That team should still be able to use their ZR concepts and given Franklin>Mauk athletically, the ball is placed in one of their stellar RBs hands more often (depending on how Florida decides to S/E).
Franklin vs. Mauk is an interesting athletic comparison.
Mauk is actually pretty fast and quick - he was an Ohio track star. He's obviously not going to shed tacklers like Franklin, but he might be more likely to make them miss.
It will be interesting to see how Mauk does in the run game. If he's decisive, he should be effective (and I imagine Florida will not be keying on him, at least early, since there is practically no tape on him running the football.
