The Gators – despite a near miracle finish – have definitely regressed in recent weeks from mid-season form. Driskel hasn’t improved at the quarterback position, and Brissett might see some playing time next week against Jacksonville State.

You can’t complain too much with a 9-1 record. But, it’s a strange 9-1.
