1. Florida State: The team that was a consensus pick to reach the playoffs in the preseason and a trendy national champion pick is sitting at 2-3 and hasn't been more than one touchdown better than anybody they've played to date. As devastating as starting quarterback Deondre Francois' injury seemed at the time, James Blackman has played well enough to win and there haven't been significant injuries or roster attrition to think otherwise. Florida State just hasn't lived up to the expectations. 2. The Year of the Quarterback: Heading into the 2017 season, the No. 1 NFL Draft pick seemed to be already penciled in as either Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen or Josh Allen, the Heisman Trophy winner was back in Lamar Jackson and we all felt like we were in for a show at the quarterback position.
