Nobody likes a flopper, except Will Muschamp.
South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley attempted to earn an Academy Award nomination during last week’s game against Kentucky. After a play in the second half, Bentley walked by UK’s Josh Allen, then flung himself into the air like a rag doll.
I think this is what they call a flop pic.twitter.com/Steh9kpy9B

Some soccer players would be proud of Bentley’s efforts, but one South Carolina fan was not. During Will Muschamp’s weekly call-in show, one fan asked if the coach talked to his quarterback about the play.
“It’s embarrassing to me,” the fan told Muschamp. “It’s not really a good look for us as Gamecocks.”
Muschamp did not seem to have a problem with it.
“If he’s trying to get a 15-yard penalty, then I’m all for it,” Muschamp said. “The guy is a hell of a competitor. If he’s trying to get a 15-yard penalty, let’s do it. The guy competes his [butt] off.”
Get used to it Gamecocks. You’re going to see a lot of this in the future from your wunderkind quarterback.
