Counting Down the Top 25 Florida State Seminoles of All Time

Florida-state1

It's still more than a month until college football returns but that doesn't mean I don't have something to distract you in the meantime. I've compiled a list of the Top 25 Seminoles of All Time. The list is limited to football and I've taken into consideration a range of factors from the players' era and stats to their impact on and off the field and even to some extent the pro career they enjoyed.

A few disclaimers, this is far from a definitive list. While it's been thoroughly researched and considered, there's always going to be disagreement and discussion when it comes to the very subjective concept of "the greatest." 

Without a doubt, Bobby Bowden would be number one if the list included everyone who had contributed to FSU's football program. But this is players only, Bowden, Mickey Andrews, Mark Richt, Jimbo Fisher and a slew of other coaches were not eligible.

Also, feel free to chime in with your own opinions and nominations in the comments.

We'll unveil players from 25 starting at the beginning of July all the way until we get to one at the start of FSU's practice schedule in August. But first, we'll start with a few honorable mentions...
