Florida State is having an extremely tough Year 1 of the Willie Taggart era and things have gone from bad to ugly in this afternoon's game against Clemson.

The Seminoles, who entered today's game hoping to pull off an upset against the No. 2-ranked Tigers, are getting beaten in every facet of the game.

It's Clemson 45, Florida State 0 midway through the third quarter.

For those wondering, this would be the Seminoles' worst home loss in the history of Doak Campbell Stadium.

"FSU's worst loss in Doak was 44 points (58-14) against Southern Miss in 1981. This certainly has potential to get there," Ira Schoffel tweeted.

We're there now.

"And it's now 45-0 with one and a half quarters to go."

Taggart had said coming into today's game that he thought his Florida State team had been gaining confidence.

“I thought our team was gaining confidence for a while now,” Taggart told reporters. “Since the Syracuse game I thought each week our guys were getting better. We stubbed our toe against Miami, but I felt like we were getting better. Each week our guys are gaining confidence and it is showing and we’re improving.”

The confidence is probably taking a hit today, unfortunately.

Florida State trails Clemson, 45-0, midway through the third quarter. The game is on ABC.
