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

You have to look at Driskel's 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.
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.
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.
Driskel doesn't seem to be able to read defenders while running? Did you just make that up to take away from Driskel's running ability. I have no idea where that comes from. Dude ran for 1,300 + yards his senior year. He takes off knowing he can turn to his running ability. It's his security blanket. Brisset is nothing like Cam, he can't create separation on his runs like Cam does. He's not that fast. He is the one that likes to stay in the pocket. He has been noted for his calm and collective manner in the pocket as he doesn't get flustered. Much better pocket presence than Driskel has shown. Driskel would rather run than stay in the pocket. Brissett scrambles to pass, Driskel scrambles to run.
Here is article about it: http://www.al.com/sp...brissett_c.html
They have very different styles.
Former coach Urban Meyer recruited Driskel to play the spread option, and he reminded the staff and fans a little bit of former Heisman Trophy winner The Golden Calf of Bristol.
Brissett, meanwhile, signed with Florida because of former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, who runs a pro-style system. Brissett is more of a pocket passer, and the speedier Driskel is more likely to tuck it and run.
"I'd rather stay in the pocket and throw the ball and let somebody else get hit," Brissett said.
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.
Although Zook wasn't the best of coaches he was a great recruiter. He left UF in a much better state than Urban left UF.

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.

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.

I feel I'm being pretty optimistic here but I'm really not sure what to expect from this years squad. We're replacing our whole offense pretty much but because of the system Lincoln Riley runs I think we'll reload just fine. The improvement will be on the defensive side of the ball where, for the first time since Ruffin McNeil has been there, will be a strong unit.
I predicted a win @UNC because UNC will be rebuilding under a new coach. We have played there a few times in the last few years and I think our players and team will finally be ready to walk away with a win. There is actually a lot of coaching turnover in C-USA which could also bring different results. Its still May, so these are just my whimsical predictions. Either way, GO PIRATES!
