FSU's offense is sitting pretty for 2016

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has a choice to make at quarterback between senior Sean Maguire, redshirt freshman Deondre Francois and true freshman Malik Henry. He was asked again during ACC spring meetings whether he would defer to the veteran to open the season. "I defer to the guy who gets us up and down the field the best and does what he has to do to win the game," Fisher said. "If I said that, Jameis wouldn't have played." Jameis Winston won the starting job in 2013 as a redshirt freshman.
