TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State football team continued preparations for Saturday’s Garnet and Gold game with a split 22-period practice in full pads on Tuesday. The ‘Noles began with eight periods of individual work on the practice fields before moving to Doak Campbell Stadium for team drills.
“We went out and had 50 minutes of fundamentals and 50 minutes of scrimmage,” said defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews. “Today was a good day. Offense had some good plays and defense had some good plays. We’ve just got to get more consistent to be where we want to be. It was the last scrimmage before the Garnet and Gold game. We’re going to split the teams this year and try to balance them out a little more than we have before, rather than one’s vs. one’s and two’s vs. two’s. The winners will get steak and lobster and the losers will get beans and weenies, so that should make it more interesting.”
Big plays of the day included sacks by Jamal Reynolds and Randy Wilkins and a multitude of big runs by Jeff Chaney. Clevan Thomas had the biggest hit of the day with a pass break up on Robert Morgan. Offense went three for eight on goal line drills.
The Seminoles will return to spring practice on Friday afternoon.
