    [QOUTE]Definitely a big no on Felipe Franks...[/QUOTE]
    That was exactly my point in another thread but it was quite an unpopular opinion. I have nothing against Graham personally but he is just so damned inaccurate I'm not sure he is the long term answer at QB going forward. He's inaccurate even for a TO QB, to be honest. The knock on Franks has always been great arm but questionable decision making. I would take his arm talent over anything on our roster currently because none of our QBs can hit the receiver even when they make the right decision.

    Having said that, I'd take Bentley over Franks any day.

    I dont really think any of them have a good enough arm talent base to work with. Graham *maybe* can improve his accuracy with proper coaching and repetition, but I think we would be better off starting with a high-floor true freshman and going from there.

    Franks lacks a certain something.

    Here’s why I am very relaxed about our future - we have a coach who lives for recruiting. He’s not only visiting our commits right now but is also visiting targets committed elsewhere. This is where the 404 mantra comes into play (and I’m a 229 guy). Collins can visit tons of players repeatedly due to proximity. This is GT’s big advantage that Collins will use like no one else. Other coaches have to deal with the hassle of getting to the 404. It’s the hustle factor and Collins, Choice, Key, Burton, Thacker all have it - wake up, Waffle House, swing by 3 schools on way to office, get to office, handle some business, work out, hit 3 more high school hoops games on way home to visit guys or just be seen. This will pay off with young recruits who will see Collins over the next several years.

    As for QB’s, next year we’ll see who emerges between the 3. For those who hated the musical QB’s get ready for round 2. Collins is building and next year is not the target. We’ll be a lot better simply by being healthy, adding in the transfers, and new players. I believe it’s going to be either Yates or Gleason although I could see Collins landing a big time 2021 QB.

    He was using the helicopter today to get to more schools. Brilliant recruiting too because it causes a 'buzz' among the high school students when he lands and takes off.

    And he gets a twitter video or two, which is world wide.

    No on Franks. Did you watch any of the UF vs Miami game to start the year? He was acting like an idiot all game, and wasn't good enough to justify it.

    Instead of Franks, why not pursue Justin Rogers from TCU assuming he is healthy.

    It's like no one has actually seen Franks play because if you did you would be hoping he doesn't come here. All hype, no substance.

    What will he teach our younger QB's? How not to fulfill your potential?

    Probably have to sit. Grad transfer or roll with what we have, IMO.

    Even if he has to sit, I would still take him if he is healthy based on his size, ranking, offer list and character. He should be a excellent candidate for a sixth year.
