Willie Taggart feels some players ‘quit’ during blowout loss
Willie Taggart lobbed a serious allegation against some of his players following Florida State’s embarrassing 59-10 blowout loss to Clemson on Saturday.
Taggart, who is in his first year as FSU’s head coach, said he felt that some players quit on the team during the game.

A 30-7 loss at Syracuse seemed like the low point for Taggart’s Seminoles this season, but this 49-point loss may have surpassed it.
With games at NC State and Notre Dame and home contests against BC and Florida looming, FSU seems destined for a losing record and perhaps not being bowl-eligible. Taggart needs to get his players to buy back in and focus rather than give up. He’s also falling well short of the preseason promise he made.
