Looking for challengers
What is going on in the SEC East? Can anyone challenge Florida even with the Gators having a new quarterback?
Georgia will start redshirt freshman Aaron Murray. Tennessee will start junior college transfer Matt Simms. Kentucky and Vanderbilt have had shaky quarterback play. South Carolina’s Stephen Garcia is the most experienced and accomplished quarterback in the division, but he’s had issues, too. Besides, South Carolina’s struggles in the offensive line and running game raise doubts about the Gamecocks.
Brantley won’t be as good as Tebow. Plus, the top two receivers and six defensive starters must be replaced, so Florida doesn’t figure to be as dominant as it was last season, when the Gators beat every SEC East opponent by double figures.
