No time to panic for Seminoles, even as team gives up season high in total yards


Miami Herald Writer

Florida State surrendered a season-high 397 total yards in its 48-34 win at Boston College on Saturday — including 200 on the ground. Coming into the game the Seminoles had ranked second nationally in total defense.

On Monday, coach Jimbo Fisher wasn’t panicking, though.

“As you watched the film I wasn’t as distraught as I thought I was going to be because it was more two or three individual things that caused the problem, two or three individual segments,” Fisher said. “It was more a couple guys just didn’t have great games that were causing some movement inside.”

• Junior safety Tyler Hunter, who injured his neck two weeks ago and missed Saturday’s game, was absent from the Seminoles’ updated depth chart.
