Redshirt sophomore Clint Trickett took the first team reps in Manuels place. Trickett was 0-2 filling in for Manuel in two starts last season.
• The Seminoles practiced in shells Friday and focused on cleaning up some of the mistakes from the previous days scrimmage.
I told them I was a little disappointed [because] I thought we could have finished better, coach Jimbo Fisher said after the scrimmage. I dont think its something that cant be fixed, its not a major thing but something I saw.
Florida State will have a two-a-day Saturday.
