Florida State believes that Auburn was stealing their offensive plays in the first half of the BCS National Championship Game. After the game on Monday, head coach Jimbo Fisher addressed the issue.
“They had a couple of our signals a couple times and were getting to them. That happens, people do it, and that’s our fault. You’ve got to change them, constantly rotate them, being able to get them in different ways. That’s part of the game. I don’t have a problem with that.”
According to Tomahawk Nation, Kelvin Benjamin appeared to alert his coaches early in the third quarter. He yelled, “Dameyune calling all the plays,” referring to former FSU quarterbacks coach, and current Auburn offensive coordinator, Dameyune Craig.
Once the coaching staff realized the issue, they raised towels to shield their play calls from the opposing sidelines. After making the adjustment, Florida State reeled off 229 yards of offense en route to the victory.
