    FSU Prepares For Home Opener Against UAB


    Excerpts From FSU Sports Information:

    Florida State conducted its first full practice since the season-opener today. The Seminoles spent 20 periods practicing in uppers. The team worked on special teams, field goal, in position groups and versus scout teams. FSU will conclude its preparations for the Blazers on Thursday before heading to Thomasville Friday.

    INJURY NOTE:

    Mister Alexander suffered a torn ACL in his left knee Monday night in the Clemson game.

    PRACTICE HIGHLIGHTS:

    Gary Cismesia made 5-of-6 attempts in field goal.

    Xavier Lee and Rod Owens connected on two long TD passes versus the scout team. Carr also hauled in a pass from Drew Weatherford.

    In 7-on-7 Weatherford had a deep TD pass to Carr and also had multiple connections to Richard Goodman on top of a completion to Preston Parker.Lee completed a nice pass to Bert Reed and Dionte Allen picked off a pass.

    In pass rush Rodney Hudson, Daron Rose and Shannon Boatman won battles for the offense. On the other side of the ball, Emmanuel Dunbar recorded three wins and Eli Charles, Paul Griffin, Andre Fluellen and Kendrick Stewart each recorded multiple wins.

    The team completed practice with the 1:00 drill. Neither the ones nor twos were able to score. The first team offense started out with a nice run by Jamaal Edwards but a sack by Alex Boston and another INT by Dionte Allen ended the drive. The twos were ineffective as well and after an incompletion forced by an Eli Charles pressure, head coach Bobby Bowden blew the whistle to close out practice.

    Head Coach Bobby Bowden:

    "The big thing today was to try and get a lot of repetition. The only way you are going to correct mistakes is do it over and over and over and over and over `till it becomes a habit. Now that's the big thing we tried to get across today. Just cut out the errors and the missed assignments. We'll be a lot better when we do that."
