This is the fourth in a series of looking at the 10-year trends of SEC football teams.
Here’s a look at Florida’s 10-year trend.
The Gators have taken a bit of a dip since Urban Meyer’s salad days. After posting a 7-6 mark his first season as Florida’s head coach, Will Muschamp ramped it up last year, guiding the Gators to an 11-2 mark. Florida’s year did end on a bit of a downer with that loss to Charlie Strong, a former Florida defensive coordinator, in the Sugar Bowl.
Muschamp still has a way to go to match the Urbanator, who was 65-15 with a pair of BCS trophies during his six seasons at The Swamp. Meyer retired for one season before taking over at Ohio State, where he already has the Buckeyes in position to dominate the Big 10.
In the past eight years, Florida has had six seasons of nine or more wins. Ron Zook failed in trying to succeed Steve Spurrier, but Muschamp appears to be off to a better start in succeeding Meyer.
