Parker was FSU's best offensive player last season, and was supposed to be this season, right?

What do the 'Noles do now?

I suggest the FSU deal with the guns and weed like UF.. ;D   I see my groupies are right on que!! LOL


Seriously, with a felony pending according FSU policy, he won't play at FSU again unless the charges are reduced.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State officials said they will have an announcement on the future of standout receiver Preston Parker after the athlete's arrest in South Florida on drug and weapons charges.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, Parker was arrested early Tuesday on charges of carrying a concealed .45-caliber handgun and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.

Parker was named Florida State's most valuable player last season after leading the team with 1,513 all-purpose yards and 62 receptions.

The 21-year-old's arrest is the first major discipline problem at the school since the arrival of new athletic director Randy Spetman earlier this year.

It was not his.  He was holding onto it for a friend of his who happens to be a Florida Gator...

This is exactly why I don't read this part of PR. It's just a bunch of people getting back into their same old arguments as they did in college.  One guy posessing a gun and some weed does not make him a thug and it does not make one school better than the other because you KNOW that both schools have it, most players just don't get caught.

What does it make him then?

<sigh>  Bowden is the king of second chances but I think the new AD might have a thing or two to say about this first.  The school (Boosters) are paying his tuition and I assume there is a standard of conduct he is supposed to follow.  I doubt pot and guns are on the "approved" list.  If he is found guilty you toss him from the team.  If found not guilty you suspend him from the team for a year and see how badly he wants to come back.  I'm an FSU alum and fan and it pains me to even have to think about it, but I'm being as objective as possible and if he does not have a carry license for the gun, that is baaaad news in my book.

ill definitely let 'em slide on the weed, but the gun?  thats the definition of trying to live the "thug life".

also not parkers first encounter with the law...already has a case of minor theft/shoplifting.

as for runole, probably not looking like a great idea to have brought up the gun trouble at UF so often...

re-learn that football is a team sport.  Call a good game and spread the ball around.

Maybe he was on his way to a gun range when he found the pot and was taking it to the police station.  It could happen.....

The kid made a mistake which he will pay for.  Make him take gun and drug classes while putting him on a short leash.  His entire life and playing career shouldn't be ruined by one lapse in judgement.  I feel bad for some of you guys kids.  One mistake and you are going to throw them out on the street right?

Our mistakes fo not define us, our reaction/action to those mistakes do.
