Jim McElwain has won SEC East titles in each of his first two seasons with Florida.
After the Gators’ embarrassing 42-7 loss to No. 3 Georgia on Saturday, however, speculation is running rampant that McElwain might have possibly coached his final game in the Swamp.
Lamical Perine rushed for 93 yards, Duke Dawson picked off a Jake Fromm pass and Malik Zaire made his first appearance at quarterback since Week 1 against Michigan, in what basically amounted to all of Florida’s highlights in the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.
Mark Thompson’s 1-yard touchdown run with 2 minutes, 42 seconds remaining saved Florida’s streak of 367 consecutive games without being shut out.
Florida dropped to 3-4 overall (3-3 SEC) and could very well be looking at a new coach in the not-too-distant future.
If it were up to the Florida fans, that new future would begin as soon as Saturday night.

Note: Comments are taken verbatim from Florida Gators — SEC Country and only edited for spelling.
BG Gardner: I supported Mac. But time to go. This is not working.
Emrick Hoenig: Fire the entire coaching staff.
Jeff Foster: The scoring streak is alive… The players are alive… Time to part ways with the dead coaching staff.
Jason Ryan Edenfeld: People, this has nothing to do with his wins and losses record at the University of Florida, or the play calling. It has everything to do with the death rate comments that were made earlier this week, and it’s handling. Don’t embarrass the University of Florida.
James McDonel: If Mac is fired would Nuss still call the plays? If so I’d say it wouldn’t help much. Ditch the OC too!
Hal Lively: Go gators. Now I care about beat ‘Noles. LOL.
Brendan N Denise: Fire Mac & Nuss Now!!! Stop the embarrassment!
Bradley Hodson: Keep McElwain.
Nathan Brown: At least no shutout. LOL
Keaton Hutchings: Loyalty has cost Mac and ultimately will cost him his job…franks just isn’t ready for big boy football yet and Nuss and his vanilla play isn’t worth a rub.
Randall Hicks: Mike who??? Man yaw done went and lost yaws minds. Ain’t happening.
Stephen Hudson: Only if he has a replacement… quality replacement, in mind.
Dalton Clarke: Steve Spurrier
