The Jimbo Fisher Call-In Show brought some drama this week as a pair of callers saw their inquiries to Fisher cut off before they concluded their points.

The screeners for tonight's Jimbo Fisher Call-In Show likely were duped on this one because the moment that question came out of this caller’s mouth, he was gone. Host Gene Deckerhoff groaned and kind of rolled his eyes, and Fisher laughed it off and said, “They’re not calling me (directly)! I’ll tell you that.” Deckerhoff then quickly went to the next caller and transitioned like it never happened. And that call was actually the first of two to get cut off Wednesday — the second one coming when a caller said Florida State’s players were “disgraceful” for celebrating after the targeting call against defensive back Emmett Rice against Clemson. Fisher politely disagreed, saying, “I wouldn’t go that far,” and the call was disconnected.

Our own Bud Elliott weighed in on Twitter with his take on Fisher and where he thinks he will be coaching next season.

Brendan Sonnone of Noles247 breaks down Jimbo Fisher’s response on Wednesday’s ACC Teleconference to when he will begin looking ahead to next season.

“Next year. Right after this season is over. We still have a lot to play for. Team needs to play well and you do that when the season is over.”

Bud and Ingram break down what went wrong down the stretch in the Seminoles’ 31-14 loss at Clemson over the weekend in the latest edition of the Nolecast.


2018 wide receiver Joshua Moore, currently committed to Nebraska, announced that he will be taking an official visit to FSU in early December. A current FSU commit had something to say about that.

In case you missed it, Bud broke down FSU’s very underwhelming recruiting momentum as early signing day nears.
