Gamecocks Not “Will Muschampions” … Yet

FORMER FLORIDA COACH STILL A FREE AGENT … FOR NOW By FITSNEWS || In what appears to be a case of premature journalistic release, multiple media outlets in the Palmetto State reported this week that the University of South Carolina had hired former Florida head football coach Will Muschamp.

By FITSNEWS || In what appears to be a case of premature journalistic release, multiple media outlets in the Palmetto State reported this week that the University of South Carolina had hired former Florida head football coach Will Muschamp.

Specifically, these websites reported that Muschamp had been hired as “head coach in charge of defense” –  a title bump from defensive coordinator – and had also been named “head coach in waiting.”  These reports also had Muschamp accepting a salary of $1.9 million a year, with USC president Harris Pastides getting credit for pulling the trigger on the deal.

Is any of it true?

No … at least not yet.

Muschamp – who has been offered defensive coordinator positions at Auburn and Texas A&M (in addition to the rumored offering from South Carolina) – is still vacationing in the Caribbean.  We’re not saying he won’t be hired by the Gamecocks, but it hasn’t happened yet.

South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier has done his best to tamp down the Muschamp speculation – which this website officially kicked off back in September.  Not only that, he has yet to fire Lorenzo Ward, whose unit surrendered 5,203 yards (433.6 per game/ 6.25 per play) and 374 points (31.2 per game) last year.

This just in from FNN: Will Muschamp was spotted at Owens Field in Columbia, SC with Steve Spurrier, Ray Tanner, Joe Morrison’s Ghost, and Santa Claus. All of them were boarding Lou Holtz’s private plane. shows the plane is bound for the North Pole with a stop over in Orlando and The Dominican Republic. Updates to follow via Facebook, Twitter, your local message boards, and random anonymous bloggers.

It is reported that Will Muschamp has purchased a house on Lake Murray north west of Columbia, multiple Gamecock fans are en route to the Lexington County tax office to pull copies of the newly recorded deed. Grainy pictures of the deed to follow.

Very funny, yet some how, the Internet of Things says it’s all true.

Steve is looking pimpilicious!

Too bad they didn’t spend just another 2 seconds on photoshop. It looks pretty lousy.

With numbers like that, maybe the HBC should move Whammy to OFFENSIVE coordinator!

Lorenzo Ward is statistically the worse defensive coach in USC History (per The State Newspaper), and USC has one of the worse overall records of any Division 1 NCAA Football team in history. Thus, making Lorenzo Ward the worse college defensive coach in history. That’s just the facts.

Further, Ward’s complete lack of knowledge in how to operate a wide tackle 6 defense, which is what his open 4 defense is trying to be, is astounding. But, it’s understandable as his mentor, Les Johnson, who just got fired at Auburn, didn’t know it either. Ward has no idea how to run his linebackers. Who were out of position nearly all the time. Funny how Clemson, running a similar defense could stunt their linebackers with success (best in NCAA). While USC with better players, could not. All year, Ward’s linebackers were 6 yards off the ball, never moved and made every tackle an “Open Field Tackle,” the hardest in football. Resulting in USC’s awful tackling record.

Football is defensively a very simple game. You either know it, or you don’t. And, the facts speak for themselves. Lorenzo Ward has proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that he has no clue how to run a defense. He should have been fired last September after the Texas A&M disaster.

Beautifully summed up… I too think he should have been let go earlier… it probably would have resulted in a couple more this year.

315.5 ypg in 2012 and 4102 yards allowed total
4550 yards allowed total in 2013 and 350.0 ypg. Not bad his first two years. This year it is a matter of size, experience, and condition of our players. It is not the play calling or coaching. It is the players inability to make a simple tackle and the d line to put pressure of the quaterback. And all that is due to them being extremely unatheletic.

Respectfully disagree. Having the number 1 NFL draft pick and another 1st round draft pick as half of your defensive down lineman makes any coach look good. No matter how bad a coach he is.

FITS has a chance to get one right….you know he’ll crap his pants if this does not happen w/ Muschamp. FITS desperately needs something he predicted to come true…

Twitter has been a riot today. Lawd @ the gullible cluckers. SCAR fans do love a good “unofficial source” don’t they?

Well then FITS is perfect…

Wait a second…I was said to have “flaws in my logic” for saying basically the exact same things here:

There is no job to hire him for. As of right now, USC is denying contacting anyone.

How can this be true if “Dave Chappelle I’m Rick james”, who professes to be a logic scholar say its not?

Dave Chappelle I'm Rick James December 7, 2014 at 12:24 pm

“How can this be true . . .?”

I’m sure there are an infinite number of possibilities for how that can still be true.

You haven’t figured it out yet? I see you are still broadly construing my remarks (incorrectly, at that).

E Norma Scok December 7, 2014 at 2:08 pm

Oh we know how it can’t be true.

To put it simply, you’re an idiot, and too much of an idiot at that to just admit you were wrong.

Dave Chappelle I'm Rick James December 8, 2014 at 10:20 am

OK. If this is now a “name-calling” event, then I’m done. See you on another thread.

Stay classy!
