Just like that, Florida coach Will Muschamp took the upper hand in the unannounced war against decorated predecessor Urban Meyer.

The current Ohio State coach has, in recent weeks, denied tattling on Florida for minor NCAA violations. Someone from Ohio State – whether Meyer or not – asked that potential minor violations committed by Florida be investigated.

Muschamp took the opportunity on stage at SEC Media Days to strike back at Meyer.

“That’s really a dead issue with me,” Muschamp said. “In both situations, we were turned in by Ohio. We didn’t do anything wrong. The University of Florida didn’t do anything wrong. And so we appreciated our friends from Ohio making sure we’re compliant with NCAA rules. They certainly know a little bit about that subject.”


Ohio State, of course, went undefeated in 2012 – its first season under Meyer. It would have potentially faced Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship Game if not for a postseason ban stemming from a scandal that forced the Buckeyes to fire former coach Jim Tressel.

Meyer forcefully denied to The Gainesville Sun any involvement in the investigation.
