    With Morris/Miami's QB limping now and J. Winston/FSU having not played anybody but cupcakes, I wonder how in the next few weeks plays out. Both Miami and FSU the opponents will have a pulse as the season progresses and with Murphy helping out Florida, if he keeps doing what he did Saturday, the eyes of the nation and recruits will see that Florida has found a experience QB that can put points on the board.

    All three teams are one injury away from having to adjust their offenses. I think the Gators with Pease/Murphy this week did one heck of a job. Here's hoping it continues.

    think we wait on see on Murph....certainly encouraged by UT performance

    Jameis will get tested some in the next few weeks, but Clemson will be the actual game where Noles fans will either be proven right or wrong on him. If he lights up Clemson then he'll be lots of trouble

    Dont really care about Miami, think we gave that game away but hope they beat FSU

    The thing is with Jameis, I don't think the Clemson game will tell us much because anyone can score points on their D. I would say NC State will be a better test. FSU was scoring points last year until they only put up 16 against NCSt. and lost... And this last week NC State controlled Clemson's O pretty well for most of the game and they "only" put up 26 points.

    the thing with jameis and clemson is he will actually have to score points. so, at least there is a little pressure on him

    UCF's Bortles could be the best in state this year. Really looking fwd to their USCe game this week. They may not win, but it will give hints to Pease how to plan for the old ball coach.

    i'm cautiously optimistic about murphy. but if winston has played cupcakes, what do you call the tennessee team murph just faced?

    He won't have any problem putting points on them... if he has to. He may just need to hand the ball off to Freman and Wilder, Jr. and let them do the work on that porous D line and LB group.

    I'm sure you mean Lorenzo Ward, USCe's DC? Muschamp and Durkin will worry about the Ol' Ball Coach, but being that USCe averages less than 250 yards of offense on Florida's D since Muschamp arrived, I don't think Champ and Durkin are overly concerned. They are more concerned about the Leghumpers right now, but there is a lot of season left to play.

    I am looking forward to what Bortles can do, however. Knights look to be solid on both sides of the ball of late.

    FSU probably has the best backup as well in Coker if you want to give a truly fair comparison.

    Tenn has. A foundation started. Add a good qb and rb, thus team will make some noise.
    Pitch doesn't look like someone who likes losing. We were struggling against these guys until Murphy showed up. So is tenn any good, no but decent. The next two weeks will. Show us a better sample. Light them up Tyler!
