TALLAHASSEE- Florida State coaches Mike Norvell, Kenny Dillingham, Adam Fuller, and John Papuchis spoke to the media today after an upsetting 31-23 loss this past Saturday to the Louisville Cardinals. The Seminoles look ahead to another ACC match-up this weekend at home against the Syracuse Orange this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET. They spoke on defense, injuries, the running back room, special teams, and more.
“In the locker room yesterday, everyone is disappointed, it hurts and it's painful to be where we are right now but we come in as a coaching staff, as players, we see the film and the results of our actions and what we do. They’re all things that need to be fixed and can be fixed.”
The FSU defense struggled in the first half giving up 316 total yards and 31 points to the Cardinals but did not allow Louisville in the end zone for the rest of the game.
“I thought defensively in the second half, they played lights out.”
“I thought guys were playing with great energy and it showed up all over the field. Going back and watching the film, in each game I've seen that level of play in our defense.”
Here is what Head coach Mike Norvell also had to say about the impact this season has had on recruiting:
