FSU Sports Information Excerpts:
With late afternoon weather always a concern and summer school now over, the Florida State football team will be practicing mostly in the morning. On Saturday the team hit the field for a 24-period practice in uppers. Despite a cool breeze and lower temperatures, heat was still a factor as newcomers and veterans both felt the affect. Sunday will be an off day from practice but there will still be a lot to do as the Seminoles will spend the morning meeting with the media and then head to fan day beginning at 1:00 p.m.
Head Coach Bobby Bowden:
“The thing that you have to do is make progress everyday for 25 days. I thought the kids understood a little bit more today what we’re trying to do. That’s going to be the key; just keep learning, learning, learning. The freshmen are going to have to learn real quick. I thought it was good practice. They all look good in those shorts.”
On balancing the work between the new players and suspended returners:“Well right now we’re working them all equally; whether you’re on the second or first team you’re getting equal work. If you’re on the second team you could possibly be getting better work because you’re going up against the first-team defense. We’ll gradually ease that group that is going to play in that first ball game up to the first unit and build first unit pride.”
