Seminoles Return to Practice Field

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The No. 4 ranked Florida State Seminoles (3-0)
returned to practice this afternoon after taking Monday off. The team
watched film from the Clemson game and then practiced for 12 periods in
shorts.

“We will work on fundamentals this week,” said head coach Bobby Bowden.
“We are trying to correct some of our mistakes. There were so many missed
assignments in Saturday’s game. We were 1-for-12 on third down conversions
and our first three missed conversions were on missed assignments.”

Coach Bowden praised the play of senior defensive end Andre Wadsworth,
who recorded three sacks in the Clemson game and now has six on the season,
following practice.

“I wasn’t sure at first if Andre would be agile enough to move from
noseguard to defensive end,” said Bowden. “He has definitely proven that
he has the agility. He has the speed and is about 20 pounds heavier than
Peter Boulware.”

The team will continue preparation for Miami with practice tomorrow afternoon.

There were no new injuries to report after today’s session. Tailback Dee
Feaster (bruised ribs) and linebacker Daryl Bush (ankle) saw limited
action. Defensive end Greg Spires is expected to return to the FSU lineup
for the Miami game as he continues rehabilitation.
