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.

Those that are saying that UGA needs Muschump as out DC have lost your minds. I say give Grantham next season to see how his defense plays. He has been recruiting HIS players for 3 years now. This year the defense was very young so you had to expect what happened this season was going to happen. UGA’s defense is loaded with talent and they are all coming back next year with a year of learning and taking their lumps. UGA’s defense will be great for at least the next 2 seasons.

I would LOVE to see Georgia sign Muschamp as Defensive Coordinator. I know the Florida defense looked like crap today, but his defenses have average yielding just 15 points during his entire career. The usual career move for a Div 1 Head Coach who gets fired is either to go be an assistant coach in the NFL or become an assistant coach at another D1 program. (Now and again you’ll see one become a head coach at a smaller school.)
Georgia sure needs a new DC, and Muschamp would be a good one.

Can’t blame this loss on the offense…Wow, how unprepared can a team be for a rushing attack that is the only thing they got going for them… sad coaching display
