    Tranfer to a school where he is the clear favorite to start. Remember he will not be ready for spring ball, so a P5 school is out of the question. G5 school that is willing to wait for him and apply for a 6th year medical RS. That will give him 1-2 yrs to prove he is over the injury and improve his skills.

    Selfishly I wouldve liked to see if he couldve been a useful TE like Jordan Reed. That wouldve been disrespectful to him though on many levels and I wish him the best as this is the right move for him professionally. He will always be a Gator and nobody can say he didnt give us all he had. No matter the end result that is ALL we can ask from a player who comes here. Give it all. He did.

    And I for one I'm glad for that.

    I love FF, but it's time for him to move on. I appreciate his contributions.

    Wish him the best. I figured 1 of the 3 would choose to leave and was hoping it wasn't going to be EJ. This is probably the best outcome for everyone.

    Que FSU response in 3...2...1...... Whorechant poster that knows someones friend who knows some booster claims FSU will be announcing he is "all in" for their QB next year but FSU is waiting to announce the Stoops, $85,000,000.01 athletic facility and Franks FSU signing on the same day...."tomorrow...youll see."

    In all honesty Trask has been amazing considering he is really a redshirt freshman based on his starts. He has been fantastic. Oddly enough I think EJ just fits the system so much better for Mullen and I really wouldnt be surprised to see EJ claim the starting job next year. Good luck to FF...the guy has heart enough to shut us up and may have enough to play at the next level.

    EJ needs to work on his ball placement before he will be named starter.

  10. I loved seeing him grow under Dan Mullen, and I loved watching his leadership during hard times—even after his injury. I feel bad for him, because he genuinely enjoys being a Gator. I hope he goes somewhere that he can flourish, but not play the Gators.

    Thanks for being the QB for regime change and making the universe right again!!!!

    Now go work on that breaking ball and I'll come watch you in Fenway soon wearing the O&B.

    Nothing but love, brother.

    Best of luck to him

    Oklahoma may be looking for a veteran QB, although his injury may preclude it

    A comment from Mullen made it sound like he would miss spring practice, so he would probably be far behind the other QBs.

    I don’t think he’ll be healthy yet for the combines.

    I think he will be getting his degree, so it would be good for him to go elsewhere.

    This makes me sad. Becaise I am a Franks fan...and he gave us his all..

    But...also a little nervous. We have to keep EJ away from the portal even more now.

    I’ve always admired FF for his heart and what he did for this program. I wish the young man nothing but the best wherever he goes.

    Wouldn’t he have to sit for a year?

    I can't see any other way for this to have shaken out. CDM would have to be a fool to start Franks over Trask next year, and as others have mentioned, this will hopefully help keep EJ here, because we sure do need him to stick around.

    I like Franks - I actually like him a lot. I was getting tired of the weird, adversarial relationship between him, the fans, and the media though. Even though I personally like the guy the whole thing was taking a toll on me and an uncontroversial quarterback has been a nice change of pace. I want to see Franks pull a Driskel and light it up somewhere and go have a great future in the league, because he works hard enough to deserve it.
