    The guy just isn't terribly bright. Love the win, but his constant punk-ass antics really annoyed me.

    You're the quarterback of the Florida Gators. Grow up.

    Discuss.

        That was really dumb. Kid needs to forget about everything going on around him and just play

          CDM needs to reel that BS in. Can’t wait until EJ or JJ is QB next year.

            He has to learn to have tougher skin. He doesn't have to react to everything. The fans boo because of his lousy play. He totally controls that.
            In his defense, he has been getting killed, though. Maybe the fans could lighten up on him. You'd think we'd be immune to horrible quarterback play at this point.

              Totally agree, Ox. I’m embarrassed for him.

              Is there a clip? Not aware. Traveling in back woods. No signal for while.

                There are absolutely no pros to taking on your own fan base. You lose every damn time. You respond to criticism with your play on the field.

                  Welcme to the social media generation.

                  That said, if we win, he can taunt me!

                    Kid's a bit of a tool, and not a very sharp one. Shushing own crowd not a good idea! Twice no less! But until we get a better option at the position, he's our tool and I'll cheer him on! He played hard today and did enough to get the win, but he is very limited. No pocket presence and doesn't see the field very well.

                      Serious question: What did Franks do today that Emory Jones (or maybe even Toney) couldn't have done?

                        Just win.

                        People booed Leak and he was an elite QB.

                          I have no clue why we are saving a redshirt on a kid who has a 0.0001 chance of being here in his fifth year.

                          I fully expected EJ to be starting by now.

                            I agree, but I would rather it not stop there. Toney has conflict or pitches a fit every 3rd touch. His DC needs to grow up too.

                              That's the first time in 35 years of watching sports that I have seen a player tell his OWN CROWD to shut up.

                                Nothing. Commentators were talking about how he led the Gators back.

                                Really?!!? I saw Scarlett, Perine and Toney lead us back. I give Franks credit for not quitting and playing hard, but outside of handing the ball off and throwing behind the LOS so his receivers could get YAC he didn’t do anything to lead us back.

                                  Can't stand that punk. Can't wait for his sorry ass to be gone. Hope he's getting his degree because he won't be playing in the pros.

                                    Honestly don’t care that he turned heel on the fans. If playing with a chip on his shoulder lights a fire under his arse then so be it. Hopefully we only have to put up with him three more games tops.
