Offensive Coordinator Walt Bell spoke with the media Sunday morning during FSU’s annual Media Day, and our Michael Hudak was there to interview him.
Florida State held its first scrimmage of the preseason on Saturday and most of Bell’s interview was spent addressing how the offense performed. Earlier in the press conference, head coach Willie Taggart said that for the first time of fall camp the offense outperformed the defense and he had high praises for the unit.
Following up Taggart’s comments, Bell addressed what he looks for out of his players during the first scrimmages. He highlighted things such as player effort, pre and post snap penalties, and whether or not they are taking care of the football. He stated that he was very happy that the offense because they had zero turnovers and that they had their best day in terms of alignment issues. He said that going forward they need to remain focused on cleaning up technically. He spoke about the QB battle and the effects of Deondre Francois missing spring ball, but that he thought Francois had his best day yesterday overall. When asked about the the difference between offenses, he made a unique comparison between the new offense and playing point guard in basketball, and then further commented on how adaptability is one of Taggart’s most important strengths.
