New, 2 comments

You've all read Jason's piece about Jeff Driskel asking for his release from his commitment at the University of Florida and his subsequent transfer to Louisiana Tech.

You have also been made aware of his statistical performance over his time as a Gator. What you may not be aware of is how he does on the eye test, namely the eye test as filtered through the unrelenting, unforgiving gaze of social media.
