Gators Continue To Prepare For Tennessee

By on September 12th, 2012

Two nationally ranked teams will play Saturday when Tennessee hosts Florida in a key SEC football game for both teams.

Both are unbeaten early and both teams feel like they have something to prove after down years a season ago.   And Florida has beaten Tennessee the last seven times they have met as well.

Gator offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Tuesday that the debut of Jeff Driskel as Florida’s starting quarterback was solid but that he had many things to do better including not holding on to the ball as long.   Pease said six of the eight sacks the Gators suffered last Saturday could have been avoided if Driskel had thrown the ball away when out of the pocket.

Pease added that as Driskel handles the playbook, he will be given more of it to digest and use in game situations.

Driskel echoed what Pease said about him, saying he did lock in on primary receivers too often and that he needed to throw the ball away to avoid taking sacks.

    What a waste six out of eight. All he does is replay. It’s the fear of losing his youth.Might as well make movies and get paid instead having to take pills for10 days to recover. Reoccurring does it hurt yet.
