If I’m picking Florida to be Georgia’s biggest challenge in the East this season — and I have to admit I’m leaning that way — here’s an indication of the reason why:
No Florida quarterback has thrown more than 12 touchdown passes in a season since Tim Tebow in 2009. It’s a glaring statistic that shows just how inept Florida’s offense has been since.
Mullen ain’t perfect, but one thing he’s shown consistently throughout his coaching career is that he knows how to develop quarterbacks. The Gators are a flawed team, but if Mullen can construct a viable passing game out of what he’s got on the roster, they’ll be a pretty decent one.
It’s not like he’s got anywhere to go but up, either.
