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.

I’m guessing that Florida will go after Kirby Smart DC for Alabama

Thomas Brown or Aaron Murray’s dad? If your pal Aaron was so great as some of his numbers on paper would make you think, then why is he a loser to Top 25 teams? Why is he a loser to Top 10 teams? Why is he an SEC Championship loser? Why is he a bowl game loser?

If he was a good as he was on paper, he would have went into the draft this spring but that didn’t make fiscal sense when going lower second or high third round now does it?

Gator fans would welcome Spurrier back. Don’t know if Foley would hire him though. If Foley was gone, there’s a good chance the HBC would be back in the Swamp.

Certainly a tough season to watch if you are a dawg fan or a gator. Selfishly, I think Muschamp could turn around our defense to a top ten D within the first year, but I can’t see Granthum going anywhere.
Thanks Murray , you’re a DGD for sure. To the bitter Tech fan up above, the Dawgs will win and you know it.

Perfect for Dawgs. Hire him as our DC if he’ll accept.

LOL@ Thomas Brown’s whining. Poor, poor Aaron Murray getting hurt by a thug and no referee flagged it. OH NO, but he was body slammed and they intentionally tried to hurt him BOO HOO HOO!
Same thing we see every year when the puppies come to play Tech. The body slams, the intentional twisting of knees, the gouging of eyes, the utter lack of civilized play. But hey, it’s ok when it’s your teams MO, it means they’re tough, right?
Don’t cheer when you do it to hurt other teams, then cry when it gets done to you. Tighten your diaper, because next Saturday is gonna be fun on the Flats.
