Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been arrested on a marijuana possession charge, his second arrest in the past 20 months.

Jenkins was arrested early Saturday in a Gainesville nightclub. Corporal Tscharna Senn, public information officer for the Gainesville Police Department, says an officer found Jenkins in the club's bathroom with a "small, clear bag of cannabis."

i think tenn is really going to surprise people. i can see them having a great year.

as for auburn, i can see a down year with 4 losses ish. i compare barrett trotter (who will probably be the starter at qb) to a colt mccoy. this years teams has aloottt of depth though. i think the loss of 4 starters on the o line with all that chemistry is going to hurt just as much as cam.

we'll see how dyer does with cam gone and more focus on him. i love me some him though. its going to be an exciting year for sure.

I suppose the only real mysteries here is which teams fill out the 3-8 spots or so in the SEC for more road trips to bowl games where Big-Ten fans can bring their ice scrapers with them to clean up the remains of their football team off the parking lot pavement after "the brotherhood" gets finished with 'em :^)

Arkansas Razorbacks receiver Lance Ray has been arrested and charged with marijuana possession.

The 19-year-old Ray was arrested late Saturday night by university police after the smell of marijuana was detected coming from his dorm room. According to a preliminary police report, Ray had a brown rolled cigarette containing a green leafy substance that tested positive for marijuana.

The misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance charge carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail.

I'm sorry,but the timing is a little suspicious. The guy has been in trouble before, but now he's conveniently suspended. UGA just happens to be loaded at RB now with King returning, Crowell signing, Ken Malcomb entering his redshirt season, Carlton Thomas returning and maybe even Xander Ogletree competing for some carries. I just wonder if Ealey would be getting suspended, and possibly kicked off the team, had Crowell chosen a different school.

Its got nothing to do with oversigning as UGA isn't over the limit. Ealy has been in all kinds of trouble last year. He failed to show up for something then was punished for it then failed to show up for that. He was already on thin ice for his arrest last year. The new S&C is just toughen up on people showing up to workout when they are suppose to.

In a most coincidental bit of timing, Georgia RB Washaun Ealey returns to the football team right before spring practice starts.

Georgia running back Washaun Ealey has been reinstated to the team, less than three weeks after he was suspended for disciplinary reasons.

Coach Mark Richt said Ealey, who led the team last season with 811 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns, will rejoin team activities on Monday.

Ealey's return is inconsequential, though, since Isaiah Crowell's puppy will **** Ealey up to get Crowell the No. 1 RB spot.

dismissing your best blocker (outside of lineman) and a starter at the FB/H-Back position. i really liked eric but he does have a troubled past.

was arrested for 3rd degree assault in 2009. but was granted youthful offender offense cause he was 19. was suspended 1 game.

he was suspended again that year for the bowl game for academic reasons.

and this year in the NC he knee'd/hit an oregon player after the whistle and caused him to bleed and etc which warrented a 15 yard penalty and almost got him kicked out of the game.

he was also probably going to get some touches at the TB position since all AU has is dyer and a true freshman in tre mason.

http://blogs.ajc.com/recruiting/2011/03/09/ray-drews-announcement-results-in-5-ncaa-violations-for-georgia/

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned that UGA had to report five NCAA rules violations to the SEC as a result of Drew’s Jan. 28 news conference at Thomas County Central High School. Drew, a five-star recruiting prospect, announced that day he was committing to the Bulldogs. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound defensive end has since signed a national letter-of-intent with UGA.

It's the offseason! You know what that means? It's fake 40-yard dash season!

77 (!!!!!!!) points awarded to Auburn. They currently hold an 80-18 lead over second-place Virginia. Short of a miracle, that locks up the SEC's second-straight Fulmer Cup (Georgia) and third in four years (Alabama in 2008).

******* A, man. The Big 10 just can't win in anything football-related against the SEC these days. I had Penn State as a dark horse for the Cup this year.

AUBURN JUST ENDED THE 2011 FULMER CUP. Four Auburn football players have been charged with five counts each of first degree robbery, one count each of first degree burglary, and one count each of theft of property in a home invasion that took place early Friday morning in Auburn. The bond for each of them is $511,000. Antonio Goodwin, Kowalski Q. Kitchens, Michael McNeil, and Harrison Mosley are all in legal straits that are, per Glennon Threatt on Finebaum just a few minutes ago, the worst in the legal system shy of actually killing someone.

The SEC voted unanimously to reduce the amount of scholarships for football from 28 to 25. They have also closed the Jeremiah Masoli loophole by not accepted transfer students that have one year of eligibility left. Both of these new restrictions go into effect 10/1.

