I understand that Boom may feel like he has no other choice, given the state of Driskel’s health, but this doesn’t strike me as a great move for a quarterback who’s used to running as part of his game.
Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel said Friday he won’t take a hit on the football field until the season opener on Aug. 31 against Toledo, after having his appendix removed last week and missing the first six practices of camp.
But he feels like everything is getting back to normal.
Sure he does.
It will be worth watching the Gators’ turnover numbers early on. That was a big factor in their success last year. But expecting a quarterback who won’t feel any hitting until the season starts to play flawlessly is a gamble of sorts.
