Muschamp denies allegation of paying player while at Auburn

Accused of paying a player under the table while working as defensive coordinator at Auburn in 2007, Florida coach Will Muschamp today denied any wrongdoing.

"Totally deny it," Muschamp told Robbie Andreu of the Gainesville Sun. "I don’t know where this is coming from."

The allegations surfaced Wednesday on Roopstigo.com in a story by former New York Times and Sports Illustrated writer Selena Roberts. The story is centered on former Auburn player Mike McNeil, who is facing charges of armed robbery. McNeil alleges that Muschamp called the player into his office following a practice and paid McNeil nearly $400 for reasons unknown.

According to Roberts' story, here is McNeil's account of the incident: 

"I had no clue what it was about because I’d never directly asked him for anything. He slid about $400 over to me. He went into a drawer and gave me money and said, 'Is this enough? Is this good?' And I said, 'Yeah, I’m good.'"

The story also alleges other serious NCAA violations, including academic fraud, impermissible recruiting benefits as well as local police corruption. Several other players quoted in the story have since backed off their statements, saying they were misquoted or denying certain facts. Roberts, in an interview with Al.com writer Brandon Marcello, defended the story.

Muschamp denied the allegations Wednesday through a spokesman and Thursday through the Sun. His next scheduled media availability is following Saturday's spring game.

Let's see if the Gatr trash will be consistent. Are you going to call for the Auburn death penalty as you did with Miami?

Should everyone be punished severely, including Muscrap, as you said should be done with Miami?

Does a Gatr maggot know what consistency is? This is worse than what happened at Miami. This is coaches altering grades and giving payoffs not some rogue booster.

Where is metaphor boy?

Urban Liar: "I am not going anywhere."

Urban Liar: "I am retiring to spend more time with my (ESPN) family."

Muscrap: "I deny I gave any money to any athlete."

Bubba: "I did not have sex with that woman.....Ms. Lewinsky."

Hey InsaneCane, I didn't think access to a computer was allowed in an insane asylum? What do mental patients like you have to do in order to gain access to a computer?? Let me guess, you have to go a week without talking about the Gators in your group therapy sessions? That's why your obsessions get spewed out all over Gator clause, because they're so pent up for a week, you have to release them once you get your computer privileges?

What do mental patients have to do to gain access to a computer?

Why, silly Gatr maggot, that is simple. You just have to be admitted to the UFailure. And that is easy to do. Getting in there is less difficult than getting into a county fair.

Althoug, come to think of it, that sterling UFailue academic curriculum canceled its computer science dept. so not sure now.

Starcraft, anyone?

Wow, that's all you could come up with?? Pretty sad! Typical same ole same ole out of you. I guess that MDCC education of yours doesn't allow for the ability to be more creative.

GatorAlum Calm down boy! We have medications for your delusions and for being out of touch with reality, so calm down and let the Alachua County Detention Center Medical staff help you.

I here your meds cost about $400.00 total, my guess is that Slick Wille Muschamps has it in his desk just waiting to give it to you, so hurry and finish your sentence and do the time and he will hook you up!

ROFLMAO my new favorite number,lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not very imaginative or original there InsaneCane. Nice try though!

Of course he denies paying players.....its the sec.....deny,deny,deny.....if he was paying there he is paying here....good thing they have huntley on the payroll for all those disgruntled ex felons....maybe thats why they wont(cant) dismiss players that get into trouble? Hurry up j and get your douche comments in. Tell me how delusional I am canetrash....i mean j. NCAA is coming....

Pot meet kettle! We told you the NCAA was coming to get UF**kups and now they are knocking at the door, go ahead an answer it! The whole sec will be torn down over this scandle, the pay for play days are coming to the end. gators song " GOOOOO Fakers"

Isn't this the chick that broke the Duke LaX scandal?

you cane fans are hilarious!

