The Florida Gators football program hit a shocking low on Saturday afternoon. In front of thousands of dumbfounded fans in The Swamp, coach Will Muschamp’s injury-riddled squad lost to FCS-level Georgia Southern, 26-20.
The loss dropped the Gators to 4-7 on the year, officially eliminating the team from postseason contention.
Georgia Southern did not complete a single pass all game. Eagles quarterback Kevin Ellison attempted a mere three passes and completed none of them. However, Ellison gashed the Gators with his legs, tallying 118 yards on the ground himself. As a team, Southern piled up a whopping 429 rushing yards against Florida’s defense.
Afterwards, many fans took to Twitter. Some were confused; some were mad; and some were ready to put Muschamp’s head on a stake.
Good news, Will Muschamp! Bruised egos and embarrassing butt whippings are covered under Obamacare. #SilverLining
