08:19 AM ET 09.09 | It's only Week 2, but Will Muschamp's temper is in midseason form. Upon hearing the news that DE Sharrif Floyd has to miss another game, in addition to the one Florida held him out of last week, [Muschamp] was irate. Typically, when a coach or administrator issues a written statement about any topic, it tends to be fairly bland and non-confrontational. Muschamp took a different approach. Here is what he said tonight about Floyd, who will not be eligible to return until Sept. 17 against Tennessee: "I'm angered, disgusted and extremely disappointed that Sharrif will have to miss two games. In my opinion Sharrif is getting lumped into what is bad about college athletics."

F the NCAA, Sharrif will have to miss one more game that the U suspended players.

I wish it was one more game so he would be out against Tenn. :-)

It might be. He has to pay $2700 (charity) before the UTk to get to play.

Floyd received more than $2,500 over several months from the Student Athlete Mentoring Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Delaware.

Floyd used the money for living expenses, transportation and other expenses. He also received impermissible benefits prior to enrollment, including transportation and lodging related to several unofficial visits. Florida was not one of the schools.

This is when it's nice to follow Tenn. None of our players are good enough to receive improper benefits. :-)

Floyd reported it to UF in Feb and UF self reported to the NCAA.

There also might be a Pell Grant violation. He sends his grandmother part of his Pell Grant so she can pay bills.

Bottom line is he broke the rules. He dang well knew it. What he gets is probably less than what he deserves. Fug all these gd prima donna aholes that think the rules don't apply to them. If it was up to me they would be out a year the first time and out for life the second. If you can't do the time don't do the crime.

I don't understand the anger. This is very similar to what Dareus and Green from UGA got.

September 9, 2011  09:16 AM ET

He gets to come back in a week so why continue to complain about it? The media w|-|ores will just keep milking and twisting the story and the team could lose focus. Just sayin ...

September 9, 2011  09:29 AM ET

What is bad about the NCAA? 1. The coaches, and 2. the college itself. Just look no further than O.St., USC, and Miami! NEXT!

QUOTE(#6):

I have said it, many others too, there is no balance in what the NCAA dishes out.

Its a good thing he wasn't a USC player-he might have gotten shot by the NCAA. Then again, if he was at tOSU he would be allowed to finish the season to have a unique "experience".

Aside from the actions of the NCAA in this case, it was really nice to hear Muschamp (and Foley) stand behind their player. I wouldn't expect anything else, but Muschamp used some pretty strong words. If he was an NFL coach, he'd be getting a call from the commissioner right about now.

I think it would be quite a stretch to call Sharrif Floyd a prima donna ****, but that's just me.
