During SEC Media Days, reporters were unrelenting when it came to questions regarding player conduct after Johnny Manziel’s busy offseason. When Will Muschamp was posed with the ‘Manziel Question’, he gave us this response:
“Well, you’re 100% responsible. When you sign a student-athlete to come to the University of Florida, I look at his parents, guardians, whoever is important to him in his life, tell them it’s my job to be an extension of what’s already happened at home. But you’re a hundred percent responsible for the young man. Everything that happens.”
It hasn’t been a week and Muschamp is already having to walk his talk. Late last night, Florida Linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested for barking at a police dog. Now I was unaware that barking at a dog could be a criminal offense, but Morrison’s actions proved to piss off the police too much. According to the arrest report, Morrison walked by the open window of a police cruiser and barked at a canine named Bear, causing Bear to bark back uncontrollably. The police had enough, arresting a resisting Morrison on site.
It isn’t Morrison’s first run-in with law enforcement, less than a month removed from an arrest after a dispute in a nightclub. Needless to say Muschamp has had enough, announcing on Twitter this morning that Morrison will be suspended “at least two games” to begin the season.
