Florida State head coach Willie Taggart has a theory about why his team lost Monday's season opener to Virginia Tech by a score of 24-3.

Taggart suggested Wednesday he believes Virginia Tech defenders faked injuries to slow the Seminoles' tempo, according to Andrea Adelson of ESPN.

"It happened too often so it's hard not to," Taggart said when asked on a conference call if he thought the injuries were intentional.

It was the first time Florida State failed to score a touchdown at home since a 12-3 loss to Wake Forest in September 2008.

"Well it is what it is, I guess it's part of football now," Taggart added. "That's all I can say."
