, they win.

NC State was up 24-7 at the end of the 1st quarter, lose 56-41. Then Notre Dame happened. Down 31-27 with nary a minute left and on fourth down, Notre Dame QB Everett Golson finds his receiver wide open in the flat right by the end zone, Irish score, defeating the Seminoles…Nope, penalty negates it, Florida State wins again.

The same can be said for the following games: Down 21-0 at Louisville. Down 23-10 at Miami. Late field goal versus Boston College to win 20-17. Winning at home against a recently let go Will Muschamp by only 5 with Jameis Winston throwing 4 interceptions, 24-19. ACC Championship Game, Georgia Tech was up by 7 most of the night, eventually losing 37-35. All those teams above: disappointing.

But it showed us one thing: What a closer is made of. Florida State might be that suave car salesman in polyester trying to add on things you don’t need, but in the end, they’ve closed them all, as disappointing as it is for the rest of America. 13-0. Final Four Appearance.
