Muschamp apologizes, promises to curb the cursing

Florida's Will Muschamp apologized Tuesday for using foul language on the sidelines during Saturday's loss to Auburn. After running back Chris Rainey muffed a punt, Muschamp could be heard on ESPN's live broadcast berating the officials and using multiple swear words. 

Video of the incident has since made the rounds on blogs and forums.

Muschamp was upset at the officials for not calling a kick-catch interference penalty on the play. He called a timeout during which he continued to yell at multiple officials. Muschamp said Tuesday that he would cut back on the cursing. 

"I do want to apologize for my language on the sidelines the other night," he said. "That’s not something that’s going to be tolerated at the University of Florida, first of all by me or anyone in our program, but that’s certainly not representative of this program, what this university’s about."

But the high-energy, aggressive nature with which he coaches is here to stay. Muschamp has said repeatedly that he would not change his demeanor, and he didn't back off from that Tuesday.

"It’s just the language. It’s hard when you got a 6-year-old and 10-year-old at home and you got to go home and explain to them what you said — that’s not good, and that’s not how we’re going to run our program. As far as the sideline stuff is concerned, we’re just going to be who we are. I’m just going to apologize for my language and nothing else." 

Bottom line: Don't expect Coach Boom to be changing anytime soon.

Will Muschamp wouldn’t comment on a call on a muffed punt after Florida’s 17-6 loss to Auburn on Saturday, but the first-year coach apologized on Monday for some profanity in his rant to the officials that was caught by ESPN cameras.

“I do want to apologize for my language on the sidelines the other night,” he said at the his bye-week press conference. “That’s not something that’s going to be tolerated here at the University of Florida, first of all, by me and our program. That’s certainly not representative of what this program and this university is about.”

Muschamp was upset that the back judge didn’t make a call for interference after Chris Rainey signaled fair catch and was bumped. ESPN mics caught him saying, “You guys ain’t got no guts, man. Throw the flag. Be a (expletive) man.”

Muschamp reiterated Monday what he has said since arriving at Florida – he’s going to be himself on the sideline.

“It’s hard when you’ve got a 6-year-old and a 10-year-old at home and you’ve got to go home and explain to them what you said,” Muschamp said. “So that’s not good and that’s not how we’re going to run our program. That’s it. Again, as far as the sideline stuff’s concerned, we’re going to be who we are. I’m just apologizing for the language, nothing else.”

send ur kids to UF, where you can get cursed on national tv by the coach?? no thanks.

Felony assault? Tolerated

Drug use? Tolerated

Academic fraud? Tolerated

Battery on campus police? Tolerated

Rampant drug use? Tolerated

Profanity by a football coach in the heat of battle? Whoa. That is where we draw the line here at UTtailer.

And you wonder why that sheepskin is worthless.

The dude who posted above me is none other than UFelony30andmore. If you guys are not familiar with his tale of woe, he was raised in the Broward County area, but represents the 3-0-5 to the fullest. He lives in Central Florida (the Orlando area) and is generally known as "the dork" who walks around with UM gear 24-7, even though he never actually attended the school. No matter. He's deeply frustrated because chicks ignore him, and Gator alumni treat him like a douchebag. He's been seeing a therapist and part of his rehabiliation involves him constantly posting vitriolic comments on Gator blogs, whether here or on the Sun Sentinel. He hasn't gotten laid since Obama took office, but says he plans to real soon, when the Canes win the ACC this year. So... that's his story.

Wrong again, DOUCHYCO.

Like typical Gatr maggots, no clue. Just stick to meth and Gatr football. That's all Trailerville is good for.

and, uh, "Go Gatah."

Hey SUICYO, anyone who has visited this blog this year knows the pathetic Miami Moron you mention, he must also be unemployed since he has so much time to post and does so very often. I have found it best to ignore him and not to respond to his crap, you cannot argue with an obssessed idiot.
I blame Matt Watts for giving him free reign, after all he has nothing intelligent to contribute.
Either way, Go Gators!

nothing intelligent? or just real issues that Gatr maggots choose to ignore because it does not fit neatly with the delusional arrogance they enjoy?


Still wonder why your diploma is useless? Outside Florida it is a joke.

Didn't know Marcus Roberson got busted 4 under age drankin back in september :(

Gator watching sites? Zero. None. Try again Gomer.

This tool?? Was he talking about Manhattan Kansas?? LMAO.

I see a whole lot more Gators outside of Florida than canes.

Try and get a job in NY with that useless scrap. They will laugh you all the way back to your trailer.

Kind of like the way we're laughing you all the way back to your Mom's basement?!

Gee, Gomer, you don't say. You see more Gators than Canes? Wouldn't be because your institution is a public diploma mill with an undergrad population approaching 60 thousand, would it?

Man, you Gatr maggots are dumber than rocks.

And you still wonder why that diploma is useless?

LOL -- tell us more tales of your well traveled life -- those are a whole lot funnier than the pablum you're puking up here.

Duuuuhhhhhh, 48 out of 50 states in public education funding.

Dat ain't no story, Cooter. Dem dar is a sad fact. Life in the trailerpark ain't what it used to be.

Academic rankings? Sinking

Football rankings? Sinking

Meth use? Up

Teenage prostitution? Up

Building permits for churches? Up

What a great place to go to school.

And you still wonder why the diploma is useless?


Gator watching sites? Zero. None. Try again Gomer.

I'll give real UM grads the benefit of the doubt here. Obviously your Keiser College degree in 'researchin' helped you come up with that factoid!

Don't avoid the issue, maggot.

Useless diploma. Public diploma mill.

Hiding your head in the meth cake won't make it go away.

c'mon angry dude, the only mind that's a terrible waste is yours...don't drag UF grads or UM grads into your manic dystopia...

Do I need to post it? Should I? Ahhh, ok.

Another arrest? Again? Disgusting.

And this after Governor Scott calls out the quality of UTrailer degrees?

The UTrailer is a burning dumpster fire.

And you still wonder why your diploma is useless?




Unbelievable, UF player gets 50K from a convicted felon's ill-gotten gains. Oh, wait a minute, that was a UM player...

What difference does it make. UTrailer is basically Kaiser at this point.

What a Gatard dope. Or is that redundant?

Got felony arrests?

..just the difference between having a program in a year....and not having one..

Wish thinking, Gatard. Fits with your "church on ever corner" college town. You wish for the sky fairy too, 'neck?

Canes will be around. Your epic failure 5-7 team will too.

Those aren't sky fairies angry guy, they're airplanes...for people that leave Miami/Dade. Save your lawn mowing money and someday you'll be able to take one to all the Manhattans (Kansas AND N.Y). You can bring your favorite blanky and stuffed Ibis too...

Sure Gomer. Meanwhile, use your worthless diploma
to clean the grease out of your mobile home.





When is Furman?

The gator homers sure sound angry these days, I guess when you have (7) arrest under the "NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN" Muschump there is not much more to say but to display anger that your teams and university represent everything wrong with college football and academics.

'Angry' is not showing up on Saturday to support your team. Yep, stadium will be full the next go-round. How you doin' in that rental?

UM's gonna save alot money not having to shell out that rent on Satudays next year.....
