Florida Gators Will Muschamp has had many ups-and-downs during his four-year tenure in Gainesville, Florida. Following Saturday’s heart-breaking 30-27 to Louisiana State, Muschamp picked up his sixth loss at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

He is now 17-6 at the Swamp. This was his first loss at home this season.

Last season, he went 3-3 at home, including losses to Vanderbilt, Georgia Southern, and Florida State. While the Vanderbilt and Florida State games were double-figure losses, the Georgia Southern loss was the worst since it came to an FCS school.

In his first two years, he was 12-2, including losses to #3 Alabama and Florida State in 2011.

His predecessor Urban Meyer went 38-5 at the Swamp over six years. He was 27-2 in the first four years, before going 11-3 in the final two years.

As Muschamp continues his tenure, he is the second coach since 1990 that has six losses at home. Ron Zook, who was the Gators head coach from 2003-2005, went 13-6 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

Before he could coach the final game against Florida State, Zook was fired, before Urban Meyer came into town. Meyer was the Gators head coach from 2006 to 2010 season, leading Florida to two National Championships.

Muschamp, who received a lot of criticism last year after going 4-8, he was able to keep his job. At the end of this season, Athletic Director Jeremy Foley will determine his future depending on how successful the team is at the end of this season.

At the moment, the Gators are 3-2 and 2-2 within the conference. They are currently in third place in the SEC East.

Georgia leads with a 5-1 record and 3-1 mark in Conference play, while Kentucky is second at 5-1 and has a 2-1 mark in the SEC.

Florida defeated the Wildcats 36-30 in triple overtime on September 13th.
