Florida, Fisher return many players in 2012
“We didn’t achieve the wins of which I think we were capable of,” Fisher said Friday. “We learned a lot about our guys and handling adversity.”
Fisher earned a pair of extensions that has him making $2.7 million annually through the 2016 season.
University President Eric Barron said after he’s proud of the way Fisher has conducted the program and speculated that maybe the team was ranked a bit too high at the beginning of the 2011 season.
Hopkins, a stellar student who paints his shoes gold a day or two before each game, already has booted 63 field goals and has 326 points. He’s likely to surpass the ACC and Florida State scoring records _ an identical 393 points _ barring injury. Return specialist Greg Reid is also likely to surpass the ACC career mark. He is only 180 yards shy of the league punt return mark of 1,296 yards held by former Virginia Tech star Eddie Royal.
The major personnel departures include punter Shawn Powell, wide receiver Bert Reed and linebacker Nigel Bradham, who led the Seminoles in tackles three straight seasons.
It would seem Florida State would have little trouble achieving its 36th straight winning season and earning a 31st consecutive bowl bid. Fisher isn’t anticipating another non-BCS bowl.
Next year’s schedule includes nonconference visits from Florida and Orange Bowl champion West Virginia in addition to league stopovers by Clemson, Boston College, Wake Forest and Duke with road trips at South Florida, Miami, Virginia Tech, Maryland and North Carolina State.
The Seminoles open their season Sept. 1 against Murray State (Ky).
