It is the official start of the John Brantley Era. You may remember him from such posts as "Let John Brantley Start Over Tim Tebow Against LSU."
As a passer, Brantley is mechanically superior to Tebow -- so much so that I think Brantley will emerge next season as Mark Sanchez 2.0: One season of starting, but a sure-fire 1st-round pick.
True freshman Trey Burton plays the "Tim Tebow 2006" role -- the energetic back-up who will likely play a role in short-yardage situations.
Other things to watch for: The WR corps, which will benefit from Brantley's style; the linebackers, who are a wrecking crew; and Mike Gillislee, the talented RB squashed in between Jeff Demps and incoming freshman stud Mack Brown.
It's a gorgeous spring day here in New York -- and in Gainesville.
Couple of things on my radar today:
*Tiger: Still on pace to win.
*No charges against Big Ben?
*Break up the SF Giants!
*No Kobe, no problem -- at least against the T'wolves.
*Did Alex Ovechkin just lock up NHL MVP?
*Buying: David Price for a breakthrough season.
*Not buying: Jimmy Clausen.
Enjoy the day. Probably a lot of Masters-watching. At least keep the windows open...
