Janoris breaks the golden silence of spring


"Silence is Golden."  You see the statement before motion picture movies at the theatre.  For college football teams - especially those who look primed to make a serious championship run, silence truly is a welcome sound. For it means that your team is not in the news during the spring and summer months, a time when newsmakers always do so for the wrong reasons.

We were thinking that only injury could derail the 2009 version of the Gator train, but we forgot about idiocy. You know - fighting in downtown Gainesville and not stopping when ordered by the police to do so.  Things like getting tased and then briefly running from the police.....all bad and all stupid.

Janoris Jenkins is the latest Gator to have a mugshot on file with the GPD. As  usual, the team is "waiting on the results of the investigation." At worst, Jenkins will miss some games (likely the first 2 games against our typical patsy opponents and then return for Tennessee). Since he has no previous record, he will like use the deferred prosecution option and have to complete some community service.  At best, Meyer will "handle it internally" whatever that means, and we will be called a bunch of thugs by our rivals.  Whatever the outcome, it is a black eye for the UF football team.  Let's hope that somehow, this is the only incident of the summer.

It must be difficult to sleep at night when you are a head football coach of 18-22 year olds who are in a place like Gainesville with all kinds of time on their hands for the summer.

Please be kind and use good grammar.
