It’s time for South Carolina’s 2016 SEC finale. In case you hadn’t heard, it comes at the site of Will Muschamp’s last coaching job: Florida.
The Gamecocks travel to Gainesville on Saturday, where a win would keep them in the SEC East title chase and secure a bowl game.
Wilson: So, I heard Will Muschamp used to coach at Florida. How do you expect the welcome to be at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium? Does playing against their former coach matter much to the players Muschamp recruited to Florida?
Abolverdi: He’ll hear loud boos when he comes out, but that’s typical for every coach of the visiting team. Knowing Muschamp, he’s not going to fazed or overwhelmed by the crowd. His former players, however, are admittedly motivated about this game. They still have a great deal of respect for Muschamp and it will be emotional to see him on the opposing sideline. At the same time, they want to play well against him and get a win against Saturday.
