Florida Vs. Bowling Green: Jacoby Brissett And Jeff Driskel Will Both Start At QB, According To Insane Report

David Pingalore was first to report that Jacoby Brissett would start for Florida against LSU last year. With that out of the way: His Friday report that Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will both start simultaneously for Florida on Saturday against Bowling Green stretches credulity.

The Florida Gators are going to start both Quarterbacks tomorrow, Local 6 Sports Director David Pingalore learned Friday night.

According to Pingalore's Florida Gators sources, Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will be on the field the same time when the game starts against Bowling Green.

Pingalore, known for 11th-hour reports with little more than a fraction of truth to them, also writes three other important things:

  1. Driskel will be used primarily in running situations while nursing his injured left non-throwing shoulder.
  2. Driskel has looked sharper than Brissett in practice.
  3. Will Muschamp will name a starter for good by the Tennessee game — and it will be Driskel.

Pingalore's been right on a few things and wrong on more than a few things before, but it would be unbecoming of a journalistic outlet to run this report without believing in it, so it's reasonable to conclude that Pingalore's sources (plural, note) might actually know things.

Or, y'know, this could be entirely bullshit.

Still, even if Florida starts two quarterbacks for a play, expect that to be a less egregious use of the Florida quarterback position than starting Trey Burton against Florida State in 2010.
