TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Willie Taggart’s first practice at Florida State on Wednesday definitely had a different tone compared to his predecessor.

It also began a lot earlier.

The practice fields adjacent to Doak Campbell Stadium were abuzz with the sounds of AC/DC, Wiz Khalifa and Blake Shelton during the morning workouts instead of assistants yelling during the middle of the afternoon. The first practice was also at a quicker pace, with five-minute instruction periods instead of the 10-minute periods that were common under Jimbo Fisher.

Taggart wants to see the Seminoles play fast and not worry about making mistakes.
