    The TPD just released a picture of the back of Francois pickup truck with the 20.4999 grams of pot in it and claimed they only rounded down to avoid 21 grams and a felony. It sure looks like more than 20 grams to me.

    After a two month long "suspected drug activity" investigation TPD saves another Seminole quarterbacks ass. This chit just never gets old.

    I'm surprised this even came to light. I thought standard TPD procedure when you catch a football player with weed was to offer him rolling papers.

    As much as I despise that "school", DF is a very talented QB. Gotta give credit where credit is due.

    Without a doubt the kid is a warrior. The pounding he took while playing there I don’t blame him using the Sweet Stinky.

    In his defense, coach Taggart told him he wanted to see if he could "take a hit".

    Im not gonna rip a FSU player when I wouldnt rip a UF player for doing it.

    Legalize it, dropped it from banned substances and be done with it. Id rather our athletes smoke a doobie than get blind drunk

    Not ripping the player - more how we know this is going to be handled st the cesspool. I agree it should be legalized, but that’s not the point here

    Regardless of the opinion on marijuana, it is not legal in all 50 states and it may never be. That is one of a bazillion reasons that the NCAA may never allow it. That being said, part of being a student is learning how to follow the rules. Francois is from Florida, so he had a general idea that his activities would be illegal according to state law, NCAA bylaws, and school or team rules. I foresee a slap on the wrist from Taggart. He might start against Florida in November, so we can get our jokes in now. In November I think FSU's QB situation will be better than Florida's .

    I think their QB situation will be better in August. By November, we may be feeling pretty good about ours.

    I'll rip Francois for it. Mainly because I've ripped Gator players for it, and I'm actually harder on our players than I am on fsu's at times.

    I sure hope you are right and I am wrong. Maybe it is the quarterback funk from the past 8 or 9 years getting to me and making me a pessimist about our qb situation.

    Tallahassee police suspected FSU QB Deondre Francois was selling marijuana at apartment

    "The anonymous male tipster, who said he was inside Francois’s apartment in late February, told TPD he saw a large paper grocery-type bag full of cannabis, estimated at about two pounds, present during a drug-related crime.
    The tip led to an investigation in which TPD collected and examined the contents of Francois’ curbside garbage on four separate occasions.
    But when TPD concluded its investigation of Francois last Thursday, an executed search warrant conducted at his apartment yielded just 17 grams of marijuana among other items."
