Track most likely
I know its Track but why are things not panning out as planned?
He's missing practice for meets, probably.
Track is in the middle of its season and Bracy is an important member of the team. Jimbo made clear that missing practice is doing damage to Bracy's progress.

Did Jimbo not have a track schedule? It seemed they had everything planned out for him to be at practices on certain days. So why is this all of sudden becoming a difficult situation?
Because the current situation wasn't planned. He should be at more practices.
Bracy had a much brighter future in track can't really blame him for focusing on it.
Except for the fact that he's on scholarship for football
Jimbo needs to get it together. All of this should have been planned out long ago. Get with the track coach and work it out
GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
Sounds like a plan was worked out but isn't being followed....
Watch the Jimbo interview from today, his face says how he feels about the situation. "It will hinder him greatly"
Only positive is he is sitting in on all the meetings, needs to save his legs or something.

Kid's money is in track. Blame the NCAA or miami as to why he'll have to be on football scholly.
His obligation is to the football team. If track is his focus, he should quit football
Wouldn't be surprised to see Kermit in the same situation next year.
We wouldn't even have got him if it wasn't for track. Track is his future. I never thought he would be anymore than a return man and used on bubbles and reverses. He will be used like Louis Givens was years back.

Spot on and I'm kind of shocked Jimbo is taking it like this. He should be used on simple plays to get him into space and as a decoy. He was never going to be one of our top 3 receivers.
I agree, he's probably Jeff Demps on the football team and a likely Olympian at track. But he is doing it on football's dime.
I agree, Chris. As elite a sprinter he already is, why risk playing football. Would there be an issue with his scholarship essentially switching to track? Or is there some kind of regulation that prevents such a thing?
Lets also not jump to far ahead here.
The FSU outdoor track team is one of about six teams that can win the NCAA track title this year. There is NO way FSU can win it without Bracy. Braman works very hard getting his kids to peak for the regionals and NCAA and running up and down a football field will not help... I think MB as a frosh is thinking he can try and see where this takes him and then make decisions from there.
Yes I know he is on a football SS...and maybe he ends up being just a return/spot guy on the team instead of the blazing deep threat we all want. However, I don't think this spring is going to be make or break for his football career...YET.
I believe you have to be in your original scholarship for two years before you can switch.
I figured this was going to happen.
It's a shame, I was looking forward to him making explosive plays on the football field.
I don't see what the big deal is here. Clemson had two college stars excel at both (CJ Spiller Jacoby Ford) and seemed just fine. You know what you were getting when you recruit players like this. Jimbo just needs to calm down use his strengths when he come back. So what if he can only run a few routes. Who is going to cover him? You get the kid in space any way you can. Trindan Holliday was a specialist that helped Jimbo win a title at LSU, so he should be used to this anyway.
TREASURE COAST HIGH: "TITAN BORN TITAN BRED"
Why is he more of a Louis Givens and not a Jeff Demps?
