Florida QB Jeff Driskel Leaves Tennessee Game On Crutches


In the first quarter of #19 Florida’s game today against Tennessee, QB Jeff Driskel went down with an ankle injury and walked to the locker room on crutches after throwing a pick-6. Florida’s offense has been anything but dominant throughout the early portion of this season so losing their starting QB to injury for an undetermined amount of time only increases the likelihood of a Kentucky upset next Saturday although the school has yet to announce the extent of Driskel’s injury. Redshirt junior backup QB Tyler Murphy had never thrown a pass in his Gator career until today. 

Florida is currently up on the Vols 17-7 in what has been one of the ugliest starts to a college football game I’ve seen in quite awhile, with a combined 7 turnovers in the first 30 minutes of game time. Also, Florida’s QB got hit in the facemask by a snap from the center while he wasn’t looking. Confusion everywhere, but Driskel will be one player to watch in the days leading up to next Saturday.

    This game is huge. UT recruits are showing signs of wavering. Another humiliation today, combined with the upcoming NCAA investigations, could loosen up some commits.

    UT’s hurry up offense isn’t working.

    We need a reliable quarterback to pull off any upsets. Doubtful we will have solid performance at the QB position this year–but the good news is Barker is coming..

    When the lights come on at Commonwealth goods can happen for the Cats. This being Stroops first good under the lights it could something special.
    It has happened in the past.

    “losing their starting QB to injury for an undetermined amount of time only increases the likelihood of a Kentucky upset next Saturday”….WHAT??? Increases the likelihood of a UK upset? Doesn’t there have to be a likelihood of an upset to begin with for that likelihood to be increased? FL will be favored by 2 TD’s even with Driskell out. FL is about to inrease its 24-10 lead without Driskell. Are the KSR writers dropping LSD today? Absurd.

    UF has 2 TOs & their starting qb went down. yet their D has only given up 3 pts. not sure we can score on them even if they cant throw the ball & we turn them over.

    Fla bear Tn by 14, who beat WKU by 32, who beat UK by 9. Therefore UF 55-UK 00. Simple math.

    Muschamp just said Driskell is out for the season. Murphy will be their QB.

    Gator’s qb out for season, things could be interesting under the lights, just saying Cats have a slim chance. Gators favored, but you never know, excepts for a few. You have to the faith.
    GO CATS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    10 – By your logic, since UL only beat UK by 14, Florida would beat UL by 41 this season.

    Also, shouldn’t you be worried about whatever middle school team UL plays next week instead of trolling this site?

    Most important part of this game is that the gayturds have several injuries in their secondary. Cats will need an effective passing attack to pull the upset as running the ball will be very very hard. Lets hope their new quarterback will crack under a hostel crowd so the stands need to be full and loud. Cats may not get a better chance at an upset this season than this.

    Really feel like Stoops needs this win badly after WKU, and I think he gets it.

    Cats have a legit shot in every remaining game except UGA, Bama and USC IMO. Hopefully we can still see them get to 4 wins this year. 2-10 would be bad.

    I think UF’s backup QB, Murphy, looks better than Driskel ever did.

    Well this just guarantees that Murphy will have a breakout game and look like manziel when he plays us. Best chance ever for us to end the streak though

    With their starting QB out, we have a shot …. a slim one, but a shot none the less. Murphy definitely improved as the game continued, but he has to play against our defense! HA!

    Unless we plan to cancel the Louisville series, the only way we will beat Louisville again is to beat Florida and get their coach fired. They will go after Strong and he won’t turn them down. So this is THE game….Ride or Die Stoops.

    Murphy seemed determined – made a lot happen. In the immediate on-field post-game interview w/Muschamp & Murphy, given his body language and non-eye contact w/Murphy, it seemed Muschamp was not sold on him and even appeared doubtful…. which was just wrong. Obviously, KENTUCKY needs to take advantage of the opportunity to rattle Murphy often. This should be interesting.

    I think your prediction that Kentucky’s only chance of beating Louisville is for Strong to leave, is a gross overstatement, brother. It’s pretty clear that Joker left an absolute mess for Stoops and his staff to clean up. I think it will probably be at least two to three seasons before Kentucky has a chance to compete with the upper tier SEC teams, assuming Stoops can keep up the recruiting pace. But, let’s not confuse Louisville for an “upper tier” SEC team, brother! One upset of an SEC “big boy” doesn’t automatically put you at that level. Most people, especially Card fans, fail to remember the 12 game regular season leading up to that upset of Florida. Louisville didn’t look like a Top 10 team during the season. Heck, they didn’t even look like a Top 20 team until the Florida game!

    This is arguably the best team that UofL has ever fielded. Yet, a Kentucky team, coming off a disastrous 2-10 season last year, played the 7th ranked Cardinals to a two TD game. If Kentucky doesn’t fumble inside the Louisville 15 yard line right before the half; and, Kentucky’s WRs don’t drop multiple wide open passes, that game could’ve gone down to the wire.

    I believe Strong is a solid coach. But, I believe the Louisville fans, and Tom Jurich, have gone overboard in anointing him the next Nick Saban, Urban Meyer or Les Miles. In his first two seasons, he was a “pedestrian” 14-11, with losses to Kentucky, FIU and Marshall (Heck, Joker won 11 games in his first 2 years, against much tougher schedules). In season three (last season), he does go 10-2 in the regular season. But, you have to take a closer look at that 10-2 record. The two losses were a blowout loss to a slightly above average Syracuse team; and, a bad loss at home to a miserable UConn team. They defeated three teams (FIU, Southern Miss and South Florida) with a combined 6-30 record, by 13 points, and could’ve easily lost all three of those games. This was not a dominant football team by any means.

    Bridgewater is a very special and talented player, and I personally enjoy watching him play (except against Kentucky). But, Bridgewater is gone after this season, and though Louisville has other talented players, they will not have the offensive potential that they had last season and this season with Bridgewater under center. Going forward, I like Kentucky’s chances against Louisville the next 3 or 4 seasons.

    Yeah, we were close….like the moon is close to the Earth. Even at half , no one in stadium thought we would win. We just wanted to keep it close to make lville feel bad about themselves.
    Love ur optimism, sounds good on cyberspace but we all really know half our recruits won’t make it to campus once this season unfolds like last years.
    I’m already starting to understand why tech didn’t care if brown left. And Strong is overrated but he’s got a nice niche and pipeline that allow him to get players that should be in our league. We won’t beat them next year and after that Stoops could be a
    lameduck coach. But I hope you’re right and I for once is wrong Brother!!!!!
