During a stop in Jacksonville on Tuesday, Florida State head coach Willie Taggart spoke on the Seminoles’ new approach to play calling this spring:
Taggart says FSU didn’t have a playbook this spring. Guys take notes. They walk through. He questioned it at first but Briles has encouraged it and it has led to a faster tempo this spring.— Bob Ferrante (@BobFerrante) April 16, 2019
Though it might strike as odd, it’s not a huge shock: new offensive coordinator Kendal Briles didn’t use play sheets at FAU or Houston either, the reasoning being that taking the time to look at them was pre-snap time being wasted.
Taggart also spoke on FSU’s approach to its offensive gameplan in the spring game:

It’s the offseason, so let’s either get mad at some random on The Paul Finebaum Show saying South Carolina is the hardest game on Clemson’s schedule or cry and nod in agreement:
"Clemson's schedule is so soft. We are talking about one of the easiest schedule in the Power 5. They are 2 TD favorites over everyone on their schedule and the toughest game is at South Carolina" - @SethWalder pic.twitter.com/j3mBz9xCpD— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) April 17, 2019
