HOOVER, Ala. —Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher has drawn renewed blame for the mess at Florida State.

I pinned some of the Seminoles’ struggles on him recently. FSU piled on in a recent Bleacher Report story.

Does that bother Fisher, who led the ’Noles to the 2013 national title and left FSU with the highest winning percentage in the history of the ACC?

“In this business, you learn to have tough skin," Fisher said Tuesday during SEC media days. "You learn the circumstances of everything that happens and how it happens. That’s part of this business. People are going to say and write things, and you know what goes on and you move on.

"I have nothing but respect for my time at Florida State. It is a phenomenal place and those players and kids and everyone that was there. I had great time. We had great success. I wish them nothing but the best. You move on with your business and move on. They’ll be successful I know. That’s a great program.”
