Dooley Noted: No reason to be discouraged by Gators’ first scrimmage


Pat covers the state of Florida’s QB contest after the first srimmage, UF’s outstanding baseball, softball and track programs, and more.


    • @ Vulcan – Do you always post this same message after every podcast? I have already told you before that this is a podcast. There is nothing to watch. It is like a 30-40 minute radio show, one-way. I don’t understand why or how you can’t grasp the concept. Listen or don’t, but many people share podcasts and others enjoy listening.

      • I like the podcast and I’ve come to look forward to it. I’m glad they have extended it through the summer. I guess that pretty much makes it a permanent feature. Good!

      • Agreed. You can listen to a podcast and do other things at the same time. It’s pretty hard to read an article while doing something else.

      • AA….we are old men, we are set in our ways, and we do not like anything new, including technology. So now I suppose you are going to tell me that podcasts aren’t new technology? Don’t bother, I ain’t listening anyway!

        • @ Gator – LOL, I understand. no worries. it’s just not something to read. I like them because I turn it on, start playing it and turn up the volume, and go cook dinner or whatever and I can hear what’s going on.

  1. I do not mind podcasts. I just wish sites would always use a timeline with each one so one does not have to listen to what one is not interested in listening to, as when one is reading an article. It is not hard to do. Simple. You just have to take a little time to do it for your readers (or listeners in this case). You know, make your audience want to listen in, not skip over it as with Vulcan.

  2. The only discouragement I felt from reading about the scrimmage was the continued bad play and lack of progress of Franks. But, on the other side, I was very encouraged with the continued development and play of Trask. Unless something changes or he gets hurt, I can easily see Trask starting game one for the Gators and being a successful leader at the QB position, finally (or since Tebow).

  3. WOW! It would be amazing and unprecedented if a 2-Star QB that didn’t even start for his high school team becomes the starter for a major SEC college football school. Trask is not even a dual threat QB that fits what Coach Mullen prefers but neither is Franks who doesn’t have the QB “it” factor or IQ to make it.

    • I think Trask could be coached to be dual threat. I think the kid is humble and coachable. We’ll see.

    • I don’t think it really matters if he’s a “dual threat” QB. It seems to me that most QB’s who get labeled “dual threat” are really just good running backs who can throw the ball a little. If the Gators starting QB isn’t a good passer, the offense won’t be any better than we’ve seen the last several years. We’ve got running backs who can run the ball. We need a passer.

  4. Trask was a composite 3-star recruit. And he was that and did not even start for his high school team. And Trask is athletic and can run the ball. And he practiced and played in a spread offense in high school.
