FSU's QB Battle Still Murky After Scrimmage

Florida State's starting quarterback battle hasn't gotten any clearer after the first scrimmage.

Florida State’s well publicized quarterback battle between Sean Maguire and Everett Golson didn’t get any clearer after Friday’s scrimmage. Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher wasn’t ready to make a definitive comment on either quarterback at this point in the camp.

“[They looked] Okay,” Fisher said. “I’ll evaluate the film and wait and see. Had good and bad, to me from standing behind. But we’ll wait and see to see what they see exactly, and evaluate the film.”

Fisher wouldn’t share whether or not a quarterback had separated himself from the other, but did say that he was happy with where they both are.

“We’re right where we want to be,” Fisher said. “Both got a lot of work to do, but are doing a lot of good things, too.”

Fisher knows what he has with Maguire since he’s been a part of the team for over three years now, but he’s still getting used to what Golson brings to the table. He’s been pleased with how well he has grasped the playbook, but says that he needs to transfer it to the field now.

“You’ve got to take it to the field. You’ve got to take it to the field and then all these little things happen that you can’t coach. That 10-15 percent of grey area, and then see how they react to that. He’s had his good and bad, which is what I expected.”

Fisher did go on to say that the quarterbacks were splitting reps with the first team and that both teams led scoring drives during the scrimmage.
