Tallahassee, FL---Monday was the first official day of fall practice for some of the state's big time college teams, including the team that hoisted the BCS trophy back in January!
Jimbo Fisher leading his Seminoles on to the field today as they set out on a new season. Jimbo pointing out in recent weeks the Seminoles aren't defending champs, they're not defending anything. This, he says is a new team, new year, and it's up to this team to blaze it's own path.
What's not new about this team, Jameis Winston will guide the offense. He is the reigning Heisman winner, and it all starts with him.
Fisher talked about the start of practice just before he went out to the field Monday, expressing serious optimism about how things are going heading into fall.
"I'm excited for the season to start," Fisher said "very excited for our team and seeing this team emerge and develop its own personality and identity. I've liked what's going on so far as far as over the spring and summer, and very happy, not with just the results, but with the attitude and work ethic and a lot of the intangibles. I've been around a lot of teams that have gotten results during the summers, but you always worry about the work ethic. We haven't had that."
The Seminoles using both the outdoor field and the indoor facility Monday. Florida State working towards a date with Oklahoma State in their opener in Dallas, set for August 30th.
