The Miami Herald All-You-Need-To-Know Florida State University Spring Football Primer


With the Florida State University Spring Game now less than 36 hours away it's time to roll out this year's Miami Herald All-You-Need-to-Know Spring Football Primer. 

Over the course of the past few weeks the FSU football team has been back to work as they prepare for the 2013 season. Last year the Seminoles finished 12-2, won the ACC and beat Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl. But the offseason brought a multitude of coaching changes with it and Florida State will also have to reload after losing a number of players to graduation and the NFL draft. 

Fortunately for Florida State fans, solid recruiting and good coaching connections seem to have the team headed in the right direction, though a lot is still undecided heading into Saturday's Spring finale.

From the Quarterback competition currently taking place to the adjustments being made under new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, there's been plenty going on in Seminoles camp. That's why I've got your primer. Below you can find everything you need to get you ready for the Florida State Garnet and Gold Game. Click around. Read. Become an expert on all things Florida State as the Seminoles prepare to put the finishing touches on the Spring.
