Jimbo Fisher’s full plate

Dan Wolken writes about one of the story lines at the ACC Media Days coming up:

Florida State: This looked like a year for the Seminoles to take a step back from the national scene before regrouping in 2016. But when quarterback Everett Golson transferred from Notre Dame and took his talents to Tallahassee, it put Florida State back into the conversation — at least in theory. Golson’s name is probably bigger than his impact — remember, he left Notre Dame because he hadn’t beaten out Malik Zaire for the starting job following spring practice — but it still makes the Seminoles a compelling watch.

Plus, it’s Florida State, where there rarely seems to be a shortage of off-field drama these days. De’Andre Johnson, a high-profile freshman quarterback, was dismissed from the team last week after video was released of him striking a woman at a bar. Last month, coach Jimbo Fisher released a statement acknowledging that he and his wife Candi had recently separated and were in the process of a divorce. That’s a difficult moment for anyone, much less someone whose life is so public.

Add the late news about Dalvin Cook’s arrest and I wouldn’t be surprised if Fisher is seen walking around Pinehurst wearing a “Ask Me About Everett Golson” t-shirt.

It’s gonna be a Clay Travis field day.

    “…after video was released of him striking a woman at a bar.”

    Gotta love the vanilla wording. How about:

    “…after video surfaced of him violently punching a woman squarely in the face.”

    “.. and running away after he did it..”

    Awww, did poor wittle Jimbo’s wife catch him riding a motorcycle? I guess when lying is part of your job its hard to turn it off at home.

    A moment of silence, please, for the poor state of marriage in Tallahassee.

      I think someone else was riding Jimbo’s motorcycle.


      • Puffdawg

        I think Jameis Winston was riding on Jimbos motorcycle with 7 dead hookers and a neon “look at me” bar sign whilst shot gunning beers and clutching the Sears Trophy. Jimbos response was, “ain’t that a pretty trophy?”


    • The Dawg abides

      It wasn’t Jimbo doing the riding. Rumor is the wife really enjoyed working out with her personal trainer, an ex-gator WR.

        Chu know, Kharma is a funny kinda thing. While the Auburn Slime Patrol was interviewing Jimbo, Tommy was going through a similar situation back on the Plains.

        And the Bitches go: Ohhh de doo da ohhh de doo da. 🙂

    I thought it was Pruitt having the affair…


  7. PansyTheDawg

    Who names their daughter Candi? Does she have a sister named Mercedes?


    • Cousin Eddie

      Candice was her real name she changed it to Candi when she started stripping. 😉

      The FSU players are just taking Jimbo’s frustration with his wife out on the local females.


  8. He got a pass for entirely too long…its about time.
