Florida Gators quarterback Will Grier (7) is in the running to be the team’s starter this fall.The last time the Florida Gators had a quarterback throw for more than a dozen touchdown passes in a single season? Take a wild guess.Tim Tebow in 2009.From John Brantley to Jeff Driskel to whatever that mess was last season, here’s your reality. At one point being the quarterback in Gainesville was one of the most glamorous positions in all of athletics.After the last five years, however, you may have to blow a little dust off the statues of Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerffel and Tebow in front of the stadium. Run by on game day, get your photo taken.Because it’s starting to look like the trio isn’t going to have any new additions in the near future. For so many years the “next guy” marched around with entitlement, like a peacock, just for playing the spot at Florida Field. One problem, the peacock doesn’t have a lot of feathers left.The glamour is gone. The position is just another spot on the field on Saturdays in Gainesville. Now the question that leaves UF starving for an answer? Will there ever be another great one?The latest to tackle the assignment are Treon Harris and Will Grier. Harris had some off the field issues, while Grier wasn’t ready last fall. Result? New coach, new system same old hype … or is it just hope?The duo played in Saturday’s Orange and Blue game, and if you want to be honest? Yawn.There’s change, with a coach who finally understands you have to score to win. Grier and Harris both have a lot of accomplishments from their high school days. Neither has proven they’ll ever warrant a statue. New coach Jim McElwain declared, after watching both this spring, that the job remains open.“I think it went well,” said Grier of the spring game. “There’s a lot of room for development, a lot of room to improve in a lot of different areas, but overall we got better throughout the spring. We’ve just got to keep moving going into the fall.”Three things about Grier right off the bat. He’s not a dual threat. That means a shaky offensive line could be a disaster. Guess what UF has? A shaky offensive line.Jones: Gators make progress in spring but have long way to goAnother issue? His body language was not good when a receiver failed to come down with the ball. That’s OK for the prom king on Friday night. On Saturdays, if you’re going to lead a title contender, you better suck it up. McElwain admits he wasn’t thrilled at seeing his QB get frustrated with dropped balls. Grier confessed he needs to get better at that.Here’s a clue fellas. I don’t ever recall seeing Danny Wuerffel get mad at a teammate. Ever. Third issue? He’s going to get every wide receiver on campus hospitalized if he keeps throwing high.Grier is still ahead of Harris just because the latter missed several practices because of a death in the family. But that means little going into May, not August.“I think, I don’t look back at last year or anything that happened or anything like that,” Grier said. “Like I said, we’ve got a long way to go offensively. Regarding that, it’s not up to me. I go out and play as hard as I can, try to lead the team and get better in this offense and do the best I can, try and develop.“I think that there’s a lot of the playbook still needs to be open, a lot of things that we can do that we didn’t, we’re not necessarily extremely sharp right now. Lot of things that we just need more work on, more reps. We can get those things cleaned up and moving forward and be really good.”Ah, potential. John Brantley looked really good as Tebow’s backup, then threw for 20 TDs with 17 interceptions in two years as the starter. Jeff Driskel was supposed to be the next great quarterback and ended up either injured or on the bench before heading toward Louisiana Tech for one last season. It was Harris who stepped in to give the starving offense a little hope, only to show that he, too, is probably not worthy of making room for another statue.To be fair? Both of these players are so young. Grier didn’t play as a true freshman, Harris almost got his head knocked off.“I think age isn’t a factor,” Grier insists. “I try to lead by example, but not only that, I think as a quarterback it comes with the position. I try my best to lead these guys in the right way and improve as much as possible.”Florida Gators quarterback Treon Harris (3) is in the running to be the team’s starter this fall.Players can say what they want. But Harris has already had some off the field incidents that raise your eyebrows. Say what you want about having a good time, being a college kid, whatever. Florida quite simply has stunk the last two years and has a new head coach because of it.You can talk about the titles the Gators have, but you know what? There’s not a player on campus who has an SEC ring. That’s what is most troubling about Florida’s program. If you are a quarterback, you probably need to stay in your apartment for about six months and figure out why your team has been so bad, don’t you think?McElwain seemed a little disturbed that Harris, who had been through the battles a year ago, didn’t even seem to have a sense of urgency in the spring game when it came to getting the ball in the end zone. What about Tennessee or Georgia?“You know, I have to work on some things. Coach Mac is like, if it ain’t there, throw it away, upstairs throw out of bounds,” Harris said. “It’s different. Kind of sort of the same as the reads go, from the safety, away from the safety, to the safety. Things like that. But it’s a whole totally different offense that I’ve got to get better at.”Harris feels like he’s chasing Grier right now.“I have a lot of catching up to do with the days that I missed and the install that we put in,” he said. “I wasn’t here and I was like reading over it and watching it, but I didn’t rep it so I had to get better at that (and) catch up.”While there has been some speculation Harris might look to transfer, he vowed to be in Gainesville in the fall. But if he later bolts, he’ll be the fourth QB to leave town for another program since Tebow took off.So who’s next? Who will make them move over at Florida’s Mount Rushmore of quarterbacks in front of the stadium to make room for a new member? Right now, they probably aren’t on campus. But Grier and Harris get the next shot. If neither at least steps up to resemble greatness? McElwain could be loading up the moving truck like the guy before him.“We’ll get back, we’ll look at the video, the guys will work this summer and come back in the fall and I’m just excited those two guys are here,” McElwain said of Grier and Harris.Glad someone is. Right now? I just don’t see the next great UF quarterback on campus.Contact Jones at [email protected] or follow on Twitter: @DaveJonesSports.
