I feel very confident that Cole is well prepared to step right in as the starter this year!

Go Cole...lead this team to the play-offs!

Stoudt or Whitehurst?

Usually, I don't question Dabo's psychology, however, is it

fair to put the pressure on a Senior with an injury-prone freshman? Stoudt has never been injured, Watson in 2 of his last 3 live outings. I guess Dabo is trying to get Watson some experience, but I hope Watson will bulk up before GA. game and that Stoudt does so well, that Watson can redshirt? However I can understand Dabo's concern for next year - getting experience for Watson! Still????


Watson has bulked up.

He has 2 more months to add 20 more lbs. He would be at 230 lbs. Cam Newton size.

I heard that he has beated up with a add ten pounds and that he is all muscles up top at this point. Word stated that he look solid and much bigger frame now.

No need for Watson to redshirt. Enjoy him for the next 3

years whether he's on the sidelines or not because that's all we're likely to get. May as well give him some meaningful live action this season to complement our main man Stoudt.

Thought we just got a game ready transfer?

Watson will not play this year. It's a whole nother level than high school despite him shattering all Ga record books. I think there's wishful thinking he's the next Winston munus the crab legs


He will and probably early....***

If Watson plays early

Posted: Jun 18, 2014 12:41 AM

That likely means Cole got hurt or stunk it up. No need to RS him, he's likely only here for 3 years regardless. However, not everyone is Winston. Winston is the exception, not the rule. If the staff thought Watson was another exception, why would they already have named Cole the starter. Watson would've had all of fall camp to beat Cole out. Apparently, the coaches haven't seen evidence that would happen.

I don't care who starts. I just want the guy that gives us the best chance to win out on that field. Whichever guy that is doesn't matter to me

Watch the video. I know of no reason to doubt Dabo... As

he said, it's about getting Watson playing time this year, regardless....

You mean Winston was so good he didn't RS and watch

from the sidelines as a RS Senior QB started over him is first year at FSU?

Oh wait...

We got a transfer

Posted: Jun 18, 2014 9:32 AM

That was a backup and even though he has a little game experience he will continue to be a backup. Other than Watson we do not have another QB behind Cole that could actually be a true top level starting QB. Watson will see as much playing time this season as Dabo can squeeze in no matter if Cole remains the starter the whole season or not. And if the season looks like it is taking a turn for the worse or if we lose to Georgia and FSU (which will mean we are basically eliminated from any playoff/title contention) then Watson's game time will increase even more and he may even be the starter by the end of the season not because of anything Cole did or didn't do but just to help get him experience for next year.

There is no reason to red-shirt him. He will more than likely be here for only 3 years and if he comes back for a 4th great. Also, red-shirting him will cause another log Jam at the QB position with two quality recruits coming in next year and we don't need another Chad Kelly situation.

We have two transfer QBs that were scholarship QBs in the SEC and PAC12.

Yes but they were only backups, and they will only be backups here. Could they go in a game and be serviceable, manage the game, and even lead the team to a win? Probably so, but it's not like we had Cam Newton and Marcus Marioto* transfer in and are sitting the bench. My point was simply we do not have a starting quality QB in a backup position behind Cole and that is why Watson will not red-shirt. Are the other QB's on the team talented, yes but if Cole went out in the first quarter of the GA game I wouldn't feel comfortable having the transfers leading the team for the rest of the season.
