Being John Thrasher isn’t easy right now.
The Florida State president is trying to provide a steadying influence as the university combats rumors of head football coach Jimbo Fisher departing for Texas A&M and a leaked report of his players being investigated for the death of a fraternity turtle.

Thrasher already has a list of potential replacements for Fisher lined up, the most surreal being a swap that would bring the man Fisher would be replacing at Texas A&M (Kevin Sumlin) to Tallahassee.
Thrasher is an alumnus of the university and has been Florida State’s president since 2014.
Despite beginning the season ranked No. 3 in the AP Top 25, Florida State needs a win on Saturday against UL Monroe to merely become bowl eligible.
Florida State will host UL Monroe on Dec. 2 (noon EST) and the game will be televised on the ACC Network.
