I was sad because my team had no defense until I met a team that had no quarterback.

Spring practice in Gainesville is off and running.

… Driskel, still in the early process of learning the new offense, also had some shaky moments, right along with the other quarterbacks. He telegraphed a pass during seven-on-seven and would have thrown a pick six had true freshman cornerback Jalen Tabor not dropped the ball. Behind Driskel, sophomore Skyler Mornhinweg appeared to move ahead of true freshman Will Grier into the No. 2 spot, at least for the day. He was the first one in after Driskel took his reps in drills. Mornhinweg seems to be making good decisions with where to go with the ball, and his passes seem to have much more zip than they did last fall. His experience over Grier, it appears, is becoming a factor. Grier had another solid day. Once again, he was at his best throwing the ball on the short and intermediate routes. Although Driskel, Mornhinweg and Grier are the only scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, there are four walk-ons at the position who are not getting much in the way of reps. Of the four, Jacob Guy seems to be the most natural passer.

By the way, Andreu describes that as part of “another solid practice” for Driskel.  Hell, who knows?  It might have been, depending on where the bar was set.

    Perhaps his performance in the cocktail party will be equally solid.

    OK, I’m on my phone, so I can’t find it, but one of my Gator buddies sent me part of a Bobby Andreu article this morning where he said that some NFL scouts were interested in Driskel.

    Comic gold!

    Think the Gators have it rough? Ladies and gentlemen, I give the 2014 Georgia tech Yellowjackets.

    Hutson mason concerns me:
    1- 8 sacks in 2 games
    2- 3 interceptions in 2 games
    3- .500 record as a starter
    4- 60 quarterback rating (@middle of NCAA)

    Guess Florida ain’t the only one with Qb issues.

    Driskel is 11-4 as a starter, Mason is 1-1, who should be concerned?

    Driskell had a 60 qbr in his first year as starting qb, Mason’s is 63.

    Driskell has a .600+ win %, Mason’s is .500

    Don’t get too excited.


  8. EE

    Oops, actually Driskel has a .730 win % as a starter (11-4), Mason’s is .500 (1-1)

    Mason struggled against the lowly 73rd ranked pass defense Ga Tech.

    Advantage Gators.
