The veteran running back has a lot of respect for the Crimson Tide defense.

With a single-digit days now separating us from Florida State’s illustrious opener with Alabama, it’s reasonable to admit that this game being so close may have snuck up on some fans.

In fact, even FSU running back Jacques Patrick admitted that he is a bit surprised by how soon the game is.

“I was just talking to one of the coaches about how this game is next week. It’s been crazy how fast it came,” Patrick said after Thursday’s practice.

Patrick clearly has a lot of respect for Alabama’s defense, quickly listing off a list of Tide players who have stood out to him in film review/

Still, this doesn’t change the fact that Patrick feels confident about himself and his team headed into the highly-touted matchup.

Said Patrick: “I feel like we are very prepared and we are going to go out there and do what we have to do.”

Jacques Patrick reflects back on Florida State Seminoles Football's fall camp, looks ahead to the matchup with Alabama.
