TALLAHASSEE -- Though Florida State always planned to open their 4 p.m. practice to the public as part of Fan Day, they hadn’t planned to house the practice in their new indoor facility.
But when thunderstorms forced the team to cancel activities in the stadium, Seminole fans were treated to an up close and personal look at FSU’s most recent investment.
With rain falling and clouds swirling overhead, Florida State fans crowded around the sidelines sheltered by the roof of the Dunlap Athletic Center and caught their first glimpse of the 2013 Seminoles.
“I told them to be careful on the sidelines I don’t want them to hit some little kids,” said coach Jimbo Fisher. “But I wanted the fans to see us, they’re here today and we were practicing, let’s put them on the sidelines and let them see. We can adjust for a day or two.”
Close to full speed
Sophomore corner Ronald Darby was held out of Spring camp while recovering for surgery on a sports hernia but is close to making a full return.
“Another week and a half you’ll see Darby back in the swing of it,” Fisher said. “He’s gotten better every day.”
