FSU loses quarterback Sean Maguire for four weeks with foot injury

in Uncategorized by

Things just got a little harder for the Florida State football team. Redshirt senior quarterback Sean Maguire, considered a favorite to hold off redshirt freshman Deondre Francois, has a broken foot and will undergo surgery on his right foot “probably Monday,” according to head coach Jimbo Fisher. Maguire is supposed to miss four weeks, which  means he will miss the opener on Sept. 5 against Ole Miss. Francois has begun working with the first team. Fisher said Maguire hurt his…

Look for Sean Maguire to lead the Seminoles at quarterback again

in Sports/Top Headlines by

He’s the safe choice, the sane choice. He’s been here before. He’s led FSU downfield before. Yep, it’s Sean Maguire’s team, all right. Unless it isn’t. As FSU began its fall practice Tuesday afternoon, the question was probably where it shouldn’t be. After all, Maguire was the best quarterback for the Seminoles last season, wasn’t he? Surely, Jimbo Fisher wouldn’t pick another quarterback over Maguire, the way he did Everett Golson, would he? And still… There are a lot of…

Florida’s college football teams must have better passing attacks in ’16

in Sports/Top Headlines by

They can block. They can tackle. They can run like the wind. But when it comes to your favorite college football team this season, you have one simple question. Can they pass? And, for heaven sakes, can they do it better than they did it ago. Everyone wants to be better, right? Everyone wants to win bigger. But for the teams of Florida, the question is whether the passing attacks from last year can be better this year. Consider Florida…

State’s quarterbacks will have to prove that they’re among the elite nationally

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The past is good. But how about the present? After a week of reflecting back on the best quarterbacks to play for each program, isn’t it time to wonder about the season to come? And, specifically, do the programs of Florida have enough quarterbacking to make runs at their conference titles? Certainly, they will not be quarterback-driven teams. Florida’s schools are hoping for surprises (such as the Gators’ Will Grier was last year before his PED suspension). They’re hoping for…

FSU’s quarterback is Sean Maguire — today and tomorrow

in Sports/Top Headlines by

For once, FSU’s Sean Maguire’s chief competitor won’t be looking over his shoulder. Everett Golson isn’t here, preferring to sit out this Peach Bowl for “personal reasons.” That leaves the job of playing against Houston in McGuire’s hands. Finally, it is his job. Finally, it is his team. And it will be his job against next season. Oh, FSU will have other quarterbacks. A program such as FSU always has. Freshman Deondre Francoise and recruit Malik Henry will be around. But…

Year in Review: FSU Seminoes don’t meet their high standards in 2015

in Sports/Top Headlines by

For most schools, it would have been a terrific season. A 10-2 record. A star running back. A great defense. But for FSU, the 2015 season will be one of disappointment. After winning a national title and reaching the college football playoffs in the two previous seasons, the Florida State Seminoles showed a bit of slippage this year. Part of the reason is that transfer quarterback Everett Golson didn’t match the hype, and eventually, he was replaced by Sean McGuire.…

College roundup: USF wins the biggest game of Taggart’s era

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Perhaps it wasn’t Willie Taggart’s signature victory. On the other hand, it will do until a better one comes along. Taggart, who was talking about being on the hot seat earlier as his team got off to a 1-3 start, now has a team that is bowl eligible. The USF Bulls upset Temple, the nation’s 22nd ranked team, with a complete effort Friday night. The Bulls won 44-23 behind the Three Amigos, there three headed attack of running back Marlon…
