Florida State Player Fires Back At Trevor Lawrence (247sports.com)

Florida State defensive lineman

wants to make one thing clear — the Seminoles are not afraid to play fourth-ranked Clemson and any opinions to the contrary are false. Florida State’s game against the Tigers on Saturday was postponed just hours before kickoff due to COVID-19 concerns, leading to widespread reaction on the reasoning behind the matchup being called on gameday.

The league’s medical advisory group has deemed it more safe to play the game later rather than take the field for Saturday’s regularly-scheduled contest.

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence reacted to the news and said his team was ready to play, insinuating the Seminoles backed out. Lawrence has already missed two games this season after testing positive for the disease.

Robinson was quick to respond.

“Whole lotta CAPPIN GOIN ON ON THIS APP EARLY THIS MORNING WE AINT DUCKIN NOOOOOO ACTION buddy,” Robinson tweeted on Saturday.

Robinson later retweeted Lawrence and responded, “We were (ready) too!! We good over here.”

Lawrence actually stayed on Twitter talking about the canceled game. Brett Rutherford, a Tampa Bay Rays podcast host, tweeted at Lawrence.

“There are things bigger than football, Trevor. We are in a pandemic,” Rutherford tweeted.

Lawrence decided to respond, really detailing his frustration.

“You are right,” Lawrence tweeted in response to Rutherford. “Wish it was about the pandemic though.”

The ACC released a statement detailing the postponement, in part saying, “the postponement follows this morning’s game conference call at which time both teams’ medical personnel were unable to mutually agree on moving forward with the game. Both teams continue to adhere to the minimum outlined protocols within the ACC Medical Advisory Group report, which is available on theACC.com (full report).
