Did South Carolina’s offense get conservative late? Muschamp doesn’t think so

South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley

SC entered the season looking to compete in the SEC Eastern Division after winning nine games a year ago.

"You got to play for so much more", said tight end R.J. Raymond, who delivered a passionate speech to teammates after the latest loss. We wanted to make them burn their second timeout and we were able to get the first down on third down with the sweep to Deebo (Samuel).

"Franks dived across the goal line on fourth down from inside the 1-yard line to put the Gators (7-3, 5-3 Southeastern Conference, No. 15 CFP) ahead for the first time all day and for good". Both ended in a SC receiver left wide open for a touchdown catch.

It's pretty normal for a player to want to shut a crowd up, but usually he's on the visiting team.

Mullen and the 19th-ranked Gators have a two-game losing streak in which nobody played well, chaos at quarterback, rumours of a locker room scuffle and speculation that a few upperclassmen are considering shutting it down in preparation for the National Football League draft.

Florida amassed 367 total yards on the ground - putting up another huge number on coordinator Travaris Robinson's unit, which entered the game ranked No. 12 in the SEC in rushing defense.

Coach Dan Mullen sounded unconcerned about the injuries on Monday, when he said, "We've got a bunch of guys banged up and battered, but on the training report there's nothing that should prevent anybody (from playing)".

"I'm a super emotional player", Franks said. There are no hard feelings.

Bentley's next drive? Same result, this time finding Kyle Markway to put SC up 14-0. That's just the way things go in that situation. To say Muschamp's squad has underwhelmed would be an understatement, but had SC been able to hold on for the upset over Florida it probably would have been an even-money bet to equal last year's 9-4 mark.

The Gators have six fifth-year seniors who signed with Florida before Muschamp's final season in 2014.

Florida coach Dan Mullen has as many losses at the Swamp this season as he did during his first stint in Gainesville.

"We were running the same things we did early in the game and having a lot of success", Muschamp said. The Gators are 3-2 at home. "It doesn't go the other way".

"Well, we had a seven-point lead and you're on the road. That's how it works".
