    How much do you think our lack of player development and depth comes from us not having a chance to play our back-ups in games?

    I don't know enough about the players on other teams to comment except to note that several backup QBs on other teams have played very well - Mauck with Missouri, Kevin Hogan of Stanford last year, and the Vandy QB this year come immediately to mind. Losing a starter, even a starting QB, isn't necessarily fatal especially when as in our case the starter wasn't exactly setting the world on fire.

    It's huge. Nothing subs for reps and playing time. You cannot simulate game speed and intensity in practice. 7 on 7 and helmets and shells only go so far. I have complained for 3 years about the waiting until it's late in the 4th qtr to put the tomato cans away and not having the backups get meaningful to them, snaps.

    Another of the small things our training wheels using hbc has yet to figure out.

    Kind of a silly argument, but at the depth chart I'm looking at, their 5th offensive tackle is a 3 star freshman. How would he do in the SEC? On D, if they lost Jernigan, they'd be in big trouble. The talent behind him is bad and they'd def move their DE inside. One thing that makes them so effective is having 3 good WRs and losing any of the 3 would also be a big blow.

    Not saying they'd look like us, but I would bet the house that UM and Clemson would have destroyed them and they'd have one other loss to a bad ACC team (which would be worse than any of our losses)

    Garbage time minutes ? Very little. We play a ton of people on defense when healthy prob around 20 guys. We go 3 deep at RB played 5 WR 2 TE'S would prob be three if Thompson was healthy 2 FB's 7 OL. This is during the regular course of a game so the 2nd string is playing. Not to mention all the Younger players that play on special teams.

    There was no real race with Coker. That was always Winston's job hands-down.

    But simply put, you just take Winston out the equation and fsu probably has three losses.

    Coker is not Winston but he may be better than any QB on our roster...the FSU D is too good for that schedule. I don't think they lose a game without Winston against that schedule. The Clemson game would have been the only one you could look at yet the D caused enough turnovers and scores they probably could have won that game with the backup QB's. They cannot beat Bama without Winston though.

    Not sure what depth chart you are looking at but to say that FSU would big trouble on DL if Jernigan went down is laughable. Don't get me wrong, Jernigan is our best DLinemen, but behind him you have Eddie Goldman (former #1 DT recruit '11 class), Justin Shanks (4*), along with McAllister, a four year contributed, and Lawerence Stample (who our coaches love), along with Keith Bryant (4* DT recruit last year) and Derrick Mitchell.

    At DE - you have MEIII, Walker, Cashiers, and Hicks. With C. Jones used on 3rd downs.

    At WR - Losing one of the Top 3 would hurt a bit, but FSU also has Christian Green (4*) who would be able to step in. There is a chance some of the freshman, who have played a lot this season, could also step up.

    FSU has depth issues at OLine and RB, and now QB due to Coker going down. The QB competition between Winston and Coker was close and Coker was going to be counted on to play if Winston went down. Now it looks like he has played his last game for FSU and will be headed to 'Bama next year after graduating this summer.

    And being trailer trash with a chance to rub it in the faces of their betters, expect no mercy. It might be one of the ugliest losses in UF history. I'm not particularly looking forward to it. LOL

    I think the whole Coker thing might be a bit of a myth. He gotten a lot of excuses up to this point but he just doesn't look as good as his hype suggests. Some of it can be attributed to the backup OL that he is playing with in the second half of these games, but his pocket presence and decision making has been mediocre at best.

    Who knows. Maybe he'll blow up when he transfers. He does have all of the physical tools.

    Winston is the key to that entire team, program and fanbase right now. He makes Jimbo and his assistants look like genuises and makes every player on offense better

    Losing him would be like losing Peyton Manning or Tom Brady in NFL

    Other losses he could cover them all up....our offense can't compensate for losses on defense

    This is what Muschamp defenders have come to

    Pruitt has done an outstanding job with that defense.
