Jimbo Fisher confronts taunting fan after Florida State's loss, apologizes in presser
The coach admits he was wrong to respond, but not too wrong
Florida State lost to Louisville 31-28 on Saturday, dropping the Seminoles to 2-4 on the season. Understandably, there's a lot of frustration in Tallahassee these days, as the Seminoles entered the year with national title hopes, and now merely getting to a bowl game is in question, something that FSU hasn't had to worry about since 1976.
Fans are frustrated, players are frustrated and Jimbo Fisher's frustrated. So much so that, when dealing with an angry fan after the game, Fisher essentially challenged the fan to a fight.
During his postgame presser, Fisher was asked about the confrontation and admitted he was in the wrong. Well, kind of.
"It's not frustration, just, 'Hey, listen, be supportive,'" Fisher said. "There's no reason to be nasty. I shouldn't have said something.
"But at the same time, [I'm] defending players and people you're with. I'm in charge of them, and I love them like a father. If they say something about your family, you take up for it."
So, yeah, things are going great in Tallahassee right now.
