    Noles Wrap Up Preparations For Yellow Jackets

    FSU Sports Information Excerpts:

    The triple option is not easy to prepare for but ready or not the Seminoles have their plan in place. Thursday was the final chance for the Seminole defense to work against Paul Johnson’s vaunted ground attack and the team spent 15 periods in shorts working on the final plans to not only face the Yellow Jacket offense but one of the nation’s best defenses as well. FSU will leave Friday to head for Atlanta and a stadium no current Seminole has ever played while wearing the Garnet & Gold.

    QB Christian Ponder:

    On how practice has been this week:

    “Everyone’s been focused and motivated and came out and worked hard all week. I think it was one of our better weeks at practice. I think we’re prepared. I think over the next couple of days everyone’s going to prepare and watch film and get ready. I think we’ll be ready.”

    On Georgia Tech’s front four:

    “They’re quick. They rush the pass really well. They do a good job of applying pressure and everything. We’ll have to good up front as well and we’ll have to control the line of scrimmage.”

    LB Derek Nicholson:

    On how practice went for the defense:

    “It went well. We were trying to get everything done, doing our defenses and trying to get all of our assignments with the defense we play.”
