Players were available for interviews yesterday, and they said some interesting things. Wide receiver Tre’Shaun Harrison talked about accountability groups:

Defensive tackle Robert Cooper is losing some weight:

Cooper also let slip that Coach Haggins has begun coaching the entire defensive line and not just defensive tackles. Defensive ends coach Mark Snyder may be moving to special teams, where he coached for three seasons at Michigan State.
Also, Jaiden Woodbey has changed his name:

FSU went one-on-one with new offensive coordinator Kendall Briles. Briles was asked about Willie Taggart, his offensive system and how it might mesh with Taggart’s, and the wealth of skill position talent he has inherited at FSU.
Randy Clements, the former Houston offensive line coach who is likely following Briles to Tallahassee, was reportedly spotted on campus yesterday.
