Default What's all the hype on Jeff Driskel ?

I have seen several analyst talk about how great he is. They downplayed the injuries of the team and himself but couldnt provide facts of why he is great. I just dont get it. Maybe this is why they get paid the big bucks but i think the guy is mediocre. I just do not see Florida being a "Power House" team like some are making them out to be.

probably more of the name on the front of the jersey and I believe he was a highly recruited qb.

Yeah i can understand that... but still the last two years he has done nothing. Also they didn't hype him the last two years as a great QB.

That is where the name on the front of the jersey plays into it. The qb for bama that was beat out by Winston is a heisman contender in some circles and the kid hasn't even taken a snap and thrown the ball in a game.

talented kid + good coordinator + a season last year from which his only direction is "up" = hype

Jeff Driskel led the 2012 Gators to an 11-2 record

He was hyped as a great QB going into 2013 because of his sophomore season and his 6'4" 230lb frame.

He started 3 games last year before breaking his leg and missing the rest of the season.

He has had a great off season of recovery and practice and is the clear starter for the gators.

He doesn't have to be great. They have a ton of talent at the skill positions that the average fan doesn't know about yet. And of course they will have one of the top 5 defenses in the nation this year.

This will be one of our top 3 hardest games.
