For those keeping score, FSU now has been sacked 10 times this weekend.

Nine times by Miami in Saturday’s 27-10 humiliation, and once by ESPN College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit, who absolutely blew up the 'Noles during a wrap-up of Saturday’s nationwide action posted on Instagram.

Herbstreit’s rant starts at roughly the six-minute mark of the wrap-up, which can be seen here.

“I want to get this off my chest ― I’m done with Florida State,” Herbstreit told GameDay host Chris Fowler and GameDay personality Chris “The Bear” Fallica.

“I don’t wanna talk about them anymore. I hate the way they represent themselves. Their current roster needs to go back and watch the Bobby Bowden era, because it wasn’t about talking trash and fighting. That’s all they do. They’re the most undisciplined team you’re gonna watch. And they’re a terrible team.”

Speculation about second-year coach Willie Taggart’s job status intensified following Saturday’s debacle, when FSU (4-5, 3-4 ACC) allowed nine sacks ―a program single-game record ― and finished with twice as many penalty yards (75) as rushing yards (31).

Miami’s 17-point margin of victory was its largest against the 'Noles since 2001.

“They’re inspired but they wanna fight. They should get into the UFC, get out of football and go fight people,” Herbstreit said.

“Willie Taggart, who’s one of the classy gentlemen, great guy, I can’t imagine what he’s dealing with with that culture. He’s trying to steer the Titanic.”