GatorAlum.....tick tock tick tock soon new revelations during Muschamps tenure at Auburn to be released, tick tock tick tock LMAO

Get your kicks in now Miami Morons pretty soon this will all go away. This is a potential problem for Auburn not us. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by Mus.
Compare and contrast that with your situation where there is tons of evidence, there are tons of incriminating pictures and there are years of wrongdoing. The fact all you Morons are so giddy about this non story is comical.
Sid you are delusional, a delusional Moron. Muschamp has gotten rid of several good very players over the past 2 years so you don't have a clue. Anonymous Moron is just clueless and going off like a psycho.
Enjoy now, we will get the last laugh. First on Sept 7th when we will run all over you and then in June when the NCAA hits you hard.

jls, it's quite comical isn't it? On one side, you've got a billion dollar ponzi schemer running rampant throughout the program taking pictures and leaving a paper trail a mile long. On the other side you have a guy, who's on trial for armed robbery, making a statement about something that supposedly happened, at a school other than UF I might add, behind closed doors where no one has any evidence of anything like that happening. Now you've got all these cane fans doing backflips, acting like we're in the same boat as them. Hilarious!!! Wait, who am I kidding, I shouldn't say all these cane fans, it's actually just InsaneCane, using multiple names. I mean hey, at least they have something to get excited about, even if it's hopeless dreams. Everyone knows they've got nothing else to get excited about.

"you've got a billion dollar ponzi schemer running rampant throughout the program taking pictures and leaving a paper trail a mile long. On the other side you have a guy, who's on trial for armed robbery, making a statement about something that supposedly happened"

Funny, isn't it, how Gatr maggots whitewash everything. "Taking pictures?" OOooooh, you don't say. The humanity. "Paper trail a mile long?" Ummm,for all the paper, the NCAA could only document $170K not the millions alleged.

"On the other hand, a guy making a statement." Well, Gomer, it was several guys, and what does his trial have to do with the admission? Answer, nothing.

Just be consistent, maggot. When the Shapiro stuff hit, no doubt you were jumping up and down on your double-wide calling for the death penalty.

No worry. 48 felony arrests and the pounding the Gatr Trash will take Sep. 7 more than makes up for it.

I will bet Huntley already got to all the players in jail and put money into their canteens to keep them quit....Starp down those trailers...U will be looking for a new coach...

InsaneCane, where are these several guys that have said muschamp handed them money, because lets be honest here, this is what all you losers are getting a hard on over, because clearly nothing else that happened at AUBURN pertains to UF? Must be those voices putting crazy things in your head again. What does him being on trial have to do with anything??? Now that really shows that MDCC education of yours! It says A LOT about his credibility retard. Man, I'd hate having a bunch of community college reject hurricane fans on my jury, if I was ever on trial for anything! Just be consistent?? That's hilarious coming from an insane multiple personality loser like you! There's nothing funnier or more pathetic than a cane fan talking trash, or making an attempt but failing miserably at talking trash. Oh, you have a lot of arrests, Huntley's rounding them up, oh the death penalty etc etc. And the greatest one of them all, the trash talk about Sept 7th. Yeah, we're really scared of a 7 win team, who quite frankly actually weakens our schedule. HILARIOUS!!!!! Keep them coming cane fans, your delusions make for great comedy!

Moron Sid, there are no players in jail, unless it's Thomas Finnie. I think you tried to say "quiet" and "strap", then again maybe not, can't pass that GED exam yet?
Funny how there is a story about UM trying to suppress testimony from Kyle Wright. You cheaters are so desperate that you are past denying your wrongdoings and now you are trying to suppress the truth by saying it was obtained "improperly".
48 known players involved, over a period of ten years, the two sports of note involved, multiple coaches, and yes InsaneCane lots of PICTURES. My favorite one is Shalala looking stupid while holding the big check at the bowling alley. And the one of Mr Cane Shapiro by the tunnel at the OB waitinf for the players to come out.
Sept 7th you will get your first beat down of the season.
Then in June the NCAA will slam you as you well deserve.

Driscoll will have his arse handed to him....

muschamp linked improper exchanges of money with players as testified in the article by former Auburn players (plural). If he did it there, you know he did it at UF**kup. Miami will escape the ax due to the NCAA many blunders however they will be looking to set an example of Auburn and anyone associated with the scandel(muschamp anyone). This is about to get real good. GOOOO Fakers!

gators meet the NCAA, NCAA meet the head coach of UFelony who paid players directly and have direct testimony from former players. NCAA review the 27 arrest since the "New Sheriff" muchamp came to town and how many greenbacks have changed hands since he came to UFelony! This is going to get real gooood.

". What does him being on trial have to do with anything??? Now that really shows that MDCC education of yours! It says A LOT about his credibility retard."

Is that taught at the UFailure law school? Because being accused of a crime does not go to one's credibility. Because if that were the case, then Muscrap's credibility is at issue also, right? He is being accused.

And let's not get started on the 48 felony arrests by the Gatr Trash players.

Face it. You are the product of a poor academic skewwl and your diploma is worthless. All you have is your 7 years of undergrad and stories about the swamp.

