Gators Offense is Going the Wrong Way

Offense with Grier (or Grier and Harris) at QB: six games, avg. 384.7 yds per game
Offense with just Harris at QB: 330.6 yds per game

LSU 35, Gators 28
Treon Harris: 17-32, 271 yds, 2 TDs; Gators w/ 28 points
Gators RBs: 31 carries, 99 yds, 1 TD
Total offense: 326 yds

Gators 27, Georgia 3
Treon Harris: 8-19, 155 yds, 1 TD
Gators RBs: 48 carries, 272 yds, 2 TDs
Total offense: 413 yds

Gators 9, Vandy 7
Treon Harris: 12-24-1, 158 yds
Gators RBs: 34 carries, 126 yds, 1 TD
Total offense: 258 yds

Gators 24, South Carolina 14
Treon Harris: 19-33-2, 256 yds, 1 TD
Gators RBs: 43 carries, 183 yds, 2 TDs
Total offense: 404 yds

Gators 20, FAU 14 (OT)
Treon Harris: 8-17-1, 122 yds, 2 TDs
Gators RBs: 44 carries, 192 yds, 1 TD
Total offense: 252 yds

Other than the South Carolina game, the Gators' running and passing offense has been clicking since Treon Harris became the quarterback. Mostly they run the ball well but don't throw the ball well, or (like against SC) they run and throw the ball well but only come away with 24 points because they do other things that prevent them from getting to the end zone (a la two turnovers).

I was at the game on Saturday so it was hard to get a sense of the flow of the game, but man that offensive line...which led to Treon Harris looking indecisive...which led to a near-loss in OT to FAU. They gotta pull it together before Saturday or else they are in trouble. Where is the Treon Harris who played against LSU? Maybe it would make more sense to have him throw on the run more, where it seems he's a little more comfortable?

All I know is two things:
1) We were a touchdown and extra point from me never going to a Gators game ever again. (The last game I went to was Georgia Southern. Nuff said.)

2) The Gators gotta do something. Defense is playing great but it needs some more help from the offense.
