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.

Muschamp to the Dawgs? No Way. Unless Will’s friend, Kirby Smart, is the HC. I have a dream!

Muschamp lucky that he and Jimbo Fisher are buds….or that could be 80-0. Jimbo will keep it at say 45-0.

Blake……You beat the worst team in the SEC, with No Qb, and a team that quit about 2-3 weeks ago.
But, History will just show a win over Fla. Congrats. Enjoy.

Before you write drivel like “embarrassment” to describe Georgia Southern’s defeat of Florida, remember that this same team rushed for over 300 yards against Alabama in 2011 and scored more points than LSU and two other SEC teams scored together against Alabama that same year. Georgia Southern will be entering the Sun Belt next year and playing Georgia State. How do you plan to cover those games? Hopefully, your coverage won’t be as embarrassing as your coverage today.

I understand all the injuries but still. Georgia Southern was playing without 19 of 65 scholarship athletes.

Don’t think there is any other option than to fire Muschamp.

I agree he will make someone a great DC.
