Before the season

Pre-season outlook

The Seminoles ended the 1998 season with a defeat in the inaugural BCS Championship game to Tennessee and finished with a No 3 ranking in both the AP and Coaches polls and winning their seventh consecutive ACC title Bowden had two returning Consensus All-Americans and two other All-Americans among his 16 starters along with 19 fifth-year seniors "This time a year ago, I said we had a talented football team, but it's the least experience we've had in a long time", Bowden said "Now we've got most of the same guys back Most of those guys started That's the reason for so much preseason optimism" As expected, FSU was at the top of the first Coaches Poll of the season, released August 5, 1999 with 36 of a possible 59 first-place votes; other teams receiving first-place votes were No2 Tennessee with 13 votes, No 3 Arizona with 2 votes, and No 4 Penn State with 8 votes FSU was also atop the AP poll, released August 14, 1999 with 48 of a possible 70 first-place votes; other teams receiving first-place votes were No 2 Tennessee with 15 votes, No 3 Penn State with 4 votes, No 4 Arizona, No 5 Florida, and No 13 Virginia Tech with 1 vote each Seminoles came into pre-season camp with a healthy Chris Weinke who had to miss the 1999 Fiesta Bowl BCS National championship game due to a season-ending cervical herniated disc sustained during a sack against Virginia

Despite being touted as a top NFL draft pick, Consensus All-American Peter Warrick stated his desire to earn his undergraduate degree and to win a national championship after the Seminoles shared a sad result in the 1999 Fiesta Bowl BCS National Championship game Warrick would enter the 1999 season as a heisman front runner alongside Drew Brees, Ron Dayne, and Joe Hamilton On top of being a heisman favorite, Warrick was considered the front-runner for the Fred Biletnikoff award for the nations top wide receiver The Weinke led offense that scored 31 points a game in 1998 would find himself with a senior talented corp of wide receivers with Warrick, Laveranues Coles, and Ron Dugans

Due to FSU having 74 scholarship players on the roster and the maximum per NCAA is 85, FSU was only able to sign 13 players on National Signing Day Despite only signing 13 players, this stellar recruiting class was highlighted by four highly touted recruites that made USA Today's All-USA high school football team: Nick Maddox RB, Kendyll Pope LB, Darnell Dockett DL, and the top prospect in the country, Anquan Boldin QB who selected FSU over Florida and Miami During preseason football practice, Anquan Boldin would move from QB to WR at his request, a move that would eventually pay big career dividends The move surprised Bowden who stated ``I told him he'd be a great quarterback, His decision surprised all of us He is an excellent prospect wherever he lines up

Offseason news

On November 12, 1998, Chris Weinke underwent surgery at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital to repair damage to his C6 vertebrae The surgery repaired ligament damage, corrected a ruptured disc and removed a bone chip which was lodged against a nerve in his neck There was much uncertainty as to whether or not Weinke would be fully healthy for the 1999 season as there was a 6-month recovery period and much weight loss
