By Tom D'Angelo Palm Beach Post Staff Writer TALLAHASSEE During the aftermath of one of the most entertaining games at Doak Campbell Stadium, Florida State coach Bobby Bowden unsuccessfully searched for Georgia Tech quarterback Joe Hamilton. "I couldn't find him," Bowden said. "If I were at the goal line, I would have found him." The goal line is where Hamilton made his home Saturday, accounting for five touchdowns, four passing and one rushing, as the Yellow Jackets dominated the Seminoles' defense. After seeing his defense allow 501 yards, Bowden is thrilled he will never have to see Hamilton again. Bowden was able to joke about the defensive shortcomings because the Seminoles' offense overcame Hamilton in a 41-35 victory. When Bowden was asked Sunday what he said to defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews, he said he hasn't seen Andrews since the game ended, "and I probably won't all week." That is because Andrews, and this once feared defense, has a lot of work ahead if it has any hopes of playing on Jan. 4 in New Orleans. "I am not alarmed," Bowden said. "Mickey will get that secondary and get them working on their (man-to-man coverage) harder. I think everything is correctable." One reason Bowden was so forgiving is he does not expect his team to face an option offense as dangerous as Georgia Tech's the rest of the season. Hamilton atoned for three frustrating years against Florida State by completing all but three, i of his 25 passes. He was hitting wide open receivers and those., receivers were outrunning Florida State's defenders. Bowden may be able to brush off some of I the Yellow Jackets' success to the option, but Hamilton picked apart the FSU secondary even when he j dropped back and fired. , "The option can drive you-batty if they can throw the balLj too," Bowden said. "We're better j off with our defense if we can cut it loose." ; Georgia Tech's ability to answer the Seminoles for nearly three quarters forced Florida. State to use its imagination. Three different players lined up at quarterback (Chris Weinke, Dan-Kendra and Peter Warrick), and Warrick and Weinke literally played catch on one play, with Warrick throwing a long back-' ward pass to Weinke who then! tossed it back to Warrick. "I promised them I would not put on the earphones until the half," Bowden said, giving credit' to his offensive staff for the trick plays. Bowden then could not resist poking fun at Florida coach Steve Spurrier. "People want me to call plays, I get all them letters. They say why don't you call plays like Superman (pointing in the direction Gainesville). That's the offensive coordinator's job. At least it is here. I'm not as smart as some people." Noteworthy: Georgia Tech , lost its third-leading rusher Joe Burns for the rest of the season. Burns broke his right ankle in the ; Yellow Jackets' 41-35 loss to' Florida State.

Oklahoma 49, Indiana SL 0 THE GOOD: Former quarterback Dan Kendra surprised coach Bobby Bowden with his play at fullback. "I figured it would take him about five games to get a feel for that position, but he knew what he was doing." Bowden said. "I was worried about his blocking . . . that he'd knock himself out. He doesn't know how to block yet. He just butts them like a billy goat." THE BAD: Bowden has put a positive spin on one of the worst defensive performances in recent Seminoles history, calling Saturday a "wake-up call." INJURY UPDATE: No serious injuries were reported. Freshman Anquan Boldin of Pahokee did not play because of his sprained ankle but is expected to return this week. AFTER FURTHER REVIEW: Bowden was upset with the roughing-the-punter penalty early in the second half that gave Georgia Tech life at the start of the second quarter. He said he will reevaluate how the Seminoles defend the punt when the opposition is in the end zone. QUOTE: "I think it was big (for the ACC). People saw somebody other than Florida State. I am glad we didn't have to lose a game to show everybody it's a pretty good league," Bowden. NEXT GAME: Sept. 18 vs. N.C. State at Tallahassee.

He talked about how senior quarterback Doug Johnson has shown his maturity this season; he said UF'si receivers are the best he's seen' (that's saying something considering Ike Hilliard, Reidel Anthony and Jacquez Green played here); and he says Florida's senior-filled' offensive line has become one of the team's strengths. Fulmer even found a way-ta say something nice about Florida's suspect secondary. "You still see a lot of good football players out there on the field," he said. ; "They've just had some busts (mental mistakes)." Fulmer wasn't as agreeable,) however, when reminded that Florida has won 29 consecutive; games in The Swamp and that Tennessee hasn't won in Gaines- ville since 1971. - ; "We haven't played but six times, either. That's sort of a,; misnomer," he said. "But six is too many." , ,, GATORS From 1C eral years," Spurrier says, "to tell how big the game is." The second-ranked Vols (1-0) had lost six consecutive games to the Gators before last year's 20-17 overtime victory in Knoxville paved the way for Tennessee's undefeated season. With the exception of the victory against Florida State in the national title game, Fulmer says the victory against Florida was the biggest moment of his coaching career. "We finally got over that hump last year by making it a rivalry by finally winning one," Fulmer said. "We had gone down there and screwed it up or come up here and screwed it up when we had just as good a team as Florida." While Fulmer says this is his best team at UT, he also spent most of Sunday's conference call MTS Art 22 19 31-128 46-265 176 135 26-39-0 17-24-0 123 154 8-45 8-38 2-1 0-0 7-78 14-126 26:56 33:04 First quarter MIN Hamner 8 run (Nystrom kick), 5:51 .

Johnson had his second consecutive four-touchdown game; Taylor and Jackson have combined for seven of them. THE BAD: Once again, Florida's secondary struggled, allowing UCF . to throw for 379 yards. UF has just one interception in 93 at--tempts despite being credited with 10 deflections against UCF. INJURY REPORT: Reserve defensive tackle Chris Reynolds tore his anterior cruciate ligament and will be out for the season. Center Zac Zedalis, who sat out the UCF game with a twisted knee, is expected to be ready for Tennessee. QUOTE: "Conversation is something that's a big part of all sports now," Florida coach Steve Spurrier said. "Everybody likes to talk -about the game. Players talk, coaches talk. But when the ball-games start, I don't think the talking matters at all." NEXT GAME: The Gators host Tennessee at 8 p.m. with the winner favored to win the SEC title.
