Muschamp was visiting Daytona Beach, Fla., on Tuesday as part of the 10 "Gator Gatherings" this spring.

Discipline was an often-talked about theme during Urban Meyer's six-tenure with the Florida Gators. From 2005-2010, 31 players were arrested, including 10 who faced felony charges. Though of those 10, nine were either reduced to a misdemeanor or dropped altogether.

Meyer often attributed the run-ins to "stupid mistakes." Nonetheless, there were a few of them. Perhaps, more than he or anyone else for that matter would have liked.

When speaking at the Volusia County Gator Gathering on Tuesday in Daytona Beach, Fla, Meyer's successor, Will Muschamp, was asked by a fan about his personal philosophy related to team discipline. His response was brief -- if not also optimistic.

"I hope they don't get in trouble," he remarked during the second of 10 stops as part of the annual "Gator Gatherings." The last stop is May 24 in Destin, Fla.
