JACKSONVILLE, FL - JANUARY 01: Offensive coordinator and future head coach Jimbo Fisher of the Florida State Seminoles walks the sidelines while taking on the West Virginia Mountaineers during the Konica Minolta Gator Bowl on January 1, 2010 at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Jimbo Fisher said that Saturdays game was about Florida State playing Florida. He said it was a top-10 showdown and not meant to serve as a statement in the polls, computer rankings or Bowl Championship Series. Florida State lost on all accounts Saturday. The Seminoles lost at home, where they were 6-0 this season. They turned the ball over five times, including three interceptions and a fumble from EJ Manuel. Elite teams win games like these, at home against their rivals, with everything at stake. Fisher said that this game didnt have added national significance, but Florida States players admitted that there was frustration over the teams No. 10 spot in the BCS. Florida State may be playing for the Atlantic Coast Conference title next week against Georgia Tech, but the Seminoles showed Saturday that they arent one of the best teams in college football.

  • Of course the FSU players stated there was frustration over their #10 ranking, their coach whined and whined about it in a press conference. I think the AP ranking of 17 before this game was more apppopriate, Dumbo voted his team 4th, really????
