    Really wondering why he wasn’t a 5 star with all these honors.

    Because he played at a small school and the competition was less than pathetic.

    So that explains why he dominated at all the camps against the top rated recruits and is winning all these MVPs and player of the year awards? Haha keep hating though

    Pathetic? Kind of like the ACC football schedule FSU played last year. Beat small teams and no one on the team gets injuries. Then get lucky at the National title game. Winston had the deer in the headlights look all game until Auburn pulled his hamstring on the kick-off.

    FSU won, congrats. You played better and had a lot of luck in the 2nd half.

    The cover-up of the Jameis Winston investigation was a joke. Defend him all you want until it’s your daughter.

    Stay classy Noles!

    Let’s see if you even make the playoffs with your weak strength of schedule.

    Dominating camps means nothing, especially at the QB position. Driskel was heralded as the #1 QB in the country, with pro potential. Doubt if anybody is standing behind that statement right now.

    Grier will have to fight keep his number one spot with Treon Harris on the roster. In fact, Grier will more than likely lose his spot to Harris barring other circumstances going into the 2015 season.

    You are absolutely right John, if FSU had Georgia Southern on it’s schedule they probably would have lost a game. It’s great to be a Florida 4and8ter!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dominating camps means nothing?? Oh so playing well against all of the top players you’ll be playing against in college doesn’t mean a thing? Well that’s nice to know. I guess have good fundamentals and all the skills means nothing as well? Ha. Come on man. There’s a reason the camps are tun and watched so closely. They separate the men from the boys. As far as Driskel, he’s a QB that has great running ability, very accurate, shows poise, and led us to a 11-3 record as a starter as opposed to a 3-7 record without him. He didn’t completely get reading defenses and the mental side of the game in 2012 but that can change with experience and Roper and it’s not the recruiting rankings or camps jobs to judge how a player will develop or be coached up. Based on Jeff’s tangibles I’d stand by those rankings. He had all the potential in the world. Now it’s up to him and Roper to turn that into playmaking production.
