The luxury of having a throw-away game during the first week of the season is that you get to play through most of your options at quarterback. The Florida State Seminoles have that luxury when they host Texas State to open the season.
Right now, head coach Jimbo Fisher is unsure of who will be his starting quarterback for the 2015 season. According to ESPN’s Joe Schad, Fisher may even look towards playing multiple quarterbacks in the season opener.
The Seminoles are without two-year starter Jameis Winston who was drafted number one overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2015 NFL Draft back in May. Now, the Seminoles are left with few options at quarterback.
Winston was suspended for the Clemson game last season due to off-field actions. Back-up quarterback Sean Maguire came in the game and led his team to an exciting, albeit close victory over the Tigers in overtime.
It was suspected that Maguire would take over the starting role, but that has not been confirmed. The Seminoles have two true freshman quarterbacks in JJ Cosentino and De’Andre Johnson, a senior in Deondre Francois, and Maguire, who is a junior.
Fisher certainly has a lot of options to work with this season. Good thing he still has some time to see how they all work out.
Who do you think should be the starting quarterback? Should Maguire get the spot due to his experience? Let us know in the comments below!
