TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Another season of high expectations and high excitement gets started Sunday for the 2012 Florida State football team when players officially report for fall camp.
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher will then get things going Monday at 12:30 p.m. when he holds his preseason camp press conference inside the Moore Athletic Center.
For those fans interested in hearing Fisher’s opening comments and thoughts on the 2012 season, Seminoles.com for the first time will be offering a free, live stream of the press conference through YouTube. To access Florida State’s official YouTube page, visit YouTube.com/FLStateSeminoles. The live stream will begin moments before Fisher steps to the podium.
The Seminoles will then practice for the first time this season Monday at 4:55 p.m. in helmets and shorts, followed by three more days of that same routine. Following a day off Friday, the ‘Noles then return to practice Saturday for what is both the first day in full pads and the first two-a-day of fall camp.
FSU will then participate in its annual Media Day at Doak Campbell Stadium Sunday, Aug. 12 before making the short trek across campus to the Donald L. Tucker Center for Fan Day starting at noon.

The rest of Florida State’s practice schedule includes its weekly routines along with closed-to-the-public scrimmages tentatively scheduled for Aug. 15 and Aug. 23. As of now, the ‘Noles are slated to conclude fall camp Aug. 25 — a day after the annual Kickoff Luncheon at the Tucker Center.
