I would be shocked if Cole is not the starting QB week one against UGA.

Given the reps that they had this year, it would be very surprising if Chad Kelley beat him out.

...and Watson may have all-world potential, but I doubt his wheels make up for the fact that Cole has been in the system for three years and actually won some games for us; Including, at least one come-back drive after Tahj got hurt, I believe.

We don't need him to be the short yardage runner if either Gallman or Dye can get the job and it isn't like he has been a statue back there. He has picked up first downs with his legs.

It wouldn't kill us to have a pass-first QB and the kid is a ball player. He may only play for one year, but if he can beat the other guys out, or even keep neck and neck with them, I think you have to feed your seniors to keep everybody working who would be great 2/3/4 years from now, rather than just letting them resign themselves that they are going to be a career backup if we have a high profile recruit come in before they leave.

That said, if Watson comes out and sets the world on fire, all bets are off (I'm sure FSU has no regrets about starting a freshman QB) but I think to do it, Watson is going to have to come in and be clearly, undeniably better and that is going to be hard to do by week one given the body of work that Cole has put up.
