Bobby Bowden expects big things from the FSU defense in 2013

Despite the hype surrounding redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston, former Florida State Seminoles head coach Bobby Bowden knows that the young quarterback his likely to make some mistakes his first year under center. However, Bowden believes the Florida State defense will be good enough to offset those errors, making the Seminoles a dangerous team in 2013.

Said Bowden:

I really have a good feeling about FSU. I think the defense is going to be good enough to help cover up mistakes the young quarterbacks might make.


[Defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt] has some big, tough (defensive) tackles. The hardest thing in the world to find are defensive tackles, and I think he has some. He has talent in the secondary and linebacker, too. If they can play the best they can play, they are going to be good enough (USA Today Sports).

FSU, ranked eleventh in the AP poll, will open the season against the Pittsburgh Panthers and quarterback Tom Savage on Monday, Sept. 2.
