One of the more frustrating things to watch and hear the announcers talk about yesterday was Jordan Reed at TE for the Gators. In the same recruiting class as Morgan Newton and ranked higher according to Rivals as a dual-threat QB .. Florida figured out his best position to help the team was TE ... why didn't we do the same ??
I feel bad for Morgan who clearly wants to help the team, but has been put in no position to do so the last 2 seasons.
I am sure that Newton is just as much to blame in this situation and probally more so than the coaching staff. I am sure he has been insisting that he play QB.
The difference between UK and UofF is UofF decides where the players are best suited and most needed and if the player doesnt like it he can move on and they will just recruit another high rated player to take his place.
IMO UK must make promises to get a high ranked player and must try harder to retain him after getting him. Boyd and Micah Johnson are two other examples off the top of my head that would have been better suited at another position and insisted on playing that position despite the coaching staff trying to get them to try a more suited position.
