Live updates from Jimbo Fisher's weekly press conference.

Coach Jimbo Fisher reiterated how proud he was of his team and how they played on Sautrday against Miami. "Loved the way our kids grew up in that game, love the way they competed in that game."

Fisher also stated how he is happy with the progression of the blocking by receivers, saying Bobo has learned well and Ermon Lane was the best position player blocker on the team. Staying on offense, Everett Golson impressed with Jimbo saying, "You gotta trust your eyes and I think (Golson) did that." He continues to improve every week, and it seems like the quarterback controversy from two weeks ago was put to rest.

With the ejection of Trey Marshall, it put the Noles in a situation they had to adapt to. It wasn't due to the loss, but how they had to move guys around in the backfield. Jimbo was not upset with Marshall, saying, "Trey Marshall has really matured. His heart and soul goes into playing football. He felt like he let his team down. We gotta coach him better, and he’s gotta make a better decision."


Fresh off of a 29-24 victory over the Miami Hurricanes, Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher will hold his weekly press conference beginning at 1 PM EST.

The defense was hit or miss throughout the game, holding the Canes to just 20 rushing yards, but allowed over 400 passing yards which kept Miami in the game. The Florida State secondary missed a couple of easy interceptions, missed many tackles, and coverage was weak all night. It did not help when Trey Marshall was ejected early in the first quarter due to targeting.

On offense, it was the same situations as most weeks. Florida State got going in the first half gaining 358 yards and then came out sloppy in the second half, only managing to gain 181 yards. Dalvin Cook's injured hamstring spoke for itself as the sophomore from Miami rushed for 222 yards on 22 carries and had three total touchdowns. Everett Golson finished the game 25-33 with 291 passing yards and no interceptions for the fifth consecutive game.
