Urban Meyer
has moved on. But Florida's penchant for minor arrests has not.

The Orlando Sentinel reported Wednesday that true freshman cornerback Marcus Roberson was arrested and charged with underage alcohol possession Sept. 14, the week of the Gators' game against Tennessee. Roberson was the second Floriday player arrested by the University Police Department that week, following now former Gator linebacker Dee Finley's misdemeanor arrest two days earlier.

Roberson was arrested outside a campus residence hall after police officers reportedly spotted him with a can of Four Loko. He is being represented by Gainesville attorney Huntley Johnson, who (per the Sentinel, in a bit of an understatement) "frequently represents UF athletes." Underage alcohol possession is a misdemeanor charge.

Roberson is the seventh Gator arrested this calendar year and the second to be cited for underage alcohol possession.

Will Muschamp has yet to comment on Roberson's arrest and what punishment, if any, he might receive. Finley was suspended for the Tennessee meeting following his arrest. Roberson has started all seven games for the Gators this season.

Florida has a bye this week but will face Georgia Oct. 29 in Jacksonville, a game for which the reeling Gators will need all hands o nthe proverbial deck. Freshman or not, a suspension for one of the Gators' steadiest performers at one of their thinnest positiosn would be a major blow for their chances in the Cocktail Party.

This arrest is BS and this law is BS; this MIP concept is nothing more than a bureaucratic revenue raising venture.  The vast majority of college presidents feel the drinking age should be 21, not 18, realizing that young immature kids may and will turn to other choices, such as narcotics, etc. How ridiculous is this law that makes it illegal for an 18 year old to drink alcohol in a country where it is legal for that very same 18 year old to die for his country in war?


I agree the law is BS, especially when it comes to those that join the Military but regardless it is still a law.  Why are so many making excuses for a kid who KNOWINGLY broke the law?  Stop making excuses like "I bet you did it" or "lots of college kids so the same thing".   It is not like the kid should go to jail for something so minor but guess what it was still against the law.  If you dont like the rules then go someplace that does not have that rule. 

Why is every missing the point of the story?  The title was not "Kid arrested for having a beer". The title had to do with the number of arrest.  Why dont all you apologist start attack that instead of something the article was not about.  

Oh DONWARREN I was wonder if you were Jess Sayin'?  I was not sure if you were Jess Sayin' so I thought I would ask if you were Jess Sayin'  

Oh Jess Sayin'

DonWarren, why are you so consumed with Buckeye Envy that you have to go out of your way to bash OSU over an issue that does not exist?  Lawbreaking by OSU players has been practically non-existent over the past several years.

More proof that Urban Meyer is a disgrace.  All those thugs and criminals he recruited and they can't even play.  How long will it take Muschanmp & Wess to clean up that cesspool?

Whatever happened to those two basketballers arrested in St. Augustine for breaking into a car?  Was that "handled internally," my favorite university spin?  Or were the charges simply dropped per usual in counties bordering Alachua.

What's up with all the vitriol and race-baiting/hating in this thread?  I "hate" Florida, but seriously....this guy got busted for UNDERAGE ALCOHOL POSSESSION.  To me, that sounds like a crime that MILLIONS of COLLEGE STUDENTS engage in WEEKLY, NOT actions that have any strong relationship to race, upbringing, or being due to a situation that is enabling "rampant criminality"....call it an endorsement if you wish, but this guy just did something that the vast majority of all college kids do at some point.....I hate to have to defend the Florida program in any sort of way, but cripes, let's at least wait for something consequencial to be upset about before we get upset about it.

The majority of black NCAA athletes were raised in trouble homes and broken families.  Most of them still carry their "thug life" mentality to campuses and thus, they get in trouble with the law.  Many of them simply don't care thinking that since they made it to a prominent D-1 school, everything will be handed to them.  The fact of the matter is these individuals waste time and money for other deserving students who could've taken their place and gave their school a good name.  

I'm tired of reading this type of news.  These inner city thugs just don't care about obtaining a good quality education.  Most of them think that they will go pro.  In reality, most will not.  Only, a minute fraction ever make it to the pros.
