1 November 22, 2014 Florida State - 20 Boston College - 17 A Postgame Interview With: COACH JIMBO FISHER JIMBO FISHER: (I m) very proud of our kids. (They) Played hard, made plays when we had to make them. Offense was a heck of a drive at the end. Like I say, that team (Boston College) limited you possession wise. We only had eight in the game, and they did a nice job of keeping things off balance, but we bent, still didn't give up but 17 points which I think is very critical in the game. Offensively we had the ball four times in the first half, scored three. The other time was an interception, which we got through our hands, which I still want to see the film on that one a little bit, too. And then in the second half we hit a first down, got a penalty, had to punt, backed up, and then drive down, we missed the field goal, then we had another penalty and we had the ball at midfield there and got behind the stick and then we dropped a post route down there that we're open on, then we kicked the game-winning field goal, and that was it on offense. Again, (we) moved the ball extremely well. When you get eight possessions in a game, that's not very many, and the dropped post and the holding were critical plays. The guys don't do it on purpose, but you can't make those mistakes in a tight game like that, but that's what keeps it close. Great job our team, tremendous drive to eat the clock and the game at the end, Roberto (Aguayo) hits a field goal, we centered it up just like we do a lot of two-minute drills, and very proud of the way we used that. Defensively, bent didn't break, gave up a couple Third downs. That was a critical third down we gave up coming off the goal line. They hit a power play and we got it bunched up and it bounces outside and they get it, but we've got to make that play. But (I m) still proud. They played much better in the second half. They did a good job, they an midline, they ran speeds, they ran counters, they ran powers, they did a really good scheming in the off week in the things they did. But the quarterback scrambled a couple times, we lost contain. We didn't lose contain, we had a spy on him and he got caught up inside. But Roberto even had a missed field -- we had a high snap which threw the timing off, and we got a missed field goal. But games like that where you don't get many possessions, they're always going to be close games. Again, very proud of our team the way we competed in the game, played well and did a good job on 3rd down, scored in the red zone when we got down there, when we got chances to get down there. I thought Cason (Beatty) punted the ball well. I think we only punted once or twice in the game if I'm not mistaken. Was it twice? But proud of them. Heck of a football game, fun one to watch, I guess. That's the way they go. Again, very proud of our team the way they competed and played very hard. Got to continue to get better. Q. What happened with Rashad s (Greene) arm? JIMBO FISHER: He got hit right there (elbow), and they were just scared he might have broken a bone right there in the elbow when he took that shot, so Jake (Pfeil) ran in and did a quick x-ray and saw he was all right. Just hit him real hard. Jake panicked. Jake is like (their) parent. Doggone trainer. Q. He seemed to still be favoring it. JIMBO FISHER: He did. That's a good shot. He took a shot on that bone, so they went in and checked it out to make sure there was no damage and he could come back. There was no Jimbo Fisher
2 breaks in it or anything. It was just a good shot. Q. Does that show how tough he is? JIMBO FISHER: Oh, it's tough to come back. Again, he broke the all-time yardage receiving record. That's lasted, what, since 1969 or '70? That record is 40-something years old. The all-time receiving yardage record tonight Rashad broke. He has the catches now, he has the yardage. The only one left is the touchdown. That guy is a heck of a player. I thought our seniors stepped up good again, he and Nick (O Leary) and those guys up front, and the offensive line ran the ball at the end of the game, really had to run it. Protected well except for a couple of those holding plays. Had hands to the face. Q. Despite the weather, talk about the dropped passes? JIMBO FISHER: We did have a couple of critical drops. That post route was a very critical drop. A play that Bobo (Wilson) usually makes a play on, that was a big one. That was a big one down the field. Had the over route, and I couldn't see, I thought he had a chance to catch that ball. But we'll look at it. Those all get magnified when you don't get many possessions. Those get magnified. Q. Some fans thought it was important to have a game in the aftermath of the shooting because it helped