    What They Are Saying About the FSU-Rice Game

    "Nothing that Florida State would accomplish was likely to alter public opinion and disappointment.

    But, on Saturday, a Doak Campbell Stadium crowd estimated at under 60,000 watched the FSU offense do things better and quicker - both on the ground and in the air. And the defense revealed its promising future by turning to its youth early and often."

    "Florida State's marketing department missed a grand opportunity to bill Saturday afternoon's home football game against Rice as "I Love the '90s."

    The 18th-ranked Seminoles took a retro approach in administering a 55-7 beat-down on the Owls, rolling up 500 total yards - 287 of those on the ground - and rolling out youngsters anxious to leave their mark."

    "Florida State, hungry to rebound from a disappointing loss, apparently needed only a helping of Rice.

    Against the overmatched Owls, the Seminoles rediscovered their running game with Antone Smith and Lorenzo Booker surpassing 100 yards, revitalized their passing attack behind a near-flawless Drew Weatherford and re-established their defensive stinginess with a resounding 55-7 win at Doak Campbell Stadium."
    St. Pete Times

    "Xavier Lee actually took his time strolling off the field Saturday evening. He was well behind just about all of his teammates, and behind Coach Bobby Bowden, usually the last guy off after wrapping up his on-field television interviews at midfield.

    Lee even stopped around the tunnel to make eye contact with the fans who were yelling his name. Then he took off his wrist band and tossed it to one of them, grinning for the first time anyone had witnessed around here in months."
