Spring questions: Finding a new QB

Editor’s note: Each day until the start of spring practice, we’ll pose a question facing Florida State's football team as it moves toward the 2013 season. Today’s question: Will FSU have its new starting quarterback in time for the spring game?

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Jimbo Fisher previewed spring practice Monday by offering a well worn bit of coach speak, insisting every spot on the depth chart is an open competition. Of course, even if that were true, none would be quite as interesting as the battle for the starting quarterback job.

While Fisher might be liberally defining the competition at other spots on the roster, this one really is a wide open race, and picking the favorite is little more than conjecture until Clint Trickett, Jacob Coker, Jameis Winston and Sean Maguire get onto the field.