the process. What's it mean to you to win a game and sort of help that process? JIMBO FISHER: Well, I mean, again, a game is nothing compared to what happened the other day, and again, our thoughts and prayers and everything about Florida State, our condolences go out to everyone. But again, I think it is a little -- athletics has a way of starting a healing process, and that's a heck of a one to heal on right there as far as the excitement and just watching battle and fight and scratch and claw and stay there. I think athletics is so big for your community. I don't know if we truly -- even me, who's been in it my whole life, I really don't know if we really appreciate how much athletics really holds a community, universities, cities together, because they rally behind them so much. I'm glad hopefully we can give a little comfort to some folks that were really suffering. Q. You mentioned your team with the pass protection. How much does that help Jameis (Winston)? JIMBO FISHER: It has. We had a couple breakdowns. They started coming all out blitzing some things, and that's going to happen. But if he's feeling much more comfortable in the pocket, getting balls and driving the ball, getting it out of his hand. It makes you read so much better because when they get clean you can get through your progressions, your decision making. It really helps. Q. Two straight games Dalvin (Cook) has had outings? JIMBO FISHER: Well, and we blocked well, and he just has that knack. Karlos (Williams) ran well in the game, but then Dalvin hit those big runs at the end. We were checking it back and forth. He let neither one of them have it right there, and Karlos did a great job blocking, being himself. How about a senior doing that? Hey, I don't care if that guy is running it, I'll block. Again, it talks about our team. Dalvin is going to be a heck of a football player and he's really developing into that. Q. Some people say he already is. JIMBO FISHER: We'll see. Q. Rashad (Greene), obviously he gets a lot of recognition around here, but you don't ever hear about him for a Heisman. JIMBO FISHER: No, it's the Derek Jeter syndrome. I say that because he's not a boisterous, loud guy. Think about that, we talk about Derek Jeter, and I say that, guy never won a MVP, never won a lot of individual awards, but you look at his numbers and all his teams did was win and he was a large contributor and made the plays at critical, critical times in the games. To me that's what a truly great player -- that's the greatness. And he doesn't want that recognition. He'd just as well -- he just wishes he didn't have to come up here. Not that he doesn't like you, he's just a quiet guy, he'd just pack his stuff, go home, get ready to play next week. That's just Rashad. Q. He dropped a touchdown pass early. JIMBO FISHER: Yeah, he did. He shakes them off. It was just a hair, that was just good timing right there and a good play, but when you Jimbo Fisher
3 have that much, as I call it, it's not false confidence. Guys can get up and down with drops and catches when you're young. I call it graveyard confidence. I've got it, but then you -- he, and Jameis (Winston) is like that, too. Even though they make mistakes, okay, we're going to get this right. There's true confidence in their abilities. Q. Can a game like this be just as important going into next week? JIMBO FISHER: Oh, no doubt. We're going into battle. These games are going to be dogfights. People are going to try and be the one that knocks us out, knocks us off, got nothing to lose, we're going to play hard, but again, learning to play in a physical game, learning to play in a tightly low-scored game, all those things, it definitely does. Every time you're in those situations you learn. Q. This team is a really tough match-up just the way their style of play? JIMBO FISHER: It is, their style and getting the balls to the edges, and it's just a different -- they were even running midline. That's old bone stuff, the old stuff that you don't see very often but they combine all those things. It's a tough challenge. Q. You're going to hear the same talk about those -- JIMBO FISHER: I don't care. We're going to keep playing ball, keep them in line, play Florida, and we're going to keep doing the same thing. Q. Talk about the no huddle offense that was run? JIMBO FISHER: Well, we've been doing a lot of no-huddle, just getting tempo in the game, and then we did, and got a little rhythm and got going. Got a good start. I thought we got off to a really good start. We've done that a couple games already, so just things that we felt comfortable with going into the game. Q. On the last drive, at what point does it become you're going to start setting