    Noles Hold First Practice In Orlando

    FSU Sports Information Excerpts:

    Florida State football opened practice for the 2008 Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando Monday at McCracken Field in the shadow of the Citrus Bowl. The Seminoles practiced for 12 periods without pads working against the Wisconsin scout teams. The team will return to practice Tuesday morning as they continue to prepare for Saturday’s game against the Badgers.

    Head Coach Bobby Bowden:

    On what he has seen from Wisconsin:

    “I have looked at a lot of them (film on Wisconsin). They are a physical football team, very big, different from us. We are spread out more, more wide open type. They are more of a pound you football team, but they spread out a little too. They can throw the ball good too. We have had trouble with their kind of a football team, a team that runs the ball and can keep the ball. We have a hard time trying to get it away from them because of their size.”

    On his bowl experience and how they differ from one year to the next:

    “They are very much the same. It’s nice to play in different places. There have been times that we have played in the Orange Bowl a couple times in a row and also this bowl a couple times in a row. I think it’s nice; of course you would like to get to the BCS bowl game if you could, but it’s nice to get to different towns. It’s good to get back to Orlando. The first bowl game that I played in when I got to Florida State was the old Tangerine Bowl.”
