Who starts at quarterback, Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel? That is the main question surrounding Florida football since the end of last season.
Unfortunately the question still lingers throughout the coaching staff and the fan base even after Brissett and Driskel battled all throughout spring and fall practice. Both Brissett and Driskel have shown positive signs, but neither has been able to create much separation and remain even in the eyes of the coaches.
The fact that they are still both even has prompted Gators head coach Will Muschamp to resume their battle into Saturday’s season opener against Bowling Green.
Muschamp and new offensive coordinator Brent Pease have laid out their plan to play one quarterback in the first quarter and the other in the second. They have yet to announce which quarter will belong to who or their plan for the second half.
Whatever order chosen, it is sure to give the coaches a clearer look at Brissett and Driskel’s command and understanding of the offense in an actual game situation. Brissett is the popular pick by many as the one with the edge, but Driskel’s potential for the future seems to be greater.
Bowling Green will not present the same test that the Gators will encounter in the SEC, but are an FBS team with the capability of making a bowl game this season.
The Gators will not have the luxury of two “cupcake” games to open with, as a trip to Texas A&M awaits in week two. Because of this, even more importance falls on the play against Bowling Green especially by the quarterbacks.
Even though uncertainty surrounds this season for the Gators, sit back and enjoy as another season of college football embarks.
