Golden talks Flowers, Winston, and more

Read on to see what coach Al Golden is saying about the latest with Ereck Flowers, how the team is preparing for Jameis Winston, and much more.

On the scout team QB this week:
Malik Rosier is and we are wearing him out. He could be the MVP of the week. He’s doing a great job. He’s athletic and can throw it. We appreciate what he’s doing. There’s only one Heisman Trophy winner a year though but we are getting what we need from him.

On Raphael Kirby saying the team is practicing better:
We are practicing better. We have grown up a lot. We are getting better and improving. The challenge is greater this week so we have to keep getting better this week.

On Trevor Darling:
He’s doing good. Ereck had a better day today. He’s getting closer. Trevor is working both guard and tackle. If Ereck can go we’ll have more depth.

On Flowers’ progress:
Just duration and reps. He did more today than he did the previous two. Every day is a step and hopefully he wont have any swelling. He’s getting great care and is doing what he needs to do.

On moving Jon Feliciano back inside if Flowers plays:
Those are all options. Jon is practicing three spots. Trevor is practicing two, Nick is practicing two. We will have more options for sure.

On recruiting importance of this game:
I say it every year. Winning the game is great and it helps but recruiting is not seasonal any more. Its year round. Relationships start two, three years ago. It has big implications but we’ve identified who we want and so have they. There may be some fence sitters.

On how many recruits are expected there Saturday:
I don’t but it’ll be a big number.

On FSU kick returners:
We have to get good kicks. We cant have line drives. They will test us. They have great returners and they block like crazy so we’ve been working on it.

On FSU dropping in the rankings:
I didn’t even know they dropped. They haven’t lost in a few seasons so I cant imagine there’s a better team let alone a couple in the entire country.
