Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports
Tallahassee Democrat senior writer Corey Clark wrote an article on Tuesday suggesting that if Jimbo Fisher wants to leave Florida State that administrators and fans should let him go.
quote:

Here’s my advice to FSU fans. And administrators for that matter.

If he wants to go, let him go.

You’re Florida State. You’re one of the elite programs in the country. You’re a better program than LSU actually. You don’t need to plead with a coach to not leave. You don’t need to offer another enormous raise. You don’t need to be used for leverage.

If the one coach in the country who would leave FSU for LSU actually does it – then so be it.

With your resources and recruiting base you should be just fine.

What you can’t be is in a yearly bidding war to convince a head coach who has one of the very best jobs in America to stay at one of the very best jobs in America.

You’re above this.

FSU is not a better program than LSU. Not by quite a bit.. Put FSU in the SEC and theyre year in and year out the 4-5-6 best team. But Fisher has maybe run out of mojo in Tally. Let him move on.

This writer is obviously delusional about Florida State being a better program than LSU, but nonetheless I agree with him. If Jimbo wants to go to LSU, let him go.

LSU is the #4 rated Football program since 2000 (16 years). Florida State is #6. Both are good programs but to say Florida State is a better program is simply incorrect. LSU also rates higher on Forbes list of most valuable college football teams. LSU plays is a better conference and a better recruiting situation than Florida State. LSU pays its' Assistant Coaches substantialy better than Florida State and has a larger fan base than Florida State. LSU's facilities areat the very top of College Football and still being improved. LSU has a larger stadium and outdraws Florida State in attendance. Not saying Florida State isn't a great program. It is. However, to have attempt to portray LSU as a downgrade is ridiculous.

Follow up. We had to watch FSU play crap for twenty years while it built it's program. It's played two teams a year, Miami and Florida and routinely lost to them with wide right field goals.

He does not offer that much. He rode Winston all he could, now a team w 3 losses in the ACC ..LSU better open its eyes.

Sounds like someone is pissed at their coach because they know he's leaving even though he says he's staying. We know that feeling! It really does stink but that's the world we live in now. Besides, Jimbo should have been hired 12 years ago instead of that idiot Miles! C'mon home Jimbo!

God I hope the people making the coaching hire dont listen to people like you. Jimbo isn't good enuf because he lost 3 whole games this year. Hopefully there smart enuf to look a tad deeper than that!!!

If they are such a great program with outstanding resources, why can't they pay their assistants worth a damn?

BINGO!!! Their facilities can't even fricking touch ours either. FSU is a great program in itself, but it's definitely not better than LSU.

FSU plays clempson. That's the only competition they've had for years. They play schools like Duke Gtech Boston College UNC Wake fricking Forest.
