    first post? Yes this has been talked about for days. And telling him he would be the starter next year would have been a lie I am glad Muschamp didn't lie to him

    Yeah telling Tyler he'd be the start seems like a pretty terrible strategy.

    yeah first post. You had your first yourself, didn't you?

    Why should that be a lie? Tyler is the best QB since Timmy.

    Because it was going to be an open competition that he would probably lose to the more talented player.

    It shouldn't be an open competition; Tyler is better than JD. Of course it is just my opinion. I think the old ball coach praised Tyler too. For a while I thought south Carolina might be Tyler's destination; he would do great there; he just played like a Shane to me. Then I realized that Dylan Thompson would be back.

    Seems he'd do well in the Mountain West conf. or similar. A bit of a step down, but perhaps he could start and shine.

    This simply defies belief on several levels.

    This whole thing is like chasing rabbits down holes...it's a moot point, no need wasting energy on it.

    Thanks for making another thread about this. We've only been talking about it relentlessly for the past couple of days.

    Tyler has always looked good in the spring! His success at the beginning changed when his play changed. Coach Pease coached him down and stopped calling plays to support his talent. Open competition was something he had for 4 years but he was a Gator and wanted his earned degree!
    Congratulation Tyler a true Gator!

    First post OK, second post not so much. TM is not a good QB. Also, he's full of bs. He has To go to a program that offers something that UF does not, wants something interesting, and wants to go into sports management.

    I'm glad that he had the good judgement to get his degree and graduate, shows that he took the opportunity seriously and made the best of it. I still find his decision to leave a bit puzzling, though. If he wants to be a coach someday he would have a great opportunity to either (1) compete and maybe win the starting job at Florida or (2) spend time at one of the top programs in the country as it undergoes a major change in offensive philosophy, not dissimilar to what hight school coaches have to do quite often. So, despite what he says about his leaving a text message, etc, I honestly think he took the lack of attention from Muschamp to heart and let that influence his decision to some extent. Hopefully it will turn out that he lands at a program with a good approach for preparing coaches as well as an opportunity to play one year as a starter. He seems like a good guy and he was fun to watch when he played (until he got hurt).

    Yep, he looked fantastic leading us to victory over three bad teams.

    I think that statement is total garbage! I'm not saying that he is a great quarterback, but before his shoulder injury, he certainly was a good quarterback. I simply judge him by looking at his play before his injury, which was very good. Yes, his good games were against some of our weaker competitors, but Driskel often looked bad against weak competition, and Brantley looked bad against almost all of our opponents. And while it would have been tougher to play well against the better teams, it was impossible to play well against any team when a quarterback's throwing shoulder is injured.

    Some of you are horribly unfair to Murphy because quite a few of you fail to properly take into account what should be the expected effects of the injury to his throwing shoulder. To say that the performance drop was mostly due to playing against better competition is to ignore the injury. Yes....suddenly he had low velocity on his throws and was inaccurate......but why did this happen? Playing better competition does NOT make one's velocity and accuracy disappear!

    Regardless of Driskel's overall better physical tools (even so, Murphy is much more elusive than Driskel), Murphy performed better when not injured. I predict that next fall, some of you Murphy detractors will wish he were still in Gainesville because in spite of his superior physical tools, Driskel has pretty consistently shown that he does not have "it".

    The two prior starting quarterbacks looked bad against quite a few of the bad teams we played. The same cannot be said about Murphy.

    I'm sure he thought he'd get a better shot at a starting position somewhere else.

    Definitely agree with your closing. Wish him well.
