I think they deserve to be 2 or 3, but I understand it would just hurt the big schools' feelings if they were that high.

I wouldn't be sir prized if he passed McCoy on the depth chart. I think he might have a better arm and accurate arm then him from the highlights I thought. He also got some wheels too help us prepare for QB's as Wilson , RG3 and other runners etc.
You guys would've gotten raped with Brantley, and there's no evidence that suggests he's clutch or can lead Florida through an SEC schedule undefeated. Tebow is one of the greatest players in not only SEC history, but college football history. To insinuate that an inexperienced sophomore QB could do what Tebow couldn't do, which was beat a superior Alabama team (Tebow had ya'll undefeated leading up to the SECCG) and then beat a very good Texas team, solely because he's a more traditional pocket passer is absolutely absurd.
There's no way Brantley will leave school and be thought of as a superior QB than Tebow, and even if he's a better prospect, that still doesn't directly translate to wins. He's not going to achieve more, and he's not going to break any of Tebow's records. If Gators fans are thinking that's a possibility, then you guys are just trying to convince yourselves that Brantley is better than he really is or you guys don't realize how spectacular the run was that Tebow led ya'll on.
no, i'm a gator fan. i appreciate everything tim tebow did and i know how much of every bit of success can be attributed to him. but the offense was just not very good last year, say what you want. brantley is a much better downfield passer than tim is/was, and the big play was the one thing holding uf back. that and spikes' nagging hamstring injuries. my claim was pretty ridiculous. but don't say john brantley couldn't have led that team through our regular season schedule undefeated because that schedule was a cakewalk. i think we would have given alabama a much better game with john brantley at the helm though. tebow was just ineffective that game... i guess it didn't help that demps got hurt. but brantley is a much better pure passer than tim and that's what i think we needed against alabama. half of our drives were three and out because passes were either inaccurate or rushed (and i think we all know that a rushed tebow pass is not a good one) or whatever.
i think that the john brantley we see this year, in the starting job for the 2010 gators, probably would have put up gaudy numbers. yeah, he probably wouldn't have won the national championship (just hyperbole really), but i think he'll be THAT good.
