Will Muschamp is a Gator, not a Padawan: Football coach baffled by 'Star Wars' question

This, apparently is not one of the plays practiced by the Florida Gators.
Will Muschamp is coach of the undefeated Florida Gators college football team.

When it comes to "Star Wars," though, don't expect Muschamp to be calling on The Force to help his team defeat Coach Nick Saban and Alabama on Saturday. He's not, as the video of a press conference makes clear, a big fan of the film franchise. But at least he's a good sport about it.

Reporter: "Excuse the Star Wars reference, but you guys kind of have a master vs. padawan thing going on with you and Nick. What's the sentiment of that ..."

Coach: "What's a padawan?"

Reporter (amid laughter in room): "You've never seen Star Wars?"

Coach: "Huh?" Muschamp then goes on to explain he did see "Star Wars" and "The Empire Strikes Back" - once each - and added: "I ain't seen nothin' after that. I don't know what a padawan is. You didn't call me a bad name, did you?"
