What the Senator said
Ever wonder why some coaches have an extreme disdain for major media? Senator Blutarsky sheds a little light on why.
As the quoted portion of the article mentions, the Gainesville Sun's reporter thinks the Florida staff may be playing tricks with Brantley forcing Grantham to prepare for a QB he won't see at the Cocktail Party. And how the offense Brantley runs "is far different than the offense Driskel and fellow true freshman Jacoby Brissett have run" [different =simpler/easier and less capable). As the Senator says, it'll take about "fifteen seconds to dial up a suitable defensive alignment once it’s obvious that Brantley isn’t in the game", and begin to send relentless attacks in to the Gator backfield with heavy focus on Demps and Rainey (who we are likely spending most of our time preparing for anyway).
Hey, Robbie Andreu, this is football, not rocket surgery, and making in game adjustments has been something Grantham does very well. The difficulty would be if Brantley sat and they handed the reigns to say Trey Burton in a style we saw against Tennessee in 2002, when a much more mobile James Banks took over for Casey One Arm Clausen. The "different" offense Andreu describes is more akin to NFL defenses preparing for Curtis Painter instead of Peyton Manning.
