The Florida State Seminoles are still feeling the effects of getting demolished by the Clemson Tigers at home. Toward the end of their 49-point loss, two players on Willie Taggart’s team were caught throwing punches in the second half.
If the Seminoles are going to maintain their winning culture, then disciplining student-athletes for these actions is necessary. Well, Florida State is wasting zero time showing they won’t tolerate any nonsense this season or in the future.
Despite leading the team in receiving yards, Nyqwan Murray will be suspended for the first half against NC State on Saturday. In addition, backup linebacker Zaquandre White will receive the same punishment for his role in the scuffle.

Murray is by far the best wideout on the roster, as he currently has 40 receptions for 536 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
White hasn’t spent much time on the field for the Seminoles, but he did make four tackles over the weekend.
Now, Florida State will have to play NC State on the road. Although the Wolfpack have lost back-to-back games, they still own an impressive 5-2 record.
At 4-4, the Seminoles continue to show that life after Jimbo Fisher can be quite rough.
