Second half success

Fisher made a point of noting that all of FSU's second-half possessions against USF resulted in points via field goal or touchdown. Although he may not have known it, the same is true of the season opening game against Texas State. Through 2 games, FSU has scored on all 11 second-half possessions in its first two games, with the exception of the final possession against Texas State where FSU took knees to run out the clock. Although there have been some first half issues, I know Fisher is pleased with an impeccable second-half record.

Fisher's biggest concern with Boston College

When Gene Deckerhoff asked Fisher what his biggest concern about the BC game was, he was quick to say that Florida State needs to control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball but especially on offense to allow the Seminole skill position players to get into space.

Will teams key in on the run?

One caller poised the question about how the offense will be run if an opposing team keys in on the run, stuffing the box and shutting down Dalvin Cook. Fisher retorted that keying in on the run and stopping the run are two entirely different things. He also stated that Everett Golson is more than capable of making throws if a defense is committing that heavily to the run. It's worth noting that Fisher has notoriously run a pass-heavy offense as he pointed out by saying, "I have never been afraid of throwing the ball."
