Is UGA a Must-Win for Muschamp?

Will Muschamp needs to be careful, because he is entering very dangerous territory with the Gator Nation. Florida has a chance to go 8-0 and clinch the SEC East before November.

But we also have a chance to lose to Georgia in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1988-89. We also have a chance to get beat on Saturday and watch the Dawgs play for SEC Championship for the second year in a row. That would be the the first time that’s happened since Ron Zook was in charge in Gainesville. This is not an acceptable outcome.

Maybe at the start of the season we would have been a little more open to the idea. Would you have been pretty happy with a 7-1 record heading into the Missouri game back in August? Of course you would. It would show clear and definitive progress in a program that’s been backsliding since the 2010 Sugar Bowl. But the Gators are 7-0 now, and the expectation is to go 8-0, 9-0, 10-0 and 11-0 before we roll into Tallahassee. By then the expectation, thought to be completely unreasonable just a few short months ago, will be to go 12-0.

Muschamp has reawakened the monster...
