The way Jeff Driskel is playing it certainly seems that the coaching staff made the right decision but a tough October slate of games will be the true test of the sophomore signal caller.
Starting your first two games at Kyle Field and Neyland Stadium only serve as the appetizer for an October that includes games against LSU, South Carolina, Georgia and a trip to Vanderbilt.
The Gators are lucky to get LSU and South Carolina at home, and Georgia is almost a home game being held in Jacksonville. While it helps to be at home, those three games are the real test of where the Gators are as a football team and how close they are to being the team to beat in the SEC East.
Don't sleep on Vandy. James Franklin has his football team believing in his system and hungry to leave their stamp on Vanderbilt football. What a better legacy to leave than to beat Florida? The Gators will travel to Vanderbilt in between games against LSU and South Carolina. Can you say trap game?
Starting the season off 3-0 is a big confidence booster for a young quarterback, but he hasn't faced a test like the defenses of LSU, Georgia and South Carolina will give him. They will get after him and test him as much mentally as they will physically.
Can he pass the test?
Based on what we've seen so far, that answer is a resounding yes.
