I don't care about one game. But we were 7-6. It's just not that much better 3 years later. We've beaten 1 ranked team in that time with many opportunities.


Injuries seem to be a theme for Muschamp. Maybe he really is just an unlucky guy. Not sure how that's a positive.
That year 3 for Muschamp at UF that team started out 4-1 (3-0) before being gutted by injuries and finished at 4-8. If they had stayed healthy they're likely in contention for the East that year not losing to GA Southern.

The reality is if our defense wasn't gutted by injury we would have been sitting 8-4 at the end of the regular season because with a semi healthy defense there's no way we lose to UF. The record against ranked opponents has to improve but if you're looking at his record there this is really the first year you can criticize him for it. His first year our talent was laughable and we had no business beating a ranked team and we still beat UT, his second year I'm pretty sure our only 2 ranked teams were top 5 teams and again not reasonable to expect wins against top 5 teams given a rebuilding roster. This past year we really needed a ranked win or two and didn't get it. We'll see if he can correct it in year 4 because with what we have returning there are no excuses to go 0fer against ranked teams, lord knows we'll have the opportunities with that schedule.

As for injuries being a theme, the first 2 years here we weren't hit very hard by injuries. If it continues in year 4 it's a red flag, if it doesn't that's 1 year in 4 here. As for being an unlucky guy I'd say luck has a tendency to balance itself out given enough time as long as you're putting in the hard work.

I get we're not where everyone wants us to be at, especially with UGA and CU doing what they're doing. But the reality was whoever took over this job was looking at a 4-5 year rebuild, we just finished year 3 so the rebuild is still ongoing. The roster talent has increased each season and 2019 looks to continue that trend.

Well, this was a valid observation, until the administration revealed the rebrand.

How many years out of Muschamp’s total as head coach has his teams been hit by the injury bug above the norm?

2?

One thing though, It also seems like they did a good job figuring out how to keep Deebo healthy, so I don't think this is something they don't think about and account for.

I'd say 2. Our 2018 team and the 4-8 UF team. Pure quantity those are the only 2 really bad years. Like all other teams some years you get lucky on who gets hurt or unlucky on the normal years but those years aren't red flags that there's an injury problem.

I think one of Muschamp’s biggest challenges this off season is to try to determine what caused all those injures. I understand many injures are just part of the game, but this year, it was over the top. If it continues to happen, we will never be able to become an elite team no matter how good our recruiting becomes.

So if it has only been 2 years is it a concerning trend?

If it were 2 consecutive years, yes. But 5 years apart, at 2 different schools? Probably not.

Muschamp needs to try to figure this out.
Weight training......too much or too little
Too much hitting
UA shoes

This years injury bug is clearly Beyoncé’s fault.
