TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has apologized for using the term "retarded" in response to a question about his team's ranking in the BCS standings that determine which teams play for the national championship.

Fisher said Monday the present system "stinks" and when asked about Florida State's being 10th behind three Southeastern Conference teams with two losses, he asked "how retarded is it?"

A few hours later, Fisher apologized. He said that it's not the way he thinks and he didn't mean to offend anyone.

Fisher said during his weekly news conference that he believes only coaches are capable of picking the country's best teams, noting that he voted his team fourth in this week's coaches' poll.

The Seminoles are 9-1 overall and also ranked No. 10 nationally.
