Boom isn’t handling 0-3 very well, I’m afraid.
Despite rallying from 20 points down, the Gators (4-4, 3-3 SEC) are in danger of one of their worst records in the past three decades. The fact that Muschamp is now 0-3 against Georgia, which had not beaten UF three straight times since the late 1980s, will inflame an already aggravated fan base.
The tension mounted to the point that as Muschamp was exiting the field, he shouted back at a fan who was harassing him. The man used an obscene gesture, and Muschamp responded by pointing and yelling at him before his state trooper escort steered him into the locker room.
“I don’t spend two seconds thinking about that,” he said of general hostility from the crowd. “We just move on. We’ve gotta coach our football team. Control the things you can control. That’s what we’re gonna do. And we’re gonna be fine, I can assure you that.”
Talk is cheap, Bubba. Especially when your season may boil down to the game against Vanderbilt.
On the other hand, nobody can accuse Muschamp of being oblivious to what a Gator fan does.
