Were there any doubts remaining?

FSU is a bad football team.

No, they are not unlucky. They are not simply injured. They are not in the middle of a tough schedule.

They're bad. Stay-at-home during bowl season bad. Bottom of the ACC bad. Lining up in the wrong direction bad. Get care packages from Wake Forest bad.

The Seminoles suffered their most embarrassing loss of the season Friday night, falling 35-3 to a Boston College team that had been .500 coming in. They gave up 149 yards rushing to A.J. Dillon and never stood a chance. They surrendered five touchdowns in the first three quarters.

"In every phase, they beat us,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. “They lined up, kicked our tails and outplayed us, outcoached us, did everything.”< FSU quarterback James Blackman hit only 11 of 36 passes for 102 yards and was held without a touchdown pass for the first time in six games. It was FSU's first shutout since 2008. "I think (players are thinking), `Wow! Did that really happen?' and worrying about that instead of what they can do to change it," coach Jimbo Fisher said. "Like I said, `Can this really happen?' Yeah. It can. To anybody. At any time." FSU is home against Syracuse Saturday. The game begins at 12:20 p.m.
