Firing Will Muschamp Would Be The Worst Move Florida Could Make

(Follow Aaron on Twitter @Aaron_Torres) Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 48 hours (or even worse, in a world without sports television) you’ve probably heard that it was a pretty bad weekend to be a Florida Gator. It was even worse to be their head coach, Will Muschamp. The Gators lost on Saturday, but unlike so many other teams across the country, it wasn’t...

Florida eager to get started, change 4-8 to 1-0

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) It might be hard to find a team more eager for the season to begin than Florida. Coming off their worst year since 1979, the Gators are ready to start anew, end a seven-game losing streak and prove last year's 4-8 debacle was a fluke.

Florida vs. Idaho – Game Time, TV Schedule, Line, Predictions

How warm is Muschamp’s seat? The last time Florida faced a non-Power 5 school, the Gators squared off against Georgia Southern on Nov. 23, 2013. Florida lost, 26-20. The game, which dropped Florida’s record to 4-7, was the low point of the 2013 season, one of the worst campaigns in program history.  Florida starts its 2014 campaign against another FBS school in Idaho.

Will the third time be the charm for Muschamp and the Gators?

The Florida Gators Could Be the Sleeper of the SEC

As writers who cover the SEC, there are many who are split down the middle about the Florida Gators and the 2014 season. A 4-8 record will do that to you as will losing three starters in the secondary and having to retool the offensive line and linebackers this season. Some would argue this is one of the better Florida teams since the days of Urban Meyer, Tim Tebow and some guy named...

Will Muschamp's tenure in Gainesville has been a see-saw ride.
