When comparing their wrs to ours, a guy who I expect to have less than 10 catches on the season in Njoku doesn’t come to mind.
Agreed. Franks was not impressive at all last year but no doubt he should improve in year 2 of that system. Also, do we really have room to be talking about another teams QB? Yeah we have 3 guys with talent but they have not shown anything yet.What kills me is people consistently harp on how bad Frank's was last year, to say we'll thrash them this year because he was THAT bad.
At what point do those people consider that he had an offseason to train, mature, & get better just like ours did. It's very likely that he becomes slightly better than last year. He won't be RGIII or anything like that, but I expect him to improve some. Not regress like our QBs because of lousy QB coaching
Exactly! Frank's at least improved towards the end of the year. Our dudes...ehh...we have no clue what any of our QBs can be but many are supremely confident.Agreed.

I'm hoping this is true. Good job on the research & thank youFranks completed 58% of his passes last season in an offense where 90% of his passes are bubble screens.
He threw 14 of his 24 touchdown passes against Charleston So. (5), Colorado St. (2), So. Carolina (1), Idaho (3), and fsu (3)
Care to know the defensive rankings of those teams?
Charleston So. -
Colorado St. - 111th
So. Carolina - 84th
Idaho - 100th
fsu - 80th
Take away those five cupcakes and he competed 54% of his passes for 1,400 yards, 10 tds and 5 picks.
Two of the top three best QBs in the ACC (Bryce Perkins and Daniel Jones) had their worst games of the year against our D last season.
I will concede that their receivers will be a challenge for our young secondary. They are talented, experienced and deep at wideout.
However, Franks is a bum. He can't get the ball to them. Our front seven will be in his butt all game long.
No he didn't. The teams he played towards the end of the year were straight garbage on D.Exactly! Frank's at least improved towards the end of the year. Our dudes...ehh...we have no clue what any of our QBs can be but many are supremely confident.

See my post above.
OP....I agree with most of what you said....I'll add Franks has the ability to hurt our D with his legs...the way our D attacks there will definitely be open lanes....we must contain him throughout...First and foremost all the “experts” giving early analysis on this game seem all wrong. I’m surprised with what I saw on tape vs what people believe will happen 8/24.
I watched the UF spring game to start things off. You’d have never known the “strength” of the team is the secondary and the “weakness” is the OL. The tape looks the EXACT opposite.
The strength of the UF team is by far and way the WR’s. They get open and most importantly catch the football. They are way ahead of the UM WRs in simply catching the ball this spring. Let me be nice by saying Evidence Njoku has stone hands after watching Traz and Otown. UF has a clear advantage here so we need JT4 and Brevin healthy to match that production. They dropped one ball the entire game and it was somewhat contested.
Here’s the good stuff. The UF DL got zero pressure except for a handful of plays on the supposedly awful OL in the spring game. It was so non-existent that UF beat reporters were bombarding Mullet about it in his PC after the game. He didn’t have a good answer. I think UF’s DL and secondary is severely overrated minus one player in Henderson. The safety’s were burned the majority of the time against the big slow TE’s. They will have no idea what hit them with Will and Brevin.
Overall, the UF offense without pressure is much more fluid than Um’s right now. I’m hoping Enos just kept things really vanilla etc etc but UF looked miles ahead on offense. IMO UM needs to figure out the QB situation sooner than later and Enos needs to start catering the offense to that guy. That being said, I think UF is in for a big surprise with UM’s defense. They won’t be able to run and Diaz blitzes will give them fits. They will have to beat us with big plays down the field. That’s what they are good at so we need to prep for it. I have no doubt Gurvan and Bubba are much better than UF’s safety’s they play against in practice. They couldn’t cover anybody.
First, this has nothing to do with Perry and Rosier.He played bad teams & some decent teams...
Rosier & Perry played bad teams & still didnt produce that well.
Not saying dude will be top tier, but he should be marginally better
