Can the Gators Pass?

Before Urban Meyer, the Florida Gators were known and feared for their awesome passing game. Passing was such a priority with Steve Spurrier that even Emmit Smith feared he wouldn't get enough touches. We threw quick, often and for long yards, often taking the opposition out of the game by halftime.

Every year Meyer had Tim Tebow throw a little less, a problem that has caused many to question if Tebow has an arm now  that he is in the NFL. So we want to know if Muschamp and our new Offensive Coordinator Brent Pease will bring the long ball back to the swamp. Which quarterback wins out as starter, may influence how much we throw the ball. During the spring Orange and Blue game Brissett (9-16-0, 233 yards, 2 TDs) showed off his arm, completing five passes longer than 20 yards. And Driskel (12-14-0, 147 yards, 0 TDs) showed accuracy and the ability to extend plays with his legs.
