The Seminoles won their first game of the season last Saturday at Wake, and FSU will now return home to face off against Miami.

“Very proud of the way our team competed (vs. Wake)...Now we move on and play a great UM team...They got a great team so we need to have a good week of preparation.”

Miami has many impact players that Jimbo Fisher spoke about during his ACC Teleconference segment.

On running back Mark Walton, Fisher said, “This guy is a heck of a player...He is a complete player, our defense is going to be challenged.”

On quarterback Malik Rosier, “I think he’s done a great job. Great composure, athletic. I thought he’s done a tremendous job and playing well.”

And his thoughts on receiver Braxton Berrios, “Berrios is a heck of a football player. Very instinctive, great punt return skills, just overall a very very good football player.”

Fisher was then asked if Dalvin Cook had the biggest impact from a non QB on the series. After thinking about it for a little, the head coach agreed.

“Dalvin had significant roles in this game...he was clearly one of the greatest players in FSU history, that’s for sure.”

FSU saw game action from players that are working their way into the rotation. Fisher was pleased from what he saw from defensive end Jalen Wilkerson and defensive tackle Arthur Williams on Saturday.

“(Wilkerson)’s a very athletic guy...He’s done a great job developing and getting better. His size and strength allow us to do some things.”

“(Williams) played solid. Made some great defensive players.”

On the lack of production to other wide receivers other than Aude Tate, “I think the calls just happened to be there for Auden.” Fisher also mentioned Campbell’s production vs. NC State, “Auden had our best camp of anyone.”

There is still work to do on the Florida State offense

“We have to eliminate the negative plays... Gotta clean up the penalties.... Again, keep working on scoring touchdowns in the red zone.”

Fisher ended his teleconference talking about the targeting rule and how there are many different ways to interpret intent and that he doesn’t disagree with a possible rule change.
