PINEHURST, NC — Florida State head football coach Jimbo Fisher is facing a minimum of 85 years in prison after taking responsibility for the Seminoles football program yesterday at ACC media days.

“You as the head coach take responsibility,” Fisher said to the assembled media regarding FSU’s recent arrests and behavioral issues. The head coach and 2013 national championship winner was them swarmed by local, state and federal law enforcement officials.

“It’s rare that you get the head of a criminal organization to admit full responsibility, especially in a public setting like that,” said Jack Meyerhoff, the head of an FBI task force that has been looking into the Florida State

“It’s rare that you get the head of a criminal organization to admit full responsibility, especially in a public setting like that,” said Jack Meyerhoff, the head of an FBI task force that has been looking into the Florida State program since the Bobby Bowden era. “It was a slip of the tongue by Fisher, but we’re happy to finally get him. Lots of people in and around Tallahassee can sleep tonight knowing the streets are safer.”

Fisher was arrested and hit with dozens of charges, ranging from unpaid traffic tickets to violent crimes to arson, racketeering and operating a criminal enterprise across state lines. If convicted on all charges, the minimum sentencing guidelines would equal 85 years behind bars, with a maximum of 327 years. Either way, the head coach would never see the outside of prison in his lifetime.

Florida State University is standing behind the coach, despite the serious nature of his admission.

“We believe in innocent until proven guilty in America,” said FSU president John Thrasher. “And at Florida State, we believe guilty really isn’t all that bad as long as your produce on the field.”

Officials: Escaped NY Prisoners Were Hoping to Join Florida State Football Team

ALBANY — Law enforcement revealed today that captured prisoner David Sweat has spoken openly for the first time about the full extent of his plans with fellow escapee Richard Matt after they broke out of Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York last month.

“Sweat maintained all along that the original plan was to go to Mexico, but that didn’t strike us as factual because we would have had people looking for them at the border by the time they made it that far,” said Michael Timmow, the FBI agent in charge of the investigation. “Finally, today, he revealed their true intention, one that makes much more sense — they hoped to be welcomed and harbored in the Florida State football program.”

The two prisoners had done their research and believed that Jimbo Fisher and Florida State football would be the best chance for the pair to live in the United States.

“They had done a lot of research and saw the Seminoles as the best option for them,” said Timmow. “They initially looked at the Florida Gators because of their admiration for Aaron Hernandez, but in the end, Jimbo recruited them the hardest.”

While Sweat is 34 and Matt, now deceased, aged 49, they believed Florida State would give them a shot to play since the Seminoles once played a middle aged Chris Weinke at quarterback for four years.

“Getting to Tallahassee was their goal and they probably would have thrived there if they had made it,” said Timmow. “We’re just lucky we got them first.”
