Tallahassee, FL---No doubt about it there has to be relatively serious pall hanging over the Florida State football facility early this week..
Jimbo Fisher and his guys are still dealing with the bizarre roller coaster ride that was Saturday's 37-26 loss to the hated Gators, in front of the FSU faithful at Doak no less.
FSU taking a serious first half punch from Florida, finding themselves down 10 at the half.
The Seminoles rallied big time in the third quarter, eventually scoring 20 unanswered to lead by 7 at 20-13.
Only to see Florida come back and score 24 4th quarter points and walk away with the win.
Monday, with the ACC title game against Georgia Tech ahead on the schedule Saturday, Jimbo talked about trying to get his players to somehow move on and be ready to represent in Charlotte.
"I think it hurt 'em yesterday but I think they're ready to flush it because they understand what we have to accomplish." coach Fisher says. "And win a conference championship and still have a phenomenal year, and play very well. I look forward to them doing it, I expect them to do it. I mean that has been the way the talk has been with the guys. They're disappointed, they know we didn't play as well as we could have played and done the things we could have done. But you know we still have a great opportunity to do some things."
Jimbo says he's still not sure how they're going to shuffle the defensive line to make up for the loss of defensive end Tank Carradine who suffered a torn ACL Saturday night. That's of particular concern give they'll face a Georgia Tech team that runs the triple option and is averaging over 300 yards a game on the ground.
