A federal judge will not dismiss a Title IX lawsuit filed against Florida State University by the woman who accused Jameis Winston of rape.U.S. District Court Judge Mark E. Walker denied a motion filed by FSU in March to throw out Erica Kinsman's lawsuit against the school. Kinsman, a Zephyrhills native, has alleged that FSU failed to follow the gender-equity law by showing deliberate indifference after she accused Winston of rape in December 2012. She sued FSU in January.FSU has denied wrongdoing, but Walker ruled that Kinsman's complaint has enough merit to go to a jury trial in Tallahassee next July.Wednesday's ruling has no bearing on Kinsman's civil lawsuit against Winston, now the Bucs' starting quarterback. UF: Backfield c larityGAINESVILLE — With running back Matt Jones now in the NFL, Kelvin Taylor prepared in the offseason as if this fall would be his chance to star in the Gators' backfield.Taylor's opportunity became even clearer this week when Florida announced Adam Lane was transferring — to Eastern Kentucky, the Lakeland Ledger reported."I felt like it's been time for me," said Taylor, who has rushed for 1,073 yards in 22 career games. "Now it's perfect timing."UF coaches have said they'd like to have at least three backs share carries, so freshmen Jordan Cronkite and Jordan Scarlett will likely find themselves in the rotation quickly. Taylor said both players have progressed well so far in fall camp."I'm telling you, both of those guys are going to be really good …" Taylor said. "They're going to have a really nice backfield for years to come." USF: Good, not great TAMPA — In the wake of a spirited Tuesday night practice that USF coach Willie Taggart called the best of preseason camp, the Bulls struggled to hold onto receptions and interceptions in a two-hour workout Wednesday afternoon.Taggart called the full-pad session "good" but not great. Extensive 11-on-11 periods were high on spread-option runs and underneath check-down passes to backs, mostly by design. The handful of downfield throws provided mixed results.In a clear blown coverage, sophomore Quinton Flowers overshot isolated redshirt freshman Tyre McCants on a would-be 30-yard TD pass over the middle. Even the defense, which has a stated goal of five takeaways per practice, failed to meet its requirement."There were too many dropped balls today, just a lack of focus and putting the ball on the ground," Taggart said. "And when I say dropped balls, both sides."I thought the effort was there and that was great to see. There hasn't been any lack of effort throughout training camp but I think that's just our guys understanding and learning how to practice now." MORE OPEN PRACTICES: The Bulls' series of open practices, originally set to conclude Wednesday, will extend to Saturday, the school announced. Today's practice at the Morsani Complex begins at 6:30 p.m., with Friday's starting at 2 p.m. and Saturday's at 9:40 a.m. The Saturday workout should be scrimmage-heavy.Around the nation BYU: Sophomore tight end Colby Jorgensen is recovering from surgery for a fracture and dislocation in his neck and will miss the season.
