Florida State ran away with a victory in Pittsburgh Monday night, but the Seminoles are thin at running back depth entering week two. Fortunately for the Seminoles, they have an athlete willing to make a switch. Defensive back Karlos Williams has moved to running back, Jimbo Fisher announced Thursday, according to

Florida State running back James Wilder left Monday’s road ACC game early with a shoulder injury and he is currently listed as day-to-day for the Seminoles. The move gives Williams a chance to find a role on Florida State as well. A former five-star recruit at safety, Williams struggled at times against Pittsburgh Monday night and finally gave in to a position change. Williams will hope to have more of an impact in Florida State’s running game, helping out a group that also includes Devonta Freeman, who rushed for 52 yards in Monday night’s win. Freeman and Wilder were listed s co-starters for Florida State in the season opener.

Florida State is off this week and returns to the field at home next week when Nevada comes to Tallahassee.

    This kid is filthy at kickoffs, I think he’ll have instant success and gives Famous Jamies yet another weapon to play with.

    This could be a special season for FSU

    It will be another special season in which FSU loses to a team they should beat by 30 points.

    canetic …Touche and until FSU wins the NC they will always have that stigma hanging over their heads. But that’s true for every team each year except one, the eventual national champion. So just don’t lose to the NCSU’s, or Wake’s…

    Yet they’ll still kick the ever living crap out of Miami, leaving the filthy residents of Hialeah and the FIU student body in tears yet again.
