After taking their licks, the Seminoles are back
" Chris Rix had his rough moments last year, but because they went ahead and played him, Bobby Bowden is going to have a very good quarterback for three years.... Their offensive line is as good as any. Center Antoine Mirambeau and guard Montrae Holland have excellent lateral quickness and balance, and they handle twist moves very well.... The defensive line's lack of a pass rush last year surprised me. They've always had that good individual rusher. They haven't been a big blitz team because they haven't had to be. I'm going to guess that they will generate a pass rush with team pressure when necessary. . . . Linebackers Michael Boulware and Kendyll Pope can move. That's been the hallmark of their great teams: guys who can chase people down."
