07:29 AM ET 11.04 | In terms of bowl eligibility, "must-win" now just about covers it for Will Muschamp and the Gators. Muschamp needs to win any game, any way he can. The Gators (4-4, 3-3 SEC) have lost three in a row. To get bowl-eligible, they must win two of the final four games: homecoming against Vanderbilt on Saturday, at South Carolina Nov. 16, then back home to play Georgia Southern Nov. 23 and No. 3 Florida State Nov. 30. ... More and more, Florida's 11-2 season in 2012 is looking like it was smoke, mirrors and good fortune, with this season paralleling 2011, when Muschamp went 6-6 in the regular season and beat Ohio State in the Gator Bowl. Muschamp wouldn't speak to his future at Florida after the game and continually praised his players for their effort.

See Moniker...

Unless he goes and picks a fight with a fan by saying something like "Come on down here", he will be fine until next year. Oh wait he did that at the UGA game. He gone.

In all seriousness, he will very likely get a 4th year. SEC East title or bust.

It's not like the gatuhs are getting blown out.

And the players don't seem to have given up.

But, I'm just an outsider looking in.

Depends on how the rest of the season plays out IMO. If he get's things moving forward, he will be back - if the team continues to struggle worse and worse, he could get the boot but don't personally see that happening. Not enough candidates out there to replace him with, assuming Charlie Strong gets gobbled up by the NoFunLeague.

Wonder how long he's been kicking himself for giving up that coach-in-waiting role he had a few years ago?

I bet if he goes 9-4 or 10-3 next year, they keep him around for another year. Regardless if they win the SEc or not.

With all the injuries, I would think he gets another year

I'll contact the soothsayer to see what she thinks...
