In the latest ESPNU College Football podcast, Ivan Maisel and Todd McShay discuss the matchup between Florida State and Notre Dame in the Champs Sports Bowl. They preview several games leading up to New Year's weekend, so feel free to listen to all of them, but the Florida State-related talk starts around the 30-minute mark.
McShay says that FSU and the Irish are two of the toughest teams in the country to figure out this year. He also said that FSU could be more efficient on offense, and while quarterback EJ Manuel has to improve his accuracy and consistency, he also needs more help from his receivers. McShay said that FSU's receivers lack speed and big-play ability of FSU teams of the past, and that should be a priority on the recruiting trail -- finding dynamic playmakers at receiver to help open the offense up.
