Driskel is not a pro-style QB. He is a run first QB.

Ok, what? Just because he is mobile doesn't mean he isn't pro-style. He is 100% a pass-first QB. Brisset is the dual-threat QB.

Kind of predictable, but fug it. I've had to miss watching my team in a BCS game for two years and I'm giddy for what could happen this season. I wan't nothing more for USC to send the biggest fug you to the NCAA by winning the Natty under sanctions. It's definitely possible with the weapons Barkley has, a solid running game from Curtis "Moody" McNeal and D.J. Morgan, and a defense that has elite speed and talent again. A lot will hinge on how the D-Line copes with the loss of Perry and Harris, but USC may very well have the best LB corp, and one of the best secondaries next year. Should be an exciting year at the Coliseum....

I guess run first QB is a bit strong of a term but he is most certainly a Dual QB, that's why Urban wanted him. He want to use his running ability to run the speed option. In HS he had almost as many running yards as passing yards.

As far as Brissett being a dual-threat, that's crazy. He is not fleet of foot. He's not what you call a mobile QB. He is likes to stay in the pocket.

You have to look at Driskel's designed running plays vs. his passing plays. He threw from the pocket or in roll-out situations far more than he ran on any designed runs. I do acknowledge that he can make things happen when the pocket breaks down. He is a pass-first QB who can run. He is similar to an Andrew Luck.

Brisset is definitely a dual-threat QB. Brisset is to UF what Cam Newton is to Carolina. A QB that has a nose for the first down marker, but isn't exceptionally fast. Watching Driskel run is a little different. He is more athletic, but he doesn't seem to be able to read defenders when running. That's why I think he is a pocket QB if he wants to succeed.

I hope that I am wrong about Muschamp and I hope he can show improvement this year. I think it's pretty clear that Jeremy Foley wants to see significant improvement this year. Muschamp's seat is very warm. I think we all remember Urban Meyer's 9-3 and 13-1 records in his first two seasons at UF.

I bet you want your stab at an SEC team in that national championship :lol:

I like USC to win it all this year as well. They have a really good team with a favorable, but at times challenging schedule.

The only way USC winning the title could be better, is USC winning the title on NCAA sanctions against an undefeated SEC team....

The only team that I feel can make it outside of an SEC team is Oklahoma. In that case, you will beat the piss out of them like the good old days.

It may be more likely that it's a one-loss SEC team, but an SEC team for sure.

We didn't have many, if any, designed QB runs under Weiss. But his attributes point to doing well in an option offense. He is much more suited for the spread option than Brissett, that's the last thing I'll say on that matter.

Driskel ran for a lot of yards because he was a 6'3 230lb QB. Even in high school, the first guy that touched him almost always brought him down. He doesn't see the field like a runner, because he is not one. That was one of his weaknesses out of high school when it came to playing in the spread. That's why people gave Urban grief for trying to sign John Brantley 2.0. He even said in recruiting interviews that he is more comfortable staying in the pocket and likes to run as a last resort.

Brisset was definitely more of a running QB than Driskel in high school. I even got to see 2 games at W.T. Dwyer while there was a UF scout there. It does appear from what you linked that Brissett wanted to become a more pro-style QB, but that is certainly not what he was in high school.

It's hard to judge either player based on last year, because the pocket broke down so often for both of them. Receivers couldn't get open. It was just a bad situation for them both to be in. I certainly see Brissett being the starter when Bowling Green comes into town. He appears to have a much better attitude and appears to be more of a leader. If he can work on the consistency of his throwing motion, he can be pretty good. He has a big body and can make plays with his feet.

Also, if Brisset does start at least we can be assured he will take shots down field. He has a big arm and uses it (for better or worse).

I just can't agree with that and don't see what you are seeing. Brissett didn't run for nearly as many yards as Driskel. Driskel is most certainly a mobile QB and uses that to his advantage. If he ran for so many yards being 6'3" 230 you would have to assume he has to be pretty quick and sees the field well. Watch his HS highlights he was out-maneuvering people way more than running people over.

I haven't seen this critiques of Urban recruiting Driskel and being another Brantley.

I do agree on Brissett's arm. But I also like him because he fits our system better.
