Fisher says Seminoles are built for the long haul
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Although Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher built his team to win it all this year, he doesn't think it's a now or never situation.
Florida State can still finish the season on high note despite being upset Saturday at North Carolina State. Still, some fans are skeptical after the fifth loss to a double-digit underdog in Fisher's 2 1/2-seasons as head coach.
Fisher said this summer he didn't view the 2012 season as one the Seminoles had to win the national title and that they were set for future success.
Fisher loses many top skill players and defenders after the season along with the most successful placekicker in school history.
The Seminoles (5-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) hope to restart their winning ways Saturday against Boston College (1-4, 0-2).
