Seminoles Return to Practice Field
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The No. 4 ranked Florida State Seminoles (3-0) returned to practice this afternoon after taking Monday off. The team watched film from the Clemson game and then practiced for 12 periods in shorts.
"We will work on fundamentals this week," said head coach Bobby Bowden. "We are trying to correct some of our mistakes. There were so many missed assignments in Saturday's game. We were 1-for-12 on third down conversions and our first three missed conversions were on missed assignments."
Coach Bowden praised the play of senior defensive end Andre Wadsworth, who recorded three sacks in the Clemson game and now has six on the season, following practice.
"I wasn't sure at first if Andre would be agile enough to move from noseguard to defensive end," said Bowden. "He has definitely proven that he has the agility. He has the speed and is about 20 pounds heavier than Peter Boulware."
The team will continue preparation for Miami with practice tomorrow afternoon.
There were no new injuries to report after today's session. Tailback Dee Feaster (bruised ribs) and linebacker Daryl Bush (ankle) saw limited action. Defensive end Greg Spires is expected to return to the FSU lineup for the Miami game as he continues rehabilitation.
