This dude definitely showed up his oline in a game I watched this year. On the field, not on the sideline. Not in a motivational way either. You don't typically see that.

Francois was never going to play QB again at FSU....the audio made it easy for Taggart to lift the schollie. Francois has graduated.

Francois announced back in mid December that he was weighing his options and the kid was already on thin ice. He wouldn't tell the team his intentions...

Blackman had overtaken him, a solid transfer was coming in, plus a 4 star commit...He was moving on

It contradicts the audio of Francois in the video she posted. He says something to hear along the lines of I'll hit you again, making it clear that he has hit her in the past and will do so again. This kind of walking back is really common in DV cases, and his own words implicate him.
Not necessarily. If you listen to the tape, my guess is she threw something or somethings and you threw something that hit her in the face. He says "keep throwing.." which sounds like she had been throwing things. If he was hitting her in the face with his hands, I would image we would have heard more of a reaction from her. She didn't sound stressed on that level and there were no audible signs of physical contact.

This looks like two young people in a bad situation. And before someone says it, I am not siding with him or condoning anything. He may have hit her before and after that moment, but nothing on that tape leads me to believe he hit her with his hands in that moment. Her recent post may be true.

If Blackman had overtaken him why did he put his name in to the transfer portal?

OK..I will tell you more...He is not in the portal...bad info reported...he might have been thinking of it..but he did not register.

"At the end of business Friday afternoon, Florida State sophomore quarterback James Blackman still had not entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, contrary to a published report earlier this week.

However, an FSU source confirmed with Warchant.com on Friday at 6 p.m., that Blackman was not in the portal now and had never been in it.


Report: Florida State QB Blackman not considering transfer after all

Quarterback James Blackman is expected to remain at Florida State.

I'm pretty sure Blackman is the only scholarship QB they have on the roster that is actually eligible to play next year. I believe the transfer kid has to sit out and they lost out on a kid to Maryland. Willie is gonna be on the hot seat up there soon if he isn't already.

Yeah that’s a nice PR spin job by those boys in tallahasse. It’d be a bad look for a college to lose the starter bad backup QB all in a month. Hate to tell you but Francois was going to be the starter though and that comes from a very good friend of Taggarts.

It is a crap show, Billy and you know it.

FSU is in deep and it isn't good.
