Earlier this week, Will Muschamp announced that his three suspended players — wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and defensive tackles Jay-nard Bostwick and Darious Cummings — had been reinstated. While that would normally be no cause for controversy, the fact that the game for which they were suspended wasn’t played due to weather made the punitive measure essentially a non-suspension suspension as none of the trio will miss any playing time.
That, of course, caused deafening criticism to rain down on Muschamp and his football program, with critics taking shots at the coach’s discipline — or lack thereof.
Wednesday was the first chance for Muschamp to be asked about the criticism. He was, during the SEC’s weekly coach’s teleconference — and he was not very pleased with those who had the audacity to question his penal methods.
While Muschamp criticized his critics for failing to have all of the information, he decided against adding any details that could perhaps cast his reinstatement in a different light. That, of course, is Muschamp’s right; it’s also proper for people on the outside to scratch their heads and raise their eyebrows at his methods.
