FSU Sports Information Excerpts:
The team went for 18 periods in uppers.
In pass rush Budd Thacker had a big day getting to the QB four times. Emmanuel Dunbar, Everette Brown and Kendrick Stewart joined him in the backfield once each. On the other side of the line Rodney Hudson, Daron Rose and David Overmyer each recorded a win.
In pass skel Drew Weatherford connected with Rod Owens and Christian Ponder had a nice completion to Bert Reed.
In 11-on-11 Antone Smith turned in a nice run on the first play. Weatherford hooked-up with Owens and Preston Parker. Defensively Myron Rolle had a pick that he returned for six the other way, Jamie Robinson had a tackle for a loss and Dionte Allen made a great read on a screen pass, put a big hit on the receiver and broke up the pass.
Head Coach Bobby Bowden
"It was a pretty lively practice today and we will practice twice on Monday."
On the running back situation and is Preston Parker getting some reps at that position:
"He is working both ways, at wide out and running back."
On the importance of having a two-way player like Parker:
"It's a matter of that we need him at both positions. The other team has to account for him playing at both spots. They want to know where he is."
Sophomore Everette Brown
On getting pressure on Kentucky quarterback Andre Woodson:
"For me personally, it's just as important then any other game, but he's not as mobile and like any quarterback, he does not like to get hit. We definitely want to collapse the pocket and force him to make throws that he doesn't want to make. I haven't had a whole lot chances to look at them on film but they have a pretty big offensive line. But for me, coming off the edge, I have to create havoc and get to the quarterback. He's a good passer; I mean he was up for the Heisman earlier in the year, so you can't take that away from him. But we have to get him rattled."
