Florida Gator Football 2014 | Bittersweet end to the Muschamp Era

2014 was supposed to be the year that the Gators would roar back to life and save Will Muschamp’s career. 2014  was touted as the Revenge Tour. Instead, the Gators season started off with disappointment in the cancelling of the Idaho game due to weather, and ended in an empty, unfulfilling, heap of an emotional wreck.

Week 2 9/6/2014 | Florida Gators 65, Eastern Michigan Eagles 0 | Gators pick on EMU to end seven-game losing streak
