That's tough. It's gonna make protecting Brissett even more important because not having any depth at QB is not fun. (i.e. Matt Simms)

He can sit the season and get mental reps watching the other guys mistakes.
Unless Brissett gets hurt too, UT will face UF #1 QB.

So Lawrence, was the feeling that these two (Driskel, Brisset) were only competing for the starting spot or that Mushamp was planning/hoping to use a two quarterback system / have the ability to switch off QBs if he felt the need?

Why on earth was he not wearing a non-contact jersey?

Sounds like a few sites jump the gun on the report. Gatorsports twitter: Depending on who you follow, Jeff Driskel's shoulder injury is either "a ding" or "Jacoby Brissett is the starter."

Depends on the seriousness, and so far most of the reports have been conflicting in that regard.

Ding or no ding, if the season started today Brissett would be the starter.

Exactly; there's two much conflicting reporting out there, seemingly just to bear everyone else to the punch.

Pretty good article on this issue and some of the problems with it (in media) that I read earlier today:

I don't think Muschamp ever came out and said he'd use a 2QB system, but he was quoted as saying UF could win with either.

The fact that Driskel couldn't distance himself from Brissett, after being rated the top HS QB a couple years ago, and enrolling in January (two semesters before Brissett), is as troubling as the injury. Driskel should have been miles ahead of Brissett at this point.

JCLawyerVol posted this is in the recruiting forum

UF coach Will Muschamp said Monday that the coaches had taken the non-contact jerseys off the quarterbacks to give them a better feel for pressure in the pocket. Muschamp said the defense was not tackling the quarterbacks, but thudding them.

This is just Muschamp's way of sending a message to the rest of the league of how tough his defense is... doh!

Is that due to changes in OC's or poor coaching? Sounds like you're about to go through what UT went through for the past several years.
