Watching graham mertz succeed is bitter sweet. He had so much potential and I wish he could’ve unlocked it at UW. I’m low key becoming a gator fan…

Some fans haven’t bought into Graham Mertz as the Florida Gators QB.

Last week graham mertz looked like a draft ready qb against Tennessee. This week against Charlotte he looks like a walk-on.
