Florida QB Tyler Murphy still day-to-day with shoulder injury

There’s a chance that Florida will be without quarterback Tyler Murphy for the second-straight game.

The junior sat out the Gators’ 19-14 loss to No. 12 South Carolina this past Saturday due to a shoulder injury that he first suffered against LSU in mid-October and re-aggravated against Vanderbilt a week ago.

“I’m still kind day-to-day … still getting treatment,” said Murphy, who has a shoulder injury that has been called a sprain but is raising suspicion it’s actually torn. “I’m hoping to get back out there, if not (Monday) then sometime for later on this week.”

Freshman Skyler Mornhinweg got the starting nod against the Gamecocks and acquitted himself decently well, completing 10 of 13 for 107 yards, with one interception. He’ll start this weekend against Georgia Southern if Murphy can’t go.

The Gators have lost five in a row and need to win their next two to become bowl eligible. In all likelihood, however, UF is about to finish with its first losing season since 1979.

    As much as I hate to admit it to my ‘Noles friends, I’m just hoping you guys win by less than 40. Bottom line, this year we suck. Blame it on injuries if you want, but every team deals with injuries. That’s a poor excuse. When you recruit at an elite level program, you recruit DEPTH. You plug-and-play through the injuries. We can’t. I think the problem goes way beyond that. Our offense is downright offensive. We couldn’t spell touchdown if you spotted us the “T’ and the “D”.

    I’ll quote the former Tampa Bay Bucs coach, John McKay. When asked what he thought about his team’s execution, he replied, “I’m in favor of it”. Classic… and appropriate.

    I think it’ll be a 30 plus point game going into the 4th quarter and then you’ll see Florida put up some point in garbage time.

    The good news is that he’ll miss the Georgia Southern game that Florida has no business losing. If they lose that game, fire Muschamp. But they will pull it out.

    The bad news is that it doesn’t matter who the QB is when the Gators play the Seminoles. FSU beats them by at least 3 TDs.

    Think of how embarrassing this is to the Florida AD.
    Your in-state archrival is stomping you into the ground.

    All that elite Florida high school talent will be watching.

    Florida State is going to a BCS bowl.
    Florida won’t go to any bowl.

    FSU will be a top 5 team next year. Florida.. not so much.

    Muschamp better pull off an amazing year next year, this seems like more the normal for the Gators unlike last years team.
