    We have seen Franks’ ceiling.
    Now time to see Trask’s potential.

    Name and town if you wish to opine.

        If Trask doesn't start, it'll be quicker to pull Franks if he Franksifies it.
        Right now vs Mizzou Trask needs a decent long pass for TD, needs to bust through some tackles on the run.

          Trask is more accurate than Franks. Period. Will he start? I doubt it.

              Trask should absolutely start next week. He should have been starting over Franks since Day 1 this season...

                He should. Franks is just terrible. He overthrows everybody and he never sees open receivers.

                  Yes, by default. He's nothing special, but he showed more spark than Franks.

                  We're quarterback hungry. Bigtime.

                    Franks doesn't have quarterback intellect, I don't think he ever will.

                      Guessing one of the first things Mullen says in his postgame is that Franks is still his QB.

                        Let Trask finish out and let Franks transfer or he will probably cause locker room issues next season. Jones is the QB next season.

                          Yes. Offense looks smoother

                            I don't know what we'll see. It seems clear that Trask is a better passer. Franks has hurt us as much or more as he helped us when running, so I can't see Trask being a big downgrade there. I sure hope he's got a better head on his shoulders and has the playbook down.

                            I agree with Rog, if he doesn't start, I would expect (and hope) there's a quicker trigger to pull Franks in the future.

                            I wanted Trask from the get go this year. ...if nothing else it would have really steamed some punk posters here while showing they're more hat than cattle. That being said, Mullen had Franks playing better earlier in the year than he is now. ...and while some of it is being able to mask Frank's weaknesses, that's not all of it. Franks has regressed.

                            Here's to hoping Trask gets his first start since Pop Warner and leads the Gators to win out for the rest of the season!

                                  Franks showed growth earlier in the season. Not today against the nation's 84th ranked defense. They geared for the run and dared Franks to pass. He did what we feared. He bombed.

                                        They should have pulled him last week.

                                        Trask is more accurate.

                                        It is clear, we are not there yet.

                                          I don't see how Mullen can run Franks out there next week. I just don't see how.

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
