Jimbo Fisher wants FSU to play Florida in...Atlanta?


You have to admit that newly minted FSU head football coach Jimbo Fisher isn't willing to let tradition stand in the way of how things are done in Tallahassee. While in Atlanta for a Seminole Boosters club on Monday night, Fisher suggested he would be open to playing the traditional season-ending rivarly game between FSU and Florida to the start of the season.
In fact, he took the idea to its most absurd conclusion. When asked by a fan during a q&a session if FSU had been invited to participate in the annual Chick-fil-A Kickoff in Atlanta, Fisher said the school had been contacted about the possibility of playing against Alabama in the Georgia Dome.
That's when Fisher dropped this little head-exploding idea: Playing Florida in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff. In the Georgia Dome.
FSU-Florida at the start of the season makes sense in as much as it would provide the loser a chance to recover from the loss (which is what Fisher is reported to have said). But playing it in the ATL just isn't going to happen, and Fisher even said as much. But you've got to hand it to him for taking thinking outside the box to its most absurd conclusion.
