GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Saturday's game against Florida State was Will Muschamp's 38th as Florida's head coach.
He has provided an opening statement to the media after all 22 wins, all 16 losses.
Perhaps the most straightforward one came after FSU's 37-7 victory Saturday, Florida's seventh consecutive loss to end a 4-8 season. It's the program's first losing...
Florida running back Trey Burton won't return against Florida State because of a shoulder injury.
Burton hurt his left shoulder on his second carry of the game Saturday, another blow for the injury-riddled Gators.
Coach Will Muschamp said at halftime that the game plan called for Burton to line up at quarterback for 35 plays. He ran twice for 47 yards, including a 50-yarder...

There comes a time when you are expected to go out and win the game. The Florida Gators are team turmoil right now, but Saturday was that day. Afforded a schedule break with FCS Georgia Southern, Florida was supposed to roll out there and win despite all the issues they have faced this year. That didn’t happen and third string quarterback turned starter Skyler Mornhinweg says there...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. The Gators made history Saturday.
None they will want to remember though.
The cold hard facts from Saturday's 26-20 loss to Georgia Southern read like this:
-- The Gators lost to a Division I-AAFCS team for the first time -- they were 15-0 previously -- since the division formed in 1978; Georgia Southern defeated a Division IFBS program for the first time...
Let's take a look back at the weird, wild and ultimately memorable moments across college football in Week 13.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it: Georgia Southern's 26-20 win in the Swamp over Florida was the Gators' first loss to an FCS team since 1946 against Villanova. What's more impressive is how Eagles did it. GSU didn't complete a pass on three attempts...
Kevin Ellison ran for two touchdowns, Jerick McKinnon had a huge score late and Georgia Southern stunned Florida 26-20 Saturday in what will go down as the worst loss in school history.
No lower-division team had ever beaten the Gators, who won their previous seven games against Football Championship Subdivision teams by an average of 45 points.
So this was a shocker, even though...

It’s safe to say that the wheels have completely come off in Gainesville, Florida. The Gators, who will not be bowl eligible this season, have just lost to FCS school Georgia Southern. The Eagles ran the ball 54 times for 429 yards, out-gaining UF by 150 yards. They won despite not completing one pass (0/3) on the afternoon.
On the game’s final play, Gators quarterback Skyler...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The promising start has faded. The 3-0 SEC record turned into a 3-5 finish due to a list of season-ending injuries that kept growing and growing.
But after last week's 19-14 loss at South Carolina, Florida head coach Will Muschamp could at least lean on these nine words at his Monday press conference: "We had no other significant injuries from the game...
The Florida Gators (4-6, 3-5 SEC) will look to end their five-game losing streak when they take on the Georgia Southern Eagles (6-4, 4-4 SoCon) this Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 2 p.m. and the game will be televised on Pay-per-view.
Florida concluded it Southeastern Conference season last week with a 19-14 loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks in...
The Gators went to Columbia with a game plan to avoid Jadeveon Clowney. The last thing offensive coordinator Brent Pease wanted to do was drop redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg to pass too many times and allow Clowney to flip momentum of the game with one play. As the Gators move forward against Georgia Southern and Florida State, Pease expects that to change.
University of Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy is unlikely to play against Georgia Southern on Saturday due to a lingering shoulder injury. Murphy first injured injured his shoulder against LSU in October as reported in SportsInjuryAlert.com and reinjured it against Vanderbilt nine days ago.
Florida coach Will Muschamp said redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg is the Gators quarterback...
Pushed into taking his first collegiate snap at South Carolina, redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg did what was asked. He handed the ball off, got the offense in the looks it wanted and threw the ball just twice in the first half. That should change going forward. Florida head coach Will Muschamp said on Monday he expects Mornhinweg to throw more this weekend.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- In times like these, there is no neutral ground.
Fans are on one side of the fence or the other.
The Gators are down. Down lower than they have been since a man could wear a leisure suit and not get laughed at.
On one side of the fence are those fans that want to kick them while they're down, only interested in the final score regardless of circumstances...
The Florida Gators won the first half on Saturday against the South Carolina Gamecocks 14-6. Two weeks ago, they won the second half against the Georgia Bulldogs 17-0. The real story, however, lies in the other halves of each of those games. For the second time in the last three games, the Gators couldn’t put together 60 minutes of football and as a result now sit at 4-6 after...
Junior running back Mack Brown ran his hardest, the offensive line pounded away all game, freshman running back Kelvin Taylor ran hard, red-shirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg did almost everything he was asked to do. In the end, the Florida Gators just had too many obstacles to overcome to get the job done Saturday night on the road against a top 11 team in South Carolina.
Elliott Fry kicked four field goals and No. 11 South Carolina won its school-record 16th straight at home, sending banged-up Florida to its fifth consecutive loss with a 19-14 victory Saturday night.
The Gamecocks (8-2, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) struggled to score points against the Gators' SEC-leading defense until Fry gave them a 16-14 lead with a 22-yard field goal with...

Florida freshman Skyler Mornhinweg will start for injured quarterback Tyler Murphy against No. 11 South Carolina on Saturday night.
Murphy sprained his throwing shoulder against LSU last month and was sore after last week's loss to Vanderbilt. Gators offensive coordinator Brent Pease had said all week Murphy's status wouldn't be known until game time.

As previously reported here...
Will Muschamp was given a vote of confidence this week—he will be the head coach of the Florida Gators in 2014. Both athletic director Jeremy Foley and University of Florida president Bernie Machen have come out in support on Muschamp; Foley going as far as to say he is 1,000% convinced Muschamp is the right man for the job. Debates will rage on, but are now as pointless as are...
