After #1 Florida State's thrilling OT win last night over Clemson -- head coach Jimbo Fisher read a prepared statement. He strayed a little from the script when he made this declaration at the 1:14 mark of the press conference:
"When your players misstep, you balance education, which we do a lot more than anybody in America, as much as anybody in America..."
Now I must admit, I don't know what "balance education" means -- but, I trust Coach Fisher wasn't referring to the graduation rate of his football players at Florida State University -- this is from the NCAA and a recent University of Pennsylvania study:
Florida State -- all football players: 55% graduation rate
Florida State -- black male football players: 37% graduation rate
