Receiver Paul Wilson advised to end career

GAINESVILLE -- Florida Gators receiver Paul Wilson recently broke his foot during preseason football practice and has been advised by team doctors to end his football career, according to UF coach Urban Meyer.

Pwilson Meyer said on Friday that UF will honor Wilson's scholarship. Florida is in the process of filing a medical hardship waiver on behalf of Wilson [PICTURED], according to a team spokesman. Wilson, a redshirt sophomore from Lakeland, broke the same foot last September and had surgery.

"He probably won't play football again," Meyer said. "I was counting on him for special teams. He's had some tough injuries. He's had the wrist issue. He's had a couple leg issues. He's a great kid."

A member of the Lakeland Dreadnaughts 2006 national championship football team, Wilson re-broke his foot during non-contact drills, according to Meyer.

"The foot that broke, re-broke because of what receivers are asked to do, which is plant and push off," Meyer said. "He has been advised not to play football. We wish him all the best and obviously we're going to pay for his school. That's real tough on him because he wanted to play.

"You hate to say it like this, but it's true. There are certain kids you just like better than others," Meyer said. "You don't want to say that, but it's true. The guys who put in the hard work, go to class, live right -- all the things Paul Wilson does -- a guy like that deserves to live his dream."

OTHER INJURY UPDATES
Meyer said on Friday that defensive end Justin Trattou (ankle) and receiver Carl Moore (back) are almost ready to begin practicing. Cornerback Jeremy Brown (back) returned to practice on Friday but was limited. Running back Emmanuel Moody (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday but is also limited.

It's a shame that this happened to a kid who waqs apparently doing all the right things but at least UF is honoring his scholarship.

These are always fun! "Art Kehoe" plotting his revenge against UM with "Don Soldinger"! "14and0" and Co. take delusion to a whole new level.

The bomber is fully fueled and the bombs are rolling across the tarmac toward the craft. It's gonna be messy canefan.

This weekend will be a ball Soldy.

Vegas has U at 7-1/2 wins. With all your INCREDIBLE DEPTH vegas only has U chumps one win better. I guess they missed that Beanpole doesn't have a shot at 12 starts. Or maybe they are accounting for that and know that Cook will be an upgrade over weakarm Jacory Curl.

Jacory curl? That's just funny

This was a show stopper! There was a picture of a UM fan's newborn daughter that Manny posted on the UM blog, and this was the UF "fan"atics response!

You're right "14", most of the racist people I know would find that funny as well!

Really unfortunate for him. Can only hope for the best.

Also really unfortunate the Miami Herald has no control over their blogs.

jo, you don't have to monitor anything. You have someone in the IT department of your conglomerate newspaper company BAN the IP ADDRESS(es) of the user from the comment section. It's easy, the Post as done it, the Sentinel has done it, the Herald can do it, too.

And spam does not fall under freedom of speech. And what is being done is spam, not speech.

Agreed, Adam. Jo isn't alone though. Manny has refused to address it as well. Becuase of this you have these jackasses ruining both ofthese blogs, which, NEWSFLASH Jo, is there for the readers of these blogs to interact with discussions about the topic at hand. The comment section is vital to a blog.

What is happening is disorderly and ignoring it is not a smart approach to take. With "14-0" and "Daddy" monopolizing the blog with their garbage, most of your readers will be gone very soon.

ricky ((cough::sarasota 'cane in drag::cough))

OK, so I've run searches on the IP addresses of everyone on this blog. The same guys/gals who are spamming the blog also, at times, leave thoughtful comments under different handles. I'm not banning anyone (and I'm not "outing" anyone .. yet). Just grow up people, please. For the love of all things holy, I'm busy here working on our football preview section. I don't have time for this nonsense.

adam S. you don't like it. well, tell your homie 14-0 to stay off of miami's blogs with his bullshyt. it's really that simple. you have only been going through this for a couple of weeks. miami fans have been dealing with 14-0 and his rants for a year now and not only on the herald's blog. he has been on the sun sentinel and the palm beach post. do you not think that is a little strange.

