You got to say that Jean is high on Mertz

        Our rookie wide receiver Jean is saying great things about Mertz in the chat.

        If Mertz can be like Burrow there’s no reason we can’t win 9-10 games.

          Look, if there is ever a time for unfettered, unadulterated enthusiasm, it is now.

          My take on Mertz – based on his statistics – is he has been an average passer and below-average runner over the last four years at Wisconsin.

          Will he be the same at Florida, or better, or even worse?

          I don’t know.

          Neither do you.

          Neither does Jean.

          We’ll get a glimpse of what Mertz can do in the spring – and we’ll either feel better or worse about his addition then.

          I wouldn’t go as far as to compare him to Burrow (many did the same thing when former OSU quarterback Miller transferred to UF last year) – because those are unique situations and talents.

            If I was a freshman receiver coming in I would say the exact same thing about my QB.

                Why are you doing promote something like this like it means we’re all set.

                What do they think he was going to say that dude was the worst quarterback he’s seen?

                That is hilarious. If he is like Burrow, we’ll win more than 9 or 10.

                    He isn’t another Burrow.

                        What if he is another Hooker?

                        He really wasn’t any good until his last year.

                          Hooker played in Heupel’s offense. That is more quarterback friendly than ours.

                          If Mertz or Miller can hand off and not throw picks they will be game managers.

                          That means we need the defense to step up.

                        I only see a positive.

                        There’s nothing wrong with receivers having confidence in their quarterback.

                        Even if he’s wrong it’s still a good thing for us to have players uplifting each other.
