Florida's Harrison escapes further discipline following ejection


It's one thing to get kicked out of a game. It's quite another to make contact with two coaches, including the head coach, during a heated sideline discussion after being kicked out of a game.

From Marcus Mariota's seven-TD performance to freshman Jameis Winston's KO of Maryland, here are 40 things we learned about Week 6 in college football. **More ...**

Florida center Jonotthan Harrison, reportedly mild-mannered normally, might eventually draw more attention for the latter than the former. He was ejected from Florida's 30-10 win over Arkansas on Saturday night after arguing with an official. According to the Palm Beach Post, he will not be subjected to further discipline by the SEC, which is an option for the conference under certain circumstances following ejections.

But further discipline is an option for Florida coach Will Muschamp, and according to the same publication, Harrison's sideline discussions with tight ends coach Derek Lewis and Muschamp both included physical contact.

"Jon's an emotional guy, he lost his temper and did something he shouldn't have done," Muschamp said. "He was ejected from the game, and rightfully so. We'll handle it and move forward."

What does "we'll handle it" mean? Muschamp didn't say specifically, but fans, not to mention NFL clubs potentially interested in the fifth-year senior projected as a potential late-round draft choice, can only wonder if Harrison's actions on the sideline will be addressed as much or more than his actions on the field.
