Twitter reacts to Florida State’s dreadful first half against Syracuse
The Florida State Seminoles subjected everyone watching to a truly brutal first half of football on Saturday afternoon.
While the Syracuse Orange weren’t particularly impressive, the Seminoles were downright awful. The story of their half was terrible offensive line play, an inability to move the ball, and constant penalties.
It would be fair to say that Twitter was rather disgusted by the showing.
Any thoughts on what FSU does during the week? Because practice doesn't seem to be it.

Beginning to think that winning Florida State's QB battle is actually some sort of punishment https://t.co/ha2WC4IiRh

Hey, is there a name for when animals flee ahead of a natural disaster? Because if there is a name, that's what we should call what Jimbo Fisher did at Florida State.

The best — or worst — was yet to come, however, as the Seminoles managed to let the clock run out at the end of the half despite sitting well within field goal range.
LOL Florida State couldn’t even get a FG attempt. What a total cluster****. This is some Butch Jones at his Tennessee worst stuff.

No big deal, pretty sure way it’s going Aguayo would have missed kick. https://t.co/nKw1GtIsSZ

Does FSU practice?

The Seminoles ultimately ended the half down 6-0 thanks to their defense keeping them in the game. They had just 110 total yards of offense. And no, they have not had the chance to break out the turnover backpack so far in this one.
