Based on the struggles at the quarterback position at Florida, it’s safe to say the Gators wish former QB Will Grier was still around.

However, he’s now at West Virginia, where he’s led the Mountaineers to an impressive 4-2 record and the No. 23 spot in the AP Poll.

Grier appeared on the “Campus Conversation” podcast on ESPN and was asked about the differences between the SEC and Big 12. Grier’s appearance begins around the 27:20 mark of the podcast, where you can hear him say he doesn’t think there are many differences between the two conferences:

“There’s not a whole lot to me,” Grier said. “I just try to focus on playing the game. I’ve always just played whoever lines up against us. It was fun playing in the SEC. It’s interesting because, in the SEC, there was this hype about it, that it’s the best league in the country or it’s the best conference in the country, whatever. It’s part of the reason that I went to Florida. I wanted to play with the best.

“But to be honest, there’s not a whole lot of difference in mind between them and anybody else I’ve played so far this year. It’s playing football, and there’s a lot of good players all over the country and a lot of good conferences and I think you’re starting to see it balance itself out across the country. So I don’t see much of a difference.”

Grier also credited Big 12 defenses for being better than most people give them credit for.

The former Gator is playing well, and the Mountaineers have a good chance to finish higher in the polls than Florida this year, which will only make Florida fans miss him more.
