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.

@fishdawg “1)Baylor head coach”

Art Briles signed a new contract two weeks ago that runs through 2020. Since Muschamp is an emeritus “Head Coach in Waiting” at Texas, they might want him back in Austin. Nah…

I sure am glad that UGA didn’t have to play Georgia Southern this year. This isn’t a particularly good Southern team, either. I feel sorry for the coaching staff, but I don’t want a head coach who acts like a mental patient. I want my head coach to stay in control on the sideline. If he doesn’t, then how can he keep the players from following him into undisciplined behavior? And, by the way, does anybody have Bobby Petrino’s number down ther in Gainesville?

OMG!!! That bowling ball.......It.s my wife!!!!

Just goes to show the myth of the SEC is just that, a myth.

Sorry, SEC Follower, but as a Gator fan, this is a supreme embarrassment. Most of the players on our scout team were more highly recruited than Georgia Southern’s starters. So many of our fans will cry about the injuries, but every team has to endure those. Today was just a supreme lack of effort, and that stems from coaching. Other than the South Carolina game, this team hasn’t played hard for the coach for most of the season. It’s time for Mr. Muschamp to go.

Knee jerk firings may not help Gators. The question is what would change next year? If they had talent, it would show now. It’s really cleaned up the Gator jerks off the Georgia blogs. Kind of nice, Go Dawgs. PS. Better beat Kentucky in black tonight. Nothing a given with Grantham

Paul Johnson has just canceled Tech’s scheduled game with Ga Southern next year to replace them with Kennesaw State.
