No. 21 FSU Wraps-Up Practice For Wake And ESPN Thursday Night

Oct. 9, 2007

Tallahassee, Fla.It was a short week of preparation for both No. 21 Florida State and Wake Forest but that won’t stop the showdown Thursday night on ESPN. The Seminoles wrapped up their preparations on Tuesday for the ACC Atlantic Division clash and will board a plane tomorrow for Winston-Salem, NC. The team practiced for 20 periods in uppers and spent a good deal of the practice working versus scout teams. The full squad worked against each other in 11-on-11 but other than those final three periods, the two units rarely practiced against each another except for a couple periods of pass rush and skel.



DL Andre Fluellen:

On the team chemistry before the Wake Forest game:

“I feel we are just together more then anything. Everyone kind of sees the goals, sees the objectives and sees that we can actually do it and get the job done. Everybody’s together, everybody’s on the same page and we’re just working hard.”


On last year’s defeat to Wake Forest:

“Never would I thought that by any team we would be beat 30-0. They came out there and did their thing against us, they played hard, we didn’t do our job. I would never imagine Florida State getting beat by anybody shut out at home by 30. I would never think that would happen.”


On the Wake Forest team:

“They’re probably better, if not as good as last year. They are still a dangerous team. They still have a lot of weapons. We have to stay disciplined. They have three really good running backs. One person misses a tackle with an offense like that, they can hit one for 60, 70 yards, you can never know. One thing we gotta do is be sure tacklers and be disciplined and stay in our gap. It’s just a lot you have to look for, you have to play with your eyes a lot and you have to be in your right position a lot of times. Like with other times you can kind of be lenient with your positions but with them you have to be in your spot.”


WR Greg Carr:

On the short week hurting:
“It hasn’t really because you still go out there and do what you are capable of doing. We just have to do more focusing and things like that and we know that. It really hasn’t had as a big affect on us because we still have to go there execute. Just a quick week so it just requires more focus.”


On the revenge factor:

“It’s a little extra incentive, regardless of what happened last year this is still our next game and that is what we are focusing on. Revenge isn’t the thing that is really pushing us. It’s just more the fact that this is our next game and we want to go out there and play football like we’re capable of playing football. But at the same time we got it in the back of our minds what happened last year. You still have to go out there and play football. Anytime you have a chance to go out there that’s enough incentive in itself.”
