Step aside DBUs, QBs have social media buzzing in first half of LSU-Florida
Ahead of Saturday, we heard a lot about the LSU-Florida “DBU” debate. Through two quarters, however, the quarterbacks have been the stars of the show, marching their teams up and down the field.
All three quarterbacks, Florida’s Kyle Trask and Emory Jones and LSU’s Joe Burrow, have impressed the many college football fans and media members watching the top-10 showdown in Death Valley.
Burrow is boosting his NFL stock. Trask is showing he can handle the premiere SEC hostile environment. Jones is showing why Florida coach Dan Mullen is finding ways to work him into the game.
The current stat lines:
Burrow – 10/11, 121 passing yards, 2 TD; 4 rush, 22 yards
Trask – 11/18, 141 passing yards 2 TD; 5 rush, 28 yards
Jones – 1/2, 1 yard, TD; 6 rushes, 32 yards
Here’s a sample of what’s being said on Twitter:
Joe Burrow is the best QB in college football and its not even really close. #Heisman

If your NFL team needs a QB and you don’t want Joe Burrow there’s something wrong with you.

If Burrow continues playing like this… I would not be surprised if a couple teams have him slotted at QB1. https://t.co/h13gkwRvHQ

When NFL scouts go to games they have binoculars focused on QBs as they come off the field. After that last @LSUfootball TD, coaches and teammates were going out of their way to dab up Joe Burrow. That doesn’t always happen. Burrow also head-butted his fullback. He’s got “it”.

Joe Burrow. You can’t stop him. You can only hope to contain him. #UFvsLSU

Trask and Jones both look good. Definitely like Jones in the red zone with Trask’s fumbling issues in the pocket.

Right, Trask is good but I really want this game and I believe Emory is the best fit.

Kyle Trask looks like a seasoned senior. https://t.co/ERDwUZIhoo

Probably why he wasn't looking his way, sure looked open from here, though. Trask is playing great.

I’m so happy with Trask and Jones tbh. What Mullen has done with these QBs is nothing short of amazing.

Trask/Emory, this 2 QB package is working

I HATE to say this but joe burrow is a good qb. His accuracy is ridiculous.

Emory Jones and Trask have been a huge blessing for the Gators. Offense hasn’t looked this good in years. Coach Mullen is no joke
