Jimbo Fisher has no timetable for selecting Florida St. QB

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has a quarterback competition for the third time in four years. But as the Seminoles began practice on Tuesday, he isn’t in a rush to select a starter. Three years ago, Fisher announced Jameis Winston won the job 10 days before the opener. Last year, he cut it a little closer, waiting until the Monday before the opener in deciding on Everett Golson.

As Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher prepares for Saturday’s game against No. 10 Florida, he sees a mirror image of his own squad. “It’s funny how that evolves. That wasn’t planned, I promise you, by either one of us,” Fisher said on Monday. “One of the key roles as a coach is identifying who you are and what each team is.

Graduate transfers making impact in ACC

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Nathan Peterman noticed when Russell Wilson bolted N.C. State for Wisconsin in 2011 as a graduate transfer, but only in a “hey, isn’t that interesting” kind of way. At the time, Peterman was a senior in high school and prepping for a career at Tennessee.
