Jordan Travis Must Improve Decision-Making

I’m fully aware of Jordan Travis’s place in the importance of FSU’s turnaround under Mike Norvell. He’s raised the bar for FSU QBs coming after him.

His experience is what can be helpful at times, but some of his decisions in the game Saturday night were head-scratchers. It was the second week in a row we saw him run backward and take a sack from a defender coming from behind.

Travis has to run outside of the pocket and throw the ball away. There were other times when he could have made better throws.

Other times he should have kept the ball instead of handing it off to the running back, where he could have changed the game with his legs.

There were times he could have checked into a running play or out of a running play based on what Miami had in the box. I know it sounds like I’m nit-picking, but Jordan Travis can and has played a lot better than he did Saturday night.

If FSU wants to compete for an ACC and national title, he’ll have to raise the level of his game.
