Bjoern has good start at Colts camp

3

Bjoern Werner had himself a very nice day as well. Seeing increased snaps because of Robert Mathis's impending suspension, Werner had a couple of passes batted at the line of scrimmage that ended in two pick-sixes for the defense. On the first, Werner batted Luck's pass at the line and then picked it off before lateraling to D'Qwell Jackson for the score. On the other, he batted a Matt Hasslebeck pass to Cory Redding, who took it to the end zone to score. Interestingly, it seemed like Werner was often playing with his hand in the ground at essentially a defensive end position. I wonder if that's why Werner showed such good burst, pass deflecting skills, and good pass rush overall? Either way, Werner had a good day and whatever the Colts were doing with Werner today looked like it was working - something to keep watching.

Rick Trickett on cross-training players

50

And the level of their instruction matches their intelligence, especially if they have a coach like Trickett. He makes players flip positions for a few days to rejuvenate them. "Those tackles do not like going back in to guard, I can promise you that," Trickett says. "They think they have their stuff down. They go inside and they say, ‘Stuff happens a lot faster.’ Well, no s—. Try playing center. They like it outside. Of course they do. Any moron can play tackle. It’s all man on man out there. How complicated is that?"

Rick Trickett on why he cross-trains his offensive linemen. It helps with their understanding.

Oklahoma State DC Glenn Spencer on Jameis Winston

Spencer already is stressed about dealing with Winston. "That's no fun when you look at a ton of film all summer and you're not getting any answers," Spencer said Wednesday. Spencer said Winston has Andrew Luck's size, Robert Griffin III's ability to escape the rush and Colt McCoy's leadership skills. "He has all the talent in the world," Spencer said. "He's so big. He doesn't get shook. He can take a hit in the backfield. He's not running around trying to avoid. He doesn't make bad decisions."

"I know some of you won state championships," he said. "I've been a part of a couple great teams, I think the best team that's ever played the game in '08. That was animal instincts taking over on the field. They protected each other."

Good for a few laughs.

Media respects Florida State's schedule

This year's 'Noles, on the other hand, will almost certainly make the playoff field as a 12-1 ACC champion, especially given the caliber of opponents on their schedule (Oklahoma State, Notre Dame, Clemson, Louisville, Miami and Florida).

Seminole tribe not behind new FSU logo?

"The changes are very minor and the primary thing people will see is consistency in the garnet," Florida State vice president for university relations Liz Maryanski said. "If you go into a sports store and look across the store, you’ll see as many shades of garnet as there are T-shirts, and we’re trying to get consistency in our colors." "The school was behind the changes and they submitted it to the Tribe for approval," Bitner said. "It’s the relationship they have and the respect [Florida State] has for the Tribe that they wanted to reach out to the Tribe."

This is contrary to the report from Garnet and Great.
