Florida State's first three games have been filled with questionable antics. Confusing play-calls, bad coaching and undisciplined penalties are preventing the Seminoles from success. Willie Taggart's seat is burning hot right now.
But Florida State is looking for a statement win against Louisville on Saturday. A victory would be a good step forward for a program looking for a turnaround.
In these types of moments, how players respond can dictate an entire season.
With so much on the line in Saturday's game, players got chippy in the pregame warm-up. Pictures have emerged of Florida State and Louisville players jawing back and forth. Tensions are clearly high leading up to the game.
It's looking like it might be a chippy game today. Hopefully, players are able to keep their composure.
Florida State isn't the only team looking to make a statement. Louisville is hoping to have a bounce-back season. Despite a season-opening loss to Notre Dame, the Cardinals are optimistic this season. A win over the Seminoles would be huge for the program.
The big question surrounding this FSU team is how long will Taggart be able to keep his job? Florida State is not meeting any expectations.
But winning always helps. The Seminoles and Cardinals play at 3:30 PM ET on ESPN.
