Gators coach Jim McElwain says all three QBs could play. “I think there’s some things they all bring to the table that’s really good.”

It is less than 2 weeks until kick off between number 11 Michigan and number 17 Florida in Arlington Texas at Cowboys Stadium and Jim Harbaugh has yet to release his line up. As reported, a media company from New Jersey, has tried to FOIA the roster.
In the ultimate petty move, Florida coach Jim McElwain has yet to confirm his starting QB for their Week 1 matchup. It will probably be known by Gator beat writers who takes the starting job for Florida this year. But throughout camp it has been a a tough competition between QB’s Malik Zaire, a graduate transfer, Feleipe Franks, a RS freshman and Lke Del Rio, the 2016 part time starter.
The last time the two coaches met was in the Citrus Bowl in 2016 where Michigan pummled Florida 41-7. McElwaine clearly doesnt want to give the advantage to Harbaugh.
But it could also be true that Florida doesn’t know who their starting QB is 10 days before the season starts. The 3 potential starters have 3 totally different skill sets and need to work in with the 1st team and get reps. As I did with the Big 10 QB’s (West and East), let me give the QB readiness ranking for Florida.
Ice Cold Coors Light. Don’t play games with Harbaugh. He won’t quit till he manages to win.
