Florida still deciding on a starting quarterback



Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said Tuesday that Florida’s replacement for QB John Brantley has not been decided and that Jeff Driskel, Jacoby Brissett and Tyler Murphy will all practice this week in preparation for Saturday’s game against No. 1 LSU.

“We’re practicing the other three guys and by the end of the week we’ll decide who the starter is,’’ Weis said.

Weis said Driskel, who has played in four games this season, has a slight advantage because he has experience. He has played in four games this season and is 7-for-16 for 73 yards and two interceptions.

“I’m going objectively,’’ Weis said. “I’m not going just because Jeff has played and the other two guys haven’t played. Jeff obviously has the upper hand because he’s played and the other guys haven’t played meaningful football yet. But the other two guys are getting reps, too, so we’ll see how it goes.’’

Weis said he doubts the Gators will play all three quarterbacks.
