Will Muschamp has no animosity toward Florida Gators as he returns to The Swamp
South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp insists there are no hard feelings between him and the Florida Gators. He said that in the spring, and he said that Sunday night in a teleconference with reporters, as his Gamecocks prepare to come to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday.
"We had four great years at the University of Florida," Muschamp said. "I have tremendous respect for the university, the program. I grew up in Gainesville. I grew up a Gator...We've got great memories. We've got great friends that are friends to this day.
"In this profession, if you don't win enough games you get fired. That's part of it."
The game will have another wrinkle, because it's UF's senior day...so most of the Gators being honored will be playing their final game at The Swamp against the coach who recruited them there.
Muschamp said he doesn't know how much that knowledge of personnel will help him Saturday. He hasn't heard from any of his former players this week, and he's not sure what that feeling will be like.
"We'll cross that bridge when we come to it," Muschamp said.