You guys have been dealing with it for 2-3 days, we've had "14" for almost 2 years! We are not going to enjoy all this "fun" by ourselves this year! You'll be right there with us!

My commitment to you all (that's hard to say with a straight face!) is that I will never direct any negative posts at the Gator Nation on the Gator Clause site. I will simply forward the thoughts and wisdom of a rabid Gator "fan"atic who seems to have forgotten the url to this site! Enjoy!

P.S. The guy is over fifty years old! Go figure!

HE'S ALL YOURS UF!

Look at the future coke addict preemy baby.

Sorry about the double post!

Sorry about the double post!

jo, spamming should automatically equal banning. Period. The "thoughtful comments" that they leave under different names would be replaced by the thoughtful comments of the DOZENS of readers you have who DON'T comment because of the SPAM and BS.

I'm trying to help YOU and the Herald here. When there are threads that people can talk back and forth on, the blog is more enjoyable and YOU get more hits. When the comments sections are filled with SPAM, it turns people off.

I'm glad you checked the IPs and have an idea of what's what. Next step is doing something about it. Just my opinion, and I'm just trying to help YOU.

Just to give a comparison: saying you won't ban someone who spams just because they sometimes leave relevant comments is like saying you shouldn't put a guy in jail who beats his wife just because he takes her out for dinner once a week.

I agree with you, but The Herald will not do anything. Neither will the Sun-Sentinel, or the Palm Beach Post.

Do you read that crap? One of your Gator Clause bloggers is posting 90% of it! This has been a slow week, there are usually 2-3 times more posts as there has been this week.

Actually, the Orlando Sentinel moderates its Florida Gators blog because of you or whoever was doing similar things over there.

You are such a freaking baby. It doesn't matter what is happening on your crappy Canes blog. I am talking about THIS one. If you want the supposed person who is doing it over there to stop, talk to the writer of THAT blog.

Jo runs THIS blog, which is why I am talking to him about how to get rid of you. Copying/pasting what he does over there onto this blog is simply pathetic on your end. Grow up.

I'm not asking for your permission or your approval. When he stops, I'll stop. I'm sure everyone else will as well.

Hmmm ...

So because Manny does not have the sack to ban someone after what you claim to be amounts to TWO years of abuse, you have taken it upon yourself to make sure the other blogs receive equally disruptive/destructive treatment in order to have us coerce soemone whom we don't even know to stop doing whatever he's doing over there? Are you serious? You sound like a cyber terrorist, an immature one at that.

Your endeavors to clean up the miami blog should be directed at Manny, not at this board.

Jo, I've not been coming onto this site with near the frequency I typically do because of this crap. Given the impending football season wherein the team you cover is the unanimous preseason number one, it would behoove you to take the steps necessary to make sure this board can be enjoyed by your readers during the season, Gator fans who care what you have to say and whom value the interaction which usually exists here between fellow Gator fans as well as opposing fans whom do not abuse the privilege of posting here.

Please don't tell me you're falling back on some romatic journalitic notion of freedom of speech to avoid banning . Just because one can usually say what one wishes to say does not protect that speaker/poster from the ramifications of their speech's content.

I bet if this putz was throwing around the nuclear device known as the "N Word," you'd ban his ass in a hearbeat.

Ban him, then when he sends you an email apologizing for his unprovoked attempts to sabotage your blog, reinstate him. He acts like a dipshit again, ban him again.

Quite simple.

Great post, Rico. Thank you. Jo, are you listening to what your readers want? Great points made in that last post.

To the post above, by "everyone else" do you mean all of your various monikers, Mr. Split-Personality Disorder? Instead of being the bigger man and trying to get this Manny person to fix his blog, you've decided to try to trash another blog - how immature and childish. As I've said numerous times - grow up.

yet). Just grow up people, please. For the love of all things holy, I'm busy here working on our football preview section. I don't have time for this nonsense.

Amen ...
