    In a slightly related note, I'm impressed by how fast he drew those circles on the white board.

    Very true. I'm also okay with him doing this out of frustration if that was the case

    It happened at halftime. He said it was "dumb" and that he was trying to prove a point about finishing the game.

    It probably looked something like this...

    who really cares, this is ridiculous that people care that much that he punched a chalk board. the guy puts his heart and soul into this, even if he isn't doing it that well by UF standards, he is doing his best. if he punches a chalk board i really could care less. this is just people who will find any more reason to hate the guy more than they already do.

    That's not it at all.

    As a retired military officer, I know that troops follow the example of their leader. I'm used to seeing (and expecting) that leaders of men put their heart and soul into their profession AND act professionally while doing it. Always. Because if they don't, their troops won't. And that results in losses.

    IMO he gets too out of control, too often, too easily. I think there is no way that the positive motivation he MIGHT generate with the players outweighs the negatives image he presents to the public, the potential bad-will he creates with referees, and the indisciplined example he sets for the team.

    Thanks for posting this. Very telling to me. It's exactly how I feel about WM coaching our team as a DC.

    One of my biggest issues with him is his inability to get the team to play to its potential week in and week out. I don't know why that is, but maybe its all the yelling and screaming. Maybe they tune him out sometimes.

    Its not surprising to me that when we play poorly, a lot of times its due to poor blocking and tackling - i.e. the most physical parts of the game. As a player who is really laying your body out on the line I think you really need to believe in your leadership and your game plan to be willing to go out and do that each and every play.

    Its no wonder that the one position to take the most beating, the OL, is also the most inconsistent. How can they be so much better at times then other times look completely lost? I mean, how many times have we seen those bad replays where a O lineman looked like he didnt want any part of blocking his man? Or those replays where a tackler did not make much of an effort to stop a RB at the point of contact?

    It also explains where that "woe is me" attitude is coming from.

    South Carolina reported no damage. On the other hand, Ohio State damaged illinois's locker room. FWIW.

    Let's be real here, sall we? The difference between SOS spiking his visor, and Champ going ape sh$t at the ref's, isn't about what they did, or what emotion triggered it.

    It's a simple matter of cred.

    Spurrier could go apesh$t at the ref's, and he'd get a pass.

    Why?

    SOS was UF's favorite son; a Gator alum; won H-man; a proven winner at Duke, Tampa Bay Bandits, and wasted no time bringing UF to unbeleivalbe heights...

    ...meanwhile, Champ is a UGA alum; and a coordiantor who has experienced some noteworthy success--but nothing like Spurrier's.

    That's the difference; it's a matter of cred.

    Spurrier was drawing against 'secured credit' with a AAA credit rating; Champ is drawing on unsecured credit, with a few dings on his credit report.

    (and yeah, I know I'm confusing analolgy points--i.e.--street cred vs. creit rating--but it works...).

    makes sense, i see where you are coming from. however i don't think you're view on it is very similar to the majority of the people who simply come on here to bash muschamp. can't argue with what you're saying at all but the post was more towards the people who don't think with the same logic as you(sadly most don't). ps, as always thanks for your service, loads of respect to all that served.

    Exactly. Why is it funny when Spurrier cracks on an SEC foe but lame when Kiffin did the same thing? Cred. You have to have substance or else the "flare" rings hollow.

    doesn't change the fact that he's hardly the one to tell anyone to 'get a grip'.

    Lead by example, then call for those to follow you--don't treat your self to a low/easy standard, and ask THE FANS--to observe a higher standard taht YOU--when you are Head Foootball Coach at the University of Florida.

    He needs to show some damn respect--especially if he's asking for it--be it for himself, or his players.

    That's pretty elementary.

    i have said this on another topic, but i will say it again... the only fans still saucy about muschamp saying to get a grip are probably the ones that need to get a grip. im not a muschamp fan but im not going to condemn him for saying something that is actually very true.
