During the first press conference of the fall last week, FSU football announced that the football team would be going off-campus for practice. At the time, they couldn’t say where because of NCAA rules. Later, after a multi-year deal was agreed upon, the Seminoles announced that they were off to IMG for practice this week.

Our Bud Elliott is there at IMG, and has a full practice report for you here.

Hear head coach Willie Taggart and quarterback James Blackman talk during practice on Monday.

IMG graduates Ricky Aguayo and Tre’ McKitty also spoke to the press about how the academy helped them to reach the point that they’re at now.

What comes to mind when you think of Peter Warrick? Electrifying? Playmaker? How about quarterback? Who remembers when Warrick had a brief, but successful run throwing the football? His legendary pass to Ron Dugan in 1998 made it as No. 21 on our countdown of the top-100 plays in Florida State football history.
