Will Muschamp coached his first game for the Gators September 3, 2011. The Will Muschamp era officially begins October 1, 2011, in the Swamp. The Gators will take on #2 Alabama Saturday night in Gainesville. This is why Muschamp came to Florida to play in huge games. This is the 1st real test for Muschamp and his Gator squad and a game that could shape the Gator season. With a win the Gators would improve to 5-0 jump into the top 10 and change the minds of many critics in college football. The Muschamp era will not be defined by this game alone, but it will start with this game. Go Gators!
