Florida State Seminoles football held its second scrimmage Saturday night, holding one that more closely resembled live game action rather than situational drills like last week’s.
“Good scrimmage [last night], got some good work in,” Norvell said during a Zoom call with the media last night. “Really rolled it more as an in-game situation, so we were able to see a lot of different things.”
While he said that the defense was dominant and took some strides, the offense left a lot to be desired.
“When you’re in a game situation, [mistakes] are magnified. I want to be faster in our communication. I didn’t think we were communicating as fast as I’d like to see.”
I look at us as a unit. It’s about a group, today as a group I didn’t think we were good enough,” offense coordinator Kenny Dillingham said. “You have to be able to own the ball and sustain drives. That’s where we failed today.”
“We can’t be a team that gets affected by momentum. It’s alway about the next play.”
Defensive coordinator Adam Fuller and Norvell gave a lot of credit to the defensive front seven on their effort tonight, honing in on praise for transfer defensive tackle Fabian Lovett.
“We’ve got a talented group there and the depth is really starting to show itself,” Norvell said. “Robert Cooper is having a really nice camp. Fabien Lovett is going to be a really, really impressive player.. [Joshua] Kaindoh is having an incredible camp.”
