Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher has the task of trying to get his team motivated to repeat as national champions this season. Part of that is instilling discipline into the team harder than he ever has before, and on Sunday, he showed that with sophomore defensive back Jalen Ramsey as the example.
Ramsey, one of the young, breakout stars of that title-winning team from last season, got into a aeries of altercations with teammates on the field Sunday, and as a result, Fisher told him that his day was over.
Afterward, Fisher spoke a bit about why Ramsey was sent to an early shower.
“He was told not to do something and he defied me,” Fisher said. “We’ll judge from there and I’m very upset with him.”
Next, the situation got more real, when Fisher proclaimed that Ramsey will decide whether or not he wants to be a Seminole.
“He’ll decide if he wants to play at Florida State,” he said.
Lastly, Fisher sent a stern message to everyone about how exactly he runs this team.
“They’re going to do things my way or they ain’t going to play here,” he said.
Last season during camp, Fisher made a similar call with Jameis Winston, kicking him out of practice for not following orders.
The ‘Noles, especially Jimbo Fisher, will not tolerate anything less than the best; and that include behavior on the field.
