FSU Notebook

Florida State Seminoles staying the course with Jameis Winston at quarterback


Miami Herald Writer

On Saturday when No. 2 Florida State (10-0, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) hosts Idaho (1-9), Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher says he has no plans to give back-up quarterback Sean Maguire extra reps with the first team.

“No. It will be the same. We have to play each game by ear,” said Fisher. “If we’re playing well and we’re ahead we may try to do some things but if not, we’ve got to win the ball game. We’ve got to do what we’ve got to do.”

With starting quarterback Jameis Winston embroiled in a sexual assault investigation, the Seminoles would be forced to turn to Maguire in the event that Winston is charged. Under university rules if a player is charged with a felony that player is suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of their case.

Winston’s accuser met with the state attorney’s office on Thursday. A decision in the case is expected by Thanksgiving.
