TALLAHASSEE -- With a trip to play No. 3 Clemson in the hostile confines of Death Valley on the horizon, No. 5 Florida State spent Tuesday’s practice pumping in crowd noise at deafening decibels to prepare for the noisy atmosphere on Saturday.
“Usually [the extra noise] makes you practice better, because guys have got to focus more, they have to concentrate more,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “Believe it or not your practices usually become better.”
Added former Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas standout Rashad Greene: “It’s just a better way for us to focus in and communicate with each other. It’s a bit annoying but the purpose of it is very good. We’re able to communicate and get our signals and just lock in a lot more than what we have been the past couple weeks.”
“But the way we’ve been practicing hasn’t changed at all.”
