Florida Gators cornerback Janoris Jenkins to wear coveted No.1 jersey

HOOVER, Ala. -- Florida Gators cornerback Janoris Jenkins will wear the number one on his jersey this season, according to the University of Florida's sports information department.

Tazor Jenkins deserves that number one jersey for all he's done for society.

lol...jenkins is a class act

LMFAO

Pure class. Just like Urban. I mean that man turned a troubled young person like Percy Harvin and turned him into a teammate hitting, pot smoking, entourage sporting, steroid taking, migraine having (right) superstar. Now he'll do the same for Jenkins....

You having fun? Pretty sad state when this is what you have to do to try to engage in "discourse" with Florida fans regarding football.

Didn't you guys used to b the U?

Now more like the Ewe.

Miami is a small team,with a small fan base playing in too large a stadium.

Miami is closer to 1974 than it is to 2001.

miami as a team with 5 national titles...

how many do U have in over 100 years?
thats what i thought beyotch

Good for you that three of those were in your own stadium. Otherwise woul've been more like '86 Penn State, '92 Alabama, '02 Ohio State.

I'm glad you're so attached to your (ancient) history. Because the Ewe doesn't have much of a future.

I almost feel bad for you, because you know that's the truth.

U = Ewe

This is how you should treat troubled players before it spoils your program!
