Carlos Dunlap is back, but should he be?

GAINESVILLE -- Junior defensive Carlos Dunlap was recently reinstated to the football team and UF coach Urban Meyer said on Friday that Dunlap will likley be allowed to play in the Sugar Bowl.

The decision came down from UF president Bernie Machen and UF athletics director Jeremy Foley. Considering UF's strick policy regarding students who are arrested for DUI, it seems a little odd that Dunlap is being allowed to play. After all, some UF students have been expelled after being convicted of DUI. Of course, Dunlap will be long gone after the Sugar Bowl and his status as a UF student will matter to no one.

Meyer said that Machen and Foley decided Dunlap could play in the BCS bowl because Dunlap's alleged DUI was his first mistake. Dunlap was found by Gainesville police at traffic light asleep behind the steering wheel of his car around 3:30 a.m. a few days before UF's biggest game of the season.

Should Dunlap be allowed to represent UF in the Sugar Bowl? If Dunlap had taken his foot of the brake while sleeping at the traffic light (the car was in drive), drifted into the intersection and killed a few people, would he still be allowed to play? Wonder what M.A.D.D. thinks? Maybe I'm just being an overly critical, self-righteous sports writer.

wow Miami's football coach is predisposed to be addicted to crack cocaine and contract the AIDS virus

That they do....3rd loss in a row to some punk JV team. How the hell did they get ranked anyway? What a frickin joke! Turds suck Kehoe's privates! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

BTW - that HalfTimeBreakdown dude is one funny SOB.....I love that guy cuz he's busting Turd balls right & left. Randy needs to sign you up bro'.

Sucks is an understatement...more like PATHETIC. Losing to 3 JV teams in a row now...who the hell ranked these losers in the first place? Is it just because Eddie Munster coaches them or are they expecting Dunlap to buy beers for everyone at halftime?

HalfTime Beatdown is THE MAN. He's crushing the Turds worse than the Canes crush them! You are one funny dude...rock on baby!

Karma is taking hold...it seems everyone and their mother in Alabama owns the gator programs.

REALLY suck...REALLY....BIG time

A-ROD AT PRACTICE

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez worked out at Greentree Field on Tuesday and watched Miami practice.

``Alex works out here all the time in the offseason,'' coach Randy Shannon said. ``We treat Alex as a normal person. I mean, everybody on the team knows him. It's not like he has to address [anyone]. He's just one of the family.''

I THOUGHT I WAS CANESRULE?

Go 'canes!

Hey Kehoe, Wakey wakey hand off snakey. Word on the street is your mom is being "detained" after A little missunderstanding at work last night so you will have to make your pop tarts by yourself this morning. Try not to burn the trailer down.

Holy shyt gaytor fans do yourselves A favor and back out of all future sporting events involving the state of Alabama. First your football team gets curbed stomped and now your basketball team gets beat by A directional school from that state. I would suggest contacting Bernie "Bumpercars" Machen immediately before theres any more bloodshed.
