Saturday was the most frustrating loss of the season for Florida State.
With the Seminoles deep in Louisville territory with just over two minutes to go in the fourth quarter, James Blackman fumbled the ball to the Cardinals after a botched handoff. Moments later, Louisville was celebrating a 31-28 win after a 34-yard Blanton Creque field goal with five seconds left.
The frustration afterwards was evident – certainly among the fans at Doak Campbell Stadium hoping to see their team come away with the victory. That frustration boiled over as Fisher found himself in a testy exchange with a fan while Fisher was headed to the locker room.
Jimbo Fisher just got into it with a fan who yelled “get new coaches.” Fisher said “walk your a— down here and say it.”

On one hand, you can understand how both Fisher and the fan felt. The team was driving and looking for a go-ahead field goal at the absolute worst before Blackman’s gaffe led to Louisville’s game winning drive. Not only that, but the Seminoles had lost Deondre Francois to injury during Week 1, and that, along with several other injuries, had put them in a spot they weren’t familiar with.
However, Fisher has been around the game for a while. It certainly isn’t the first time he’s been heckled by an angry fan, and it certainly won’t be the last. Perhaps tuning that specific comment out and simply walking away was the better choice for him in that situation.
In any event, neither coaches, players or fans are happy with the way things have gone in Tallahassee this year.
