Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher hopes the Seminoles' first game, a 59-6 win against Samford, is exactly how today's second home against BYU goes as well.
FSU fans no doubt still dealing with the serious disappointment of their team blowing that game at N.C. State, but the 'noles coaches and players needed to put that behind them, and get back to the business at hand. This week that business is getting set for a home game Saturday against North Carolina.
As for that last second loss, Jimbo Fisher admitting this week it was rather tough to swallow, but he insists this is a situation of the glass half full, not half empty.
FSU Head Coach
"We're ahead in what we're trying to do and I think we're headed in the right direction. Whether, we're not we're we wanna be, by no means are we accepting where we're at, we're happy in the progressions that we made in what we're trying to do. And we're learning, first time we've won five in a row in a long time. We're playing with consistency, on offense we're doing some better things, I mean. Everybody says it's because of the numbers, the numbers are about the same, we're better in third downs we're better in the red zone, we're better in points and those types of things. And the defense has improved greatly."
FSU no longer in control of it's own destiny in terms of the ACC Atlantic division, they need the Wolfpack to lose at least one more conference game. That Carolina game set for 3:30 eastern.
