Jimbo Fisher: Auburn stole Florida State’s signs

Jimbo FisherDid Auburn get out to a dominating start against Florida State on Monday night because they had the Seminoles’ signals? Jimbo Fisher seems to believe that is the case.

In a press conference with reporters on Tuesday, the Florida State coach said he had his staff protect signals with a towel in the second half of the game because he believed Auburn had their signs at points in the game.

“They had a couple of our signals a couple times and were getting to them,” Fisher said via AL.com. “That happens, people do it, and that’s our fault.”

Florida State made an adjustment, and it may have paid off.

After being held to 10 points and two scoring drives in the first half, the Noles put together 17 points and three scoring drives on offense in the second half. They were down 21-10 at halftime and won 34-31.

Whether sign stealing was a factor in the game or not, Fisher isn’t bothered by the possibility of Auburn jacking them.

“That’s part of the game,” Fisher said. “I don’t have a problem with that.”
