    It gets worse. Based on preseason predictions, some have UF facing WVU in a bowl game, maybe Liberty Bowl in Memphis or Texas Bowl in Houston. Imagine UF having faced the following top quarterbacks in the regular season, then having to face a former Gator and Heisman frontrunner in the postseason.
    • 9/29 - Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State. #10 rated SEC QB in 2017, our head coach's former student. Rating: 117.6.
    • 10/27 - Jake Fromm, Georgia. #7 rated SEC QB in 2017. Defeated UF last year. Rating: 168.2
    • 11/3 - Drew Lock, Missouri. #1 rated SEC QB in 2017. Rating: 169.4.
    • 11/10 - Jake Bentley, South Carolina. #4 rated SEC QB in 2017. Defeated UF last year. Rating: 130.2.
    • 11/24 - James Blackman, FSU (assuming he beats out Deiondre Francois). #10 rated ACC QB. Defeated UF last year. Rating: 129.2. OR Deiondre Francois. #6 rated ACC QB in 2016. Defeated UF that year. Rating: 142.1.
    • (hypothetical bowl game in December) - Will Grier, WVU. #4 B12 QB. Former Gator starter. Rating: 162.7.
    Florida does not have a QB ranked close to any of its opposing QBs, so watching a former Gator QB in the Heisman race would only be more painful if we had to face him in the postseason.

    Crap, Cam Newton and possibly Grier. Plus I don't know who to blame more the NCAA and Mac. Also I think Blackman is going to be the Noles starter. I think he fits more into the Taggert system than Francois does.

    Also Jacoby Brissett as well (he's was the starter for the Colts for all but one game last season). Also early next season depending on Luck's shoulder.

    I did not include Brissett, because I set the cutoff at 1,000 years passing in a season. However, he did earn a consistent passer rating around 130 whether he passed for 250 yards or 2,500 yards in a season at Florida or NC State.
