John, since you state the officials muffed the call (your opinion) you would be more accurate in reporting that Steve Shaw, head of SEC officiating, responded to this specific play and said the correct call was made. I'm sure this is more noteworthy and accurate from a journalistic standpoint.
So that’s why they call him Coach Boom. He drops F-bombs that explode on national television.
Florida’s Will Muschamp — known for his intensity — did more than stare when SEC officials royally botched a call in Saturday’s game between the Gators and Auburn. He let loose with a long barrage of screams and expletives for the ESPN cameras to capture.
(NSFW. While this is a tape of a tape — and will likely stay available longer — the audio isn’t great. But beware to all lip-readers, too.)
As you can see from the tape, the refs should’ve flagged Auburn for interfering with a fair catch. Instead, they ruled the play a fumble and gave Auburn the ball at the Gators’ 32. Three plays later the Tigers had a touchdown in their 17-6 win.
Following the game, Muschamp said, “I can’t comment on that,” when asked about the play/tirade.
While UF fans will likely back their coach — especially since he was correct in his assessment of the call — it’s doubtful that Florida president Bernie Machen wants his coach to get a reputation for being the Old Man Parker of the SEC.