All the good that will do you in life, trailer donkey.

Man InsaneCane, you are a great fabricator of stories, aren't you?? Did you read the article, or are you just listening to the voices in your head again??
"The story is centered on former Auburn player Mike McNeil, who is facing charges of armed robbery. McNeil alleges that Muschamp called the player into his office following a practice and paid McNeil nearly $400 for reasons unknown." Not sure where the plural part comes in, but that's ok, I'm sure those voices are pretty loud in your head. By the way, 48 "felony" arrests, again another fabrication. 90% of the arrests were misdemeanors, but don't let the facts get in the way. And yes, I'm sure it is taught at Levin college of law as well as every other law school in the world. It's actually common sense that a criminal's credibility is tarnished. I hate to break it to you, but honest stand up people don't get charged with armed robbery, but I wouldn't expect a mental patient like you to understand that.

Canetrash(jls)....if your boss gave u a bonus, assuming u have a job, and there was a picture of it and he later turned out to be crooked, does that make u guilty? Just run with the u having a job theory...and dont pick on my mistyping when u cant spell loser....unless all this time u have been refering to a knot being LOOSER?....as someone said before....gator donkey....hahaha...i like that one. Hurry with a response,the library is closing.

GatorAlum thanks for making Miami's argument for them about the credibility of a criminal being tarnished especially one who lied so well that he stole 930 million dollars from investors.

I hate to break it to the folks but honest people don't get charged with stealing 930 million dollars.

So I see that other don't like it when a criminal makes accusations! Pretty frustrating isn't it!

Appreciate it, thanks again!

I do wonder one thing though,.... I wonder if when Muschamps denied any wrong doing if he had those veins popping out of his neck, a face so red he is about to have an stroke and getting so angry he was about to pop the pimple on his nose? Just wondering!

InsaneCane, I'd agree with your theory, if there weren't a million pictures of that scumbag backing up everything he said. If all there was was his word against the schools with no physical evidence to back it up, then yes, you'd have to question the validity of it, but unfortunately for you guys, that's not the case. So, I'm not quite sure what point you are trying to make. It's just like every other case in the court system, there is no case without evidence. By the way, who said Shapiro was honest??? Was that the voices in your head again?? No one is frustrated here, I think you're the only one frustrated, because your fantasies have no merit. As much as you're hoping for us to be in the same boat you are, it's not going to happen. So keep fantasizing!

gatoralum, jism1 whatever personality your in today,I can recall several post stating that the ponzie scumbag accusations must be right because he stated he had evidence when in 90% of the accusations, he did not have anything but credit card receipts, last I looked the CC receipt does not have pictures on them. But dont let facts get in the way. The good thing is since the NCAA screwed up so bad they know that they wont be able to sanction any further punishment than the self imposed sanctions we already did for 2 years so now they are looking to sharpen the ax to show they have legit processes and powern and therefore Auburn, floriduh and the entire SEC is on the clock.

Keep dreaming InsaneCane, Sid the Moron, Canes Anonymous and your other multiple personalities.
There is evidence, there are witnesses, pictures and testimony of years of cheating, 48 known players involved and multiple coaches.
Your only chance is to try suppress the truth by saying it was obtained "improperly".
There is nothing that comes close to that in the Auburn case.
In June your punishment will be handed down as you well deserve.
Then on Sept 7th your first beat down of the season will be deliverd.
Mark those 2 dates down you serial cheaters and losers.

jls, the guy is clearly off his rocker, and so clueless about everything that's going on around him, which is to be expected when you're locked in a 6x6 padded room with no windows. Until the voices stop putting delusional theories in his head, he'll never see the clear picture about what's really going on. I mean seriously, anyone who thinks the ncaa is just going to walk away with their tails between their legs, is clearly missing a few marbles!

"There is evidence, there are witnesses, pictures and testimony of years of cheating, 48 known players involved and multiple coaches..."

and with all that they could only document $170K. So for all the jumping on the roof of your double-wide, when the smell of ammonia and rodent manure clears from your home, there is not much else for your to cheer about.

Coach Muscrap? He will be gone. Gatr Trash football? BSWAAHAAHAHAHAA. Nice QB. Nice WRs.

The O-line? A sieve.

RBs? Who?

But you'll compete for the SEC title, right maggots? Rieeeeeeeeeght. Just try to get LaMO off the schedule.

