Will Muschamp spent his time on the stage deflecting any questions about hot seats and underperforming offenses by filibustering the press conference with a detailed reading of the Florida media guide. We are now all intensely aware of each player's height, weight, zodiac sign, favorite fast food chain, and preferred Game of Thrones house. Like any good salesman, he pushed specifications at the customer until they couldn't remember any of their concerns about the rusted body panels or unseasoned defense. All we could think about was that recently rebuilt V8 quarterback under the hood.
Those who lasted through his diversionary tactics were treated to a slightly more charming version of the usual non-committal coachspeak that we are clearly in for this week.
Coach Muschamp should be given credit for being probably the only coach to directly address the hot seat question, probably in the vain hope that it would prevent further questions.
There will be a lot of chatter about hot seat business. That's part of it. The way you combat that is having a winning football team and winning football games, which is what we're going to do.
At the end of the day, we're not playing for his job.
We don't talk about [winning for Coach Muschamp] in the locker room. We just talk about winning the game.
