Reflecting on one of the worst starts for the Seminoles under Jimbo Fisher, SB Nation’s Bill Connelly boils down the Seminoles’ troubles to five key issues.

Defensive end Jacob Pugh had no filter when describing the 2017 season so far, comparing it to a nightmare and summarizing it as follows:

“It’s too late to demand leadership.”

Jimbo Fisher had his weekly press conference yesterday. Make sure to catch up on the updates.

This week’s Nolecast from Bud Elliott and David Visser features several strong statements after an embarrassing loss to Boston College.

In this week’s presser, Jimbo addresses the lack of production on this ’Noles team on all fronts and that the fans deserve better.

“Looking back at the film from the BC game, we just weren't any good in that game.”

With a 2-5 record, the question now becomes what the ’Noles need to change moving forward with this season and those to follow. Jimbo was quick to answer negatively about any drastic changes.

Looking ahead to this week’s game against Syracuse, the Noles have added another walk-on to the receiver depth chart.


Some positive news coming from the future Seminoles players, as they stick by the Seminoles’ side despite the tough season.

D’Marcus Adams, a wide receiver commitment for the class of 2021, got a chance to meet with Seminoles head coach legend Bobby Bowden.


Some positive news coming out of the NFL for our Seminole alum Telvin Smith, as he just inked a 4-year, $50 million extension with the Jaguars. Smith has been a notable player for Jacksonville, leading them in many of their defensive categories.
