    Here's to Kyle Trask getting that big 'Burrow boost' in his QB numbers next year...

    A big congrats to Kyle...
    What a way to step up and keep the Gators going without losing a step!
    I wonder what kind of numbers he would have put up if he had played the entire season??..I'm pretty sure that he would have overtaken quite a few of those other guys in the yaredage and TD departments.

    Next year is gonna be fun...I really hope that Grimes and Toney are smart enough to stay for another year...between them, Copeland, Pitts, and Pouncey, plus Wells and the others...we wouldn't miss a beat.

    And so much more impressive given the fact that we abandoned any semblance of a traditional running game. Those yards in the air were not as easy to come by!

    That is some good company he is in. Just unreal what he has accomplished. And I feel like he still has a lot of improving to do in terms of pocket presence and deep ball accuracy. Sky is the limit.

    Wouldn't have predicted it but I'm not that surprised. Followed him since UF first got interested in him. Loved his high school clips Just a very poised, polished QB.

    Wonder if any of those other guys haven’t started since their Freshman days of HS.

    Be interesting to see him with a respectable running game that teams need to commit an extra player to the box.

    I am flabbergasted and bumfuzzled at the same time. He has been lights out for us and probably the best story of college football this year. So glad he is getting deserved props.

    And.... what a reflection on our head coach to have him so prepared to lead this team.
