What Jimbo Fisher said after Florida State’s last-second loss to Louisville

Florida State and Louisville found themselves tied 28-28 late in the fourth with the Seminoles driving, but a fumble recovery by the Cardinals near their own 20 and a late 34-yard field goal with five seconds left saw them escape with a 31-28 win.

The loss is easily the Seminoles’ most heartbreaking of the season. For his part, James Blackman threw for 2 touchdowns, but also was picked off twice and had that big fumble late to lead to the Cardinals’ winning score.

But that wasn’t the only headline from the game. The frustration of a losing record has weighed on FSU coach Jimbo Fisher, who was involved in a testy postgame exchange with a fan while leaving the field. Here is what he had to say about it afterwards:

“No, I’m not frustrated…(But) that’s no reason to be nasty. But at the same time (I was) defending players and people (I was) with. I’m in charge of them and I love them like a father. If they say something to your family you take up for them.”
