It was another tumultuous loss for the Florida Gators on Saturday. The Gators looked to hit rock bottom in the first half only to make a game of it and fall short. As bad as it was, the Gators seemed to make a few strides in the second half that may be a sliver of hope for things to come. We talk about that and the issues they are still having on the message boards at FightinGators.com.

Welcome to the first November edition of the Starting 11.
1. Florida is in real trouble
Two crazy stats: Ron Zook is now guaranteed to have a better SEC record than Will Muschamp after three years as coach.
Muschamp is now 0-7 in Cocktail Parties -- 0-4 as a Georgia player and 0-3 as a Florida coach.
The Gators have been to 22 straight bowl games, but a 23rd is not a foregone...
This Florida Gators fan is clearly nuts for football. In fact, he was so focused on the game (or camera) against Georgia that he didn’t feel the peanut shells just casually sitting there on his head, courtesy of the fan behind him:
Everyone behind him seems to notice the peanuts except the fan and his buddy standing next to him — tough luck.
During this weekend's Georgia-Florida matchup, the cameras caught this poor fan getting a head full of peanut shells. We approve.
The Florida Gators continued their string of losses with their third in a row Saturday. This time at the hands of hated rival Georgia. The Gators looked dead in the water falling behind 17-0, but rallied from a 23-3 deficit at halftime to trail just 23-20 at the start of the fourth quarter.

The Georgia Bulldogs will travel to take on the Florida Gators on Saturday in a match-up of two SEC schools whose seasons have not gone the way they had planned.
Georgia (4-3) saw any chances of National Championship dreams dashed weeks ago as injuries mounted, while Florida (4-3) has been playing out the season seemingly since it began...
Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray was spotted pointing to the scoreboard to remind the Gators that his team was enjoying a healthy lead.

The Florida Gators have been plagued by bad coaching decisions and foolish penalties all season. The loss to the Georgia Bulldogs was no different.
Billy Donovan has warned about it since before the Gators opened practice. This Florida team has a ways to go on the defensive end. The Gators ended last season third in the country, allowing just 54.4 points per game. Limited numbers in preseason practice has the Florida defense off to a slow start after allowing 88 points to Florida Southern in Friday’s exhibition win.
At times, the Florida offense struggled getting down the field and making plays when it mattered the most. The 23-20 loss to Georgia knocks Florida out of the running for an SEC Championship, but quarterback Tyler Murphy has a lot to say about the loss and how to come back from it.
