He was over it...

And, when the FSU-Clemson game was over, and Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney was  talking about championship moments and what makes them his counterpart went on a rant for the ages...

So, here's your best coach rant ever... this week...

Jimbo Fisher went on an EPIC rant about the officiating after FSU's loss to Clemson


There are still parts of the HQ that want him gone from his post, but we think the coordinators will go before he does- giving him one more year to "turn it around." 


SUNDAY PM UPDATE: Fisher got fined and the university got a finger wag from the conference...

Here's the long version from the conference their own selves:

The Atlantic Coast Conference issued public reprimands of Florida State head football coach Jimbo Fisher and Pitt head football coach Pat Narduzzi for violating the ACC Sportsmanship Policy following Florida State’s game against Clemson on October 29, and Pitt’s game against Virginia Tech on October 27, respectively. In addition, the league announced that institutional fines have been issued to Florida State ($20,000) and Pitt ($5,000) as a result of the violations. The funds received from the two imposed institutional fines will be placed into the Weaver-James-Corrigan Postgraduate Scholarship account.

Fisher and Narduzzi’s postgame comments regarding officials were in direct violation of the ACC Sportsmanship Policy that states: “Public criticism of officials or public comments evaluating the officiating of particular contests is not in the best interest of intercollegiate athletics. Individuals associated with the athletics program are prohibited, therefore, from commenting while acting in an official capacity on officiating other than directly to the Conference office.”
