CBS Sports college football analyst Gary Danielson, a former QB at Purdue and in the NFL, has good things to say about UF quarterback Tyler Murphy.
“Tyler Murphy is a tremendous example to all of college football including coaches, parents and players,” Danielson said on a CBS release. “Eventually you will get your shot. It doesn’t always happen on your time table, but everybody eventually gets that opportunity to prove themselves. The major question is will you be ready when your opportunity opens?
“Murphy is a great example of a player who was ready. He studied his playbook. He kept himself in shape. And when he got his chance it didn’t matter that his coaches didn’t believe he was a starting quarterback. He believed it and has earned the position. Murphy is now actually getting more offensive plays and designs than Jeff Driskel was.”
