“We need a spark,” Gators coach Jim McElwain said Wednesday, “and Feleipe could be that guy.”
Austin Appleby is starting Saturday against South Carolina, but the graduate transfer was inconsistent in his two games earlier this year. Franks will be the backup quarterback and could see the field Saturday, regardless of how Appleby does.
“I know this, we’re not afraid at any point of him playing,” McElwain said of Franks, who’s unlikely to redshirt now with Del Rio out.
The best bet, IMO, is that he comes in this game and takes the reins and we never look back.