up a field goal -- JIMBO FISHER: Once we hit inside the 30. Once we got around that 25-yard line or so. I always say this: The 42-yard field goals that most everybody is very, very consistent, once you hit that 25, and then you've got the best kicker in the world, you're going to do that. And I felt very comfortable at the same time for two other reasons. We were making yards in the running game, wanted to be patient and eat the clock and not give them the ball back. It was a critical mistake at the end which actually I'm getting ready to call a time-out and he gave me a time-out. That's what I said. I wanted on with about four seconds so we didn't have to kick off. Q. You said everyone is trying to knock you out and knock you off, Florida is going to be playing a must-chance last game? JIMBO FISHER: They'll be emotional, they'll be ready to play. They've got a very good team. I mean, and a rivalry game? That's what all teams do. That's what any -- I say any opponent should do. That's what I would do. Q. Did you give an answer why the ref wouldn t let Jameis Winston snap the ball? JIMBO FISHER: Oh, he said we had changed a running back somewhere. I don't know. Never mind. I'm going to shut up. I'm getting a little perturbed on some of that stuff. Q. Jameis (Winston) looked like he shooed him away. JIMBO FISHER: He did (laughing). Next question, please. Q. With the way you guys won, kicking the field goal in the last three seconds, how do you feel about your team still remaining in the top four in the College Football Playoff-- JIMBO FISHER: Why wouldn't it? We're undefeated. We're undefeated. We finish every game. Everybody else in the country has not finished at least one game. We've finished every one of them. Isn't that the object? Isn't that the object? Q. Yes, sir. JIMBO FISHER: Okay. Q. I know you wanted to move on from Jameis (Winston), but is there any concern when he couldn t snap the ball on that play? JIMBO FISHER: Yeah, I don't think he realized it. He was caught up in the excitement of the moment. Hey, you get emotional. You play. Jimbo Fisher
4 He didn't realize, he thought he could snap the ball. The kind of play we had was based off a quick run up the line, snap the ball. That's what it was based on. I don't know, we'll see. Q. He didn't say anything to you when he got back to the sideline? JIMBO FISHER: No, no, he doesn't even remember. When I yell at our players, five minutes later I don't remember who I yelled at. You move on to the next thing. He was just making a play and he knew that was his job, get out there and set hut and snap the ball and get the ball out there. You know what I'm saying? Q. Did they refs have something to say about that? JIMBO FISHER: No, they did a good job on that from that standpoint. I think they understood what was going on. Those guys handled that part of the game. They managed the game itself, that part, I thought very good. They did a very nice job. FastScripts by ASAP Sports Jimbo Fisher
5 November 22, 2014 Florida State - 20 Boston College - 17 Postgame Interview With: JAMEIS WINSTON Q. What s it like having kicker Roberto Aguayo be the hero after this game? JAMEIS WINSTON: It's not about being a hero. I'm pretty sure Roberto would say that, too. It's about getting that win, and we've got the best kicker in the country. So that's expected out of 'Berto (Roberto Aguayo). Q. What is the comfort level inside the 30 yard line with a kicker like Aguayo? JAMEIS WINSTON: Once you get inside the 45 we know that Roberto is there. He's tremendous. He deserves that [game-winning kick]. Q. When the interception happened, you looked like you were kind of upset on the field. Was it because it should have been called pass interference, or was it just with the interception? JAMEIS WINSTON: Well, you know, it's a lot of things that happened with that play, and I did get upset. But you've got to move on. You can't focus on the past. Q. Rashad (Greene) looked like he was really hurt and then he came back. How much of a comfort factor is that guy for you? JAMEIS WINSTON: Rashad (Greene) is just an outstanding player, and I'm blessed to have him as one of our wide receivers. This whole program is blessed to have him in it. I mean, he's got the heart of a lion. He's going to keep producing. He's going to keep performing and just keep moving on up in the record books. Q. Does having a game like this where you have to have a little bit of adversity and struggle, can that be just as good an emotional lift going into the Florida game as it would blowing somebody out? JAMEIS WINSTON: Well, the majority of games we've played this year have been like this game, so this is nothing new. But obviously it's going to be a different atmosphere