Muschamp’s days must be numbered

About 10 days ago, Florida AD Jeremy Foley said he was 1,000 percent behind coach Will Muschamp.

I wonder what the percentage is now.

The Gators (4-7) have lost twice since then, an expected loss to South Carolina, and one that leans toward the ridiculous.

Georgia Southern, a team in flux because its moving from the Southern Conference to the Sun Belt at the end of the season, shocked Florida 26-20 on Saturday, but is still the first FCS school to ever defeat Florida.

Muschamp can’t feel so secure right now.

The Gators have lost six straight games. They won’t be going to a bowl for the first time since 1990. At 4-7, this will be their first losing season since 1979.

And if you think Florida fans were hopping mad after losing to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl in January, check them out on Twitter today. They’re so full of venom I can’t put them on here.

I’m all for giving coaches a chance, especially with the injuries that Florida has seen this season, but when you’re Florida, you have to beat programs like Georgia Southern. There’s no reason not to do it.

Foley almost has to give up on Muschamp.

He can’t risk falling farther behind Florida State.

Miami is showing signs of life.

Central Florida is now the best team in the middle of the state.

I expect Muschamp to finish the season and then be fired after next week’s inevitable loss to Florida State.

He’ll make someone an excellent defensive coordinator next fall.

Wish Muschamp the best of luck. Know he’ll work hard at it. He put some of the former gator thugs on the road. The discipline got away from Coach Buckeye and Will had to fix it. Thanks for the discipline Will, now go recruit some players and win some games.

@durtybird,

Using your logic, UGAG’s defense should be stellar because they practice against that pro style offense with Murray and Gurley. Me thinks that UGAG’s defense is antiquated because they keep recruiting NFL type players – you know the kind that only want to be “shutdown”- Dionne Sanders-no-tackle-no-discipline-low-IQ type players.

Looks good getting off the bus. Looks good in the NFL. But, consistently giving up tons of points and yards even against other teams backup QB’s.

Doesn’t matter whether he stays or goes. Florida is in for a long, long rebuild. Tennessee will be relevant again before the Gators are.
