TALLAHASSEE -- Jimbo Fisher said Monday he was happy his team had kept its cool early in the third quarter after tempers had started to flare on the Seminoles’ opening drive against Miami.
Hurricanes defensive lineman Anthony Chickillo and Seminoles offensive tackle Bobby Hart became entangled and things got chippy, but Fisher’s team kept its composure from that point forward.
“You do respect that because football is a macho game, trust me, I respect it,” Fisher said when asked if he was upset about the altercation.
“But we’ve got bigger-picture things we’re trying to do.
“I understand why they did it, I’m not mad at them at all, I just don’t want to lose them.”
Fisher said the team left the Miami game relatively unscathed.
Senior safety Terrence Brooks — who had six tackles and a sack — left the game with a concussion, and Fisher said he is day-to-day.