Rabscuttle
06-03-2011, 05:16 PM
I really disagree with not allowing grad students to transfer and be eligible immediately. Anyone that gets their undergrad degree has earned the freedom to pursue a higher level of education and should not be punished for doing so by having to sit out a year or stay at a school that doesn't meet his needs/desires. If the student feels another school has a better grad program, the program should thank ihim for his services and wish him well in his future. This really is a sign that the SEC is putting their needs over those of their student athletes. In a conference that is so widely mocked for its scholastic shortcomings, you would think they would get on board with the few students that they can use as examples and keep them happy.

Four Auburn football players have been charged with five counts each of first degree robbery, one count each of first degree burglary, and one count each of theft of property in a home invasion that took place early Friday morning in Auburn. The bond for each of them is $511,000. Antonio Goodwin, Kowalski Q. Kitchens, Michael McNeil, and Harrison Mosley are all in legal straits that are, per Glennon Threatt on Finebaum just a few minutes ago, the worst in the legal system shy of actually killing someone.

A few months old, but holy bajeezus. Just so you know, the most ever points scored in a single season before this was by Alabama in 2008...with 28 points. Before this, the team with the most cummulative points since the FC was created in '06 was Florida...with 59 points.

FSU and Clemson really don't give them much, as they already have a footprint in South Carolina and Northern Florida. I don't think Miami is really all that alluring either. They're only good at one sport, and their fan base is rather shallow (and not wealthy).

If the SEC tried to expand I'm guessing they would want the same 4 teams the Pac 10 wanted (Texas, A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State). Short of that, I'm not sure it's in their best interests to expand at all. I think Virginia Tech would be an interesting add, but I just don't see that happening.

If the SEC were to ever expand the first targets would likely be Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma like bf_51 said. Texas A&M and Virginia Tech are likely if they go to 14 teams. 16 teams is a little tougher to project since outside of VT and TAMU there aren't very solid candidates. Missouri could come into play as could Florida State but both are kinda meh options. Ga. Tech, Clemson, UNC, and Duke are more meh than FSU and Missouri.

According to the Sporting News, word is coming out that Oklahoma and Texas A&M officials may look at moving to the SEC because of the Longhorn Network. This is hardly surprising as there was widespread speculation last year that Texas A&M was in heated discussions with the SEC on moving to that league should a favorable deal not be worked out with the Big XII.

At seemingly the eleventh hour, a deal was worked out that would split the largest chunk of the television payout amongst Texas, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M but that deal has since been minimized by the vast amount of money Texas will receive by forming their own television network in association with ESPN.

The dissolution of the Big XII seems to be all but a foregone conclusion. The remaining members of the Big XII outside of Texas all look to be left in the Longhorn's rearview as that school accumulates a tremendous payout from their current television deal which is coupled with the payout they will still receive from the Big XII.

College football is all about the money and if a university provides itself with a clear advantage, especially over fellow conference members, then those universities left in the cold will search for greener pastures. Texas A&M and Oklahoma seem to be doing just that.

When the Big XII dissolves, it will create a feeding frenzy unlike anything college football has seen since the ACC expanded in 2003. The Pac-12 was looking at becoming a super conference last season by adding Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Utah, and Colorado. Now, however, it seems that the SEC stands to gain the most.

An Oklahoma and Texas A&M defection would signal the end of the Big XII. The conference already saw two of its cornerstone teams defect last season when Colorado left for the Pac-12 and Nebraska departing for the Big Ten. That would leave Texas as the lone alpha in a conference full of mediocrity (no offense Oklahoma State). In that event it would possibly be in Texas' best interest to become an independent much like BYU did this past season.

If the SEC were to add Oklahoma and Texas A&M, they would add two tradition soaked football programs into their ranks and get footholds in two additional states for recruiting. It is doubtful, though, that the SEC would stay pat at expanding to just 14 teams. The ideal number would likely be 16 to create an even number in each division or provide the opportunity to go four 4 team divisions like the NFL uses.

The two other programs the SEC could look at from the Big XII would be Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. The state legislature of Oklahoma would likely pressure any conference looking to add one university to take the other so Oklahoma comes equipped with Oklahoma State. With their football program on the rise it would be advantageous for the SEC to create a stranglehold on that state with the inclusion of both of its top tier universities.

