Florida State redshirt sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston, in his first year as the starter, won the Heisman Trophy and led his team to a last-minute win over Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game. Winston clearly has had his off-the-field issues, but on it, he’s been nothing short of spectacular. But apparently Winston thinks he can improve. He told reporters Sunday morning that he plans to be “even better” than he was last year.

Winston threw for over 4,000 yards and 40 touchdowns in 2013, so he certainly has lofty expectations for his sophomore campaign. The Seminoles will have a more difficult path to a national title – they play Oklahoma State to open the season and Notre Dame in mid-October. They’ll also need to win three postseason games (including the ACC title game) because of the new College Football Playoff structure. But if Winston really does improve his play, there’s no reason they can’t once again run the table.
