Florida redshirt senior running back Mark Thompson continues to support Randy Shannon as he should.
“He got put in a tough spot,” Mark Thompson said. “At the end of the season, for people to be not supporting him and not giving him the support that he needs and think that he’s doing a bad job, that’s not it.”
Mark Thompson brings the water to polities.
“This is going out on a limb — a long one — but I want to say, just as an analogy, like how [George] Bush was in office and then [Barack] Obama got elected, a lot of things that [Bush] did wrong, they tried to put on Obama. I think that’s the same kind of situation that’s going on,” Mark Thompson said. “That’s my personal opinion. He’s a great coach. He knows what he’s doing for sure. He has us a lot more loose around this building and in practice.”
Mark Thompson likes Randy Shannon as a person and as a coach.
“I really like him as a coach and as a man,” Mark Thompson said. “Hopefully his future is good with whatever he’s going to do.”
