TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - An emotional moment took place at Tuesday night's Jimbo Fisher Call-In Show.

Bob Schmidt, a WW2 veteran who has been honored at FSU football games for his service to our country, got up out of his wheelchair during the Jimbo Fisher Show Tuesday night to stand up for Jimbo.

Not only did Bob express his support, but he also expressed his love for Fisher and shared a piece of advice.

You can catch a video of the exchange here:

No doubt we could all learn a thing or two from Bob. Jimbo, taking a note from Bob, also addressed how the team has been facing adversity.

There's been a lot of talk this week about Florida State fans and their displeasure in this season. The Seminoles are 2-4. Sure, it's not the season fans wanted but Jimbo's said it numerous times, this isn't what the coaches or the athletes wanted either.

Fisher said this week that he has total confidence in the coaches and this team just has to execute and learn from these losses.

"Like I say, I mean, it's just things that have to -- as I said, life experiences you go through. And not from lack of want to, it's not from lack of practice, it's not from lack of anything," Fisher explained. "We have to learn to handle those moments and do our best in those exact moments. Like I say, I always say you can be 3-for-3 in a baseball game, have no significant hits. You can be 0-for-3 and get the hit with two outs in the ninth that drives in two runs and be a hero. I think that's what we're going through."

Florida State is at Boston College Friday night. Kick-off is at 8 p.m.
