07:27 AM ET 11.14 | On the upside, Jeremy Foley offered unwavering support of Will Muschamp on Wednesday, but these are hard times in Gainesville. UF quarterback Tyler Murphy is day-to-day with a sprained throwing shoulder, creating yet another quandary for [Muschamp] and his reeling Gators. If Murphy is unable to play Saturday night at South Carolina, the Gators would be forced to turn to redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. Mornhinweg, son of longtime NFL coach Marty Mornhinweg, has not taken a snap this season. ... Even with Murphy banged up and struggling big time during Saturday's 34-17 loss Saturday at home to Vanderbilt, Muschamp stuck with him "because I think he's our best opportunity to win." But Murphy has not been the same player since he suffered a shoulder sprain Oct. 12 at LSU.

Zook may take over for him. You know, they could just save money and stay home, losing 1-0 is not too big of a loss.

Darth Foley gave about as good of a HC endorsement as you can give, we shall see if it proves to be the proverbial kiss-of-death or not. He even got the prez Machen in on the action.

As for the QB deal, I say let Mornhinweg get in there and see what he can do if Murphy isn't 100%. You can always put Murphy in if Mornhinweg craters, and work within his limitations.

The season is shot anyways, so its not like you are sacrificing anything other than a redshirt, and you may find a gem in the rough in the process.

Yes, Sir, if you do not show up and forfeit the game it is 1-0, like the one in the past two weeks that happened.
