Heading into the 2014 college football season, three Florida players–wide receiver Demarcus Robinson, and defensive tackles Jay-nard Bostwick and Darious Cummings–were suspended for their team’s opening game against Idaho.
The Gators’ contest against the Vandals didn’t really happen, though. Florida’s opening game was filled with rain and lightning delays and eventually postponed. Only one play–the opening kickoff–occurred.
Still, Will Muschamp said Monday that the trio of players had served their suspensions, causing some to criticize–or, at least, question–the coach’s discipline policy. Today, Muschamp defended his decision making process.
Muschamp: At the end of day, I handle the discipline in this program and make the decisions in this program and it’s been handled very well.

There’s a chance Florida’s game against Idaho won’t be made up, so it’s quite possible that the three Gator players will have missed a chance to play. If it gets played, though, those players won’t have missed any real action.
Florida hosts Eastern Michigan this Saturday.
