TALLAHASSEE -- A day after criticizing his defense for giving up 200 rushing yards to Boston College, coach Jimbo Fisher finally saw the kind of effort he was looking for.
“Liked the physicality, thought we took on blockers well on defense. I liked the way they tackled in the run game, I really did. Made the offense pick it up, got pretty physical, pretty aggressive [Tuesday],” Fisher said. “It was physical, it got nasty; now they were getting in fights and pushing each other. Both sides were cranked up. They always get after it, but there was a little more juice in it [Tuesday], they knew they needed to get it better.”
No update on Hunter
Safety Tyler Hunter — who has been out with a neck injury — is still awaiting more evaluation.
“I wish I could tell you. I don’t know the answer to all that,” Fisher said. “We’re just trying to get second opinions to make sure that everything’s right. We’re re-evaluating what we’re seeing. It’s too important for the young man’s safety.”
