Going into 2009, the Florida State Seminoles and Head Coach Bobby Bowden are coming off their best season in four years.

They face significant personnel losses, mostly on the defensive side, yet have turned around after several disappointing years. Jimbo Fisher has brought a new attitude to the offense, which has improved the overall confidence of the team.

While the team has one of the toughest schedules in the nation heading, they will also have to overcome the negative aura of the ongoing appeal to the NCAA Committee of Infractions for the cheating scandal of 2006-2007.
