Brown kicked off team

By Mike McCall

Defensive tackle Gary Brown was dismissed from the UF football team on Friday after his arrest last weekend on misdemeanor battery charges. UF spokesman Steve McClain released this statement: "Gary Brown has had a history during his time here of not meeting a set of expectations we have for the student athletes in our football program, and therefore he is no longer part of our program."

This isn't really a huge loss for the Gators. Brown was a five-star recruit last year, but he didn't show a ton of promise early on. Moreover, UF just signed a recruiting class being hailed as one of the best ever, especially on the defensive line, so filling his spot shouldn't be too tough. Florida still has one more scholarship to cut to make the limit of 85, so players should be especially careful not to give the coaches an easy decision like Brown did.

A shame for Brown but let this be a warning to all student athletes that consequences will be handed out for stupidity....Go Gators

That is a cosmetic makeover. The root of the problem still exists. We'll soon see another blemish appear.

One has 2 wonder if urbie 'seat out 1 play, or maybe 1 quarter if you draw blood' myers wasn't on his so-called rehab (opps i mean) 'vacation' if this silverback would'nt have been kicked off the team.
So much for your 5 star recruits. another one bites the dust.

When urban was in charge we got to decide what our punishment was.
Please come home soon. brandon..

Brown should head on south to Coral Gables where such behavior is not only tolerated, but encouraged. Can't spell "scum" without "UM"!

Edgar-

That was twenty plus years ago when that type of behavior was tolerated. Sorry to inform you that UFelons have now taken that label away from The "U"!! Thanks!!!!

I understand you're a hater, and that's cool. But the "primate" references are pretty offensive, at least to me and my heritage.

He's a young guy who made a mistake and is now paying for it. He'll live and so will this team.

Good morning lizards.

question for you all...when is "urbie the fruit cake" supposed to leave the mental institution where he is recuperating?...

FZB-you are the fruitcake here, for such insipid and wacky comments.Go back to the asylum and play nice with the other inmates...

Jo-
After your "what else is new about the latest arrest" commentary, I would have imagined you might have had something decent to say about the way in which this was swiftly and surely handled.Do at least show some balance and give UF their due in kicking the bum off the team...

Gary Brown should head down to UM. Although he's no longer a true 5-star recruit, UM could at least say that he was at the time of recruiting - something they don't get many of. The way the ACC is running up and down the field against UM, he could only help with his fat ass in the way.

you guys now own three things in College football. 1)best SEC team, 2)best recruiting class, 3)Fulmer Cup

And what does UM own?

Memories

none of the above and as long as 'student athletes are playing, probably not much more. Just so you know, most other teams at the top have similar issues, maybe it's because the kids really shoudn't be in school. you should be well aware that when UM was the best, off-field were just accepted as part of the opportunity to be the best. I'm sure you went to UF and you're probably smarter than any of these 'student football' players. Just remember when you drilled UM for the same problems.

UM owns the worst coach in the ACC.

The pick king

XVII

Thy pick reign supreme

Well im not going to say anything negative about Brown im sure he is a good kid that he just made a huge mistake and Urban Meyer made the best decision and that was to teach him a life lesson. Sweeping this under the rug like some programs do would not only hurt the student-athlete but it hurts the program i pray that this steers Brown in the right direction and hopefully he will have a successful career elsewhere

Ha jealous Gaytors. We are stacked at QB, LB, OL, CB, and S.

Nice try "D" bag. Your are truly insane.

The "U" has 5 rings, 11 probowlers, and the 30 on 30 ESPN special so we can relive all our memories from the glory years long, long, ago.

Mom is cooking and it's Meatloaf Monday. I can smell it from down here in the basement!

Go 'Canes!

How funny is that ^^^^. A gator fan posting as a cane fan then responding to his own post. Whats wrong kehoe, you cant start trouble on Canes blogs anymore so you trying to stir up trouble over here? The Canes are on your mind 24/7. Get A life, LOSER!

It's gotten so bad in the Gables, the ESPN 30/30 thing is part of their "sell".

Awesome!

Florida still has one more scholarship to cut to make the limit of 85, so players should be especially careful not to give the coaches an easy decision like Brown did.

Its gotten so bad in gainesville that they are getting under the scholarship limit by way of INCACERATION. It's also funny how losing the #2 rated 5* D tackle in the country last year is now not A big loss.

It's gotten so bad in gainesville that they have to get under the scholarship limit by way of INCARCERATION. It's funny that now it is no big deal the gators lost last years #2 rated 5* D tackle in the country.

I thought it ate my post ^^^^^.

Isnt Jenkins awaiting a court case, How come he wasnt booted off the team?? thats right he doest suck. LMAO!! This must be the date the gators will get under the limit.

I'm glad you caught that "The U"!

The moron is logging in and out with my screen name as well! What a TOOL!

As I said before "D" Bag, I like to come over here when the "circus is in town"! But the arrest thing is not even fun to joke about anymore. It's gotten so bad at UF that the blog moderator has thrown up his hands and is making light of it. At least they kicked the kid off the team.

Go 'canes!