InsaneCane, you sit there and act like $170,000 is nothing, like it's $5 or something. I'm not exactly sure where you came up with this number, although I'm sure it's those voices again, but okay since you say that's what it is and not $2 million which everyone else says it is, then you must be right. lol! The funniest thing about everything that spews out of your mouth about our team is, the Gators are still 10 times the team the canes are. A consistent 7 win team, now that's something to be proud of! 7 wins are definitely worthy of spewing out trash talk as if you've won 10 straight national titles. HILARIOUS!! InsaneCane, the king of delusions!

Go back and read the findings, Gomer. That is all I can say. Go back and rea....ok, with that awful education that is difficult so go have someone read to you the notice of allegations in the report.

That is my source. What is yours? Mark May?

Typical under-educated maggot from a state that ranks 48 out of 50 in public education funding.

I think you should post it a few more times InsaneCane. What's that once for every voice in your head? No matter what the amount of money was, it's still against NCAA rules, so it doesn't really make a difference how much it was idiot. It's so funny how riled up you get over the stupidest things. Oh, your state ranks 48 out of 50 in public funding. Who cares??!! This is a Gator blog about sports, you want to rant about public funding and stupid political stuff, go over to cnn or something loser! Maybe you should start focusing all that pent up aggression on becoming sane, because that's a little more important than the Gators. You are obsessed! Seriously, do you think about anything other than the Gators?? Go ahead now and say something stupid that you've already said a million times before, because that pea brain of yours can't come up with anything new. 7 wins, something to be proud of!!

"No matter what the amount of money was, it's still against NCAA rules."

Backpedal, backpedal, backpedal. So now it is not millions? Not as juicy as you had hoped. And by the way, NCAA rules probably prohibit all the felonious and misdemeanors your Gatr trash players commit/

"Oh, your state ranks 48 out of 50 in public funding. Who cares??!!"

Hey, maggot, i don't care that your diploma is worthless if you don't. Again, your bloated skeewwwl with 60K undergrads who are unprepred for any serious occupations fill that crappy stadium. Kudos. It is what a bloated state school is supposed to do. A small private school with 11 K undergrads is not supposed to fill a 70K seat stadium. Yet you maggots find that amusing.

Of course, the quality of your education is miserable so that explains it.

Gooooooo Gatah. Love Corinne Brown.

Not backpedaling at at all InsaneCane. If you could comprehend what I said in my first comment, it was that you act like $170,000 is nothing. I don't obsess over the Canes like you do the Gators, and know all the details about your corrupt program. I simply go by what I see in the headlines. I could actually give 2 sh**s about the canes. You'll never see me commenting on cane articles. I only criticize the canes when ignorant losers like you obsess over the Gators. It may be a small private school, but that doesn't factor in the 100,000+ community college reject cane fans like you that never stepped foot on the UM campus. What's really amusing is the fact that you couldn't fill a 10k seat stadium!

Hey, maggot, i don't care that my diploma is worthless if you don't. Heck i don't even have one. Again, my wannabe elite skeewwwl with 10K undergrads who are unprepred for any serious occupations will never fill any ole crappy stadium. Kudos. It is what a bloated community college is supposed to do. Yet you maggots find that amusing. Not everyone can get into UF, it is very difficult, truly elite, the best skeewwl in Florida. If im an MCDD dropout going for the GED for the 3rd time now what can i do but come here and vent.
Of course, the quality of my education is miserable so that explains it, you know a high skeewwl diploma can only take me so far.
So what if im bitter and jealous of all things gator, this is my therapy to project all my shortcomings onto what i really wish i could be.

Talk about filling up stadiums, the canes held a practice in Naples last weekend. In a 4k high school stadium. Officials were so excited they brought in extra bleachers to fit another 1k. They bused kids in form neighboring high schools, expected "standing room only" atmosphere.
Only 3k idiots showed up, half were other high school kids and families bused in.
Funny thing, after the practice several of the players commemted on how it felt like a real game at Sun Life in terms of the crowd. 3k. Youe typical Saturday afternoon crowd at SunLife. Unless FSU or UF come to town. Why could that be?

Dunno, maggot. Because the U is 1/4 the size of the public diploma mill? You make it seem like it is an accomplishment that the UFailure fills a 90K seat stadium. Well, that is what bloated public universities in the south with 60K undergrads and limited options do.

So, quit patting yourself on the back. YOu are supposed to fill that stadium. Congrats. Now, with all those fans, you still lose. The mighty Canes have more titles and a prouder history. You are left with the sound of the propane motor running in your home.

