While they say defense wins championships, college football has become a quarterback league more than ever, and the position can make a massive impact on the outcome of a game. In other words, games a lot of times are only as difficult as the quarterback who is leading that particular team.
The good news is that the SEC lost a ton of last season’s starting quarterbacks, which should make life a little easier for the Florida Gators. No more AJ McCarron, Aaron Murray or Johnny Manziel. Instead, the quarterbacks the Gators will face this season have potential but aren’t nearly as accomplished as the guys who were just starting last season.
Besides a Heisman Trophy winner, the Gators have a rather easy slate of quarterbacks they’ll face this year.
