ESPN KNOWS AUBURN ASSISTANT SWEARS BY HIS DEFENSE: Funny how during low-scoring snooze-fests, the lack of passion on the field can be made up for by the staff off it. First, the Zooker shoves a cameraman after the Illini’s 10-6 loss to Iowa. Now, we find an Auburn coach selecting some choice in-game words when talking about the opposition:
While televising Auburn’s 9-7 triumph over Arkansas, ESPN microphones caught Tigers defensive coordinator Will Muschamp giving his tough troops some uncensored encouragement.Auburn had just made another stand against QB Casey Dick and the lackluster Razorback offense. (The play included Mike Patrick calling the action as, “Dick pressured in the end zone.“)As the D came off the field, Muschamp could be heard over the air greeting his kids with these ribald remarks:
“Boom! Motherf—er, yeah! That’s what I’m talking about! Knock these motherf—ers out!“
Oblivious to Muschamp’s audible outburst, ESPN analyst Todd Blackledge quickly commented, “Well, Will Muschamp just has to be thrilled with the way his defense has been playing.”
F— yeah, he’s thrilled!
