Will Muschamp: I-N-T-E-N-S-E
This is the reaction a player gets when he commits a costly mistake that adversely affects the Gators. Whether you like his style or not, Will Muschamp can never be accused of being too easy-going. He definitely has a fire, a compassion, and an intensity for his job and his football team. As a rival fan, I personally think he goes a little overboard with his demeanor and sometimes he comes across as a real jerk, but it's hard to argue his results It's also hard to imagine the player in the above photo making that same mistake twice. Now in his second year as the head man at Florida, his players are beginning to inherit some of that passion and fire. I have to admit, I did not think Muschamp could bring the Gators back into prominence as quickly as he has. I'm still not willing to concede anything to him yet, but as Tom Cruise said in Top Gun, "it's looking good so far." I suppose that "looking good" depends a lot on one's perspective. Just sayin...
