FSU Practice Notebook: Seminoles Still Searching for Rhythym


Florida State finished its Tuesday practice a few minutes ago and though Jimbo Fisher said he was satisfied with his team's progress, he also admitted that the Seminoles are still getting into the flow of things early on this season.

“Not yet. I mean you’re starting to right now, but not yet,” said Fisher. “You want to get it and play a game and then get the next one, we’ve got to get going, we’ve got to get going.”

Florida State last played on Monday, September 2nd when they beat Pittsburgh 41-13. By next Saturday they will have been off for 12 straight days.

"Been almost two weeks again,” said Fisher. “So we've got to get ourselves in that game mode."

Beyond that, there wasn't a ton to report from Tuesday afternoon's practice, here are the highlights:

##- A little more on how Tuesday afternoon went:

“We had some good effort for the most part (today)." Fisher said. "We got some things done and accomplished for our game plan as we go. The players are working very solidly. It’s been almost two weeks, so we have to get ourselves in game mode, get going good and get flying around again.”

##- Nevada runs a no-huddle, up-tempo style of offense that has inspired the ire of many head coaches around the country. Among those critical of the style are Jimbo Fisher's former boss, Nick Saban. Fisher, however, does not object to the tactic:

“It’s the nature of ball today. That’s what everybody is doing. That’s football today. Everybody knows how to play it. You have to play it, and you have to play it consistently. It will be a great challenge. You have to have (depth) all the way across the board, because they can get some snaps in. The good thing is if you stop them, then they aren’t on the field very long. That’s a lot easier said than done.”

##- Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo is day-to-day after suffering a sprained knee in the Wolf Pack’s win over UC Davis. 

“We are preparing as if he is playing,” Fisher said after practice. “That guy has torched a lot of good people. He is going to be a test no matter who he is going against. The guy is a very good player – a heckuva player.”
