Florida State began the 2017 season as the No. 3 team in the country. But losing three of the first five games of the season, the Seminoles have since fallen far from that perch with three losses in the first five game. On Saturday, they lost again to Louisville.
The crushing 31-28 defeat is sending ramifications across Tallahassee and college football, as Florida State now sits at 2-4. After the loss, USA Today writer Dan Wolken had his own very hot take:
FSU, the nation’s most overrated program at the moment, appears headed for its 10th loss in last 24 games against FBS teams

To be fair to Florida State, they have lost to Alabama, N.C. State, Miami and now Louisville. The Cardinals have struggled at times this season, but all four of those teams have been ranked at one point or another.
At the same time, though, none of those losses came on the road, and three of those four defeats were in Tallahassee. Florida State is now in serious danger of missing a bowl game for the first time since 1981.
