Florida State University's fast start and horrendous finish in a 36-31 loss to Boise State Saturday brought a few comments from The News Herald Facebook fans, who were hopefully after a strong first half. It's the third year in a row FSU has opened with a loss and follows a season in which it didn't make a bowl game for the first time in decades.

Marie Roughead Thompson: I am disappointed. FSU didn’t look prepared or conditioned. I hope there is a plan for major improvements during the week. Pull it together!!

Howard Houk: As a viewer nonpartisan I would say Florida state has a problem. Unable to hold a huge lead, a defense that looked terrible at times.

Scott Bowdouris: Wow. I can still remember back when FSU was good. I must be getting old.

LaSara Elizabeth Bechler: You must be getting old because 2013 wasn't too long ago. That was their last championship.

Brett Gibbens: A lot of crow sandwiches today.

Daniel Melzer: I’ll allow The News Herald to blame Trump for this.

Tim Justice: Call it what it is. The new Choke at the Doak

Duane Gorey: No defense looks conditioned when you are on the field for enough downs to normally cover two games. Still they never seemed able to defend the run well against that Boise senior offensive line. (There are) folks that know nothing about Boise State. Perennial giant killers and FSU is not a giant now.

Craig Stovall: They were great 1st half, just not as great as Boise's second half.

Wes Mercer: Craig Stovall they blew off all their steam and didn't save any for the second half.
