I don’t care how jaded or critical a Dawg fan you are – bitch about the South Carolina losses, moan about coming up short in two straight SECCGs, complain about not winning the big games lately – if you can’t count this as real progress, Jack, you dead to me.
Muschamp spoke to the Gator Club of Jacksonville before a packed room at the Jacksonville Fair and Expo Center, which is about a nine-iron shot from EverBank Field, where Muschamp’s Gators made a mess of things last season — and the season before — against the Bulldogs.
The result is the Bulldogs have a rare (at least in recent decades) two-game winning streak in the series against their former starting strong safety (Muschamp).
But that Georgia winning streak is going to end soon, Muschamp vowed Tuesday night.
“Well, it’s not going to be a long winning streak, I can assure you,” Muschamp said before his speech.
Sure thing, Boom. Define “long” for us.
These days, it’s Gator fans who have Georgia on their minds. And you-know-what is still a big deal after six years.
Muschamp was asked if the Georgia game would be an extra emphasis in the offseason, like it was following the Gators’ crushing loss to Georgia in 2007, when the Bulldogs stormed the end zone after scoring their first touchdown. UF used that bitter defeat as motivation throughout the offseason.
Where’s Corch when you need him?
No predictions here about this season other than to say that if the Dawgs pull off a third win in a row, don’t try to tell me there won’t be some major sphincter tightening in Gainesville afterwards. At that point Muschamp will be working on a personal seven game losing streak in Jax. That seems respectably long to me.
