Excerpts From FSU Sports Information:
Florida State football got practice underway on Thursday but the team was not outside for long. After making it through special teams work and some position drills, the offense moved to field one to face the scout team with crowd noise being piped in for the first time. That only lasted about a period though because a massive storm swept through Tallahassee. With lightning present in the area, the offense and defense split up. While the D watched film in the Moore Athletic Center, the offense went over and worked out in Tully Gym. The two units then switched. When the offense returned to Moore they spent some time walking through plays in the turf room. Florida State is expected to return to practice Friday afternoon.

(on Clemson's running back tandem of Spiller and Davis)
"I'm not really concerned about those two guys (Clemson's C.J. Spiller and James Davis). Those guys did what they did last year. It's my opportunity now being the featured guy to go out and do what I can do. Obviously the difference between their team and our team last year was they had holes and we didn't have too many holes out there. I don't take anything away from those two guys - they are great backs. I'm just going to out and compete and how ever it turns out it turns out.
