Talking trash is never the best decision, especially when the opponent is the No. 1 ranked team in the country and led by Nick Saban.
But that didn’t stop Florida State president John Thrasher from poking the bear.
“I shouldn’t talk too much trash, but I think we’re gonna beat Alabama pretty bad next week, I really do,” He said per Tim Linafelt of Seminoles.com.
FSU Prez John Thrasher is ready: "I shouldn't talk too much trash, but I think we're gonna beat Alabama pretty bad next week. I really do."

Florida State does have a strong team, as they were ranked No. 3 in the first AP Poll. The Seminoles bring back a loaded defense, led by Josh Sweat and Derwin James. But Alabama, who was ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll, brings back a number of elite playmakers such as Bo Scarbrough and Calvin Ridley.
The two teams meet in Atlanta and will play in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m.