Texas Tech is a provocative piece, albeit not as provocative as Missouri, for the SEC. Not only is the football team coached by SEC veteran Tommy Tuberville but it would also provide the SEC with a tremendous foothold in the state of Texas for recruiting. Much like with the Oklahoma state legislature, the Texas state legislature would like to keep as many prominent Texas universities together and if Texas were to go independent then the SEC may be forced to take Texas Tech to pair with Texas A&M. Virginia Tech, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida State, and Miami have all been as targets for the SEC should they expand to 16 teams and it could very well be one of those teams that get the invite..

The SEC would then face the task of aligning divisions. They could create two 8 teams divisions or borrow an idea from the formerly bloated WAC when they had 16 teams in its ranks. That idea would be to create four 4 team divisions and rotate opponents each year while maintaining one traditional rivalry game from a division. For clarification, this is how it could break down.

The two 8 team divisions would look as such:

East:
Alabama
Auburn
Florida
Georgia
Kentucky
South Carolina
Tennessee
Vanderbilt

West
Arkansas
LSU
Mississippi State
Ole Miss
Oklahoma*
Oklahoma State*
Texas A&M*
Texas Tech*

The other solution would be four 4 team divisions.

West
Oklahoma
Oklahoma State
Texas A&M
Texas Tech

South
Arkansas
LSU
Mississippi State
Ole Miss

Central
Alabama
Auburn
Tennessee
Vanderbilt

East
Florida
Georgia
Kentucky
South Carolina

With these four divisions each team would play an opposing division on a rotating basis. One year the SEC West (Oklahoma, & Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech) would play the SEC South, the following year they would play the SEC Central, and then the SEC North. That would give every team a 7 game schedule in which there would be two additional conference games added just like is done currently.

Traditional rivalries would stay. Alabama would still play LSU every year (since Tennessee would be in their division), Florida would play Tennessee, Arkansas would play Texas A&M, Auburn would play Georgia, and so on and so forth. The other conference game would be rotated every year two years so that teams get a home-and-away series. Oklahoma State would play Mississippi State at home one year, then away the next, and then would play Ole Miss, repeat the process, and so on and so forth.

With Texas being an independent and four former Big XII schools leaving for the higher revenue sharing SEC, the remaining Big XII schools (Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Missouri) would have their choice of what to do next. Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri could all be targets to join the Big Ten. The Mountain West would want to pounce immediately on all five schools. The other possibility would be for those five schools to possibly form their own conference by inviting Houston, SMU, Southern Miss, Tulsa and some of the more competitive members of the Mountain West (Boise State, Air Force, and Nevada)

The last option would be a long shot but if those five schools were able to retain their BCS status (which would be doubtful to due their winning percentages and bowl appearances) then those members from Conference USA and the Mountain West would undoubtedly bolt immediately for automatic qualifying status.

The only hope for the Big XII to remain a whole conference would be to move on without Texas (if they were to become an independent) and invite teams like Boise State, BYU, TCU, or Houston (any of those three with the outside possibility of SMU) to get back up to 12 teams and a conference championship game.

Whatever happens after the demise of the Big XII will drastically change the landscape of college football even more than the most recent changes have. The potential split of the Big East will pale in comparison as to the free-for-all that will happen once the teams from the former Big XII are available for pillaging.

Twitter comments from Tim Brando (@TimBrando).

By 2014 OU and A&M will be in the SEC West. They will be laughed at Nationally for allowing UT to dictate their profit.

It's simple BIG12(or10)fans. Regardless of new Conf. Deal the financial disparity between UT and everyone else is too great.A&M/OU must go.

Okie St. Is also a strong candidate to exit. I was asked about A&M and OU. Agreed that the BIG 12 is in trouble. UT's situation exposed!

Let's be clear. The SEC does not need any of those teams. However if Economics matter then all 3 should want and be out by 14.

Next weeks Big12 Media Days will be entertaining. Dan Beebe's job not easy. A&M, Okie St,OU, and Mizzou toSEC

Those BIG12 teams wont admit it now, but conversations are Underway. The HS decision being put on hold temporarily says all you need to know

There is no way the Administrations of other Big 12 schools can justify the financial disparity between UT and the rest existing this way.

All Bama has to do is stop Chris Rainy and they'll win.

no.... just no. they'll also have to deal with demps and burton, and quite a bit of the time, all three at once. honestly, there's not really a defense in the country that can properly handle those 3 and not create mismatches at other positions. weis' ability to call the game and take advantage of those situations is what i think gives florida the edge. another big part of it is that this game is in the swamp.

i'm prepared to eat crow if uf loses, but if you think alabama is going to have their way with florida like they did with arkansas, you're sorely mistaken.

You're about to see if that statement is true having to play Alabama and LSU in back to back weeks - the two best defenses in the country.

Seriously, what's with Florida fans and their sudden confidence in beating Bama?


