Canada Soldier Shot  
 Capital on Lockdown

The Canadian Parliament is on lockdown after an armed man shot a soldier standing guard at Canada`s National War Memorial before being killed in a shootout inside the nearby Parliament building (pictured).

There are unconfirmed reports of possible additional shooters. As a result, much of downtown Ottawa is locked down also.

Officials say shots were also fired near the Rideau Center, a shopping mall near the other two sites.

At least two uniformed Canadians, the soldier and a Parliament security guard, were reportedly shot. Ottawa Hospital has reported receiving three patients, two of whom are in stable condition.

At this point, there is no information on the number, motives, or even sex of the shooter or shooters.

The Madd Man - Mark Miller
Being a head coach for a major college football program is a lucrative endeavor. It is also a stressful one with very little security. Rome`s own Will Muschamp waited a long time for his chance to ascend to the lofty position at Florida after being the head coach in waiting at Texas for a few years. Born in Rome but spending a good chunk of his childhood in Gainesville Florida, Will seemed like a perfect fit for the job with the Gators.

A little less than four years later that endeavor seems to be ending in crushing defeat.

Muschamp`s Gators are 7-11 since the beginning of the 2013 season and a disappointing 15-14 in the SEC overall. Those numbers will not keep you employed at Florida. Saturday`s embarrassing loss to Missouri where his Gators became the only team in fifteen years to give up a kick return for a touchdown, a punt return for a touchdown, a fumble return for a touchdown and an interception return for a touchdown would appear to have sealed Muschamp`s fate at Florida. Although the UAA has made the statement that no announcement concerning the coaching staff would take place between now and the UGA game on November 1st, it is pretty clear in Gainesville Florida that the Muschamp era is over.

As a big Gator fan, this comes with mixed emotions. I like Will Muschamp. I feel that he is a good man who tried to do things the right way and I really wanted him to be successful at Florida.

Unfortunately, he looks to be in over his head at this job. Great coordinators do not always make great head coaches and this appears to be one of those cases where defensive coordinator is the summit for a coach. I never like to see any coaching staff fired. It isn`t just the head coach but usually all of the assistant coaches as well. Several families get thrown into complete turmoil. Offensive coordinator Kurt Roper just took the job this year and moved his family from North Carolina where he held the same job a Duke. I am sure he was told that he would get two years to make the turnaround, but nobody anticipated things being this bad. As much as Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley would like to give this group some more time, the results have been too horrific.

Last season, Muschamp`s Gators ended the longest current streak of bowl appearances in the nation when the team went 4-8 amid a rash of injuries. This season, most people figured that the staff and team only had to show decent improvement and get seven or eight wins to earn another season to prove they could right the ship. Florida is currently 3-3 with five games left. That means that the Gators must win three of the final five games just to avoid failing to be bowl eligible for back to back seasons. Florida will be decided underdogs in three of those five games. A second consecutive losing season isn`t just a real possibility but it is likely.

It doesn`t matter how good a person a coach is or how hard he is trying to do things the right way. You can`t have back to back losing seasons at Florida. UF is the flagship school in one of, if not the, most talent rich state in the country. On top of that, the SEC East was unusually weak this year. Even the wins were less than impressive with a last minute comeback victory over Tennessee and a triple overtime win over Kentucky, neither of which are very good right now.

The bottom line is that Will Muschamp has failed to get the job done in Gainesville and barring a dramatic turnaround where the Gators win out this season his tenure at Florida will end sometime between now and December. Muschamp should not hang his head however. He inherited a program that had serious behavior and attitude issues from the previous regime. Urban Meyer won championships at Florida but make no mistake about it, Urban left a dumpster fire behind him in Gainesville.

Will Muschamp did an admirable job of cleaning up that mess. He even managed an 11-2 season in 2012 only narrowly missing a spot in the national championship game. But, those eleven wins where unquestionably the result of a dominant defense, probably the best in the nation that year. The defensive coordinator was Dan Quinn who left after that season to take the same position with the Seattle Seahawks where he fields the best defense in the NFL. After Quinn`s departure even the defense has gotten steadily worse. The team has been in constant freefall since. Therefore, as much as I like Will Muschamp the man, I have seen enough of Will Muschamp the head coach. The Florida Gators need to move on and I have little doubt that they will do just that.
