What Jimbo Fisher said after Florida State’s blowout win over Delaware State


Florida State wasn’t expected to have much trouble with FCS Delaware State in the Seminoles’ home finale. After a little of a shaky start, the Seminoles took full control in a 77-6 rout of the Hornets at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla.

The Seminoles raced to a 7-0 lead and used a touchdown on a blocked field goal to double that margin with 9 minutes, 8 seconds remaining in the first quarter. The Hornets did get on the board with a touchdown of their own (followed by a missed extra point), but it was all smooth sailing for the Seminoles from there as they opened up a commanding 56-6 halftime lead. The two teams would agree to shorten the second half to a pair of ten-minute quarters with the outcome already decided.

It was a short but productive day for quarterback James Blackman as he was lifted for backup J.J. Cosentino just before the halftime break. The true freshman went 11-for-15 for 179 yards and 3 touchdowns during a historic opening 30 minutes for Florida State, during which it tied the school record for points in a half with 56. It finished with the program’s second-largest point total and second-biggest margin of victory.

Here’s what coach Jimbo Fisher said after the dominant win on Saturday afternoon:

Jimbo Fisher: “We dominated the game, but we should have dominated the game. We went out and did it, and there’s something to that.”

Jimbo Fisher says a game like this earlier this season would have made a big difference for James Blackman.

"People who say P5 teams shouldn't play non-P5 teams are crazy" – Fisher takes a firm stance, saying that the money is essential. Also says the sport is under attack.

Fisher is ecstatic about Justin Motlow and others backups making an impact.

Fisher says that DJ Matthews has matured and will get the chances as he goes further along in his development.

Jimbo Fisher says Trey Marshall and Mavin Saunders should be ready to go next week.

Jimbo Fisher calls Nyqwan Murray’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty “ridiculous”, adds “Act like you’ve been there before.”
