Football:

The team got a rude but hilarious wake up call yesterday:


And as Tim Linafelt writes, the team set the tone yesterday with the timeless Oklahoma Drill:

And they did it to the equally timeless Knuck If You Buck.

That’s important because today will be the first day the team will wear full pads:

“Always looking forward to full pads,” Taggart said, his voice raising a couple ticks. “That’s when, these questions y’all ask, y’all will get some good answers after that.”

Freshman offensive lineman Dontae Lucas also had some time with the 1s, and Linafelt also wrote about offensive tackle Jauan Williams and the multiplicity of the defense. All eyes are on the offensive line, as FSU will go as they go this year. Confidence will be key.

With Tamorrion Terry out, the young receivers have been stepping up.

Head coach Willie Taggart also spoke after practice about the first few days of camp.
