TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Florida State football in 2018 has been an endless parade of questions. The year started with us asking "What will the offense look like?" before becoming "Will the offense get better?" From "Which upperclassmen will take a step forward?" to "Which young guys deserve more playing time?"

But, since Wilile Taggart named Deondre Francois the starting quarterback ahead of the season opener against Virginia Tech, quarterback hasn't been a question. Until this week.

Francois has been day-to-day, according to Taggart, with an undisclosed injury and backup QB, James Blackman, has taken most, if not all, of the snaps with the first team in the portion off practice the media is allowed to view.

Taggart says the fiery sophomore will be ready to go on Saturday in Raleigh if they need him.

"Fully prepared, has plenty of experience and he has the backing of his teammates to go out and get the job done," Taggart said. "Very, very, very confident. I just think that he understands what we're doing offensively and he can go out an execute at a high level and I think he can get his teammates to do that to."