BWWAAHAAHAHA,

POI - UF students only get 22K tickets.

And the 18K grads pumped out every year gobble up the rest. There are nearly a three hundred thousand Gatr grads within a 1 hour drive of the campus.

My point stands. It is no badge of honor to sell out a 90K seat stadium when you have that many fans locate so close to campus. And with limited options.

Or did you not see when Missy St. beat down the gatr trash two years ago and the seats were empty mid-way through the third Q.

So much for Gatr Nation.

InsaneCane, you never stepped foot on the UM campus, as well as about 85% of the fan base. So you continuing to say a tiny private school can't fill an 80,000 seat stadium, has no merit. There's about 200,000+ reject cane fans within walking distance of the stadium who have diareah of the mouth like you do and talk trash as if the canes have won the last 10 titles, yet they can't buy tickets to a game and go out and support their team. The only people who actually go to a game are alumni and students. The real fans who actually have some sort of affiliation with the school, who are respectable and don't run their mouths non-stop like idiots like you.

Well said GatorAlum, there are thousands of derelics like him in Miami who could go to at least one game but they don't. They don't because they are just bandwagon Morons with no real affiliation to that school.
Hey InsaneMoronCane do you work at the Publix deli?
Never mind you probably don't work at all.
My deli guy is a big time cane fan, he is more educated than you.
Will the Moron disappear after the Sept 7th beat down?

I do work at the Publix deli. As a manager. I have 12 Gatr trash maggot employees under me. Better not make me angry or I will fire one of them and add to the legions of unemployed Gatr trash worthless diploma holders.

Course, if a person does not go to games or support the team, how can they be considered fans? Trailer logic. It never gets old.

Last gatr tash title was 7 years ago. You talk trash like you have won recently. Which you haven't. Ask Louisville. Some lowly Big East team pounded an SEC LEast team.

Typical.

No InsaneCane, I guess going on Gator blogs and talking trash like a delusional fool makes you a fan. Forget about supporting your team, I mean who does that sort of ridiculous thing?? Who needs the support of the 12th man when you're winning 7 games a year?? I hate to break it to you, but no one on here is claiming anything other than we like our team coming off an 11 win season with a first time starting QB. We also know we're going to destroy you losers, who can't win more than 7 games. You're the one talking more trash than anyone on a GATOR blog.

38-17.....U lose...

Worthless. Diploma. Holder.

Public. Diploma. Mill.

It is your reality. Timmy Teblow is gone. YOu have won nothing in 7 years. Deal with it, maggots.

Oh public diploma mill, you're really hurting my feelings with that one over and over and over and over and over..............again. I know, it's hard for that pea brain of yours to come up with anything new. By the way, what have the canes done in the last 10 years?? Hilarious how all you can do is criticize my diploma and talk about public funding and the Louisville game. Yeah, we're really ashamed of losing our 2nd game of the season in a BCS bowl. What bowl game did the canes play in? Oh that's right, I forgot another thing to be proud of other than a 7 win season. Definitely something worthy of trash talk. Keep running your mouth though, what else do you have to get excited about?

Public diploma mill and worthless diploma holder. This theme keeps coming up with the Miami Moron.
First, if you repeat a lie enough times you may come to believe it. Another one of your delusions.
Secondly, if that keeps coming out of your mouth, that is your reality, that is your history, that is your life. It is who you are that you are trying to project onto us. Another one of your mental disorders.
What a sad way to go through life.

I do work at the Publix deli. As a manager. That means I get low pay, have to stay late, set up the schedules, and make sure everything is ready for the real workers. I have 12 MDCC trash maggot employees under me, who make more that I do and work less, but I get a title of manager. We are all big time cane fans, some of us went to MDCC, others dropped out of high school. Better not make me angry or I will spit on your order of Boars Head turkey that could lead to my firing and add to the legions of unemployed Cane trash worthless diploma holders and bandwagon fans. Course, if a person does not go to games or support the team, they are considered typical cane fans. It never gets old.

Last Cane tash title was more than 12 years ago. We talk trash like we have won recently. Which we haven't. Ask UVA. Or FSU. Or UNC. Many lowly ACC teams have pounded our canes team. So have every single good team we have played. Don't get me started on bowl games.
Typical.

BWWAHAHAAA ... That's so cute, you make funny names out of the Adult's real names ... just like my 6 year old. One day, if you're lucky, you will be an adult and see the humor in immature children calling names.
