Will Muschamp's angle is new as first-year Florida head coach

Will Muschamp is hoping the Georgia-Florida rivalry, which resumes next Saturday, works out better for him as a Gator.

The first-year Florida head coach walked on at Georgia in 1990, redshirted that season and then played four years at safety, starting as a senior in 1994. In his five years in Georgia's program, the Bulldogs were 0-5 against the Gators, with three of those losses by 30 points or more.

"There weren't many good ones, that was for sure," Muschamp said this week.

When Muschamp was a senior, the game was played on Florida's campus due to reconstruction of Jacksonville's stadium that accompanied the arrival of the NFL's Jaguars. The Gators won 52-14 in Gainesville and 52-17 the following year in Athens, and those remain the only Georgia-Florida games played on campus since the inception of the Southeastern Conference in 1933.
