Players came out of the locker room at Syracuse with tears streaming down their faces, and the players that spoke with the media seemed in a partial state of shock about how things have gone through the first three weeks of the season.
When the players got back to Tallahassee, they called a players-only meeting to figure out the problems.
"It was very positive," quarterback Deondre Francois said. "Got together and trying to iron out the problems that we have, just trying to see what we can do better."
There are a lot of problems to iron out for the 1-2 Seminoles but the players are trying to right the ship before they get into the depths of conference play.
"I think it was good," wide receiver Keith Gavin said. "I think we got a lot out of it. Everybody got an understanding of how everybody felt. We put our feelings aside and really we're just wanting to get better. Starting over, starting fresh, continue to do what we do, execute more, get the victory.
"Everybody was embarrassed by the way we played and they were hurt," Taggart said. "I mean, that was it. There was some hurt players in there, hurt coaches, hurt everybody. And disappointed and frustrated at ourselves."
