Well the hits keep coming for Jeff Driskel and I’m not talking on the field.
The unranked Florida Gators suffered a 42-21 beat down against No. 3 Alabama on Saturday. Former legendary Gator running back Emmit Smith tweeted for Driskel to be benched during the fourth quarter.
Put Jeff Driskel on the bench please, I have seen enough.

We all know Driskel had a bad game. He completed 9 of his 28 passes for 93 yards, two interceptions and once touchdown. Driskel attempted a career high of 13 passes for 15 yards or longer with just one completion.
He also led the Gators in rushing, carrying the ball 11 times for 59 yards and a touchdown.
If the Gators continue to struggle offensively, its going to be another long season and you can say good bye to Will Muschamp.
The Gators (2-1, 1-1) will travel to Tennessee next Saturday.
