Not surprised to see the kid inspire the fans in Morgantown. He's about to have a big year. It was a shame to lose him.

Yes it was a shame he took substances that he should not and did not check with the appropriate people. It is also a shame that he was not a dedicated Gator who would accept the consequences of his mistake and then earn his place as starting QB for the Gators. I hope his suspension is exactly the same as if he continued to be a Gator with a year off for transferring. Only time will tell.

More than any other position, it takes a lot of time and effort to get a high school talent ready to play at the college level. When you got a transfer from one of the "big" schools it is a gift for most programs. He still has a lot to learn but has shown the aptitude throughout his short career.

We have a wealth at the QB position now.
Is that a joke?
I saw nothing in the spring to indicate that Del Sucko won't be trotting out there as the starter in Dallas.
Franks is not special. Trask is much worse than I assumed. Allen is going to redshirt.
Bottom line: We STILL will be limited at QB again in 2017.
2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017....let's go for the full decade, guys. Who needs a QB anyway, right? I've already forgotten what having elite QB play is like.

It's not a situation where we have an NFL-caliber QB or bust. The focus of recruiting has been bringing in talent to all positions on offense. Our QB will only have to be a decent game manager, a low-risk enabler and use the talent around them, not a one-man wrecking crew.

Mac will regret his cavalier, uncompromising approach toward the Grier situation.
It may very well cost him his job.
So he should have just bowed down and kissed his ring? No real Gator fan would accept that, and his job is not in real jeopardy.

With three straight seasons of offenses ranked in the 100's, it will be.
No with nine or perhaps more wins it won't be. And I expect a better offense with a better line and other improvements. I don't expect a much worse d either.

First of all, the offensive ranking is not that important to me as a metric. We've won the SEC East the past two years. The next step is to win the SEC, not climb ten or twenty positions in the rankings.
The defense and special teams are also important. In that balance of team power, I'm more worried about our defense after this year's NFL draft.
The focus has been on offense for two years. We should see a lot of improvement this season. The difference won't only be in the level of QB play, but in everyone else on the offense. Making a few more plays, catches and blocks makes all the difference in the final score.
This season we'll need more points and minutes of possession from the offense to help a rebuilding defense.