for the Gators. They're coming off a -- well, they beat Georgia so they feel like they can beat anybody, and we're going to be ready. We're going to be prepared. Q. From an offensive perspective how difficult is it watching the other team control the football? Does that put more pressure on you? JAMEIS WINSTON: Well, you know, not really pressure, but we've got to make things happen when we get those possessions, we don't get that many possessions. If you think about it, we beat ourselves. It's not that -- I mean, they played outstanding on defense, but every time we had a big play it was either a penalty or some type of mistake, they just moved us on back, and when you have very little possessions you have to execute. Q. The high snap, was it due to just -- JAMEIS WINSTON: It's no excuse, I should have caught both of them really. You know, Cam (Cameron Erving), this is his second game at center, so obviously we're making some adjustments, and yeah, he's facing a lot of adversity his second game as center, and the ball is wet, the grass is wet, but eventually he got the job done. Like I say, we can't live in the past. I should have caught both of them. Obviously my ankle [is hurting], so I probably would have had to have a high vert to get them. We're going to start executing. Jameis Winston
6 Q. What's it like from the sideline when Boston College is driving in the fourth quarter? Do you get antsy on the sideline? JAMEIS WINSTON: Well, we got confidence, you know, so I told them, get ready to score. Obviously we know we've got the best field goal kicker in the country and we knew our defense was going to somehow get a stop. We're looking to try to score. Like I said, we've been in that situation a lot this year, so it's no sweat, no worries. We're just going out there and trying to win a football game. Q. What did you see on the first play of the final drive that Karlos reversed and you set a block to spring him for a big gain? JAMEIS WINSTON: Well, the will to win. Like I say, we're trying to win a football game. Nothing else is going through our mind. We're not thinking about if we mess up, we're thinking about how are we going to win this football game. The one thing about this team, everybody has their individual responsibility to help us win. If you think about it, if Roberto (Aguayo) doesn't kick every extra point we still might lose, so he's part of being the hero every single time. Q. Can you talk about the ongoing ankle problems you ve had? JAMEIS WINSTON: It probably was bothering me more today because of the turf. It was wet out there, so it was soft. But my ankle is fine. It's getting better. I'm doing my treatment, and hopefully by next week I won't even have to tape it up that much. Q. Do you feel it when you're running more or stepping into it? JAMEIS WINSTON: Both. Q. Seemed like you reinjured it during the game a little bit. How much did you favor it towards the end of the game? JAMEIS WINSTON: You know, the only reason I was looking like that was because it was raining, and they had very long drives, and when you get cold like that you've got to get yourself back up. That was probably the worst game to have a sprained ankle. Q. How much harder did that make it, the extreme weather? How did the rain affect everything? JAMEIS WINSTON: Well, it's kind of in your mind, especially with the guys and the routes, seeing the ball in, holding on to the football. I think we only turned the ball over one time this game, and we did a real good job of protecting the football. Q. What was the ref saying to you when you tried to get the snap off in the second half? JAMEIS WINSTON: Oh, he was just holding it because he said we had a substitution. It was actually a fast-tempo play, so I was trying to get up under there and let it ride. Q. What are your thoughts about next week's rivalry game with Florida? JAMEIS WINSTON: Like I say, it's our last home game of the regular season, and then it's against the Gators. I don't know much about the rivalry, but I've played in one, and we won, so I know the guys around here from [the state of] Florida are going to be banging their heads against the wall because we have to win this game. So I look forward to it, and hopefully we get a win. Q. You guys seem to be downgraded (in the polls) every time you win a game close. Do you think much about that? JAMEIS WINSTON: Well, you know, we were downgraded every time we blew someone out last year, so think of the irony of that. If we win the game close, we're bad, when we blow someone out, we're bad. But the thing is we're a team, we're a family at Florida State. What everyone else thinks about us, that's none of our business, as long as we love each other, as long as we trust in each other and as long as we believe in each other and keep winning football games, I think we're still going to do what we have to do. Q. (Running back) Dalvin (Cook) had big runs for you down the stretch for the second straight week. Talk about what he did. JAMEIS WINSTON: Well, all of our backs are tremendous, but for Dalvin (Cook) to be young and do the things that he does is very impressive. He's definitely one of the most electrifying backs in the country. I think if we can hand him the ball 30 times, he would have numbers off the charts. Jameis Winston
