Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher called the ACC the best conference in the country.

"I think we've established ourselves as the premier conference in college football," Fisher said at the ACC media scrum late in the week. The conference's two biggest feathers in its cap come in Clemson's national title and Louisville QB Lamar Jackson's Heisman Trophy. Fisher will have a chance to back up his words by degrees against Alabama in the season-opener about a month-and-a-half from now.

Florida State and West Virginia will play in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic in 2020.

The Seminoles and Mountaineers are scheduled to square off in Atlanta on September 5, 2020. That game will be played in the currently-under-construction Mercedes-Benz Stadium. "Florida State is one of the top teams in the nation each year," said WVU HC Dana Holgorsen in a statement, "and it will be a challenge for us and a great way to open the season." In a small sample size, Florida State is 3-0 all-time versus West Virginia. The two teams last played in 2010.

Florida State signed HC Jimbo Fisher to a contract extension through the 2024 season.

In a statement, Fisher said, "I am proud to be the football coach at Florida State University, and I am happy we were able to reach a long-term contract to have our staff in place for a long time." He had been linked to LSU in coaching rumors over the past two seasons, but those rumors never translated to an actual move. During his seven seasons as Florida State's head coach, Fisher owns an impressive 77-17 record.

LSU beat writer Ross Dellenger reports LSU has its "sights on" FSU's Jimbo Fisher to be the school's next head coach.

Dellenger includes a few details, like a small group of decision makers have narrowed a list to around four targets, and it ends with naming Ed Orgeron as head coach. We won;t spend too much time on this, as coaching speculation lasts for weeks and usually includes very little truth, but LSU is expected to act quickly.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher reaffirmed his love for the Seminoles in the face of rumors that he might leave for LSU.

On Tuesday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune's James Smith relayed that LSU AD Joe Alleva has been in touch with Fisher's representation since the Tigers' firing of Les Miles in September. Fisher predictably tried to squash the continued job speculation, saying, "I’m not going to talk about any jobs. I love being at Florida State. I love being here, and I’m just getting ready for Syracuse." It should be noted that Fisher did not outright dismiss Smith's report, nor did he deny interest in the job.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune's James Smith reports that Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher and LSU interim HC Ed Orgeron are both legitimate contenders to take over the Tigers' vacant head coaching position.

Per Smith, LSU AD Joe Alleva has kept in communication with Fisher's representatives since Les Miles' firing in September. Smith further relays that while Fisher's contract contains a $5 million buyout, the Tigers are not deterred by having to pony up those bucks. In addition to Fisher and Orgeron, Mike Gundy, Tom Herman and Larry Fedora are being considered for the open gig.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher believes that harsher penalties should be enforced for illegal hits on the quarterback.

"Late hits need to be really, really scrutinized and maybe even more severe punishments to stop people, like we throw guys out of games for head shots," Fisher said. In Saturday's loss to Clemson, Fisher took umbrage with a non-replay on a play in which Deondre Francois was leveled with a helmet-to-the-midsection hit in the fourth quarter. He later called the replay official's decision not to buzz down for a closer look "bad." In general, Fisher has been in rare form since the Seminoles fell to Clemson. The ACC fined him $20,000 for postgame comments in which he referred to the officiating as "garbage."

The ACC fined Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher $20,000 and Pitt HC Pat Narduzzi $5,000 for their postgame comments regarding the officiating in their respective games.

With Fisher, in particular, you could have seen this coming a mile away. Following Saturday's narrow loss to Clemson, he deemed the officiating to be "garbage" in places and referred to their unsportsmanlike penalty levied against the FSU bench following a disputed chop-block call to be "cowardly, gutless and wrong." For his part, Narduzzi said that Virginia Tech's corners "did a great job pushing off all night" on Thursday. Now boasting slightly lighter wallets, Fisher and Narduzzi will lead their respective squads to battle against NC State and Miami this coming weekend.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher went on a rant over the officiating in Saturday's loss to Clemson.

The play that drew Fisher's ire came early in the fourth quarter, with the Seminoles clinging to a 28-26 advantage. Dalvin Cook appeared to bust free for a 41-yard touchdown run on the call in question, but that score was called back due to a block below the waist by FB Freddie Stevenson. And Fisher was having none of it, to the point that FSU's sideline was actually penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct while arguing the call. Fisher got the last word in, after the game. "I will tell you what: You hold coaches accountable, you hold players accountable, hold the damn officials accountable," Fisher said. "It is garbage, and then to call another penalty on the sideline is even more garbage. It's cowardly, gutless and wrong." He then welcomed a fine. That wish figures to be granted.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher vehemently defended his team in the wake of criticism from former Seminoles DB Greg Reid.

Following Saturday's 37-35 defeat at the hands of North Carolina, Reid tweeted, "Just because we lost doesn't mean we need to change anything! Point blank period we don't have HEART." Fisher scoffed at that notion, saying, "You can never judge what's in a guy's heart until you know him and you play with him." Heart or no, FSU's defense has been abysmal to date. They are surrendering 42.3 points on average -- good for 115th in the FBS. To put their defensive woes in perspective, ESPN's Jared Shanker shared a remarkable statistic. This season, Florida State has surrendered 177 total points through five games. During their championship year in 2013, they allowed 170. For the entire season. The Seminoles will try to stop the bleeding when they face Miami on Saturday.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher intends to be the coach of the Seminoles "for a long time."

If Fisher wanted to talk to LSU about its vacancy following the firing of Les Miles, he'd jump right to the top of the Tigers' list of candidates. At least for now, Fisher is dismissing the possibility. "I love this university," Fisher said Wednesday, "and I plan on being here for a long time. I love Florida State, and that's all I'm saying. Anything else is clutter and does not concern me and is not involving me." Fisher, who said he hasn't spoken to LSU about its vacancy, was an assistant coach under Nick Saban and Miles at LSU from 2000-2006.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher says he hasn't spoken to LSU about its coaching vacancy.

"I'm not talking about LSU. No I haven't (had contact) and I'm not talking about it," Fisher told reporters Monday. "We're talking about North Carolina." Fisher won a national championship as LSU's offensive coordinator in 2003. As referenced, the Seminoles host the Tar Heels on Saturday.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher has a record of 10-9 when trailing by 10-plus points at some point during a game.

That is unreal. If you remember, during Jameis Winston's final season the Seminoles trailed in a handful of games thanks to turnovers and poor first halves. They were able to claw back and win almost all of those games. Fisher continued this trend against Auburn on Monday, when his team trailed 21-3 and ended up winning 45-34.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher indicated that he has no concerns about the upcoming Showtime series 'A Season With Florida State.'

Last year, Showtime aired the Hard Knocks-esque 'A Season With Notre Dame.' Florida State is next up for the premium cable network. Outwardly, it might seem like a strange fit given some of the Seminoles' off-field issues in the recent past. Fisher is not concerned. To the contrary -- he believes the added attention this coming season could actually help his squad, saying, "I think it will bring more focus. I think when people know you're watching … you change. I think this team can handle that little bit of distraction, if it's a distraction."
