As much as we love the bowl season, one of the frustrating trends that have caught on in recent years is the better players opting out of playing.  Now with the addition of the transfer portal, teams can find themselves short-handed as their top players take their marbles and go home.   The Florida Gators are an example of a team that will be forced to test their depth chart.  Starting QB Anthony Richardson has declared for the NFL draft.  Meanwhile, backup Jalen Kitna turned out to be a big ol’ pervert and was dismissed from the team.  That leaves Jack Miller III as the starter against Oregon State, a highly recruited but green signal caller.  Making matters tougher for him is the departure of one of the top offensive linemen in the country in O’Cyrus Torrence.  Oregon State has had to deal with some of the best offenses in the country, coming from the PAC 12.  They proved their mettle, holding USC and Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams to 17 points and keeping Washington’s number one rated passing offense to 24.  We’ll call for Oregon State to control the pace, dominate time of possession and hold an undermanned Gator team under 22 total points.
