TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Typically, Florida State head coach Willie Taggart doesn't say much during his opening remarks in his weekly press conference. But, on Monday, he did.
Taggart said that Seminole fans, alumni and students deserve a team that's playing better than they have.
And he's right.
It's no secret most of the Noles' problems in their first three games of the year have stemmed from their offensive line and things wont get any easier on Saturday against Northern Illinois, as they'll be missing both Landon Dickerson and Derrick Kelly against the Huskies.
All season long, the Seminoles have tried different combinations up front and nothing has worked; the Noles are averaging just 96.7 rushing yards per contest, a mark that has them ranked 121st in the country and dead last in the ACC, while the offense is scoring just 15.3 points.
On Monday, Taggart said when it comes to fixing the front five, his coaches might have to get creative.
"I think everything's on the table right now and make sure we find answers and making sure we find the right five guys in there to get us going," Taggart explained. "Again, with a group that we don't have much depth at all from the beginning. Anything is possible right now."
