Jimbo Fisher's interesting vote of confidence for embattled Charles Kelly




As far as votes of confidence go, the one Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher gave to defensive coordinator Charles Kelly on Monday was ... interesting.

Kelly is under fan scrutiny for an underachieving defense. I asked Fisher about that Monday during his weekly news conference.

"I have extreme confidence in Charles," Fisher said. "Charles is a great football coach, coached a very good game. They made a couple plays at the end, and he's done a really nice job. We'll continue with Charles being our coordinator, and go through this year, and hope to finish the year very strong."

Did you get all that?

Through this year.

Maybe it's parsing words too carefully. Maybe it's a verbal slip by a coach who talks as fast as an auctioneer. 

Or maybe vocal FSU fans might be getting their wish.
