    Tuesday Practice Focuses On "That Darn Quarterback"


    FSU Sports Information Excerpts:

    Last season the Virginia Tech Hokies broke two big streaks. They ended Bobby Bowden’s 15-0 run versus the school and they also ended a 12-game losing streak versus the Seminoles. There is one streak the Seminoles will try to extend though and that is five straight versus Virginia Tech in Doak Campbell Stadium. The preparations for Saturday’s game got underway Tuesday with a 22 period practice.

    Head Coach Bobby Bowden:


    “The task we have Saturday is trying to contain that darn quarterback (Tyrod Taylor). Last week against Boston College he runs up and down the field, amazingly hard to trap. You remember he killed us last year. He’s more dangerous this year.”

    On today’s practice:


    “We had a pretty good practice today. I though Rod Owens had some good catches. Marcus Sims continues to catch the ball, too.

    OL Coach Rick Trickett::


    On what the offensive line needs to work on:


    “They’ve all got things to work on. They’ve got two years of things to work on. We’re not even close to where we’re going to be obviously. He’s (David Spurlock) got a lot to work on but I’m trying to keep it as simple as I can and perfect the basics, the reach block, cut off block, pass set and things like that. We’ll just grow with the rest of it. You can give them everything out there coaching but experience, you can’t give them that. They’ve got to earn that.”

    Bobby better watch it. In today's political environment, "that darn quarterback" is likely to be a considered the comment of a racist.

    That is true. Politcal correctness is going to be the downfall of our society.
