Jeff Driskel, Florida just can’t quit you, baby.

He’s like a coach on the field!

That explains so much.

Tuesday morning buffet

Hungry?

  • Arkansas threw the ball 40 times in the Alabama game.
  • Speaking of throwing, broke down Hutson Mason’s game against Mizzou.  (Hint:  he likee.)
  • Jimbo Fisher goes all in on Jameis Winston“. . . There is not a victim because there was no crime. . .”
  • And speaking of Winston, hoo boy.
  • Coach Richt, on his evolution at head coach:  “I’ve gotten to a point where I don’t do as much hands-on coaching as I used to. Mike Bobo and Pruitt are doing most of that now. I deal with more things during the game and in the week preceding the game.”
  • Jerry Palm notes that the selection committee will continue the tradition of not taking margin of victory into account.  Idiots.
  • The descent of Jeff Driskel is a thing:  “Right now, Jeff would probably start, but both will play.”  The “probably” is an especially nice touch.
  • Speaking of Boom, this is still a thing, too.
  • Georgia moves up a whopping twelve spots, to ninth, in the latest F/+ rankings.

Today’s exercise in gallows humor

Looks good with jorts!

Boom or bust

You’ve probably heard about the fight involving two Florida players that was serious enough that police were called.  That’s not the best part.

This is.

Willis was rated a five-star prospect out of New Orleans’ Edna Karr High School according to 247Sports, and in two appearances had already recorded four tackles and half a tackle-for-loss. But Goldkamp cited a source in reporting he had already missed the Gators’ games against Kentucky and Alabama for disciplinary reasons.

With Harris suspended and his fellow freshman Will Grier struggling with back spasms,according to the Gainesville Sun, Mornhinweg could be the Gators’ backup behind Jeff Driskel when Florida hosts LSU Saturday. Mornhinweg — the son of New York Jets’ assistant Marty Mornhinweg — started three games and threw for 344 yards in 2013 after starter Driskel and backup Tyler Murphy both went down with injuries.

Maybe the wheels aren’t coming off the wagon quite yet in Gainesville.  But I’d sure take a look to see how much tread is left on the tires.

Don’t leave me hanging, Twitter.

Depending on your point of view, canning Boom or giving him an extension would qualify.

***********************************************************************

UPDATE:  This is just as good.

You can commence with the Auburn jokes any time you’d like.

Oh, and Driskel for the win…

***********************************************************************

UPDATE #2:  He’s on the mother.

Corch may be gone, but his spirit lives on in Gainesville.

UPDATE #3:  Oops.

Give him a day and he won’t remember the kid’s name.

Meteor game thoughts

Well, I can’t let Florida-Tennessee pass without saying something.

So here goes:

First, it’s worth remembering that while Georgia is no longer Florida’s bitch, Tennessee still is.

Second, it’s rather startling to consider how irrelevant today’s game is.

59 Years since Florida and Tennessee squared off and neither team was ranked, as is the case for their game on Saturday. In 1955, Tennessee defeated Florida 20-0 in the most recent game in the series between unranked teams. Since the AP poll began in 1936, Florida and Tennessee have met twice when neither team was ranked, the other a 14-0 victory for the Gators in 1954. The teams had 31 consecutive meetings in which at least one of them was ranked. In 20 of those games, both were ranked. In the previous 28 games, Florida was ranked.

And if the Gators lose today, it’ll be even more insignificant.
