The Florida Gators have lost four straight games…
Did I really just say that? When was the last time Florida lost four straight (I honestly don’t know)?
To top it off, Vanderbilt was the most recent team to rock the Gators with a 34-17 and it came in UF’s homecoming game. Yikes! The Commodores hadn’t won at the Swamp since 1945 and they made it look incredibly easy.
It’s not like Vandy came in rocking a great record or a truly threatening roster either. Before the game the ‘Dores were 4-4 and 1-4 in the SEC. Then they came in with a backup quarterback. The stage was set for Florida, point blank, yet they fell short. Actually they got hammered.
You get the point, but the critics are out, boy are they out. Ben Griffin wasn’t even close to full for the first time in a long time yesterday. They already lost to Miami. Chances are they will get blown out by 12th ranked South Carolina next week and No. 2 FSU to end their season, which would leave them completely out of a bowl. They’d better beat Georgia Southern in two weeks at least, but at this point that’s no sure thing.
The question is, could coach Will Muschamp be fired after a single season? Even with all the issues right now, would that really be an option?
The Gators have fallen victim to the worst injury bug this season, maybe of the last decade in the conference. Their losses are mostly respectable in the grand scheme of things, until yesterday.
I guess we’ll see, but to me it’s stupid to even be considering this from a Florida perspective. Maybe they’re not, but the negative thoughts are out there. The excitement around the program was bubbling after the Muschamp hire, but it’s a restless situation until otherwise stated in Florida.
