    While it would look bad I wish UF would block him.
    Murphy owes more to UF than UF owes to him.

    He'll never be a Gator in my eyes again.
    Selfish child like move IMO.

    Where does he think he is going to go? Ok, murphy did a nice job under the circumstances...showed some heart....but really? I would be shocked if a noteable school contacts him.....mcneese state, Idaho, maybe UCONN...good luck...

    What exactly does he owe to the University? He's been here through 2 Head coaches, 3 offensive coordinators, and you think he owes it to the University to stay for 1 year to learn an entirely brand new offense just because....? There's also no guarantee he will start. He was buried behind at one point 3 QBs ahead of him and you say he owes it to Florida to stay?

    Sounds like you're the selfish one as opposed to Murphy. Let him go play elsewhere.

    He's not starting anywhere else either.
    UF gave him an opportunity to earn a degree; a opportunity he took and that will benefit him for the rest of his life. He gained some attention and recognition that he could have used as an asset, but instead is burning bridges as he leaves town. News flash for Tyler, he's not going to be playing on Sundays.

    Isn't being part of a team, being a Gator, and being a man of his word worth anything?

    He's the opposite of the players who return to earn their degrees because being a Gator meant something to them.

    I'm not being selfish. I don't want to see him take another snap here (and didn't want to before he left).

    I guess what I'm saying is GTFO. You don't want to be here, we don't need you.
    But you showed us a little bit more of who you are by bailing on your team.

    Tend to agree here. The high road is admirable; not all of us can pull it off. But that doesn't mean there are not impassioned discussions to have with. Many of us see much of what we're experiencing as unnecessary.

    I'm all for honest, positive posts.

    That's not why he is leaving.
    He stayed here four years. What about the rest of the players this staff moves to transfer? You better hate them as well. I think he knows it will take another act of God to see the field again so he's doing what he wants. His reasons seem very sound to me. He'll see how two different staffs run a program.
    I have little doubt he LOVES UF.
    But to say that you would have to know how he's been managed as a player.

    Haven't read the thread . . .

    IMO he wants a guaranteed starting spot.

    He got an all expense paid education and a degree at a good University, and contributed very little in return. But, I know that is not how it works in today's environment. What can you do for me now? What gaurnatees do I have?

    What exactly DO you want from him? I really don't get it. If you didn't even want him to take another snap before he left then what's the big deal? He wants to play football in a starting role. He did his time here in Gainesville and surpassed any expectation that was given to him.

    He was recruited to be a career backup. And that he did, never got in trouble, and was ready to play when the ship started sinking. And all you're doing is taking cheapshots at someone who played admirably considering what he was brought here to do. Bailing on UF? Man of his word? Get real dude, everyone wants to play ball. No one ever dreams of being a career backup. He wants to play, let him play somewhere else.

    Like I mentioned before, was he ever expected to have a big return on investment? He was riding the pine behind 3 other QBs and all of a sudden we're supposed to be pissed of he wants to go play football elsewhere? Did you lose sleep too when other depth chart scholarship players decide to leave?

    Whether he has the right to go or not is a matter of opinion. I think it sucks pond water that his family is taking pot shots at the program on the way out, and that's a fact.

    UConn was in fact one of the players for his service. He committed to Temple, no? Was also in the running at Syracuse, too.

    In short, all of this was back when he was a 2* guy that nobody ever thought would take a snap at UF. Now that he has and has performed admirably, there are plenty of mid-tier schools who'd give him a shot.

    Is this a joke?

    He should've been the starter over Driskel all along, I don't blame him at all for leaving the mess this program is in right now..

    He was a nice kid, but he was not a starter over Jeff.

    True, but he was not vastly different or inferior to Jeff.

    True.

    He played well until he got the crap beat out of him. I don't know how anyone can really say anything other than he proved himself. Spurrier used to say all the time that other players looked better in practice, but Danny played best when it counted.

    Tyler Murphy looked good in the games before he got hurt. Then he kept going in there for more beatings - coaches seemed to take him out only when his injuries made him ineffective.

    Yes we don't know for sure that is exactly how it went down, but geez can we give a fellow gator the benefit of the doubt? I mean this guy was ready to go for years and then actually made our offense work for awhile.

    Forget about being decent about this. What good is this criticism of him? That doesn't help us in any way. I wish him the best. I'm glad he got a chance to show his stuff if only for a little while and I hope he remembers it fondly.

    His dad was pissed when Muschamp took a couple of pot shots at Tyler and him. He didn't say anything until then.

    With Silberman now leaving also, I'm wondering how many more are planning to jump ship ...
