Every trip to Jacksonville brings with it the same question to Florida coach Will Muschamp: When are you going to beat Georgia?
Prior to tonight’s Gator Gathering appearance at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds, he was asked about losing two straight to the Bulldogs and whether Florida is in danger of sliding into a prolonged slump in the rivalry.
“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.”
Even with the turnovers, Florida was driving to tie the game in the final minutes before tight end Jordan Reed fumbled near the Georgia end zone. The Bulldogs won 17-9 to follow up their 24-20 victory in 2011.
