    I think more pressure is on Muschamp. Honestly, given our last 3 years, all Jeff has to do is lead an offense that's ranked in the top half of football and he will be viewed favorably. Expectations really couldn't be lower IMO

    Jeff's as well as some of his offensive teammates' futures as NFL prospects may depend on making this work. Will's future as Gator coach may rest on offensive production.

    True but Jeff also knows we have two very talented freshman QB waiting for their shot as well. Hopefully both Muschamp and Jeff succeed.

    Any UF QB will have a ton of pressure. It comes with the territory. I don't think he's afraid of the pressure, he showed to be quite capable on several occasions, but he needs some help form his OL and receivers. The last offensive regime, was not well run. I have a little more faith in Roper's capabilities, than the previous coordinator's.

    If Jeff does that champ will succeed, it's the offense that's held us back most

    All the pressure is on Muschamp. Muschamp is very unlikely to play a freshman at any position, especially QB. The only question is, will Grier redshirt? He shouldn't, but don't be surprised if he does (especially if Driskel goes through the season without injury).

    More pressure on Champ, but there's pressure on JD, too.

    He is a fourth year player that was one of the top recruits in the country... #1 QB recruit in more than one ranking. If he isn't getting the job done by this season, in an offense that suits his skill set, Champ and Roper almost have to look to the freshmen, even if that means doing it from perspective of accepting more mistakes now to get them ready for next year... so they can demonstrate that our offense is heading in the right direction.

    I agree with this.

    If Jeff has a great year, I believe we have the talent to get in the playoff.

    I agree, it's not top rate journalism....but they do put out regular CFB topics that get fans to discuss CFB. This time of year, there's not much to talk about. Look at the front page of Swamp Gas, it's a pissing contest about FSU and/or Winston. I'm sick of that topic. I'd rather talk about UF and our upcoming season. So, for that purpose, I don't mind Bleacher Report. It's similar to Franz's "Thoughts of the Day"; just a few topics to discuss today.

    103 days until fall camp opens!
