Found September 05, 2012 on The Bull Gator:
The Florida Gators had a number of questions entering the 2012 college football season. Among those was the one everyone wanted answered the most: who will be the starting quarterback? Jacoby Brissett? Or Jeff Driskel? Through the Spring and then the Fall, the question wasn’t answered. Head coach Will Muschamp and offensive coordinator Brent Pease never waivered in their resolve to keep us guessing. Most likely, because they themselves didn’t know. Not long before the season opener against the Bowling Green Falcons, we learned Brissett and Driskel would each get one quarter in the first half.

Driskel and teammates think he’s ready

A year ago, Jeff Driskel rocked his Gators jersey as the new kid, the freshman — the guy with something to prove. The quarterback, straight out of Oviedo’s Paul J. Hagerty High, even enrolled in January of last year to make his impact early. By the time the 2011 season started rolling, Driskel started grinding. But Florida’s future 2012 starting quarterback wasn’t always ahead.
