Florida State coach Mike Norvell was not happy after FSU’s practice on Wednesday morning.

Norvell called the practice “average” and said the intensity from his players wasn’t good enough.

“I thought today was just an average practice,” Norvell told reporters on Wednesday. “I think it was the first average practice we’ve had since we started up. It wasn’t good enough in regards to the intensity of what it needs to be. Ultimately, it’s a choice we have to make of what we want to be.

“We’ll see how they respond tomorrow. But today, I don’t think that was a good enough work day for what we needed to accomplish and what needed to be done.”

The comments from Norvell come just days after Florida State’s 24-23 win over LSU in New Orleans. As it turns out, the timing may have something to do with it.

Florida State travels to Louisville in Week 3 — a place where the Seminoles got blown out 48-16 in 2020 in their last trip to play the Cardinals. That loss came immediately after Florida State’s upset win over No. 5 North Carolina.

“It’s actually harder when the good things happen,” Norvell added. “The last time we took this trip to where we’re going, we had just beaten a team that was highly rated and all that … and we went and got embarrassed. We didn’t respond very well to success.

“Today you had an opportunity to go out and get better. And I think there was a lot of instances today where we were OK being where we were. And that’s unacceptable.”

Florida State is off in Week 2 but will face Louisville on Friday, Sept. 16.
