Jimbo: "Our quarterbacks won't be allowed to talk this week"
Heading into their game this weekend at NC State, Jimbo Fisher and the staff are making sure that they goe the extra mile to make sure that the offense is prepared for a rowdy crowd. This road trip will mark the Seminoles first game outside of Florida.
On top of the noise and music being pumped into practices, the quarterbacks have been told that they are only allowed to whisper during practice this week.
Fisher notes that whispering will force players to be more alert and focused on the field.
“We’ll make our quarterbacks whisper. They won’t be allowed to talk. Making our guys read lips, making them see things. We’ll have the noise out there making all that ruckus, making it as loud as we can. We’ll have to be able to communicate by sign language.”
“The whispering, you’ll be shocked how much that helps. It makes guys pay attention, they have to focus. Sometimes you do it you can even get better on the road. You really get guys focused and attention on things.” Fisher explained.
Interesting coaching strategy.
