Jimbo Fisher gets into it with fan holding derogatory sign after loss

Fans are frustrated, players are frustrated and Jimbo Fisher's frustrated. "There's no reason to be nasty". I love them like a father.

After entering the season as one of the national title favorites, Florida State dropped its opener to Alabama and lost starting quarterback Deondre Francois for the year with a knee injury. Louisville recovered, and Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson completed 3 of 4 passes and rushed for 15 yards on another play to set up the winning kick. The loss to Louisville was the third to happen in the final 10 seconds as Blanton Creque made a 34-yard field goal with five seconds remaining. The Seminoles are now 2-4 and must come to grips with the fact that a bowl berth is in serious jeopardy. Some fans are so upset, they are calling for Fisher to be fired (just search the #FireJimbo hashtag on Twitter). After a visit from FCS Delaware State, the Seminoles close out the season against Florida in The Swamp, and while the Gators have yet to score a touchdown against FSU in Jim McElwain's first two years as head coach in Gainesville, the chance to end their in-state rivals' season a month early would ramp up the stakes.

"Just keep fighting with us". "I shouldn't have said something". And understand something: What if that's your kid? "But we're not quitting on you, don't quit on us". If that was one of your kids or your nephew or your cousin or your friend, keep supporting them, you know what I mean?

"And us coaches, we're trying to do the same thing". That's part of the business. I understand that. When success happens, they put you too high, and once failures happen, they put you too low.
