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.
