Let’s check in on the quarterback whisperer, to see how he’s getting Florida’s successor to Trask ready for game play:
Coming out of spring ball, there are plenty of things Jones can work on. He was a little shaky in terms of accuracy early in spring ball, but Mullen said he developed as spring went on and is starting to learn how to put certain touch on different throws as he gets more reps within the offense.
Three years in the program, and he’s just now starting to learn how to throw with touch? Ho-kay, Danno.
And before you say “aha, told you it would be Richardson!”, if it’s taken Jones three years to learn how to throw, what makes you think Richardson’s gonna nail it in a few weeks?
“I talked to the guys today and — yesterday really it was about it — about quarterbacks and receivers right now, you have April, May, June and July, you have four months where you guys can get out there, you get your timing down, you get that exactness down, you get comfortable with each other and where you’re going to be and how you’re going to make the throws and you get the communications down, beyond the coaching where you guys have that kind of feel of how guys are, where they’re going to be on field. I think that’s a huge part for those guys moving forward.”
“Y’all figure it out over the summer” is a helluva plan. I see where Mullen gets his reputation from.
