    Basically it was a summary of all the threads on here since Saturday night. Great defense, mediocre to horrible offense. Coaches don't want Driskel to run because he might get hurt. Too many turnovers to win. Miami presented the formula to beat Florida's defense. Poor coaching.

    Also said an average quarterback would be better than Driskel, but Driskel is the coach's choice because of his ability to run the ball. Problem is they don't want him to run the ball.

    But that may have been because of his injury which we found out about after the game.

    D's strategy--on passing downs, bring some heat on driskel, bait him into throws into coverage, which he will do.

    What is the formula? Go +4 in TO margin? Or was it to rack up 200 yards total offense?

    I'm with you, except... maybe to catch us early before we start playing.

    120 yards of offense and 14 points in the first quarter.

    After that we completely shut them down until we gave them the ball on our four yard line. That one has to be on the offense.

    Three quarters of absolutely stellar play... after a bad first quarter.

    Driskel is our QB, and minus injury he is going to be the QB all year. Is he perfect? No, but few are. Bama's QB -- supposed a Heisman candidate to start the year -- went 10-23 for 110 yards, one TD and one pick. Driskel threw for almost three times as many yards. So I don't see him as the problem. His two picks were bad decisions, for sure, but if we're gonna bust his nuts over that, then we need to laud his 22 completions and almost 300 yards passing.

    About the only thing they taught the other teams is to play for the run and if we pass, the plays aren't going to lead to TDs. And so we play for long drives and may self destruct before then. Otherwise, not much new news.

    If 400 yards is mediocre to horrible offense then I like my offense mediocre to horrible.

    UF isn't going to turn it over 5 times every game.

    It feels like a lot of people didn't actually watch the game and just saw the final score and made assumptions
