Things have gone south quickly this season in Tallahassee.
Florida State suffered their fourth loss of the season today to Louisville 31-28. The Seminoles have gone through a brutal set of circumstances up to this point. Losing Sophomore QB Deondre Francois and a crushing last minute defeat to rival Miami are just a couple of the notable let downs in a tumultuous season. After the action today, fans let Head Coach Jimbo Fisher have it on the sideline.

The fan that @FSUFootball coach Jimbo Fisher got into it with had been told seconds before by police to put a derogatory sign away.

Afterwards, Fisher acknowledged he was wrong to respond to the heckling fans in the fashion in which he did.
“It’s not frustration, just, ‘Hey, listen, be supportive. There’s no reason to be nasty. I shouldn’t have said something. But at the same time, [I’m] defending players and people you’re with. I’m in charge of them, and I love them like a father. If they say something about your family, you take up for it. …
Are you going to be a real fan or not? Just keep fighting with us. We ain’t quitting on you. Please don’t quit on us. We’re going to keep fighting, scratching, coaching and playing, and you see the heart and desire of those kids.
“ understand you’re going to get on us [coaches]. That’s part of the business. That’s part of life. I understand that. … There ain’t no quit in us either. We’re right there. We just have to find a way to get it.”
Florida State’s 2-4 record is their worst start since 2009.
