Defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews, who is recovering from pneumonia, returned to FSU for meetings Wednesday but he hadn't yet been cleared to coach an outdoor practice. Bowden was not available for comment, but several players said they had heard Andrews would make the trip this weekend.
Bobby Bowden still has a sense of humor. On the weekly ACC teleconference, he was asked about the late start and he said he couldn't remember a specific game in his career that started as late as this one."Oh my goodness," he said. "Let me just say this. I'll be waking up to go to the game."
Coaches are not expecting to have receiver Joslin Shaw or defensive end Kevin McNeil available for the Colorado game. This would be the third game the two will miss after Bobby Bowden said the two violated team rules.
