    I hope most of these true freshman redshirt, other than the DBs who enrolled early, this class was very mediocre (by UF standards....or UF pre-Muschamp standards). Hopefully some of the redshirt candidates get to play in the 4 games they're allowed and still redshirt (FAU, USF, Samford games). But, like last year, we'll probably be in some tight games against teams we shouldn't.

      Lance is 6'4" 225# and was dominant in his one season. EJ is 6'2" 200# and has looked iffy enough over multiple seasons that many question if he's the best option to start for UF. Even if he looked 20x better than he has, he still wouldn't get to show enough to be a top-10 pick.

        Which is why he's a huge risk. But that's just another reason he's not comparable to EJ. You're the one that made the comparison, but now you're pointing out how different they are?

        EJ has had 86 pass attempts and plenty of other plays in which he's pulled the ball and run, bc he didn't make the read. Last year, he went 56% with 2 TDs and 1 INT. That's why we know how much he'd need to improve to become a top-10 pick and why he's so different than Lance was going into his first year as a starter.

        Homer has been gone a while but people need to respect his...... well "homerism". He is devoted to shytty coaches even years after theyve been fired.

        I'll take a starting SEC QB any day over a 1AA QB. Trey Lance is all about POTENTIAL. At least EJ has stats and film against top 10 competition. Even with our garbage WRs this year, he'll have good stats.

          What do you consider good? 1500 yards in 13 games?

          1800 yards?

          2000?

          If EJ finishes 2021 so unimpressively, why would he not stay another season at UF.? Go to some NFL calibre training tutoring -- why isn't he working with some private tutoring camp during this break.?

            Jeez you're obnoxious. You brought up Lance to try and justify someone predicting EJ as a top-10 pick. Trey Lance being 'all about POTENTIAL' is exactly why he got drafted where he did and why EJ has almost no chance. Bc unless something changes in an insane way, he hasn't shown that potential, but he does have multiple things working against him.. You could definitely make the case that he's a higher floor than Lance, but that would also have nothing to do with what we're discussing.

                        For this upcoming season:

                        — Over the last five years, the NCAA had banned two-a-days and implemented straightforward rules regarding fall camp.

                        Now, the NCAA is set to ban the Oklahoma Drill and reduce the number of padded practices in camp from 21 to 18, including no more than two consecutive full-contact practices.

                        Teams can start practicing 29 days prior to their first game of the 2021 season. So UF's Sept. 4 start date means that the Gators won't start camp until into August. There can be 25 total preseason practices. Those aren't new changes.

                        Per Sports Illustrated, which shed light on the changes:

                        The new working model would require one less helmet-only practice (going from nine to eight), but the time limit on contact during a full-padded practice may be reduced from 90 minutes to as few as 45 minutes.

                        The new system is being referred to as an 8-9-8 model: eight practices in helmets, nine in shells, eight in full pads. Under current rules, coaches are required to hold the first two practices in helmets and the next two in shells with the remaining days unregulated.

                        Most coaches do not operate 21 days of full pads, but some hold as many as 21 days in at least shells. For many, the new policy is a difference of two to four practices in only helmets rather than shells.

                        Gonna suck for everyone else, but we already didn't let our D practice tackling in pads. Our wr blocking might suffer though.
