TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The last time Florida State lost a game by 30-plus points, it had an entire offseason to get over it. The Seminoles don’t have that luxury this time.

Just about 48 hours after the 63-20 beating at Louisville, coach Jimbo Fisher Monday was trying to move past being shell shocked and address the glaring problems as his 13th-ranked Seminoles prepare for Saturday’s game at South Florida. Their previous worst thumping under Fisher came in the 2015 Rose Bowl by Oregon.

Florida State hasn’t dropped two straight games since Fisher’s second season in 2011. Fisher is focused on trying to make sure the loss doesn’t completely derail the Seminoles’ season, which began with many fans expecting the team to contend for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
