Jeff Driskel entered Florida as the No. 1-ranked quarterback in the nation three years ago. As a true sophomore in 2012, he beat out Jacoby Brissett and showed flashes of athletic brilliance in helping lead the Gators to the Sugar Bowl.
However, he looked like he regressed in a bad loss to Miami in the team’s second game of 2013.
In the first quarter of Florida’s rivalry game against Tennessee on Saturday, he threw a bad interception that was returned 62 yards for a touchdown by Devaun Swafford.
On the very same play, the signal-caller went down with what eventually was announced as a broken fibula.
From the early looks of things, Florida fans won’t be missing him – at all.
Talk about adding insult to injury.
