In his weekly ACC teleconference, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher gave another update on injured wide receiver Auden Tate who leads the team with two touchdowns.
The head coach said that Tate, who suffered a “slight sprained shoulder, an AC separation,” has been out of practice and feels much better. Tate remains day-to-day per Fisher.
On upcoming opponent Wake Forest, Jimbo Fisher noted its excellent defense that has helped the Demon Deacons start the season with a 4-0 record.
FSU has, “Had a very good week of practicing coming off a very tough game,” and will look to win its first game vs. Wake on Saturday.
With the team still without a victory, Fisher talked about how to avoid momentum continuing to go on a path of negativity.
“You just tell them the truth...We have to play one game at a time...We’re very close in all the areas, but we need to improve, we need to get over that hump.”
On the offensive line, Fisher argued against the status quo and said that they did not play poor, and it was the lack of offense on the team as a whole that gave off that illusion.
“Offensive line didn’t do a bad job. Offensive line got beat twice but other than that were good. “We need to execute better as a team on offense.”
When talking about the ACC, which now includes nine teams with one or fewer losses through four games, Fisher praised the talent and coaching league wide.
“Been saying it the whole time. This is one heck of a league. The other teams in the league are good and well coached. We’re as good as any other league out there. This league has depth.”
