Ask Farrell: Is it time for South Carolina to move on from Muschamp?

The last few weeks at South Carolina have not gone well and they have stoked conversation about whether Will Muschamp will be coaching the Gamecocks next season. South Carolina lost at home to Appalachian State, 20-15, in a game in which it had 21 rushing yards but did post 325 passing yards in a loss. This past weekend, the Gamecocks traveled to Texas A&M and got throttled, 30-6, where the offense sputtered again with just 45 rushing yards on 17 carries.
