Florida Gators Football: Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel Fit Nicely Into New System

Andy Hutchins, author of Alligator Army, Florida's SB Nation blog, did a brief Q+A on the Capitol One Bowl website on Thursday as part of their 2012 SEC preview series.

Hutchins offered his opinion on several topics, including how the Gators will fare this year, what their toughest game will be, the defense and Florida's posteason bowl outlook.

But the big topic of discussion around the Florida football program of late has been the dual quarterback system that head coach Will Muschamp will employ. Everyone seems to have an opinion on it, here's Hutchins':

How will the change to Brent Pease affect the quarterback derby between Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel? Is either one significantly better suited to running the new system?

Had you asked me this question last year, I would have thought Brissett's demeanor, marked by an apparent disinterest in anything but managing a game, gave him an edge. But I think Driskel's made strides in that area, and that both quarterbacks are savvy guys with big arms who can do everything Pease wants them to do. Certainly, each is more physically talented than any quarterback Boise State has trotted out during its rise, with all due respect to NCAA Football 08 cover athlete Jared Zabransky.
