Congratulations! Go Gators!

Driskel is the REAL DEAL baby!!! GO GATORS!!!

Man, I didn't see this coming. Very pleasantly surprised, although looking back those are pretty impressive stats for this game. To me it seemed the game was easy for Driskel. Guess this is why he was the # 1 rated QB in his class. Thing is I think he can do a lot better. Look out SEC we have something special going on in Gainesville. Go Gators!!
