TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Losing is not something the Florida State football team is used too. The Seminoles hadn't lost a regular season match-up since 2012.
That streak over after Saturday night's heartbreaking loss to Georgia Tech, but head coach Jimbo Fisher insisted this team is ready to get back on the field and get to work on fixing their mistakes.
Some of those mistakes come from youth, the offensive line in particular struggled Saturday, with Fisher saying they lost their poise.
He added the best way to groom the line? Time, and to just keep working hard.
"They were wanting to do it so bad," he said. "Sometimes, for instance, if you like to hit a golf shot, sometimes you swing extra hard. That's the one you shank the farthest, and just having the confidence to know that I can do it and have been doing it. But just wanting good things to happen too bad and not relaxing and letting it happen in the procedure. Not just you get a rep and that happens, and hey, I won't do that again. Sometimes you have to go through those experiences, unfortunately."
Florida State returns to action on Saturday, when they host Syracuse. Kickoff is slated for noon at Doak Campbell Stadium.
