Stacy Revere

Here is the recap of Jimbo Fisher's appearance on the post-spring ACC Coaches Teleconference. These blurbs originally appeared on the @TomahawkNation twitter account. These are not direct quotes, but rather paraphrasing transcribed at a rapid pace.

Jimbo Fisher says he is glad spring is over w/ no major or critical injuries. Said team got better in second half, developed depth. #Noles. Jimbo Fisher says #Noles developed depth in the OL, RB, QB, young guys, receivers, DL, young linebackers and secondary. OK, coach.

Jimbo Fisher says backup QB Sean Maguire grasped offense and executed what he can do. Says John Franklin is athletic but needs to develop. Jimbo Fisher says QB Franklin (who runs for FSU's track team) can create with his feet and do things in certain situations. #Noles Jimbo Fisher says key to not having QB dropoff when one leaves for NFL is to adjust system to a player's skills and recruit. Jimbo Fisher says the quarterbacks who have gone off to the NFL have shown the new starter how to prepare, watch film, work, etc.

Jimbo Fisher says there is no time to decompress after winning a national title because the game is played so late. #Noles #FSU

Jimbo Fisher says Jeremy Pruitt ran the system that he wanted him to run and did a very good job organizing and calling games. #Noles Jimbo Fisher has "no idea" how quickly Jeremy Pruitt can turn Georgia's defense around. Says he doesn't know enough about #UGA. #Noles Jimbo Fisher says he knew FSU's defense would be good regardless of who was coordinating the defense.

Jimbo Fisher's message to Jameis this spring balancing baseball and football: exactly the same as last year. He didn't miss anything. Jimbo Fisher says Jameis Winston was more tired this year having gone through full football season and right into baseball. #Noles

Jimbo Fisher on unionization: we haven't talked about it. Good and unknown points to it. Says players voices do need to be heard. He says he doesn't have enough info to comment on whether unionization for CFB would be good or bad. Says players need to be heard. Jimbo Fisher is in favor of full-cost scholarships, room and board, etc. #Noles
