During his call-in show on Wednesday, Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher accepted the blame for his team's loss on the road to N.C. State last Saturday.

"As a head coach, you always take the blame for everything. That's your job. To have the kids ready to play... and we have to understand how to finish, how to keep that fire and edge the whole game."

This came in contrast to his Monday press conference, during which he said he had no regrets about any of the decisions he made during the game. At one point in the radio show, a fan asked if Fisher might give up playcalling duties, and Fisher acknowledged that could be a change made in the future. He also reassured fans that he is constantly re-evaluating his decisions.

Florida State fell to N.C. State, 17-16, after Wolfpack quarterback Mike Glennon connected with receiver Bryan Underwood for a go-ahead touchdown in the final minute of the fourth quarter. The loss to the Wolfpack dropped FSU to 5-1 overall and 2-1 in the ACC. The Seminoles will try to bounce back when they face the Boston College Eagles on Saturday.
