Florida State fan questions Jimbo Fisher's loyalty at Fisher's radio show (Video)

With the rampant speculation about Texas A&M’s interest in hiring Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, things were bound to get a little awkward at his radio show on Wednesday night.

But for the first 45 minutes of the show, which takes calls from fans on the phone and on location, it was business as usual. One fan asked about pants. Another asked about the defensive line. A young girl asked Fisher to call some trick plays against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday, a game that can clinch a bowl berth for the Seminoles.

And then this man, Mike, approached the mic.

It did not go well for Mike.


“It’s been kind of a tough season and I remember watching a lot of your press conferences. ” the man said. “You talked about how we need to be committed to the program and keep cheering for the team. And we need to be talking about that. About loyalty to the program. So I’m wondering, where’s the loyalty to the program, Jimbo?”

At that point the microphone was snatched from his hand. And as you can see in the video above, he was escorted (rather rudely) from the premises.

Mike certainly got his point across.

Fisher has been connected to LSU the last two offseasons, and the rumblings about A&M seem more serious than the LSU rumors. FSU finishes out its season on Saturday. We’ll probably get an answer whether Fisher stays in Tallahassee or departs for College Station, soon after.

    Inuit walk away from talks on reforming federal northern food subsidy program

    Talks to reform subsidies intended to eliminate the $10 carton of milk face by northern families remain stalled over concerns from Inuit that they don't have enough control over changes to Nutrition North. The group was one of five Inuit organizations that last April pulled out of an advisory committee on reforming Nutrition North. The program subsidizes northern retailers to reduce the cost of perishable food, which can be several times higher in the North than it is further south.

    Court says insurer must pay N.B. diocese $3.3 million to cover abuse claims

    An insurance company has been ordered by New Brunswick's top court to pay over $3.3 million to a Catholic diocese to cover the cost of compensation for decades of sexual abuse by priests. The province's Court of Appeal ruled that Aviva Insurance Company of Canada breached its contract when it denied coverage of claims resulting from a conciliation process set up by the Catholic Diocese of Bathurst. "The question on appeal is whether the diocese is entitled to damages for breach of contract in amounts that involve the costs of, and payments made through a conciliation process the diocese set up as a result of its insurer's denial of coverage," Justice Marc Richard said in a written ruling released Thursday.

"Having looked at the specimen in 2004 for the first time myself, it too took me nearly 10 years to think outside the box and realize what it really was, a baby Tylosaurus yet to develop such a snout," said Takuya Konishi, lead author on the study. A U of A faculty of science alumni who now teaches at the University of Cincinnati, Konishi said the light went on when he saw another monasaur specimen.

    The new fee goes into effect on Oct. 29 for any new smartphone or tablet models launched in the European Economic Area and running Google's Android operating system, the company announced on Tuesday. Companies can offset the charge, which applies to a suite of apps including the Google Play app store, Gmail and Google Maps, by agreeing to bundle Google's search and Chrome internet browser and feature them prominently.

    The University of Southern California said Friday that it would pay $215 million to settle claims of sexual abuse and harassment by a school gynecologist, but lawyers for hundreds of the accusers say it's not enough money and the university has yet to fully disclose what it knew about the doctor's behaviour . The tentative settlement, which needs a judge's approval, will provide compensation ranging from $2,500 up to $250,000 to women who say Dr. George Tyndall abused them between 1988 and 2016, USC Interim President Wanda Austin said in a statement . About 500 current and former students have now made accusations against Tyndall and filed various lawsuits.
