Florida beat writers are learning an age-old lesson: Mama knows best. After conflicting stances on the health of Gators quarterback Jeff Driskel - specifically his left, non-throwing shoulder - it turns out that Driskel's mother's quote to USA Today on Tuesday was accurate, versus the "nothing to see here" reply from head coach Will Muschamp in response to nefarious "internet reports:"
UF coach Will Muschamp came in and told us Driskel suffered a bruised scapula and will be non-contact until next week.— Michael DiRocco (@ESPNdirocco) August 15, 2012
Does that mean the "dead heat" race between Driskel and competitor Jacoby Brissett is suddenly gaining some space? Not so, says Coach Boom:
Driskel didn't even remember the play he got hurt. Driskel will practice and get his normal reps. QB competition unaffected, Muschamp said.— Michael DiRocco (@ESPNdirocco) August 15, 2012
