Jacksonville Jaguars star Jalen Ramsey is one of the more outspoken people in all of football. He's also a proud Florida State alumnus, and like other 'Noles fans, is not thrilled with the Willie Taggart era right now.

FSU was among the more disappointing teams in college football last year. Coming over after just one season at Oregon, Taggart brought promise of renewed energy in the program, which hit a real rough patch under Jimbo Fisher, who spent the 2017 season with one foot already in College Station.

Instead, he's struggled to get the program off the ground. FSU went just 5-7, the program's first losing season since 1976.

Taggart entered year two on the hot seat, and Week 1 probably won't help his case much. FSU jumped out in front of Boise State early, but the Broncos fought back, outscoring the 'Noles 17-0 in the second half en route to a 35-31 win.

Ramsey took to Twitter to express his disappointment in how things are going with his program. He's definitely not alone.

Jalen Ramsey's time at Florida State under Jimbo Fisher was a much different experience. He started for the BCS National Champions in 2013, as well as the 2014 College Football Playoff participant and ACC Championship team, and in 2015 as well.

Through three seasons, he recorded 181 total tackles, five sacks, three interceptions, and four forced fumbles. Now, he's one of the most feared cornerbacks in the NFL, and a two-time Pro Bowler.

His words carry a lot of weight, and you can be sure other former Seminole greats feel the same way.
