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.
