    Fla receivers seem to catch everything...sometimes making very athletic catches. The catch by Pitts on the TD was a brilliant grab, and he will pose a big challenge for opposing Defenses trying to cover him with linebackers. (See Ga problems last night with ND tight ends).

    Only recall one significant drop (Copeland yesterday) in 4 games.

    And we had 10 different guys catch passes yesterday (including RBs). Great hands all around.

    Spot on. I don’t see Copeland dropping one like that again. Love this receiving corps.

    Gator wide outs are vastly underrated. Since the running game is...uninspiring, their play will be clutch.
    I was sorta disappointed to not see more Jefferson in the game until later.

    Inside your head.
    This group is the key to our success this season. Thankfully we have a backup QB who can get the ball to them. They also block fairly well.

    Grimes had his hands on the ball that could have been a TD but ended up an INT by Alontae Taylor in the end zone last game. Difficult catch, but placed where he could get it. He almost did. But that only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

    If Copeland catches that one, trask goes well over 300 yards with 3tds. It was set up perfect. Really love this year's group as a whole though. Great hands

    Maybe he was used to Franks passes that don’t lead the receiver. Forgot it was “Trask the passer” throwing the ball

    You can just see how dangerous he's going to be moving forward for the Gators. I already love his game.

    I would argue the opposite, Franks would overthrow more deep balls than underthrow them.

    It looked to me that Trask underthrew a little but Copeland slowed down way too much early and had to get back up to speed.

    It was just Trask’s first game as a starter.

    It will be interesting to see how we do against a team that can rush and has a good secondary.

    Exactly. Yeah underthrew that first long pass of the game that Grimes came back for. Don't think he has the arm strength of Franks. More like a Wuerffel. Good enough for all but the longest throws. He floats it a little which is fine when guys are playing off. Let's see what happens against a better class of DBs like at Auburn, LSU and Georgia.

    Cope took his eyes off it to glance at the defender then short armed it. Or at least that was my old drunk yelling at the tv take.

    More importantly, WR recruits are watching bigger passing numbers and 300 yards in the air. Can envision themselves making big plays in the aerial attack.

    I think he performed very well. If he gets the time to throw against the real good team he’s going to surprise. Kyle is very very smart. Doesn’t overthink and will always stay calm. Danny used to amaze me with his calm demeanor after throwing picks. He never wavered. Kyle seems similar. Most think offense is better w Kyle. I always wondered why Mullen went w Franks over Trask but Mullen is a guru at that position so can’t question but I do wonder.
