FSU Sports Information Excerpts:
Wednesday the FSU players got a little bit of an early Christmas gift when they learned their two-a-day practice was reduced to just one session. The Seminoles practiced for 20 periods in uppers this morning and then came back this afternoon to meet, workout and watch film. FSU may go twice on Thursday according to head coach Bobby Bowden.
The team spent much of the practice working versus scout teams.
In pass rush Emmanuel Dunbar and Paul Griffin all won four battles. Budd Thacker got to the QB three times, Kendrick Stewart, Neefy Moffett and Everette Brown all won multiple battles. Alex Boston also got to the quarterback. For the offense, Rodney Hudson and Evan Bellamy held their own a couple times and Ryan McMahon, Will Furlong and David Overmyer won a battle as well.
In 2-on-2 Drew Weatherford hit Rod Owens deep and also found Preston Parker. Christian Ponder connected with Bert Reed twice and Parker on a deep ball. Patrick Robinson and Benjamin Lampkin both broke up passes.
In red zone skel Weatherford connected on two TD's with Parker and also hit Greg Carr.
11-on-11 started out working with down and distances. Weatherford connected with Chase Walker and hit Antone Smith who turned the dump off into a big play. For the defense Darius McClure had an INT and Michael Ray Garvin broke up a pass.
Practice ended with the 1:00 drill. The offense needed a field goal but was unable to come up with any points despite completions from Weatherford to Rod Owens and Smith. Derek Nicholson had a sack and Tony Carter broke up a Hail Mary to end the session.
Head Coach Bobby Bowden
On today's practice:
"Pretty good practice. Naturally we're having to make a lot of adjustments. We were planning on practicing twice today, but we just want to go this morning, we'll have to use this afternoon for meetings because we've got some guys playing positions they haven't played before--not many, but some."
