#DearAndy: Will Deondre Francois be FSU's starting QB?
Wednesday April 6th, 2016

After three straight ACC titles, Florida State surrendered the conference back to Clemson in 2015 as the Tigers made a run to the College Football Playoff. But with most of their talent returning, including Heisman candidate Dalvin Cook, the Seminoles look poised to fight to regain conference supremacy this fall.

Does Florida State have the pieces to surpass Clemson? Bud Elliott, publisher of and SBNation's national recruiting director, joins host Zac Ellis to break down the Seminoles' 2016 prospects. He and Zac also discuss Clemson's rebuild on defense, Louisville's attempts to finally break through to the top of the ACC, whether Mark Richt can return Miami to national relevancy and more.
