    @CBSSportsHQ: I think it's safe to say Kyle Trask is breaking this record tomorrow... Most single-season pass TDs - Florida history Danny Wuerffel (1996) - 39 TDs Kyle Trask (2020) - 38 TDs @GatorsFB | #GoGators

        Trasks' 3 turnovers last night pretty much sealed the deal for Mac Jones imo because Bama is going to skull Fk us next week and the Heisman voters don't vote for guys on 2 loss, non championship teams. It is what it is. He's had a helluva year though up until last night.

        The first int is definitely on him. I don't blame him at all for the fumble, and the second int was bad luck. I'm not sure if that was a missthrow or Toney ran closer to the sideline than Trask expected. It was an up and down night for him for sure, and there were a few plays/throws that I know he'd want back. That said, I have no doubt that it's a better night for him if Pitts had played.

        We would have won with Pitts...the issue I have is how Marco cost Trask a heisman...that comeback would have been enough and we would have gotten a lot more time and the ball back...

          Simply an amazing season by Trask regardless of how it is ending now. Trask has done his part by putting up big numbers. Not his fault the defense is no good like Tebow in 07 when he won the Heisman on a 4 loss team. Looks like Trask still might be able to win the Heisman even if it appears we will end up with 4 losses this season too. This season by Trask one of the greatest put up by a Gators QB especially since he was labeled as a 2* afterthought who nobody wanted on their team or would give him a chance.

          Kudos to Pitts and also Toney for sticking around and both of those guys having a season for the ages.

            @delatorre: Kyle Trask is the first quarterback in Florida history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a single season. #Gators

              Not sure why CBS isn't mentioning this fact. Seems relevant considering he's still a Heisman candidate.

              Imagine being so loud and yet so very wrong about Trask :lol:

                Stats don't matter when you lose just like all those TDs that Harris scored would have been meaningless if Bama loses. I'd rather Trask have 1 td and 3 int and a win then 4td and a loss

                  I hate it that for such an outstanding teammate, it will actually be his own fellow teammates on defense that likely cost him the Heisman. I didn’t want to lose, but definitely didn’t want to see Jones put up 5 TDs. How many batted passes fell harmlessly to the ground just a few feet from our guys’ reach? And his only pick gets completely overshadowed but the fumble.

                  But yeah, Trask is about as good a story as there is in sports. I have a 9 and 11 year old, and love the fact that they finally have a QB they want to mimic, given how big that was for me as a kid. He is an all time great UF story.

                    Unfortunately Trask can’t play defense too (actually, probably fortunately). This is a post about Trask, not our terrible defense that let him down. Please stay on topic and laugh at Donkey.

                      I think this thread has more to do with Trask having the best statistical season in UF history than his performance in the game tonight.

                        No offense taken. Enjoy yourself, but I hope we never hire another sad ass lazy fuchs coach who is forced to take D3 backups who never played in HS.

                        There is a reason Saban, Meyer, and 800 other coaches said no. Bc finding a kid who can ride the bench 7 years and still somehow function at the speed of college football is millions to one.

                          Grantham’s sorry ass cost us so much. Fuchs him. Trask will finish 3rd.

                            Kyle Trask will be remembered in Gator lore from now on...
                            Probably won't get a statue but maybe a BHG plaque?

                            Now all we need is a human cannon to blast Grantham back to Athens.

                                I simply don't remember another TE who can line up wide vs an all american CB and win the matchup almost every time.

                                And the flipside is, unlike someone like AH, he can actually block.
