GAINESVILLE -- The wounds are still fresh, so this question might sting: How will Florida Gators defensive end Carlos Dunlap be remembered?
Dunlap was named a first-team All-SEC defensive end on Monday, less than a week after being arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol. Did Dunlap deserve the honor even though he was suspended for the SEC championship game?
Will Dunlap's arrest influence his decision to either return to school or go pro? I'm sure there are some strong opinions on this subject, so let's hear them.
My take on the matter: Everyone makes mistakes. How you deal with those mistakes and learn from them ultimately define your character. My opinion: Dunlap can still salvage his reputation as a Gator if he returns to school and sets a positive example from this point forward.
