Florida's still playing coy on whether Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett will start for the Gators on Saturday against Bowling Green, listing both QBs as starters on the Monday depth chart. And Will Muschamp told reporters on Monday that the two sophomore signal-callers will rotate duties by quarter in the first half.

(For the record, the Associated Press' Mark Long tweeted this first, but called Muschamp "Mularkey," because he also covers the Jacksonville Jaguars.)

I don't hate the plan to give both starters some time to work into a rhythm with a couple of series, then make a decision on the second half. It gives both guys a chance to execute things without looking over their shoulders, and should not be disrupted by Bowling Green taking a lead and forcing the coaches to insert the quarterback who they feel in their hearts gives them a better chance of winning, because Florida's defense should be stout enough to keep the Falcons off the board even if the Gators' offense struggles.

Did I just jinx that on purpose? Maybe.
