If you were placing bets on who would have a beef with South Carolina coach Will Muschamp following Day 4 of SEC Media Days, country music star Justin Moore probably had some real long-shot odds. But here we are.
Muschamp, who used to coach at Florida prior to becoming the Gamecocks head man, dropped a good-natured zinger on a Gators beat reporter during his opening comments in Hoover, Ala., on Thursday morning, which was the final day of a long week for many SEC media members.
“I’m really excited about our future. It’s great to be back. Last day. You guys don’t look real good, to be honest with you,” Muschamp said to weary media members in the crowd. “You look a little worn out. Pat Dooley, what’s up? You remind me of that Josh Turner song, “You Look Like I Need a Drink.”
The remark drew plenty of chuckles from the crowd. No harm, no foul. Right?
Well, the problem was this: Country music star Josh Turner doesn’t sing that song.
It is actually performed by Justin Moore, who is a noted Arkansas Razorbacks fan. When he caught wind of the mistake, he made sure to let Muschamp hear about it on Twitter on Thursday evening:
In case you were wondering, here’s the song in question:
UPDATE: Will Muschamp has made things right with Moore, offering him tickets to see Arkansas and South Carolina play on Oct. 7 at Williams-Brice Stadium.
