Fisher was glowing about the junior.

NCAA Football: Florida State at Duke Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Following his team’s 17-10 victory at Duke, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher spent a large portion of his presser talking about the junior running back.

Fisher talked about Patrick’s multiple third down conversions when he was first hit behind the line of scrimmage. Once the game was finished, Patrick had run for 98 yards on 18 carries.

Jacques Patrick is a hell of a football player. There’s so much character, talent, heart in that guy. He has size, speed. There was a run down our sideline where he ran through about four tackles. It was a nine-yard run and it should have been a one-yard run. He’s just playing so well on blitzes and everything. He played his tail off.”

Fisher was then alerted about the Boston College vs. Louisville score (which BC then won) and was asked about the ACC. The head coach went on to argue that from top to bottom, the ACC is the best conference in football, before talking about how the conference has now become a destination for coaches.
