Florida WR Demarcus Robinson Retweeted A Post In Favor Of Benching Jeff Driskel, Then Deleted It

After just one loss, the sky appears to be falling in Gainesville. Saturday night, after watching Florida look anemic on offense against Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Gators great Emmitt Smith tweeted that he'd seen enough of junior starting quarterback Jeff Driskel. The Florida signal-caller completed just 9-of-28 passes for 93 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in a game that the Gators clearly were using as a measuring stick. In total, the team gained just 200 yards of offense on the night.

Sunday, Gators wideout Demarcus Robinson retweeted a tweet from a fan account that called for a "new face" at quarterback moving forward. He eventually undid the retweet, but enough fans saw it and took screenshots.

Robinson then tweeted a message to clear things up, saying that he supports all of Florida's quarterbacks.

Could he have possibly retweeted the post by accident? Sure, but if so, you'd think that after he realized his mistake, he'd have acknowledged it and plead ignorance. Robinson is having a solid season thus far, but he did catch just two passes for 14 yards against the Crimson Tide. We'll see if anything else comes from Robinson's snafu.