7 No. 3 Florida State vs. Boston College Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014 Florida State Offensive Player Quotes Redshirt Senior Offensive Lineman Cameron Erving On the overall performance of the offensive line: We played pretty well. A few times edging on blocks, a few times, that s why the holes weren t there as much as they were supposed to be. At least from our perspective from playing, I didn t really see it. I ll see it on film more. But I feel like it was the edging on blocks sometimes, or for me personally. But we played alright. They throw a lot at you blitz-wise. Those guys had a long time to prepare for us and they brought a lot of good stuff. We picked up the blitzes, we just had to pick it up on the run, as well. On how this game was different from other recent close games: It felt a little different seeing as how we played a different opponent, because Boston College, they tried to run the clock out on us. They don t want to put us on the field a lot of times to get momentum on offense. They did a tremendous job with the game plan they had put in. A lot of respect for Boston College. They ve always played us great since I ve been here. Senior Wide Receiver Rashad Greene: On breaking a receiving record: It feels good. It s one of those things that I don t really dwell on right now because I m so focused on my teammates, this season and our goals. After everything is over and done with, it was a great accomplishment. I m more proud of the win than my own accomplishments. So it was good. On the final drive of the game: We were trying our best to go down there and score, at least get in position to get a field goal. Our motto was to just take care of the ball and do what we need to do and control the line of scrimmage.
8 No. 3 Florida State vs. Boston College Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014 Florida State Defensive/Special Teams Player Quotes Redshirt Junior Defensive Tackle Derrick Mitchell Jr. On the defense being on the field for most of the game: It is definitely tough. They are going to run the ball, run their plays. They are going to be consistent with it. A lot of powers, a lot of counters so we knew it was going to be hard to stop. But we finally got clicking, we were finally able to get some crucial stops. On how he felt about the defense against Boston College s strong rushing attack: We had a couple of shaky points, but I feel we did our duty. You know, it is just normally maybe one person here and one person there, so we have to get consistent all across the board. On the giving up some first downs on long third down situation: I felt like we have to do a better job with getting off the field on third downs. Sometimes we were able to do it, and sometimes we weren t. When we weren t able to do it, that s when they were able to get those long drives. On the mental and physical exhaustion of playing a team with a running style of offense: It can be exhausting once they are converting those third downs and doing that type of stuff, but this is why we come to Florida State for the big time physical games like this. Redshirt Sophomore Kicker Roberto Aguayo On missing the field goal and coming back to kick the game winning field goal: I talked to my teammates and we moved on, and I knew there was going to be another kick and I told them be ready for another one. That one was in the past, move on from it and we hit another one. I know there are going to be misses out there. Obviously I kick to make it, but it happens. The snap wasn t there, Cason Beatty tried to hold it down, missed it by a little bit, but it happens like I said. I talked to them after, we regrouped and on to the next one. We can t worry about it. We can t dwell on it. We got a game to win. On whether or not the rain was a factor with his kicking: I can t put the excuse on the rain because there are people in the north kicking in the snow. It does make the conditions and makes the kicks harder, honestly, with the ground being muddy. It is harder to kick it, but it was well in my range as a 40-yard kick so I knew that factored out. I don t blame it on the weather.
