    Driskel would certainly be one of my guesses for most improved.

    The guy has all the physical tools, was a first year starter last year, and it sounds as if he has done nothing but study and practice, I get the impression football is important to him.

    He was one of the guys UF took to SEC Media Days, the only non-senior, which leads me to believe that he is a teamleader and an example the coaches want the rest of the team to follow.

    He should improve, unless he has some mental limit on reading defenses and going through progressions.

    If so we are going to be a scary team to deal with; if not, I'm afraid not so much.

    Ah, what do they know? I mean, why would he improve as a second-year starter in the second year of a new system with an improved offensive line and improved receivers?

    Yeah, I think he's got some confidence and experience, and that's all he really needs at this point. He's got all the physical skills as other have said.

    I sure hope so. These predictions that tell us UGa or USC will win the East as though it was an established fact are getting really old. I don't mind the predictions, it's that they're made with such certainty and with no mention of even the slightest possibility that an 11-2 team last year might upset that apple cart.

    USC certainly didn't look unbeatable to me last night. We'll see about UGa tomorrow but I think Clemson has a good chance of beating them. If Driskel turns out to be the most improved player he'll need to have better receivers and a better OL than he had last year. And if he does then we're going to be a better team than Clemson.

    Hey, Pal, I'm tired opf you always blasting Driskel. Never a good thing to say about the guy....always jumping on every perceived shortcoming...never giving the guy a break. And for your information, he's already been drafted. :wink:

    But seriously, folks.....if they are right, we'll win the whole bloody thing and they'll all be talking about Muschamp having a chance for two in a row this time next year, instead of his mentor going for three in a row this year.

    Second year starter and second year in new system. Seems like a good choice to me.

    But seriously Jeff is not the player I am worried about. These WR's have to step up

    Cant be true, some here have been to the open practices and said he hasn't improved and others said that he's going to suck.

    Cant be possible that he finally has the same OC for two years in a row, and a stable oline and well a year of starting under his belt.

    It just cant be true.

    Driskel has a cannon for an arm and excellent throwing skills.

    He can run over and get by the defenses.

    He will have the best opportunity ever this year with support cast.

    As long as our defense does it's part.....I'm very confident Driskel and company will do theirs.

    I agree USCe looked very beatable last night.

    It's always been (IMHO) UGA as our biggest game this season. No way we let them win again....NO WAY!!!!! :angry:

    or an Oline that continues to give no time in the pocket.

    not on here often, and can tell by the winking that saying this is pretty ridiculous, but...

    trying to remember a quarterback who became great, but started off as poorly as Driskel

    hope he helps me shut up in about 12 hours :)
