Baylor QB Florence has comparable numbers to RG3
Question of the Day
“He has experience, that’s what gets overlooked. He has so much experience in that system and has been through it year in and year out, he understands the system, he manages the ballgame quite well,” Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said. “He’s a very balanced quarterback. He can run it, he can throw it.”
Even after receiver Kendall Wright was a first-round draft pick, Baylor has the nation’s leading receiver in Terrance Williams (159 yards per game).
“Nick has handled himself very, very well, because to me, I don’t really see a big drop off from Robert from the passing standpoint,” said Wright, who worked several days a week with Florence this summer after they had been on the second-team offense in practice in the past.
Florence, sporting a beard that he started growing in May and hasn’t trimmed for two months, is working on a master’s degree in business administration that he’s scheduled to complete in December 2013.
As far as his Baylor football career, he has at least three games left. Hopefully four.
“The fans here have been great, I don’t think they’ve compared me to (Griffin) once. I’m different,” Florence said. “If I try to compare and try to be like him, I’m going to fail completely. … It just comes from my faith and my identity in Christ. For me, whatever I do on or off the field, I’m a winner in Christ, so I think that’s the way I approach the game.”
