Semi-OT: Muschamp refers to "Ohio" in discussing reported violations

Submitted by iawolve on July 16th, 2013 at 6:15 PM

I have read that our staff is still friendly with Florida's staff, I don't know the actual connections or what is really there. I assume any contact comes as a result of Mattison's tenure. However, it seemed odd that Muschamp referred to "Ohio" at SEC media days when asked about being reported by Ohio to the NCAA. In fact he used the term twice in a statement. I imagine is it a way for him to dig in harder with his jab or he has become a Hoke-a-maniac, not sure. 

 

"In both situations, we were turned in by Ohio. We didn't do anything wrong. The University of Florida didn't do anything wrong. And so we appreciated our friends from Ohio making sure we're compliant with NCAA rules. They certainly know a little bit about that subject."

"Lebriarj:"  I can tell from your point total that you haven't posted much here.  I would strongly advise that you pay attention to the things people do and don't do here.  

Some general observations from someone who is coming up on the aforementioned 5-year mark:

Any post that looks like it was written on RCMB will be trashed.  Posts with "cute nicknames" that aren't close to being cute will definitely get trashed.  Use of gratuitous obscenities will be trashed.  Posts that look like the poster was trashed when he wrote them will be trashed.  

I'm sure you mean well, but it doesn't look like you got off to a very good start.  You might want to simply observe for a couple of weeks, hope everyone has forgotten who you are, and come in with more appropriate comments.  

I would imagine that you will have a lot more fun that way.

Meyer besides the current teams fans.  Nobody but UF liked him while he was there, no one really likes him now except Ohioans.  Guess that could be said for almost all coaches who leave one big time gig for another though

Agreed. We need to get back to football and let everything go by the wayside except what happens on the field. But such is the offseason, especially in the summer.

Football is so close to being back that we can almost taste it, and when meh stuff like this comes out, it only heightens our annoyance towards it. We don't want to hear anymore bland coachspeak; we don't want to hear more about OSU being prematurely crowned as 2014 BCS Champions, nor anything else about Johnny Football's latest twitter blunder. Just get the boys together and get them back on the field.

The Gainesville Sun had a decent writeup as well, and there is also a portion of the article where apparently, right after the jab at Meyer, someone asked Muschamp how responsible coaches were for off-the-field behavior, so the subtle digs continued, it seemed. 

There was also this:

"Asked if it was strange that Meyer used to coach at Florida and then turned in the Gators, Muschamp replied: "Big Ten Media Days are next week. Ask him.""

I sincerely hope someone does. This could be fun.

I've always quietly rooted for UF since Urban left.  Muschamp always seemed like a good dude (I seem to recall he's a pretty big opponent of oversigning), and Gainesville is awesome.  This gives me cause to root a little bit louder on Saturdays...

Oh, and BEAT OHIO

I just have to chuckle at how Coach Hoke's "ohio" (I refuse to capitalize it) has legs. It pleases me more that Muschamp referred to them as ohio than the fact that Meyer is a turncoat.