So there's a problem with having faith in my team? Oh gosh shoot me for being a fan lol. Seriously, I like our chances in the next two games. Not saying that we'll win both or win one, but you come off like I should say we have NO shot.

On August 28th, 2011 Alabama running back Trent Richardson was pulled over for speeding in Chilton County, Alabama. The Crimson Tide star was going 85 in a 70 and the officer noted that he blamed the "large rims" on his vehicle for the speeding violation.

I didn't even read the rest of the article because I couldn't care less, but his reasoning for speeding is just too good.

It's a good thing the kid knows how to run with a football...

i don't think any reasonable florida fan expected us to look this good this early. now that things are going so well, it's natural that expectations will take a big jump. but honestly, alabama and florida have the same gameplan to stop each other - take away the run and force the qb to beat you. that means the battle is brantley vs mccarron. we still don't really know how improved brantley is (though he looks much better throwing downfield), but you still have to give the edge to him over a freshman qb making his first trip to the swamp.

i'd say bama has a slight defensive edge because of their corners, but what really makes me think uf can win is that i just don't think alabama's linebackers can cover demps, rainey, and burton out of the backfield. to stop that, you have to put defensive backs on them, which creates mismatches at other positions. the difference between this year and last year is charlie weis knows what he is doing, unlike the incompetent **** that was steve addazio.

This is how I see a position-by-position breakdown between the two...

QB - Draw. Neither team has a QB that is really gonna put the team on their back and carry them to victory.
HB - Slight edge to Bama. Trent Richardson and Eddie Lacey are more likely to wear down a defense in this type of game, IMO.
WR - Draw. Both of these teams are really lacking here. I didn't see Florida's WRs make one play in the UT game and the only play I've seen a Bama receiver make all season was on a punt return.
OL - Edge to Bama. I don't think too many would argue this.
DL - Edge to Florida. Bama still has a good d-line though.
LB - Bama.
DB - Bama.
STs - Draw

Depth - Bama
Coaching - Bama

I've got Bama by two TDs.

I respect that. I mean since Bama has proven themselves already in convincing fashion against Arkansas, I can't argue you saying they will win by 2 TD's is reckless. Just watching this UF team and how much more loose our defense is (REALLY have been underrated and will come up big Saturday I believe) I think we can win. It's really going to come down to getting them off the field and getting good field position for us.

sbh15
09-28-2011, 04:28 PM
linebackers are close to equal, imo. florida's group is badly underrated. db's is bama in a landslide, though. depth i would certainly give to bama, but i say coaching is just as close to a draw. kirby smart and nick saban is a nasty duo on defense, but charlie weis is consistently one of the best offensive minds in football, wherever he is. if you think alabam is going to win by 2 td's, you should put a LOT of money on this game because the line is alabama by 4.

i guess we'll see. the offense hasn't really had to show too much because they haven't faced a team that forces them too. i think we'll see a lot of new looks offensively this weekend. in fact, i'd say weis has been saving a hefty chunk of the playbook for this week and next. rainey said the offense ran six plays the whole fau game. uab and uk couldn't have been much different, either.

The dude was average AT BEST last season. If it weren't for Lee LSU would have lost the Tennessee and Florida games. How in their right mind would they even consider Jefferson seeing significant playing time with how well Lee has performed.

I assumed as much...I havent seen that confirmed yet, though.

If it's an ACL, we've lost our top two backs to ACL tears...so now we turn to true Freshman, Brandon Wilds. 6'1 225.

He's got 8 carries for 67 yards and 3 receptions for 21 yards. He looks good, but yeah...there is no replacing Lattimore.

Shon Carson would have been our lead back if he didnt tear his ACL early in the year as well. Eric Baker/Kenny Miles will also be in the backfield mix...I'd hope Wilds would get more of the work load, however. The other two happen to be banged up too. We'll see a lot more of Ellington in the backfield as well.

muschamp has to be using every ounce of restraint he has to not eviscerate durkin publicly and then fire him. last week there was the ****** up punt defense and now FIVE muffed punts. durkin is still employed for recruiting only. the day after nsd, i'd bet his job is gone.

that said, muschamp has to be a scared for his job already. he's in no danger of losing it for a good 2 years, but the way this team is set up, the defense be great while the offense still sucks. by the time the offense is set to succeed, the great defense will have gone to the next level.

As it is, when he comes out after next season, there will be questions about him being a 3 year starter with an ungodly # of carries (I can't imagine if he stays all 4 years), but with two injuries in two years his draft stock has undoubtedly taken a hit here.

It's unfortunate, he's one of my favorite players right now
