TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Willie Taggart said the 24-hour rule was in effect in regards to Florida State's 24-3 loss to Virginia Tech on Monday, and by the end of the day Tuesday, he wants his squad over it and ready to move on.
Moving on is something the Noles will have to do quickly, with the second game of the season only four days away.
FSU welcomes FCS opponent Samford to Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday; and while the Noles project to be heavy favorites over the Bulldogs, historically, teams coming off Labor Day losses have been known to have a bit of a hangover.
The Seminoles say, however, they're just ready to move on.
"It's a quick turnaround," said FSU defensive end Brian Burns. "We knew it was coming, so it's nothing we had to prepare for. We already knew so we have to get into the treatment room, look at the film, evaluate it and forget about it. It's over."
When asked if he was happy for the short turnaround, he answered, "Yeah, actually. We need it."
