Jimbo Fisher: 'Name me a team that doesn't have trouble with dual-threat quarterbacks'
Florida State has had trouble with dual-threat quarterbacks.
The last five quarterback to beat FSU have been excellent runners, as I mentioned last week.
Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said those issues aren't unique to FSU.
"Name me a team that doesn't have trouble with dual-threat quarterbacks," Fisher said. "That's what I want to know. Name me a team that doesn't have trouble with dual-threat quarterbacks. That's part of it. That's the way of the world, and the way people do things. And the best team in the country, Alabama, has trouble with them. Ohio State, everybody has trouble with them. That's it."
There isn't an easy fix to the problem, otherwise Fisher (or Alabama's Nick Saban, or someone else) would have implemented it. But Fisher did note one way to attack it, as his ‘Noles did last week against USF.
"We dual-threated them back," Fisher said.
FSU moved redshirt freshman quarterback Deondre Francois around more; he rushed 10 times for 75 yards and a touchdown.
