TALLAHASSEE, Fla (WJHG/WECP) - It's a kind of an odd feeling for the Florida State college football faithful.
As they look ahead to this week's game with Wake Forest, what was originally scheduled to be their fifth game of the season, it's only their third.
And FSU remains without one in the win column!
That after Saturday's 27-21 home loss to North Carolina State, a program's that's given the 'noles fits in recent seasons.
The defense unable to take some pressure off an offsense that's was being led by a true freshman making his first start. And James Blackman did not play poorly, he was 27 of 38 for 272 yards a touchdown.
The Wolfpack though made more big plays in key situations, thus the outcome. Jimbo saying today it was a good game against a good team, nothing for the 'noles to hang their heads about.
"But there are some areas where we'll get our guys in, coach them up better, to be able to execute some situations a little better, in key things," Jimbo Fisher, FSU football coach said. "And that's on us as coaches, that's me as the head coach to make sure that that gets done. But again our kids care, they did a great job of competing in the game. We have to execute a little better in some situations. Again that goes on us as coaches to make sure that we can do that at that particular time. To give ourselves a chance to be succesful in key moments in the game."
Motivating this 0-2 team for the game at Wake Saturday will part of the trick this week. Wake's 4-0 by the way.
