Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, star defender Jalen Ramsey have ‘great talk’ after incident

All is well between Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher and Jalen Ramsey. A day after publicly and passionately throwing the star defender out of an open practice, Fisher said that he and Ramsey had a great talk and that Ramsey had a great practice.

“He had an emotional thing,” Fisher said. “He got upset, I got upset. That’s ball. We move on.

“The kid is a great kid and he’s a leader on our team.”
