As Jimbo Fisher was leaving Florida State for Texas A&M, an administrative commitment to facilities was one reason why.

So how bad are the Seminoles' facilities, really?

No. 12 in the country, according to 247Sports.

That's better than Miami (No. 24). And Florida (No. 21). And Georgia, Michigan, Washington and Auburn.

It does, however, rank below A&M. The site says the Aggies have the nation's No. 3 facilities, behind Clemson and Oregon. A&M has TV displays over sinks in the restroom, and says is locker room is "almost like stepping into an immersive futuristic playground."

247Sports notes that FSU needs its own football complex, but the Seminoles are working through the logistical issues associated with one.
