ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit shows love to Florida State, Mike Norvell, and Jordan Travis

The ESPN host is liking what he's seeing from Florida State.

Florida State’s two-game winning streak has shown marked improvement overall for the team. The way they handled North Carolina this past weekend caught the attention of some of college football’s most influential commentators.

After the season-opener versus Notre Dame Kirk Herbstreit couldn’t give enough praise to Florida State for both the effort by the team and the electric environment created by the fans. During the Seminoles’ slow start Herbstreit has commented both positively and negatively about FSU - it’s fair to say that he’s been on point about FSU so far this season.
