Could FSU break the SEC streak?

Each week during the college football season, Mel Kiper and Todd McShay kick off the week by settling a debate, then will discuss emerging NFL prospects and look ahead to next week.

The discussion: Is Florida State at a level where they can break the SEC title streak?

Mel Kiper: Jimbo Fisher has two recruiting classes under his belt at Florida State. His first class was ranked No. 1 in the country; his second class was ranked No. 2. If things break right for Fisher and his coaching staff before February, they'll easily rake in another top-10 class. You can talk all you want about the gap between the top of the SEC and schools such as Florida State trying to break down that door, but the Seminoles can now compete with anybody in the country because they're simply going to start overwhelming teams with talent, something that defined the previous era of dominance.
