Florida coach Will Muschamp showed his frustration and fired back at critics Wednesday after he lifted the suspensions of three players even though the season opener was suspended by a lightning storm.

Muschamp was testy when asked by reporters about criticism that he went easy on starting defensive tackle Darious Cummings, wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and defensive tackle Jay-nard Bostwick.

"It's not just about suspending players for games," Muschamp said during his weekly media session on the SEC teleconference. "There's a lot of things that go into discipline. It's about altering and changing behavior, which we've done. I think our discipline speaks for itself and how we've handled our football team, OK? If it was about suspension, you'd never have an issue. Right?

"At the end of the day, it's more than that. There's a lot of things that go into those situations, a lot more than people know. And it's very frustrating for me as a coach ... to have someone being critical and you don't even have all the information."

The Gators ran just the opening kickoff against Idaho on Saturday before lightning forced the teams off the field. The game was suspended after nearly four hours of weather delays. An announcement on rescheduling or canceling the game has not yet been made.

Muschamp reinstated Cummings, Robinson and Bostwick on Monday, and said all three players would play against Eastern Michigan as the Gators reopen their season at home Saturday.

"We did have Darious Cummings and Jay-nard Bostwick suspended for the first game for a violation of team rules. They will be back this week with us," Muschamp said Monday. "Not just as far as the suspension of a game, but they've handled a lot of other things for me, as well as Demarcus Robinson, who had a university sanction that's been resolved."
