FSU Football returned to the practice field on Tuesday, and Jimbo Fisher spoke with the media afterwards.

FSU football coach Jimbo Fisher believes his team is getting better and better despite losing their third game of the season Saturday night against Clemson.

“We’re getting better and better, learning how to practice much more efficiently and it continues to grow…very pleased with what I saw today,” said Fisher.

Fisher believe the early part of FSU’s schedule affected their ability to learn how to practice. He did mention it in the early part of season, regarding the number of games FSU played early on and how that was a concern for him.

They did have a daunting first three games. FSU played Ole Miss on September 5, Charleston Southern on September 10 and Louisville on September 17.

That’s three games in 13 days where they were not able to focus on practice as much simply because the team needed time to recover physically after each game.

Not to mention two of those games were against high level opposition away from Doak Campbell Stadium.

Fisher said, “You should get better as the year goes on. We had so many big games early…you don’t see that because you’re worried about the results..but as you practice you get better and we have done that.”

Other Notes

  • Jesus “Bobo” Wilson will be out against NC State with no timetable to return
  • Derwin James is progressing but no timetable to return
  • Fisher believes Brian Burns has tremendous upside
  • The progression of Kermit Whitfield as a receiver is discussed
  • The youth in the FSU secondary is discussed

Fisher says the team is practice well and getting better. I sure hope that includes the offensive line because this type of stuff in the eighth game of the season is absurd.

Watch center Alec Eberle (#54) and how he doesn’t even see the Clemson player go right by him. It’s so bad he doesn’t realize Deondre Francois is sacked on the play.

It looked like he was a little kid trying to find his way through a dark hallway in a haunted house.
