The stench in Gainesville at UF!

Runole:
 Jenkins, the cornerback, eventually left Florida for North Alabama after Meyer’s successor, Will Muschamp, dismissed him from the team after marijuana arrests. Several months later, Jenkins spoke to The Orlando Sentinel about his dismissal.

“If Coach Meyer were still coaching, I’d still be playing for the Gators,” he was quoted as saying. “Coach Meyer knows what it takes to win.”

Wonder if the UF media can silence the NY TImes?

The sad part about the whole Hernandez issue is there is an endemic problem in the way UF deals with its lawbreaking football players.  When you have a Bull Gator booster SA Cervone and a DA Huntley Johnson that works pro bono to get practically every charge reduced or eliminated to keep them playing Saturday's game clearly something is terribly wrong at UF.

Are there any UF fans not appalled by this behavior of the criminal justice system and the UF athletic department administered by Foley.?   Is winning really that important?  Please don't give me the "Every school does this" crap.  I believe it is time for Bull Gators to put their wallets away and seriously clean up the mess they have created..  How many times are charges mysteriously dropped before a trial even occurs?  It doesn't take much to realize that victims wallets are being fattened to keep CRIMINAL players on the field.

Is there no integrity honesty decency or ethics at UF when it involves their athletic teams.  Is there even such a thing as accountability for ones deplorable behavior?   


Sandusky was horrible but collectively it would appear that UF's handling of its bad apples is equally appalling.   You have to wonder had Hernandez been properly disciplined and held accountable there may be as many as 3 people alive today.

you start your rant with a quote about jenkins being kicked off the team...then you ask if there is a such thing as accountability?

 The Jenkin's quote is just an indictment on Meyer and  UF at that time..   Accountability?   Surely this is a sign that Muschamp is completely different  right?

Hmmmm?  It appears that might be a bit premature...

Again I ask the question do you approve of the actions of Cervone, Johnson, Foley ,and Bull Gator boosters wallets for keeping UF football players involved in criminal activity on the field no matter what it takes?

did you even read the article?  im guessing not.  ac leonard?  gone.  dunker?  gone. 

i have no idea about cervone or johnson, couldnt tell you what they do, who they are, where they come from.  and  most dont unless they are members at warchant.  Foley is widely recognized as one of the premiere AD's in the country.
