Fans, media members react to Kyle Trask's awful 3-interception first quarter
No Kyle Pitts. No Kadarius Toney. No Trevon Grimes. No Jacob Copeland.
It was going to be a tough task for Florida QB Kyle Trask against Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl without his top receivers, but no one saw this coming.
So far in the first quarter, Trask has thrown 3 interceptions, including 1 that was returned by the Sooners for a touchdown. Oklahoma leads 17-3 with time winding down in the opening quarter.
Fans are wondering if he should have opted out of the game like the other Florida players. There’s also plenty of speculation about his NFL Draft stock.
Here’s a look at what’s being said about the Florida star quarterback:
Kyle Trask shouldn’t have played in the #CottonBowl with so many guys opting out. Sometimes you need to be selfish.

Put in Jones if you’re going to do that high school crap on back to back plays

Can he turn things around? There’s still plenty of time, but this has been a nightmare of a start for the Gators and for Trask, in general.
