Will Muschamp angered by inaccurate reports on suspensions



Florida was without five players in Saturday's game against Toledo due to suspensions for violation of team rules. The reporting of those suspensions, and a subsequent erroneous report, sent Gators coach Will Muschap into an angry tirade in the postgame interview.

Junior LB Louchiez Purifoy, LB Antonio Morrison, DL Darious Cummings,OL Quinteze Williams and WR Latroy Pittman were all suspended. All will return next week except Pittman who is suspended for two more games.

On Friday, several media outlets reported that freshman Jay-nard  Bostic was also among the suspended. He was not.

Muschamp lashed out saying he had to console Bostwick’s emotional mother, and calling it “shoddy and irresponsible” journalism. When asked why he didn’t announce the suspensions once news starting leaking, Muschamp said he planned to make the announcement prior to Saturday’s game, which is his prerogative.

Here is video of Muschamp's angry confrontation with some reporters from the Orlando Sentinel.
