Florida State football, recruiting news: Opening night blowout leaves team, fans searching for answers

Hear Taggart talk after the loss.

NCAA Football: Virginia Tech at Florida State Tallahasse Democrat-USA TODAY NETWORK

The Seminoles fell 24-3 to Virginia Tech on opening night. David Visser breaks down what went wrong.

The offense failed to score a touchdown at home for the first time since 2008. Check out our observations from an anemic offensive night.

Yeah, it was that bad.

Taggart said that the slew of mistakes Monday night are certainly correctable. Hear Taggart’s full post-game press conference here.

Bud Elliott explains how the red-zones struggles against the Hokies are uncharacteristic of a Willie Taggart offense.

The coaching staff and players are eager to get back to work in a full effort to avenge for an ugly, season-opening loss. For many, the glass is “half-full.”

Paul Myerberg agrees.


The Seminoles received some good news before the game began, as elite safety Nick Cross announced his commitment to the Garnet & Gold.

The number one recruit in the nation for 2019, Kayvon Thibodeaux, was also in the building for Monday night’s game.
