Special Teams Notes: A new Block Party begins

Special teams coordinator Eddie Gran is widely regarded as one of the best in the business, which is a good thing, considering Florida State's long-standing reputation as one of the most dangerous programs in the nation when it comes to blocking kicks. Throughout Bobby Bowden's tenure (1976-2009) the Seminoles combined for 128 blocked punts and kicks, often coming at the most opportune time. Though the numbers have slowed in recent seasons, FSU still remains one of the most productive nationally.
