The defense has been rebuilt. Definitely, Gator fans are going to want to check it out.
Oh, and the play-makers are better at wide receiver. Those will be fun to see.
The offensive line is better. And the running game is solid. And …
Oh, never mind. You want to see the quarterbacks, don’t you?
If there is one overwhelming point of interest to this year’s Gators, who have their spring game tonight, it is the quarterbacks. With returner Luke Del Rio out, the competition has boiled down to two quarterbacks: Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask. One or the other of them has a chance to be the quarterback the Gators have been looking for since Tim Tebow left.
“I will say I’m excited how they’re playing,” coach Jim McElwain says. “It’s been good, we’ve been able to stretch it really good.
“They’ve done a great job, and yet, I kind of expected them to.
Franks threw three interceptions in last year’s spring game. This year, with increased knowledge of the offense, Gator fans can expect a smoother quarterback. He has shortened his release and improved on his decision making.
Whether it is Franks or Trask – and the job is just beginning – the Gators hope to have more of an impact player at the position than in the last two seasons.
