Seminoles learning the hard way


Miami Herald Writer

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher’s team might have had to learn its lesson the hard way, but it seems his constant refrains about practicing with purpose might have finally gotten through.

“The week before [last] we had a bad week of practice and we saw that we almost got beat by Boston College,” said redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston.

Florida State beat BC 48-34 two weeks ago but gave up 397 yards of offense — including 200 on the ground.

“[Last] week it was a great week, it was fun, energetic and we saw how we played,” said Winston.

FSU beat then-No. 25 Maryland 63-0 on Saturday and limited the Terrapins to just 33 yards rushing.

“So we’re going to be trying to come back with the same mentality and maybe go even harder [this week],” added Winston.

The lesson — if indeed learned — comes right on time. The sixth-ranked Seminoles are scheduled to travel to No. 3 Clemson on Oct. 18.
