FLORIDA STATE HEAD COACH JIMBO FISHER: "Well we aren't worried about Alabama just yet. We are five practices in, it is so early. I see an urgency and a want to be coached and learn."

MINDEL: I spoke to Deondre Francois, and he says he has been working on his coordination with his wide receivers, how have you seen him develop?

FISHER: ""His knowledge and his recognition being able to see things and process them that much quicker. Now you have more time to be accurate with the football. And also going out on their own and getting to know their body language and know their cut and their individual time working together."

MINDEL: What other improvements have you seen from last year to this year?

FISHER: "I think his influence on the other players on the team. You have to prove you can play and when you get on other guys, now I think he feels comfortable there and how to put his attitude and demeanor to others on the team."

MINDEL: Let's talk about Alabama, what have you seen from them?

FISHER: "I think you see a group who plays well and will be coached well, and the film we watched last year, they were one play away from winning a national championship, And that is what you expect when you see the recent ten years when Nick has been there."

MINDEL: Lastly Defensive Coordinator Charles Kelly is an Ozark Native, how has he improved from last year to this year? That Louisville game was an eye opener.

FISHER: "You're not measured on one game, you're measured on your season. We got healthy, and we had players who were subbed out who were very unhealthy and he has done a great job as a coach and has been very conscientious. Very knowledgeable and kids love to play for him."

MINDEL: Thank you very much Coach Fisher for your time.

In the coming days, Noah Mindel will report from Tuscaloosa as the Crimson Tide prepare for the Florida State Seminoles.