I can smell A kehoe A mile away!

It's getting so bad in the Gables, more canes post here then Gators. Everyone on here is a "Kehoe". It's like a bad acid trip canes...hold on because this trip won't be over for you guys for a loooooong time.

Thats because gator nation has its head in the sand about the state of the program, and I am not talking about wins and loses. When jo sheds any negative light on the program fans ignore the blog for the most part or try to spin it in another direction. Coach quits, then comes back, then takes A leave, players getting arrested, kicked off the team, assistants leaving in droves. Who would'ent want to tune in to all this drama. This place is better than A episode of Tool Academy. " No pun intended".

Laaaaaaaaaaaaaame!

"The U", my friend, you have a point. They don't see whats coming. Our coach said we have to "get tougher" and we will!

I heard about this Tool Academy, my mom said it would do me some good. How do you apply?

Go canes!

Posted by: The []_[] | February 22, 2010 at 02:31 PM

typical nonsense from Sarasota SCUMBAG.

The Gators own your every waking thought.
You go to bed thinking about the Gators and []__[] wake up thinking about the Gators.

Get a coach and win a sorry ACC title and get back to us envy boy.

Sorry to tell ya but I am not sota. It dosent really matter either way if you think that I am. Why do you want us to get a coach? If Randy is so bad of a coach as A jock sniffing gator I would think you would want him there as long as possible. Truth be told you are scared to death of what he is building down at Miami. Bash all you want but he has improved the team by leaps and bounds since he took over and runs the program with integrity.

LOOKS LIKE OREGON ISN'T CONCEDING THE TITTLE OF THUG U TO THE gaTOR's.

Posted by: Sarasota 'cane | February 22, 2010 at 04:03 PM

Apply you say? When you post under a fake name then respond to your fake post you dont need to apply. You my friend are A TOOL!

espn pti is discussing GAtors 30 arrests and oregon's arrests. OH OH.
There coming...

The gator program will implode within three years. Mark it down because it will happen. It happens to every team once they peak. You dont stay at the top forever. Not that its A bad thing but it only lasts so long. Your program is in turmoil and you cant see the forest for the trees. It was A good run but it is OVER!

What the hell are U building down here? You have coach that 50% of the fan base hates. You have empty "Stadium Saturdays". You have a president that is ok with mediocrity. You have alumni like W. Sapp and B Blades calling Randy out. You haven't sniffed an ACC title let alone a BCS game. The only thing your building are vacation packages for recruits who want to visit SoBe on da U's dime. Oh and I just read the cane blog and the ovewhelming feeling is that 2011 maybe da u's year. You and your cohorts are like the '72 'fins...living in the past.

Its the same as its always been with some cane fans. Fickle doesent even begin to do it justice. They flew A banner over the OB calling for Butch to be fired in 1998. We all know how that turned out. Dont we!

Posted by: Not fake | February 22, 2010 at 06:49 PM

50% of cane fans are fairweather fans.

We have never sold out all our games.

We have never had the best weight room.

on the other hand the gators have only beat us once in 27 years. WE have 5 > 3 in ships, and the gators have never gone undefeated while we have done it 3 times. It kind of stings does'ent it?

Not as much as getting the shaaats after buying lizard on a stick outside of that palace you guys used to play home games in.

I watch yo ca fo twenny dolla!

If a game is played and no one sees it, was it even played at all?

"….Redshirt freshman Shayon Green has never played a down of college football, but he enters spring practice as the team’s starting middle linebacker."

He didn't EARN it. He got their by default because Randy wouldn't know what depth wasif it punched him in the nose. McCarthy is symbic of UM's LB's, a scrub.

Go 'canes.

7-5

Miami Hurricanes --- the Canada of football. Who cares?

Canes, eh?

'PTI' was talkin about ur 30 arrests. Heard Sports illustrated is in town doin an expose on the rampant lawlessness in GAniesville.
And if your reporters ever did any reporting, instead of cheerleading, they would have a story on your renegade program.

go canes?? >>>>

Posted by: The []__[] | February 22, 2010 at 08:43 PM

If your going to play copy cat at least get the []_[] right.

I'd trade in our soft secondary guys for some renegades that actually bring it and win.

Our LB's are just like Pilsbury SOFT BATCH.

Hey fake []__[], get off my []__[] jakazzz.

Don't copy me then tell me not to copy you loser.

Shalaka Laka

[]_ _[]

can we all just agree that......

No arrests in gainesville this morning. You guys may be turning this thing around. Somthing needs to happen pretty quick though or jo wont have anything to write about.

Can we all juat agree that......

Redshirt freshman middle linebacker, 3 new starters on oline, no backup QB with experience, 2 tough road games early on, solid home field advantage with the crowd noise, and we are "getting tougher" as this year as da U's war cry as opposed to spongebob last season.

Sounds like you can hold up the BCS trophy now! Or is 2011 our year b/c we are young, can't play in the rain or cold, we didnt bring SWAGGER, we gots 11 probowlers, we only recruit what we need, and "you'll never know how much this helps us"

Hello, anybody there? Hello?

