Fisher Working to Keep FSU On Task

Tallahassee, FL---If you work on the premise that Florida State has the potential to be a national championship contender, then it figures that one of the bigger problems for Jimbo Fisher this season is going to be keeping his team motivated through what is a rather unimpressive schedule.

Certainly the likes of Clemson, Miami and Florida loom down the road. But so do games against opponents like Idaho, Syracuse, Bethune Cookman and Nevada.

The latter comes to Tally Saturday for the Seminoles home opener. FSU a whopping 33 point favorite. On top of that Nevada's starting qb now questionable. So it might be easy for the Seminoles to look past the Wolfpack, but not if Jimbo can help it!

"They play very hard, they're very well coached, they're very sound. They have some dynamic players. If we look at it any different, we're gonna get bit in the tail. This is a very good football team, it's a very well coached football team. It doesn't matter who we play we have to play the way we play. It's about us. Not any disrespect to them, we have to focus on how we have to play and get better in every facet of the game. No matter who the opponent is, we have to respect them of that."

You get the feeling this is going to be a much more focused Florida State team that will be able to rally around a young leader at the quarterback spot. That game at Doak set for 3:30 eastern.
