This is always one of my favorite points of the football season. More than half the season is gone and the rivalry games start to pop up in the schedule. This week Florida State will be hosting the Miami Hurricanes at Doak Campbell Stadium. Both teams are ranked in the top 10, the hurricane warning flags are flying outside the practice fields by the sod cemetery, college gameday is currently being set up on Langford Green in front of the unconquered statue, and it's an 8 PM prime time game on ABC. It's everything we love about college football.
Dustin Tackett and I we're both out at the practice fields today, taking in as much as we could as the Seminoles began their preparation for The Hurricanes.
James Wilder Jr. was out there running all the drills and fully dressed out with a visor affixed to his helmet, which is the norm for players who have recently had a concussion.
Giorgio Newberry was not dressed out for practice and was spending his time on the stationary bike.
Matthew Thomas and Tyler Hunter were on the sideline taking in the practice as well, both are out with injuries for the season.
Roberto Aguayo did not miss a kick during the field goal drills the team runs in the beginning of practice. I'm not sure I have seen him miss one yet this season, and that's just in practice.
Kelvin Benjamin was fully dressed out and participating in all the wide receiver drills. Jimbo mentioned that after the NC State game some x-rays were taken of his hand but they came up negative. His hand was not wrapped up in anything.
Marquez White is still taking reps with the Wide Receivers despite wearing the white defensive jersey. White got some snaps in at DB against NC State and had a few nice tackles in the game.
That's it for today, we'll have some more updates for you tomorrow before and after practice.
