TALLAHASSEE -- Two days later, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher attempted to flush Saturday’s upset loss to North Carolina State and move on.
“There’s a lot of ball left. There’s six games left, long season left and I’m very encouraged by our team, I’m excited by our team,” Fisher said Monday. “I look forward to seeing where we go the next six games.”
Fisher acknowledged the loss came down more to mistakes on Florida State’s part than just being beat, but countered reporters by asking how many undefeated seasons Florida State has had in school history (just one).
“So what are the odds you’re going to lose one?” Fisher asked.
On Sunday, the team held players-only meetings on offense and defense and also got together at the house of junior safety Terrence Brooks for a team cookout.
“We tried to have a little get-together,” Brooks said. “Just everybody come over and get your mind off the game.”
