FSU Sports Information Excerpts:
With the annual spring game just 24 hours away, the Seminole coaches decided to have a light practice on Friday. The team practiced for 20 periods in shorts and helmets as they worked mainly on situations. This year's Garnet and Gold Game will not signal the end of spring practice as the squad will have three more chances to work out next week.
Practice ended up in tight zone where the offense did not get into the endzone on six tries. The most success the offense had was on the first play from the ten where Ponder hit Fortson for nine to the one. There was an incompletion from the eight and then Mangum broke up a pass in the endzone from the six. The second team defense closed the drill on a high note. Maurice Harris sacked Ponder on the first play then Mincey had back-to-back sacks from the eight and the six.
Head Coach Bobby Bowden
"Today we went 20 segments - that's shorter than we normally go and we went with jut the helmets and we tried to do a lot of polishing for tomorrow. We kind of walked through our kicking game and then just, again what we did was real good; we got a lot more out of it that I thought we would. That leaves us with three day s of practice next week - we'll go Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. Today was again just polishing for the scrimmage.
"The quarterback did a good job today. Making some darn good decisions and making some goods throws. There were some good catches out there. The secondary is beginning to get a little bit better and that is very important because they have struggled this spring."
