Florida State Jimbo Fisher press conference Recap: GT Week

Live updates from Jimbo Fisher's weekly press conference.

There was a lot to talk about when FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher spoke to the media on Monday. Here are the biggest things we learned.

1) There is still a lot of uncertainty for who will replace Marshall.

Fisher did not give a definitive answer on who will take the role, but instead listed a multiple of candidates which included freshmen defensive backs Marcus Lewis and Tarvarus McFadden. Fisher once again praised the work of former walk-on Javien Elliot and did not count him out as a potential replacement.

2) Everett Golson still has improvements to make.

On the quarterback, Jimbo said "Still a lot of things we need to clean up, but not in a critical way. He was getting the ball in and to the right people, I was pleased." Golson had the most yards he has had all season with 372 and has yet to throw an interception with 11 touchdown passes.

3) Dalvin Cook is fast.

While on the subject of how GPS tracking allows the training staff to monitor Dalvin Cook, it was revealed that he went over 23 miles per hour over the summer, and sits at around 20-22 miles per hour. Fisher said he fully trusts Dalvin in what he says about his hamstring and says it is a lot stronger than it was than when the injury occurred.



Following a 41-21 home victory over the University of Louisville on Saturday afternoon, Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher will address the media at 1 PM EST.

We learned Sunday night that safety Trey Marshall will miss the remainder of the season after a biceps injury that will require surgery. Tyler Hunter and Javien Elliot took over throughout the game, however there may be more candidates in play.

Quarterback Everett Golson had his best performance thus far throwing for over 400 yards and three touchdowns. On the ground, Dalvin Cook went to business rushing for 163 yards with two touchdowns, adding 60 more yards through the air. There were a couple of rushes where it was visible that his hamstring was still bothering him.

The rushing defense was once again unstoppable, holding Lamar Jackson to 32 rushing yards on 19 attempts. However, there were problems once again with a secondary without Trey Marshall. Louisville had many big plays that allowed them to stay close throughout that need to be addressed.

Florida State takes on Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Saturday at 7 PM.
