    I'm wondering if the ban will carry over to the new board? :paranoid:

    Apparently Coach Muschamp got into it with a fan while leaving the field on Saturday in Jacksonville.

    From the article:
    Even after the game, emotions ran ugly as a fan in an orange shirt heckled Florida coach Will Muschamp and gave him an obscene gesture as Muschamp left the field. At one point, Muschamp was heard yelling at a fan, “Why don’t you come down here?”

    Muschamp declined to talk much about the incident after the game.

    “I don’t spend two seconds thinking about that,” he said. “I just move on. We have to coach our football team and control the things you can control and that’s what we’re going to do.”

    I don't think Coach Boom is long for Gainesville. That job is just too big for a first time head coach.

    It's not so great to be a Florida Gator at the moment.

    Soon after the establishment of the University of Florida in Gainesville in 1906, the university'sfootball, baseball, and track teams began competing at University Athletic Field, which was simply a grassy playing surface flanked by low bleachers located along West University Avenue immediately north of the present stadium site. Permanent bleachers were installed in 1911, and the facility was rechristened "Fleming Field" in honor of former Florida governor Francis P. Fleming.[6] Besides the university's sports teams, Fleming Field hosted several Major League Baseball spring traininggames and practices featuring the Boston Red Sox,New York Giants, Philadelphia Athletics, and Boston Braves, among others.[6]

    From 1911-1930, Florida's football squads posted a 49-7-1 record at University Athletic / Fleming Field. But because of the facility's limited capacity (approximately 5000) and the relative inaccessibility of Gainesville in the early 20th Century, most "home" games against top opponents were scheduled at larger venues in Jacksonville or Tampa, with a few also played in St. Petersburg or Miami.[7][8]

    Gator football first earned national prominence in the 1920s, prompting incoming university presidentJohn J. Tigert to begin a drive to construct a new and larger stadium upon his arrival in 1928.[9] With state funding unavailable at the cusp of the Great Depression, the semi-independent University of Florida Athletic Association was organized to raise funds and oversee the project. To expedite construction, Tigert and ten supporters of the Florida's athletic program took out personal loans to cover the $118,000 required to build the planned 22,000-seat football stadium.[10][11]

    Construction began on April 16, 1930 and immediately faced serious engineering and geotechnical obstacles related to natural ground water and drainage.[10] The stadium was built in a shallow ravine, with the lower thirty-two rows of the east, west, and north stands below the level of the surrounding land.[10] When excavation reached the water table, water began to pour into the construction site from the north end, miring men, mules, and mule-drawn equipment in the resulting mud.[10] The drainage challenge was ultimately resolved by the installation of massive underground culverts leading to Graham Pond, located two blocks south of the stadium site.[10] Problems solved, the construction team of eighty laborers and mules completed Florida Field in time for the November 8, 1930 homecoming game againstAlabama, the dominant Southern Conference team of the day.[12][13] Florida Field was rededicated in 1934 to the memory of Florida servicemen who died in World War I, and a plaque was placed on the outside wall behind the old north end zone as a memorial.[3]

    Most Gator fans hope and pray that they lose out in hopes of that being enough for them to boot CWM.....plenty of people begging it happens so they can try to swoop up Coach Strong whom many wanted in the first place.

    Seems like a pipe dream to me given they're one year off of a BCS-berth and have been plagued by injuries. I think he's on the hot seast next year, though.
