    I always liked Felipe... Would have really liked to see how much more you would have progressed after week 2 and the injury...
    Well as the coaches say, man down, next man up. Kyle has performed productively so as a player, that's a tough situation to be in. (also with a healthy EJ in the wings). Man, I really hope Felipe's rehab goes great and he gets one more opportunity to bring it another year somewhere. Best of luck Felipe. I will always be pulling for you to succeed.
    GO GATORS!!!! ALL CHOMP!!!!

    Link? Personally, I think a Trask vs. Franks showdown in the Swamp would be delicious.

    I don’t think any Juniors have declared yet and I personally think the only one who will be is CJ. Idk why Toney would unless teams are comparing him to a Tyreek Hill type; Grimes could come back and be a 1st rounder with a big year.

    This way when he tells us to shush after a TD it wont be as awkward.

    Franks and Trask were a mirror image of Terry Dean and Danny Wuerffel in 1994 to me.
    Terry Dean was an equally talented QB. Had a rocket for an arm, NFL level talent, and lots of heart. At the time most considered the two of them equals. He tended to scramble when pressured and made a few mistakes, but had a higher ceiling than Wuerffel with his ability to gun the ball.
    Wuerffel had the faster reads, better progression, and he would pass when pressured and then take the late hits. We all know where that got him.
    Will be fun to watch where Franks goes in his career. Mullen's #2 QB Cam Newton got pretty far after transferring.

    I was one of Franks' biggest fans, having watched him play for Wakulla. I always rooted for him to reach his full potential, but as many have already said, there were some awkward things in his development. He certainly improved under Mullen, but nows the time to make a fresh start.

    Remember though....
    Cam didn't so much "transfer" as opposed to "ousted"....that stolen laptop missed the bushes by yards.

    The difference could be that Franks, if he had stayed, could apply for a medical redshirt, then play an additional year after Trask goes.

    My kid went to the Gators summer camp two years ago. He said Felipe was one of the nicest kids there. My son is not a tremendous athlete.... Felipe has no reason to look out for him, other than he’s a genuine human being. I’ll always root for the kid, unless he is playing against Florida.

    He gets some playing time behind one QB, but less playing time behind two QB's who have starting experience and are ahead of him on the depth chart.

    I only wish the best for FF. I personally think he's an exceptionally gifted athlete and has the better fundamentals than Trask, but he does not have the demeanor to be a great QB. His emotions get the better of him, which works at most positions, just not QB.

    Agreed...
    But now....it's all a moot point, seeiing how Franks is gone...
    EJ wll get a lot more playing time alongside Trask next year, and then, the team is his., so he's not going anywhere.
