Will Muschamp has done a fantastic job as the head man for the Florida Gators, especially coming off an impressive 11-win season, but what he hasn’t done is beat Florida’s biggest SEC East rival, which happens to be his alma mater, Georgia, either of his first two seasons.
But when speaking to the Jacksonville Gator Club, Muschamp vowed the Dawgs’ winning streak wouldn’t be a long one, via Palm Beach Post.
“Well, it’s not going to be a long winning streak, I can assure you,” he said. “We feel very comfortable.
“Obviously, last year, when you turn the ball over six times, you’re not going to win many games. We fought through a lot of adversity we created for ourselves in the game. It just didn’t work out… Very disappointed for our football team and the Gator Nation that we didn’t get the job done. Looking forward to the game this year.”
Take his words with a grain of salt, considering he was riling up the Jacksonville Florida fans, but it just fuels the ever-burning ember and the mystique that the Florida-Georgia game possesses.
Georgia beat the No. 2-ranked Gators 17-9 last season and 24-20 in 2011.
The Florida-Georgia rivalry is the second-biggest in the SEC for 2013.
