Thank you Josh your opinion means more to me lol.
I think anybody who watched Fla get trounced by Lousville will keep there mouth shut backing up anybody on Fla offense. lmao
When one is an all American who hasn't done squat and the other is a nobody who hasn't done squat, the burden of proof is on the nobody.
I'm as excited as anyone about the new offense, but to puff up that we are suddenly a superior football option to Florida is just a little bit of hyperbole right now.
So When did I say we were a better team than Florida?
Actually I said Florida has a better team but I like Max as a Qb more than what they have shown me.
All American in highschool.
Nobody's going to defend Driskel, myself included. But it's not like we have precedence of having someone better. Future looks bright, but I still fail to see how smith gives us a huge pitch right now.
Seems moot if Timmons is leaning our way.
Max was leading the SEC in passing before his injury. It's not like has he has "proven nothing."
How long was the dude out there?
TacosMcGee....I think you are missing the point. Rankings are rankings. There are so many examples of how kids who have been 4 and 5 stars have under achieved and kids who are 2 and 3 stars have over achieved. We can look in our backyard at guys like Cobb for an example.
Answer me this. What kind of system did Max play in high school? If you knew, you would understand why he was a 2 star coming out. I have always thought, from day one, that Max had the POTENTIAL to be special. Like Josh said, he LEAD THE SEC IN PASSING before his injury. Has Driskel ever lead any statistical category in the SEC.
But I think the point is this. Florida is not a passing system. Their offense works to get speed to the corners and a heavy dose of up the middle running. Driskel would probably be better in a different system but for the one he plays in, he is really not that good. I would take Aaron Murray or AJ McCarron any day of Driskel. Just like I would take Max, even when he is throwing to Collins and Robinson.
Until you quit looking at rankings/stars and comparing them with others, you will probaly never understand.
Exactly. Rankings matter as a whole. But some kids develope and some dont. one thing you cannot get out of watching 17 yr old kids is work ethic.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference (Frost).
You are responding to yourself....
Fact is that the stance that Smith is better than any QB Florida has will be one unique to UK fans.
Timmons seems to favor UK regardless.
Timmons will miss the boat if he doesn't get on board. That is if he wants to come to UK.
