    It's part of Will's learning curve on being the head man/face of the program not part of the support cast that is the coordinator role and can be more fiery and jacked.

    I've never had a problem with his emotions and wouldn't even come close to considering it a "anger management" problem. He gets just as crazy when he's happy, he's just a animated guy.

    I like passion and a good a$$ chewing is necessary from time-to-time, but

    1) I'm concerned with the extent to which his emotion/passion distracts him and his players from the game.

    2) Yelling does not equal discipline as we have seen on the field

    3) There are times when he looks like a bewildered or pouting or tantrum throwing 11-year old

    4) I'd like to play poker with him.

    Maybe your son could play tennis? Champ is passionate. I doubt many parents would turn down UF because of something like that.

    I'd like a little more coaching and getting into it with his players and a little less screaming at the officials.

    When players fail to execute, I expect hugs.

    If we were winning, it's doubtful that he engages a fan in the stands at the Cocktail Party. He might not bloody his knuckles on a white board either, but who knows? I hardly think that after this season, one can claim Gator fans to be "fickle." If ever there was a time . . .

    Nice list and good points, but this one left me perplexed. :eek:

    If he got dealt a poor hand he probably would draw even worse cards and blame the dealer.

    i don't have a problem with it. i thought he seemed to get less emotional as the year went on, and the nicer he began to act to the players the worse they performed. you can't change who you are, he needs to be him throughout the whole process. if you're gona be a firey guy it needs to remain constant. i think at his end of the year press conference he addressed that as a criticism of himself.

    My first memory of Muschamp is the 2007 Auburn game. I turned to my brother and said "look at that jerk on the sidelines".

    I like that he has passion, and he has toned it down but there are some videos of his antics that are a bit embarrassing.

    Just get him a visor...

    I remember the whiners complaining about Meyer's cussing too and how Tebow's father was supposedly very upset about it. Spurrier was also extremely hard on his qbs....his cutting jokes aren't just limited to opponents. Saban and his anger are also well documented. But that's the price athletes and parents , who have kids athletic enough to attend a major FBS program, are willing to pay. The others, stay out of the kitchen.

    I don't really care about Muschamp's emotions but I would love to see him pull this stuff with grown men in the NFL. It's funny how except for Pete Carroll there has been a moratorium put on hiring college guys as head coaches. I also wanted to see Bobby Knight grab Charkes Oakley or Barkley. Now that would have been hilarious. Guys now seem to understand where they belong and there is a big difference between motivating rich men and exercising control over people under the age of 21. Guys, stay in college.

    What's the point?

    In the first place your facts are wrong. Harbaugh? Kelly?

    Secondly, Knight was a college coach, and coaching college kids. I believe that HOF coach had a pretty good handle on what it took to coach at the college level; and is known for the loyalty of his former players.. He also coached some post college stars, even if no experienced pros, on the 1984 Olympic team.

    Then of course Muschamp is dealing with college kids, as well. I suspect that he has learned what it takes to get their attention over the course of his 25 year coaching career. On the other hand he has coached in the NFL, and probably adjusted his demeanor according to the situation..

    If my dad had told me to not play for a coach bc they yelled, I'd have started calling him 'mom #2'.

    and if he's consistently like that, it can't be healthy..possibly a poster boy for high blood pressure meds.
