Willl Muschamp: 'You go out and you get beat, you get beat'
Posted by: Josh Kendall on January 3, 2013
Florida did not lose the Sugar Bowl because it was disappointed about not playing for the national championship, Will Muschamp said.
"I think we had good preparation. We just didn't play very well. Didn't coach very well," Muschamp said after Louisville beat his Gators 33-23 on Wednesday night. "Our kids were excited about being here at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, and they outcoached us and outplayed us."
The Gators had a school-record 194 yards in penalties.
"Penalties are disappointing," Muschamp said. "Going to continue to work on that. Got outcoached and outplayed. That's what I told the football team. That's the bottom line. You go out and you get beat, you get beat. And that's what happened."
"We've had a great year," he said. "We're building something here. We're building a program. It was an unfortunate setback, and it's one game. So we still won 11 games, and we still did a lot of very positive things in my opinion this season. Obviously, this is a sour day and a sour note, and I apologize to our fans and the university."
Honestly, we're a little disappointed we didn't see this Muschamp after the game:
