Corey Clark, columnist for the Tallahassee Democrat, asks the question all Florida State fans are thinking right now: What if FSU can’t get this turned around?
And if FSU loses to Wake Forest this weekend or Miami the following Saturday or at Duke the weekend after that - Jimbo Fisher is going to be feeling angst like he's never felt before. Moreso than even after the Wake Forest loss in 2011 or the loss at N.C. State in 2012.
Because, again, FSU fans don't want to go through this again. They're wary of another steep decline.
Want to know what Jimbo Fisher said at his weekly call-in show Wednesday night? Danny Aller has the scoop.
On Wednesday’s ACC conference call, Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson had many overwhelmingly positive things to say about FSU.
Dave Clawson: “I don’t look at FSU’s OL as having issues. They’re really good. They went against 2 DLs that any OL would’ve had ups/downs.”— #DaHale (@DavidHaleESPN) September 27, 2017
Clawson gushes about Cam Akers: "He's so fast. There are times on film when the defender has the angle on him and he just outruns them."— #DaHale (@DavidHaleESPN) September 27, 2017
Clemson’s Dabo Swinney also got in on the praise for the Seminoles Wednesday.
Dabo: “Trust me, Florida State is as good as anybody out there, and that will probably be proven by the end of the season."— #DaHale (@DavidHaleESPN) September 27, 2017
David Visser points out that the last time FSU started a season 0-2, it proceeded to go on a nearly unprecedented run over the remainder of its season. Can this year’s squad match that feat?
