Florida State has responded well following losses this year. After falling to Wake Forest, FSU won four straight games. After a loss to Georgia Tech the team bounced back to beat Clemson. This week the Seminoles are trying to bounce back from the BC game as they head into a very difficult environment at Byrd Stadium. The Terrapins have been perfect at home this year winning six games at College Park. If Florida State can break that streak, Tony Carter is the man designated to bring home a piece of turf from the third sod game of the season.


  • Florida State practiced for 21 periods in uppers. The first 17 were spent working versus scout teams.
  • In pass rush David Spurlock had a nice drill and was joined by Rodney Hudson with a couple of wins. Rhonne Sanderson, Zebrie Sanders and Andrew Datko also had wins. Everette Brown got past his blocker three times and Markus White did it twice. Other players with a win included Justin Mincey, Budd Thacker, Paul Griffin, Kendrick Stewart and Kevin McNeil.
  • Drew Weatherford and D’Vontrey Richardson completed a pass each in 7-on-7. Christian Ponder connected with Corey Surrency, Josh Dobbie and Antone Smith.
  • When the drill moved into the red zone Ponder kept a hot hand finding Greg Carr, Ja’Baris Little and Surrency again. Richardson hooked-up with Cameron Wade and Jarmon Fortson. Tony Carter got a pass break-up and Jamie Robinson almost picked off a pass in the end zone.
  • Practice ended with 11-on-11. Ponder avoided two sacks and turned in nice, long runs on scrambles. He also found Dobbie, Smith and Surrency. Richardson hit Surrency and went deep to Bert Reed. The defense made a lot of plays. White had a sack and a pressure, Brown had a pressure as did Moffett. Patrick Robinson had a tackle for loss.

Weather forecasts predict low 30’s and clear skies in Maryland Saturday night and if Tuesday was any indicator Florida State will be ready. The Seminoles practiced for 22 periods in uppers in mid-40 degree weather Tuesday night in Tallahassee.

Benjamin Lampkin and Kendrick Stewart each had two sacks while Justin Mincey, Markus White, Budd Thacker and Moses McCray all got to the QB. On the other side it was the veterans who led the way as Ryan McMahon and Rodney Hudson both had three wins. A.J. Ganguzza picked up two wins while Zebrie Sanders, David Spurlock, Rhonne Sanderson and Brandon Davis had wins.
  • In skeleton, Korey Mangum had two pass break-ups. For the offense Drew Weatherford completed passes to Jarmon Fortson, Bert Reed, Louis Givens and Greg Carr. Christian Ponder found Jermaine Thomas twice, Rod Owens once and Taiwan Easterling on a deep TD pass.

Mondays are always better when you are looking back at the mistakes made during a win. Unfortunately that was not the case this Monday night. Florida State spent 12 periods going over this past Saturday’s loss to the Eagles. The Seminoles won’t spend much time focusing on last weekend with a trip versus a ranked Terp team looming. Especially since FSU has lost its last two times it has traveled to Maryland’s Byrd Stadium.
