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.
FINAL: Georgia Southern 26, Florida 20. Gators (4-7) will have first losing season since 1979. Gave up 429 rush yds. http://t.co/f8eumFiGOj

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.
Will Muschamp terms UF loss to Ga. Southern an "embarrassment"

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.
