Seminoles Prepare to Battle the Gators
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The No. 1 Florida State Seminoles began their week of preparation for the No. 10 Florida Gators with an hour of practice on tonight.
The squad started concentrating on the Florida game plan and the kicking game.
"It was a typical Monday practice," said head coach Bobby Bowden. "Everybody was able to practice except Marvin Minnis. Samari Rolle's not at full speed, but if he keeps from reinjuring the ankle this week, he'll be at full speed on Saturday."
"We went through the very same routine," commented Bowden. "It's late in the season. We've done everything. All we've got to do is maintain what we've got."
INJURY REPORT: Bryne Malone, Damon Carroll and Stacy Davis have the flu. Marvin Minnis was held out of practice.
