    This would NEVER happen under Urban Meyer!

    Discharge a fire arm into a vehicle, repeatedly violate coeds, rampant drug use, maybe... but never prepaid credit card fraud...

    I'm soooo sorry for these tools...

    UF No charges, FSU no charges; for everything else........

    Full Disclosure. That last post was from the MGOBLOG site. I normally would not pilfer from others but it and many others are just too fun not to share. Use Caution if you visit the Michigander's site it can be quite salty.

    @RedDawg Gurley was suspended because the roof on his Mom's house was leaking and signing a bunch of autographs for a shady sports memorabilia dealer was the only way he had to raise the $4K needed to replace it.

    Everybody's gonna look at it differently. And yeah if they could have, I'd have rather them taken out a loan to replace the roof. But I don't really have a problem with what Gurley did.

    I have to believe that UF is concerned with NCAA implications as these players are all suspended from all team activities not just the game. A few years ago UNC had similar numbers of suspensions (not similar offence) and most went the whole season without in most cases any decision being reached as to whether rules were violated. If there is a NCAA part to this story don't expect any decision any time soon. It may be UF compliance not McElwain holding them out.

    If there was ever an opportunity to try and flip a Gator commit from the 18 or19 class, now would be the time. If I were the parent of a player that's made a UF commitment, I would certainly be concerned with what's happening in Gainesville. Hint Hint.

    Only one's I would consider would be Corral, Copeland, Chase and Pitts. Even then only if we don't get Fields or Ford

    Exactly, McElwain is beyond soft on disciplining players. He's doing this in hopes the NCAA doesn't take it further.

    When this story first broke Neil Shulman (of inallkindsofweather) reported (among other things) that the events took place "some time ago" and no player will be kicked out of school or dismissed from the team and the issue had already been handled internally.
    IF that's true, McElwain had known for a while and was trying to keep the story of his players receiving improper benefits (which necessitates suspension during NCAA investigation; remember Gurley?) on the down low.
    IMO: The players weren't going to be suspended until the internet blew up and Finebaum (et al.) got hold of it.

    And on a related note, Coach Butch Jones confirms another Vol starter, OT Drew Richmond, will be out for the GT game for violating team rules.

    If re-instatement is dependent upon NCAA approval, good luck. That could take a LONG, LONG time. Seems like Gurley's went on forever back in the day.
