Saturday cant get here soon enough for Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher.
The Seminoles will hold their annual spring game this weekend and the third-year head coach is looking for significant improvement by his team from this past Mondays scrimmage.
I thought we played very poorly on both sides, he said. I thought the first scrimmage was better than this one.
In particular, Fisher was upset about sloppiness on offense and what he termed not smart turnovers. The defense gave up big plays and didnt communicate properly. Fisher and FSU havent provided details yet, but the numbers probably wouldnt have justified the coachs displeasure. Intra-squad scrimmages rarely do.
Fisher was asked Tuesday how concerned he is that the second scrimmage didnt positively connect with the first, that there was no progress.
It does, he replied. It should get better, not worse. We need to take a look at why. Well make some adjustment, sit some guys down and play some other guys. There were...
BEST OF MAXIM
Andrew Datko OT Florida State #67
Prototypical size. Four-year starter. Solid all-around fundamentals. Gets into position quickly out of his stance.

TALLAHASSEE Jimbo Fisher wont show Florida State fans much of the playbook.

And of course a look at quarterback EJ Manuel, the rising senior who is back at 100 percent after playing through a...
Florida simply has Florida State's number this year, completing the sweep of the Seminoles on Tuesday right after they scaled to No. 1 in the polls. Here's a gallery of photos from Dick Howser Stadium.
In this installment of NoleDigest Video, junior wide receiver Willie Haulstead talks to the Florida State media for the first time since sitting out all of 2011 with post-concussion problems.
As I hinted at a few days ago on twitter, Antwan Space will transfer from FSU. Space was ranked as one of the top 10 incoming freshman by at least one publication last season but never saw significant playing time in his freshman season.
Here's more on Space's transfer and where he will be playing...
Florida State on Thursday officially lost a player believed to be a...
Florida State found out Boston College is a much better team at home than its record would indicate, but the Seminoles still rallied for two tallies in the top of the ninth to steal a win at Chestnut Hill.

Florida head coach Kevin O’Sullivan knew that his team needed a win. They already had the series win secured over No. 1 Florida State, but securing the sweep for a struggling Florida team would create momentum heading into the conference weekend. No. 4 Florida secured the first regular season sweep of the Seminoles since 1958 with a 6-3 win in Tallahassee on Tuesday.
On Saturday afternoon, Florida State will play its annual Garnet and Gold Game. Plenty of prospects will be in Tallahassee, as it is traditionally a pivotal time for recruiting. How does the weekend look so far according to our resident expert?
