Strong statements from Muschamp and one of his players

So by now, you've probably seen the fake punt from LSU in which their punter got called for taunting (and they lost the 7 points).
Well, after the game, Will Muschamp had some fairly strong words for his own team about that play.
"We had two guys that were assigned to do their job. They didn’t do it. And they did what they wanted to do, and those guys aren’t going to play in our program anymore, guys that just do what they want to do when they want to do it. It’s undisciplined football and that’s my fault, nobody else’s.”
Florida RB / TE / QB Trey Burton had some equally strong, if not more bizarre words for LSU after the Tigers had just beaten Florida 41-11. LSU held Florida to a season low 213 yards; but Burton had this to say about LSU's secondary, "They’re not as good as advertised. I think the D-linemen and front seven is really, really good.”
Advice from FootballScoop staff: Trey, don't incite the honey badger. He's feisty and won't forget.
A reporter then pressed Burton on which defense (Alabama or LSU) is better, "Alabama’s hands down a lot better. A lot more physical, just tougher guys,” Burton said. “If I had to pick one to not go against, it’d definitely be Alabama.”
For those of you that are not aware (perhaps any viewers in Guatemala), LSU travels to Alabama to play on November 5th. Both teams have a bye the week before in order to prepare. Epic.
4pm Update> It has been brought to our attention that LSU's #7, the aforementioned honey badger, responded to Burton's statements via twitter: I love the fact that Trey Burton from Florida opens his mouth and say our secondary is not good, lol Boy you Soft as cotton! #1LSU
