Who did we lose on offense from last year? How is our O so much worse?

    We lost Gilly & Hammond, correct? Anyone else?

    I realize Halapio & Chaz Green are hurt, and Dunker got kicked off the team, but with the addition of Tyler Moore, Max Garcia, etc, those o-line losses are negated.

    So how are we not only not much better than last year, but it looks like we've regressed. Is this all on Jeff Driskel's ears?

    Our offense is statistically better. That really can't be disputed. The turnovers hurt real bad.

    First, why another thread on this?

    Second, the O has moved the ball much better than last year. The problem is they seem to be color blind given the inordinate number of turnovers.

    It didn't really get worse. It just didn't get any better.

    Strip drills and goal line O for practice.

    That is all

    How is the offense worse? Last year we turned the ball over against uga. This year we did it vs Miami. If that's the end of it, the offense will be significantly better than last year. If we keep doing it, then yes, this offense will be much worse. But I doubt we have another game like this... that would just be absurd.

    Tyler Moore's penalties offset those we lost with Xavier Nixon, so yeah, it should theoretically be a wash on the o-line.

    Jordan Reed was a mismatch against opposing defenses!
    We need to use more of our highly rated TE recruits (i.e Kent Taylor, Colin Thompson)! Also, give Taylor more carries!

    Agreed, they don't seem to like to spread the playing time and ball around enough like they do with the D

    It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

    We lost our best offensive player- Jordan Reed, there's a reason he was the only guy other than Gilly to even sniff the All-SEC team.
