After reading the article its, to me, not as bad as it sounded. Assuming the facts are correct, he did not drive the car. Stupid to drink too much and then go sleep in the car but that's a lot different had he actually driven the car.

By that ESPN Power Rankings....  Buckeyes #2 in the Coaches Poll though.

That Florida / Michigan game is also very attractive.

Looking forward to an opening Saturday triple-header:  Terps @ Texas at noon (may have a backup game just in case things don't go well), Michigan-Florida at 3:30, then 'Bama-Fl. St.  Pretty good opening weekend.

Not many backup options in that time slot unfortunately. Cal @ UNC is the only other Power 5 matchup, but that doesn't get my juices flowing, and I think the Tar Heels will win comfortably. Wyoming @ Iowa could be interesting. Might be the best chance to get a look at Josh Allen this season.

ESPN: Florida suspends 7 for opener vs Michigan

 

Florida has suspended seven players for its season-opener against Michigan on Sept. 2 (3:30 ET on ABC) -- including its top playmaker, wide receiver Antonio Callaway -- for making improper charges on their university student IDs at the school bookstore and then selling those items for cash, university officials confirmed to ESPN Sunday.

 
The others are offensive lineman Kadeem Telfort, linebackers James Houston and Ventrell Miller and defensive linemen Jordan Smith, Richerd Desir-Jones and Keivonnis Davis.

 

 

Gator-Hater McNulty must be smiling.

Only one starter. But hurts their depth for that game for sure.

Still prolly taking the Gators to win though.
