— Florida coach Will Muschamp says Ohio State did report the Gators for possible NCAA violations.

Muschamp told reporters at SEC Media Day no violations were found by the SEC or NCAA, and then he took a jab at Ohio State.

“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,” he said, according to USA Today.

Ohio State was banned from the postseason last year for NCAA violations.

The Buckeyes reportedly turned in a Florida assistant for having contact with a recruit during an impermissible time and for a Gators player giving another recruit a ride to campus.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, Muschamp's predecessor at Florida, has denied being directly involved in reporting Florida.
