Florida State's DeMarkus Walker Promised Fans "A Different Team" After Loss To Louisville

Florida State senior defensive end DeMarkus Walker gave an emotional speech after his team's loss to Louisville.

Saturday afternoon, Florida State was thoroughly embarrassed by Louisville, falling 63-20 in a matchup of top ten teams. The Seminoles gave up 530 yards of offense to the Cardinals - launching Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson's Heisman Trophy candidacy in the process. Jackson accounted for five touchdowns - four on the ground, one through the air.

After the contest, senior defensive end DeMarkus Walker gave a Tim Tebow-esque promise. He said that moving forward, fans will see a different team out of FSU.

Tebow's famous speech came after a 1-point loss to Ole Miss. The Gators later went on to win the national title.

Suffering a 43-point loss is going to be hard to recover from for the Seminoles. It'd take a lot of mayhem for FSU to get back in the national title picture at this point.
