Another Chance

Florida State is continuing preparations for the Jan. 1 Gator Bowl against West Virginia. The Seminoles have one final chance to end the season on a positive note after failing to reach their goal of playing for the national title for the first time since 2000.

Florida State senior receiver Dominic Robinson knows his collegiate career is quickly coming to a close.

"I try not to think about it, but it is brought up so much," Robinson said.

"Not just people around here, but friends and people around me. I am excited, but kind of sad. I love playing, I love the game, and I just love this whole atmosphere. I am going to miss it a lot, but things change and time had ran its course so it is time to move on to the next thing."

For returning players, however, the next thing means winning the Jan. 1 Gator Bowl against West Virginia.

The game gives FSU an opportunity to end its season on a positive note as well as give the program needed momentum heading into the offseason.

FSU has been tabbed a double-digit favorite over the Mountaineers.

"Most of the film that we have been watching, you see them run the ball well," cornerback Antonio Cromartie said.

"They average over 250 yards a game. We have to come in there and concentrate on the run. But, coach said that they might come out and throw the ball. (Rasheed) Marshall is a good quarterback he ran a 4.36 in the 40 and we are going to try and contain him just like all the other running quarterbacks that we played against."
