07:34 AM ET 11.19 | Putting a number on it, Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy gauged his sprained right shoulder at "70, 75 percent" healthy after sitting out Saturday. The injury could continue to improve enough for him to line up under center Saturday against Georgia Southern. Either way, it is progress from a month ago. ... Until Murphy proves to be healthy, the Gators will proceed with Skyler Mornhinweg as the starter, Muschamp said, and look to expand his role more this week. Morninweg attempted just five passes Saturday night prior to Florida's final two offensive possessions, when the Gators were forced to play from behind for the first time since early in the first quarter. "We definitely have to open it up a little more, because you can't win a lot of games being conservative," Murphy said.

I take it this is one of those "payment/picking on the afflicted, rest up our guys, late season OOC" games for the SEC again this Saturday.

But of course. Why play a tough game late when you can schedule the gimme to help your voting chances.

At least with an ex-rugby player taking snaps, some designed-QB-runs would've been possible.

I still say Pease should've picked one or two spots, say when they were just past the 50 or so, to call up a play-action post pattern, to try and catch the safeties playing too much run.

body of work. What planet did you just beam down from. Of course it matters. It helps from a timing perspective by playing and possibly losing a conference game in september that will be forgotten in november as others lose along the way. Its about timing of your losses if you have them. Not unlike the Heisman.

All I am saying is polls are a joke.... starting with preseason

At the end of the conference CGs...

they should look at the body of work for the whole season... not because 1 team lost game 3 and the other in game 10....

Take away the Coaches poll and dont start publishing polls until the 10th game... Teams are deep in conference play

Neaux. But you really don't think playing Aggy early in the event of a loss and chattanooga late isn't planned to play the polls and voters. c'mon. Thats exactly why you do it.

The idea is to rest and heal up before FSU and the SEC championship game. UF needs half a year to rest up this year.

I know it helps... I am saying its not right....

If I am comparing Team A & B with the same record... I am not looking at when they loss... I am looking at the entire body of work <SOS, MOV>

Brilliant strategy.

Not brilliant on the part of those that pay to see such.
