VIDEO: Florida's Will Muschamp uses woodpeckers to explain the human body

All the secrets of football are contained within the humble woodpecker.

After being asked to compare Florida defensive end Ronald Powell's battle to return from an ACL injury to the path paved by Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, Gators head coach Will Muschamp delivered, in part, the following:

Every situation when you're dealing with the human body's different. Every person is different.

Yesterday, we had Mickey Collins in, who's a concussion expert, was talking to us about when you deal with concussions and when you come back from concussions. And he talked about a coach he once deal with that made the comment that, this player, you could take a shovel and hit him in the back of the head and nothing ever would happen, and this player could bump into a wall, and he's gonna have a concussion. And Mickey simply said, 'that's right.'

Everyone is different. And everyone handles it different.

A woodpecker's never gonna have a concussion. I bet you didn't know that. That's a true story. Isn't it? He said it. They got an extra bone in their neck. They have an extra bone in their neck, and they never can have a concussion. You learn something new every day, and you just learned something new.

So, my point being, everyone's different. I know one thing: he's really excited to practice.

Later, he was asked again about the bird part. "I have not researched it, so it could be wrong," he granted, before demonstrating with his hands how brains and skulls are like eggs and yolks. (Note: he is not wrong.)

Concussions aren't one bit funny. Will Muschamp, junior year Biology teacher, is.
