Chris Rainey was arrested this morning for stalking a woman and sending threatening text messages. It seems like a long time since a Gator player has been arrested but is it just me or does Meyer get a free pass on how poorly behaved his team is?

As far as football is concerned, this is a big blow to an already struggling offense, especially if he is kick off the team as this story reports he may be.

"I'm not afraid of him. I'm more afraid of all the repercussions."


Why would you call the police then?

We're jumping the gun assuming he'll be kicked off.


Coach Urban Meyer could suspend Rainey for Florida's Southeastern Conference opener. Meyer has suspended other players, including defensive end Carlos Dunlap last season and receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. this summer, immediately following arrests.


Not one reliable source has reported the dismissal.

Probably Ole Miss. The Jeremiah Masoli situation shows they have no problem using felons.

It says that he is no longer with the team. No telling what that actually means, but it sounds like he is, at least temporarily, off the team.

She probably just wanted a restraining order and didn't realize if you call the police the dude's getting arrested. And I'm also wondering if the context of the "time to die" text wasn't more of a threat of suicide than violence? That would explain why she called the police if she wasn't afraid.

This is a much bigger problem now then ever before. NFL teams are gonna have a hard time drafting players with a clean record.

The text message said "Time to die" so he very well could have been talking about himself.

Sounds like he's more of an emo-baby than a thug to me.

Here is another story about it. This story seems to make it more obvious that the threat was directed at the woman. He also supposedly said "wait and see what happens when they leave" over the phone. This is a little harder to prove, but all indications point to him threatening the woman and not contemplating suicide.

Jeremiah pled guilty to second-degree burglary, which is a felony in Oregon. So yes, he is a felon.

It was reduced to a misdemeanor because of his guilty plea.

I think even Dennis Reynolds would think telling a girl it's time to die is a bit outside of the DENNIS System. He is all about separating entirely, not obsessively stalking.

30 is today's magic number. As in 30 of Urban's players have been arrested or faced charges. That's something like 16% of the players he's recruited.

Kwality.

Urban's ridin' dirty. (http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/college/os-florida-gators-chris-rainey-arrest20100915,0,1159022.story)

Since he has taken the job at UF (2005)he has signed 141 kids (including 4 transfers from other schools, Lutrel Alford - Furman, Ryan Smith - Utah, Emmanuel Moody - USC, and Chris Martin - Cal).

I don't have all of the arrest details, but I am pretty sure that some of the early arrests were Zook recruited players.


From another site:


Arrests where charges were dropped/not pursued:
Janoris Jenkins
Carl Johnson
Riley Cooper
Jermaine Cunningham
Tony Joiner
Dustin Doe
Dorian Munroe


Charges dropped/deferred:
Louis Murphy - community service - suspended 3 games
Jon Demps - probation - kicked off team
Avery Atkins - pre-trial intervention - suspended/left team
Dawayne Grace (2) - deferred prosecution - kicked off team
Cam Newton - deferred prosecution - suspended for the season
Torrey Davis - case closed - kicked off team
Brandon James - charges reduced - 1 game suspension


Major Crimes:
Jacques Rickerson (2) - kicked off team
Jamar Hornsby (2) - kicked off team
Ronnie Wilson (3) - kicked off team



Walk-ons:
Marquis Hannah - case dismissed
John Curtis - served probation


I see 24 arrests of 19 players (17 scholarship players). Of those only 3 players had major crime charges that stood and all 3 were kicked off the team.

IMO, this is WAAAAY overblown.

UGA is probably much worse.

**** their AD was arrested too.

edit: Just looked at the numbers and there were 10 players arrested just this summer.

Have we reached a point in college football and society for that matter when it is OK to make light of domestic abuse and death threats against women?

Yes. Yes we have.

Now go somewhere else and bawwwww, Mr. Bawwww Baw Bawwww. It's college kids making/buying t-shirts for a football game. The back of it says "VOLS, *****!!!" Obviously means these people condone death threats and are 100% super srsly serial.

Tony Dungy will likely want to meet with him and will find him to be "an upstanding young man" as long as he doesn't use the F-word or coach the Jets.

From another site:

Who gives a **** if they were Zook recruited players. Look, I'm as pissed off at Zook's incompetence as much as any Illini fan, but regardless of who recruited them they became Urban Meyer's players when he took over.

A coach is responsible for the players on his team no matter who recruited them. The University of Florida program (like the Illinois program) lacks discipline off the field. Blame goes to Urban Meyer and Ron Zook for their players misbehaving.

Sure, some of the early arrests were Zook recruited players, but the same damn thing is happening with Meyer recruited players right now.

Masoli was prosecuted for burglary &/or stolen property possession I think as a Quacker. And pot, which is a misdemeanor ticket in Oregon. If anything turns up missing in the Ole Miss athletic dorm, guess whose door gets knocked on 1st.........

Both on & off the field:

That's quite a roster. Also, there was the Spikes eye-gouging thing last yr vs. UGA (suspended for the Vanderbilt game), then a starter asleep dead drunk behind the wheel at a Gainesville traffic intersection at 3 AM IDK who that was, then the elder Pouncey center took $100K from somebody (an agent?) after losing the SECCG.

Those who say Meyer is getting a pass have a good case.

Anyone keeping count of Florida players in trouble with the law now? There was the Spikes eye-gouging thing last yr, then a starter asleep dead drunk behind the wheel at a Gainesville traffic intersection at 3 AM, then the elder Pouncey center took $100K after losing the SECCG. There are others as well. Those who say Meyer is getting a pass have a good case.
Since when did eye gouging on a football field become a legal matter?

When the aggrieved party chooses a court for redress? I'm not saying they'd win, but there's no reason it couldn't happen, and given the offense there's no reason the case couldn't go to trial.

****** up when someone gets kicked off a team for smoking weed (which i guarantee close to 80-90% of ncaa football players do) and this guy is allowed to keep playing.

I think 80-90% is quite an exaggeration. I'd say maybe 15-20% smoke weed regularly while probably 60-70% have tried it once or twice.

i'd bet you at least 60-70% smoke regularly. we're talking about college kids who get offered everything to them for free, a lot of which will never make it to the nfl. they're going to take advantage of that while they can. florida's national championship teams were notorious for weed smoking and tolerance thereof.

Yup...let's not get into a "legalize it" debate, but it really sucks that JJ - one of the best players in CFB period - is gone from the FBS. I'm gonna miss seeing him shut down elite WRs and I hope he still gets drafted where he deserves (top 10) or ends up a Buc.

I think it's closer to this than the other. Weed has been a problem for the Canes recently, the cause of many suspensions and doghouse sitters. Definitely more than 60% have tried it...everyone's curious and these kids do a lot dumber things, i.e. saying "I'm 50% committed to school X".

He got arrested 3 times. While I don't think it should be illegal to smoke (another topic for another forum), he couldn't stay out of trouble. He got arrested for fighting as well.

Let's not pretend it was just for smoking.
