It would be difficult for any team to overcome an injury to its starting QB, and it looks to be especially difficult because Driskel's backup, Tyler Murphy, had zero career collegiate pass attempts prior to taking the field in the game against Tennessee.
These circumstances might make it seem as if the Gators' hopes for SEC title contention are out the door. Yet when the situation is reviewed in detail, it's clear that Florida still has a very strong chance of winning the SEC East and earning a spot in the conference title game.
This case starts by noting that even though Driskel was 11-3 as a starter (if the Tennessee game is included), he wasn't a standout performer at the position.
