Speaking of confidence, quarterback Feleipe Franks apparently hasn’t lost any of his despite his recent struggles.
“Feleipe is a confident guy,” UF receiver Josh Hammond said. “He feels like he’s the best quarterback in the country if you ask him. So even though the numbers might not say it or anything like that, he feels like that. And that’s just his confidence.
“Feleipe’s got a lot of people in his ear, telling him a bunch of crap. I think the thing about him, he just loves the game and he’s always trying to get better so he’s going to come out and he’s going to take every day and try to learn and get better. He’s going to go into the game and be ready to play.”
UF coach Jim McElwain and offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier have been working diligently with Franks over the past two weeks on perhaps his biggest weakness, Hammond said.
“Decision making,” Hammond said. “I think coach Mac and coach Nuss have spent a little more time with him, just focusing on his decision making, where to go with the ball, when to throw it away, when to scramble, when to tuck it and run, when not to. I think that would be the biggest thing for him just moving forward in the season, just making better decisions.”
