This may have been discussed in other threads so I apologize in advance.
I was extremely embarrassed about the behavior of the players on the field Wed night. I have no idea why that is being tolerated. We were down three scores at one point and SOME of the players were celebrating tackles like they just won the lottery.
Has Muschamp addressed this at all publicly?
On a side note, do you think as he ages he'll calm it down a bit and get more poise? I hope so. I love him but he can lose his cool too much and I have to wonder if the players feed into that.
Nothing to address
Whatever he is doing or addressing, I hope he keeps doing it. He may calm down but thats who he is. I would much rather see Muschamp acting out the way I feel than to see Urban over there with crossed arms and a blank stare.
You are good with all the antics of some of the defensive players while getting their arses kicked the whole time? I'm not. I'd prefer they make the tackle and get back to the huddle and start kicking arse.
We all have different opinions I suppose.
As I said, I love Boom but I have to wonder if his emotions affect the team in a negative way sometimes.
I was amused to see that the players were celebrating tackles on 2nd down while we were getting our asses kicked consistently on third down.
Its the same mentality that leads to all the personal fouls and undisciplined penalties.
I watched Vandy. I watched Syracuse. Even Louisville. Well coached, well disciplined teams.
Less swagger. More focus. We outta try that sometime.
IMO Muschamp's fiery/passionate coaching style is much better than the coaching style of some other coaches who exhibit a lack of emotion (Jimbo Fisher). His competitive nature is expressed in a positive way. Rather than giving others blame (Jimbo Fisher) and ragging on his players (Jimbo Fisher) Muschamp takes responsibility and vows to change and move forward. The results should no longer be questioned. The dramatic turn around from last year is evidence that Muschamp's methods are successful. The team will respond to Muschamp and take on his personality which is a good thing. We will not lose many games in the future with WM as our head coach. Would you rather he burned with a desire to win or sat on the sidelines like he could care less what was going on in the game? I think his demeanor is a good thing and I do not think he has any reason to publicly address a perceived "behavior" of our players during the Sugar Bowl.
What is the point in making it public? Self soothing for fans? Will it make you feel better to hear the words yourself?
I assume words of displeasure were said in private. All I care about. IF said words comes out, sweet for us fans. If not, I don't assume it didn't happen or isn't getting addressed.
Laughed out loud seeing Muschamp run to the 10 to cuss that ref out. That's my coach.
Somehow, tBB has dubbed us the new Thug U. I really don't get it.
I see a team that still has some discipline issues, but I think people are making way too much out of that game.
I'm cool with the guys playing with some fire, but Juice throwing a punch and Bostic getting up in a ref's face is a little over the top.
Just the absolute best right there
I love coach
You see, I'd much rather see, collected leadership and two national championships.
I think champ will be okay, but the guy in charge has to be the calmest one there generally speaking, and I hope he can learn to keep his emotions in check more.
I'm cool with the fire as well. However, when you are getting your butt kicked up and down the field it seems extreme silly. Maybe I'm wrong.
I think I got my first down vote. Do I get a badge for that?
"Who was your source? Church mice in here....." - Coach Muschamp
Overall I like Muschamp's passion.
That said there were a few times in the UL game where he went overboard and lost his cool. A coach can't make good decisions when he lets his emotions get the better of him.
I agree with OP, behavior was embarrassing. I hate it when our guys are mouthing off about good hits after a 20/30 yard gains. Shut up and stop the offense before you open your mouth and strut like a dumb-ass.
Muschamp was much better this season, and he'll continue to grow. He's a fierce competitor with a stone cold killer's mentality. I didn't like watching easley pull the train horn for making a tackle, down by 20. Did Muschamp recruit him though, or Bostic, or CJ? The character kids that are coming in, seem to be light year's ahead of the one's Meyer brought, but with just as much talent. In 2 years, with a full Muschamp roster I think we will be much better in the discipline areas. I actually think it will change a lot this year, as Boom gets another class in and another set of Meyer's guys gone. I love the playmakers, but there were definitely still a few "me" guys left over. Muschamp is a hard hat guy, not an entitled douche. That was Urban.

The DV itself is an actual badge of honor. Go forth into the world, soldier, for now you have become a man.
