David Pollack sympathizes with Will Muschamp over 'atrocious' missed penalty calls
ESPN college football analyst David Pollack didn’t mince words when he discussed what he believed to be missed penalty calls that went against South Carolina in its game against Florida this past Saturday.
During an appearance on “College Football Live,” Pollack went on a rant about a pair of plays in the Gamecocks’ 38-27 loss, sympathizing with head coach Will Muschamp for these potential missed calls having an impact on a close game against the No. 7 Gators.
“If I’m Muschamp, I’m pissed, I am absolutely livid,” Pollack said while breaking down a play on the show. “First of all, that is atrocious. That is a block, there is no intent to be a receive whatsoever. A false start not called, a hold not called. That’s seven points, the hold that wasn’t called is another seven points. That’s 14 points on the board.
“These were enormous plays in that game. Florida won the game, I’m not going to say South Carolina deserved to win, but if I’m Will Muschamp, I am irate, I’m taking off the old-man glasses and slamming them on somebody. It went a long way in deciding the game and I would be irate, I’d be mad.”

It’s possible that those plays could have affected the Florida-South Carolina game, but that won’t change the fact that the Gamecocks lost and are 3-4 after their two-game winning streak came to an end.
South Carolina will try to bounce back on Saturday as it travels to Tennessee for a game that starts at 4 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
