Florida coach Will Muschamp snipes at former Gators boss Urban Meyer

— The current Florida football coach took a shot at his predecessor Tuesday during SEC Media Days.

Asked about Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who led the Gators to two national championships and who turned Florida in for an alleged secondary violation, Will Muschamp huffed.

“We didn’t do anything wrong,” said Muschamp, starting his third season in Gainesville. “The University of Florida didn’t do anything wrong. And so we appreciated our friends from Ohio making sure we’re compliant with NCAA rules. They certainly know a little about that subject.”

Ohio State is serving probation for violations that occurred under former coach Jim Tressell. The Buckeyes were ineligible for postseason play last year but can play in a bowl game this season.
