Florida State vs. N.C. State 2012: Quite frankly, an unacceptable loss

The Florida St. Seminoles entered Saturday's game against an unranked N.C. State Wolfpack team as one of the best teams in the nation and as double-digit favorites to win the game, but weren't able to leave the way they came in.

Instead, the Seminoles left Carter-Finley Stadium with their first loss on the season. Florida State blew a 16-0 lead at halftime and was outscored 17-0 in the second half to lose the game. This left Bud Elliott of SB Nation's Florida State football blog, Tomahawk Nation, disgusted with the loss.

Losses like this can get a coach fired. This is how to lose a fanbase. Not this one in particular, but not enough progress is being shown by this program under the direction of Jimbo Fisher and company.

Five losses to teams as double-digit favorites in 33 games as a head coach. Unacceptable.

The Seminoles will go back home looking to recover from this loss, as the team will prepare for a visit from Boston College on Oct. 13.
