Sharrif Floyd Suspended, Will Muschamp Blows Up On NCAA

The mystifying two-game suspension by the NCAA of Florida Gators defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd has drawn ire from University of Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley, with coach Will Muschamp adding his explosive thoughts Thursday night. Muschamp rarely minces words, so it's no surprise to see him "angered, disgusted and extremely disappointed," but this isn't the kind of thing coaches usually say about suspended players:

The toughest day that I have had as a head football coach at Florida was the day that I had to tell Sharrif that he could not play in our game vs. FAU last week. I took away part of his family.

He had tears in his eyes and said "What have I done wrong?" I told him he did nothing wrong. It wasn't any easier to tell him today that he would be missing Saturday's game.

I have two sons at home. If they end up like Sharrif I will consider myself a successful father.

Alligator Army loves the fiery defense of a player who likely didn't do anything wrong wrong, pointing out how great this looks to other Florida players and potential future Florida players. Muschamp is defending his player, but he's also defining the way players are treated in his program.
