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.