9 No. 3 Florida State vs. Boston College Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014 Boston College Postgame Quotes Head coach Steve Addazio Opening Statement: It was obviously a very disappointing loss, a tough game. We played a good opponent, played hard. We had 313 to their 390, rushed for 240. We had two freshmen tailbacks, Hilliman and Outlow, I thought played really, really well. I thought our quarterback played really well, I thought our offensive line played well. We played physical and we played hard. At Boston College, we came down here to win these games. Someone asked me coming out of the locker room if I was proud of my football team; of course I am proud of our football team. Am I proud of their effort? Absolutely, I am proud of their effort, their toughness, the physicality, the way we played, no question about that. We didn t come down here to lose this football game. As we build this program, there is no way, shape or form are we going to take any solace on walking off this field saying wow, you played them really close. We are coming down here to build this program to win these football games. And that is what we will do here; we are building something. There will be that time and its coming in the real near future. On the play of the Boston College defense tonight: We created a turnover, we were able to stop them a couple of times. We needed to get off the field and we struggled early with that with those drives. We are going to get to the point where you re not going to see a team go down the field at the end of the game like that and take it away from us. It doesn t demean the effort that was put forward, but that s just something that we have to get shored up. On going for the trick play before the field goal attempt in the fourth quarter: We felt great about the play, we had it. We had the play; we worked on it and wanted to take a shot. Obviously, we didn t want to be in a situation where we were kicking it. We were trying to avoid kicking that field goal like that, we wanted to go for the score. We felt great about the play, I feel great about the play right now in hindsight. We probably would have liked to get the play off a little earlier, even with that we were able to get two hands on the ball. They lost him; it was a great call, it was the right time for the call. It didn t happen and forced us into a field goal. It was a makeable field goal for us. We just missed it, that s life. On Florida State ability to find a way to win: Florida State is the number one team in the country. Florida State is a very good football team. They play their best football in the second half. They rise up; Florida State is a hell of a team. I think we played a hell of a football game against them today is what I think. All I can tell you is this, I m not here to speak for anybody else, I ve been in that situation before, when all you hear is everything that you don t do well enough, yet you re undefeated. I don t get all that, I don t think I ever will. The object is to win football games and find a way to win and they have obviously done an unbelievably great job of doing that, that s what I really look at. They play in a Power 5 conference, I think one of the better Power 5 conferences, and week in and week out they find a way to win. It s a heck of a football program and a heck of a football team.
10 No. 3 Florida State vs. Boston College Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014 Boston College Player Quotes GRADUATE QUARTERBACK TYLER MURPHY On Florida State s final drive to win the game: You know, it s not fun. You know you d rather have the ball in your hands. We had a chance to make a play and I just didn t make it. I fell short. I mean, we battled hard, but like Coach (Steve Addazio) said, we didn t expect to come into this game and keep it close or just play hard, we got on a bus and got on a plane, and our goal is to win. You know, we fell short. We expect to play hard, we expect to give great effort. That s why you put the Boston College uniform on and that s what you re expected to do. We fell short, like Coach said, we had a chance to make a play and I didn t make it. On Boston College s trick play in the fourth quarter: We spent time on it, but we didn t hang our hat on that play. We needed to execute on all phases of the game. I just had to make the play. I didn t make the play. If you want to win games like that, you ve got to make the play, and I didn t do that. On execution of trick play: It was a perfect pass, I went up and got my hands on it. You know as a quarterback you expect guys to make the catch when they get their hands on the ball. It was my chance to do the same and I didn t make the play. I ve got to find a way to just make that play and get better, and watch the film and figure out what ways we could have pulled it off. On speaking to Florida State QB Jameis Winston after the game: He just told me to keep my head up and (that) I m a hell of a player. I just wished him the best of luck with the rest of the season. I told him that he s a great player as well. It was just short small talk like that. He s a great player and he s done a lot for this program. He s a great leader and he s done a lot. You know, hat off to him, just fighting through and finding a way to help his team win at the end. On the touchdown pass to tie the game: It wasn t really play-action, it was really just more of a drop back pass. I kind of got flushed a little bit to my left, and I was looking for (WR Shakim Phillips) and next thing you know, I see him running downfield with his hand up. I just wanted to put the ball (on him) and give him a chance to score. I didn t want to overthrow, he made a great play and ran under it, made a great catch and finished the play off. (He) did a great job. My job was easy, (he) did all the hard work of getting open and making a difficult catch.
