Muschamp apologizes to Juice for not recruiting him

Will Muschamp made a huge mistake by never offering a scholarship to Garrett Johnson at Florida. Johnson is from two hours outside of Gainesville and he had hoped to receive that coveted offer, but it never came. He ended up at Kentucky instead. (Thank God.)

Last year, Johnson torched Muschamp and the Gators for 154 yards and two touchdowns in only his third college football game. He got a shot at Muschamp, now the defensive coordinator at Auburn, again last night, and made him pay once more. Johnson had nine catches for 160 yards this time.

After the game, Bradley McKee of KSTV caught Muschamp owning up to his recruiting mistake. He told Johnson, “I screwed up… You’re a hell of a player.”

Muschamp’s lead recruiter for Johnson at Florida? Joker Phillips.

Thanks, Joker. Well played.

    Assuming talent is equal it then comes down to attitude. When UK is behind in basketball with two minutes to go, we don’t panic, we just figure, we got this and the other team chokes. Last night we panicked in the last two minutes starting with their punt and eight guys on the field. Same on the play calling at the end.

      Exactly. The really good programs expect to win. We are still at the stage of thinking and hoping we can win. It will take winning a lot of these tight games to develop that mindset.

    Hate when opposing coaches do this. It’s there way of saying, “sorry you landed at Kentucky, you would’ve done so much better with us,”
    Screw him.

      too much into it that’s what it says. You’re working hard to feel insulted.

    It’s like he’s saying I could have gotten you if I wanted you. Granted in Juice’s case it sounds like he definitely would’ve gone to Florida but that quote takes on a sense of superiority.

    Any chance we can send Joker to different programs throughout the SEC to sabotage their football teams for us? Kind of like a UK double-naut spy. 🙂 We got Florida, next we could maybe go after Tennessee, then ‘Bama…

    Having grown up 2 hours from Gainesville as well, I can assure Muschamp that he screwed up a hell of a lot more than just missing out on Juice!

    We found another way to take snide, immature potshots at a UK alum. KSR writers better hope they’re never down because karma says they’re going to get kicked quite a bit. Joker is gone. Let. It. Go.

      Joker set UK Football back 5 years. He was a political appointee and in over his head from the start. I’ve got no problem with KSR and others calling it like it is…
