Jimbo Fisher worries about first-game jitters


Miami Herald Writer

Despite having broken camp several days ago, Florida State waited until Wednesday to get into its regular game-week routine. The Seminoles travel to Heinz Field to play the Pitt Panthers on Monday.

“All of us are camp-weary, but were excited,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “I think it brings the excitement level back up when a game comes and you’re at the end of camp and you’re banged and bruised and battered.”

Fisher said the one concern he does have heading into Monday’s road trip is the possible nervousness young players might experience when playing for the first time on a national stage.

“[I’m concerned about] the first-game jitters. The bugs that you have to work out,” Fisher said.

“On the road because you’re in a loud stadium, making sure we communicate with the right calls and signals and things like that. ”
