SEC Media Days are often a total circus compared to comparable events, thanks in part by some of the delicious trolling efforts by various coaches. Typically, these are aimed at other SEC programs, but you probably heard of some remarks by Florida headman Will Muschamp that were not-so-subtly directed towards Columbus.
The first remark some saw as a trolling answer came from the following question:
Q. How much is a head coach responsible for the off‑the‑field behavior of its players? Can a head coach know everything that’s going on, and control that?
A: Well, you’re 100% responsible. When you sign a student‑athlete to come to the University of Florida, I look at his parents, guardians, whoever is important to him in his life, tell them it’s my job to be an extension of what’s already happened at home. But you’re a hundred percent responsible for the young man. Everything that happens.
I can’t possibly know everything that happens every single night with our football team. You also can’t stick your head in the sand and pretend everything is okay either.
