Willie Taggart asks fans to stick with him after collapse
Willie Taggart is asking for fans to stick by him despite another tough loss by Florida State.
Taggart’s Seminoles were looking great to start their game Saturday against Boise State. They scored on their first four possessions and were up 24-6 in the second quarter. They held a 31-19 lead going into halftime but were completely shutout in the second half and lost 36-31.
After the game, Taggart asked for the faith of fans and promised he would get the team out of its losses.
Taggart's message to #FSU fans: "Stick with us. … we’re going to get out of this, I promise you that."

Taggart opened the season on the hot seat for Florida State. The team went 5-7 under him last year — their worst mark since 1975. He appeared to be beginning the season the right way Saturday until it all came to a halt in the second half. He needs to turn things around and quickly, because his promises have not worked out so well.
