What Does Offense Look Like With DJ Uiagalelei?

I know there will be competition at the QB position, but DJ Uiagalelei didn't transfer to FSU to sit on the bench. Also, FSU needs someone with experience to lead this team, someone with a proven track record who knows what to do when adversity hits with so many new players. That's one of the traits that made Jordan Travis so good. Once established, he never got too rattled and didn't allow things to snowball if things were not going his way early. We've seen what Uiagalelei did at Clemson and what he did at Oregon State last season. We've seen what Mike Norvell's offense looked like at Memphis with different quarterbacks and Jordan Travis at FSU.

The good news is the FSU offensive staff has been together for years, and has an excellent track record of molding their offense to its players. I expect the staff to take what he did well, and Clemson and Oregon State and add it to their scheme, while exploring things he can pick up from their offense. What will it look like? Will it be more run-heavy? Will the passing attack be more diverse? Will it be closer to 2022 than 2023? The spring practices should provide a solid indicator of what to expect by the time the spring game rolls around next month.
