Florida QB Feleipe Franks defends himself for shushing fans

The loss dropped Muschamp (above) to 1-2 against the team he coached from 2011-2014 - and 2-7 in this SEC East rivalry. On two of South Carolina's final three possessions of the game, five of the seven running plays were RPOs on which Bentley chose the running play because of the number of players the Gators had devoted to stop the passing game.

"I guess that's big, right?" Beat writer Will Sammon and another Gators-related media personality will discuss the most topical points and what was learned.

Florida entered Saturday's game on a two-game losing streak.

But Franks was the player of the game, even if he thrived in a villain role.

Still, the home crowd turned on Franks quickly Saturday by booing him after consecutive plays on the first series in which he fumbled and badly overthrew a receiver. But at the same time, I'm an emotional player.

Under Jim McElwain, Florida would have not come back to win this game. I just feel like he's a competitor. I told him he was going to get booed.

Florida and SC kicked off at noon and the game can be seen on ESPN.

Franks' second-quarter TD was a physical run in which he made a SC defender miss as he ran over another defender on his way into the end zone. 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).

"We called the same things we were calling to get to that point", Muschamp said. There are no hard feelings. "Just go back to work".

Bentley's next drive? Same result, this time finding Kyle Markway to put SC up 14-0. "I'm glad I'm a Gamecock". 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.

SC has several other coaches who also worked at Florida, including linebackers coach Mike Peterson and defensive co-ordinator Travaris Robinson. "We kept playing until the last whistle".

Florida coach Dan Mullen has as many losses at the Swamp this season as he did during his first stint in Gainesville. They are 3-2 in those.

The No. 15 team in the country is on the field this afternoon. Score a touchdown and get off the sidelines so we can coach you. "It doesn't go the other way". You sell out, you win.
