Jimbo FIsher participated in his second-to-last call-in show of the 2015 season on Wednesday night, fielding many questions on the upcoming game with the Gators. Here are my takeaways from this week's show:

What are difficulties on playbook for young receivers?

One caller wanted to know what aspect of the playbook for the receivers makes it so difficult for them to get significant playing time early in their careers. Fisher quickly stated that the route running is the most challenging aspect, adding on that anyone can run but it takes practice to run precise routes consistently and make adjustments based on what the defense is showing you. He followed this up by stepping onto his soapbox for a second and saying that people are so good at multi-tasking numerous things at once that they occasionally struggle with focusing in on only one thing and doing that one thing very well.

How to manage Treon Harris

Multiple questions dealt with how Fisher would aim to limit what UF QB Treon Harris can do on Saturday. Fisher openly admitted that Harris was looked at by FSU when he was in high school and that he can move very well and throws a good deep ball. He noted that controlling a dual-threat quarterback goes back to maintaining defensive discipline, setting and keeping the edge, and staying in your assigned lanes to clog any escape he may have.

Lots of love for Coach Fisher

With so much speculation about the probable LSU opening and how bad the Tiger Boosters seem to want Fisher as their next coach, many people called without questions and simply wanted to share how much Fisher has meant to FSU, both as a school and football program. A few were more bold, stating that they hope he stays here until he is 85 with one person outright asking about the rumors. On that occasion, Fisher once again stated that he would not talk about the situation, per his policy, but did conclude by saying that he loves Florida State and that the school has done well by him so he is hopeful that he can continue to do well by FSU.