Prozack junkie coach, third D coordinator in A month, Thin receiving corps, no eye gouging middle linebacker, completely retooled defense.

Sounds like ALABAMA owns you punks again this year. But hey, you do have A good jump on the fulmer cup for 2010.

Hello, anybody there? Hello?

Yes, Alabama is a little better then UNC and Clemson.

Yes, Alabama is a little better then UNC and Clemson.

Hilarious! Silly cane fans. Go win that sorry conference with your beatup pencil thin pick machine.

Yes, Alabama is a little better then UNC and Clemson.

Posted by: UM Update | February 23, 2010 at 10:52 AM


Alabama is A lot better than florida.

Gators lost in a championship game, something the canes will only play in on 30/30.

could the u even sniff the jock straps of Alabama and UF?

Dumb, dumb, dumb, cane fans. We beat the snot out of you goons too in the '93 Suger Bowl by almost the same score. And by the way, it could have been worse but we were too busy laughing at you to keep upping the score....

It was the 93 SUGAR Bowl Gene. Thank god they put tou out to pasture when they did.

could the u even sniff the jock straps of Alabama and UF?

Posted by: U watching from the stands | February 23, 2010 at 11:48 AM

The U is not into sniffing jocks. But hey, If thats your thing.

Wasn't that the game George Teague ran down Lamar Thomas like a dog on nat'l T.V. LMAO! Then he sat on the bench with a towel over his head like a big baby.

Is the "t" in "you" silent?

Right...they're washing them, cause they sure ain't playing any championship games!

Funny you would bring up A player crying on the sidelines. At least Lamar coverd his head with A towel unlike Timmy "cry me A river" Tebow.

The best part of all this crap is its not on the Cane blogs anymore.

Lamar Thomas -- quintessential canes loser.

Isn't that redundant?

Scholarship reduction by INCARCERATION!

Somebody needs to get arrested so we can get A new blog.

Based on the shlacking bama gave u guys, u can't hang with them either. And oh boy will this years game be even sweeter.

I can hear your knees clacking from here.

Back to reality silly gator.

Just another year in the SEC. Great teams year-in, year-out.

That "clacking" you hear is from the wheels falling off u and your basketball conference.

Good thing Teabag left when he did. They now have a reliable test for HGH

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=4938135

btw, have fun watching another gator loser get eaten up in the NFL...the recruits will eventually figure it out

5>3 ALWAYS!!!

I was at the game versus Wisconsin and it was heartbreaking to see us get man handled. Trust me I like to get man handled from time to time but this wasn't the right time.

I see us "getting tougher" and winning 6-7 more NCs.

Ahh the life in the basement.

Go 'canes!

Remember when the canes were good and they didn't care about other teams' current and former players, coaches, stadiums, fans, campus, city, police force, student body, traffic lights, weather, culture, etc.

Yeah, I can't either....

>Remember when the GAtors had players DRAFTED instead of ARRESTED.
>Remember when we looked at times in the 40 instead of time in jail..
>Remember when the GAtors had a all-pro in the NFL with all thier 4-5 star athletes...
>Remember when the GAtors had an undefeated season....
>Remember when GAtors didn't have Huntley on speed dial.....

ME NEITHER..

Remember when we used to live in a fetid trailer park in the middle of a toxic swamp...oh yeah, we still do

Yeah, baby! Go Gatas. Crackas rule!

Gator envy, Mel, you got Gator envy. The only cure is to quit your construction job, move out of Mom's house and become a Gator-head.

LOL - Gator envy, it's contagious and it's sweeping through the Gables.

I remember Randall Hill shootin the gun. Uncle Luke passing out bounties and the pell grant money flowing...Ahhh those were the days.

Go 'canes!

And the Administration is so proud they ran Corben off campus when he showed up with cameras.

I remember 32 arrests under the current gator regime. Read the current blog for gods sake. Brown kicked off team for getting ARRESTED!

UF has become A side show freak. Pay A dollar and look behind the curtain you will see Urban in A strait jacket foaming at the mouth.

Hmmmm, this is worse than I thought. The Gator envy is spreading like wildfire and these canes are stating the obvious over and over again. They either need to get a life or start winning again. Both tall orders!

While the Hurricanes continue to underwhelm their sparse crowds and fair weather fans!

Don't argue with a fool, 'cause a spectator won't know the difference.

Now OTL was talking about college arrests today on ESPN, PTI yesterday.
There closing in, GAtors.
It's only time now before the investigations start and urbien (rhythms with ambien) myers wants to spend 'more time' with the family (Just like pete carroll, run from the posse)...

Extra credit for the Fee Waybill SN.

Fee Waybil? No F'in WAY !

Oh look, delusional canefan still dreams about an "investigation." Throwing a sandwich can only mean violations.

Canes are going down the tubes.

Gators on probation? A Hurricane fan's wet dream! We're....

The totally envious cane troll has been yambering on for months and months about some imaginary investigation.

Truly sad.

1 win against the U in 24 years lamo and 1-4 this decade, less rings, records,and pros which is the pinacle of the sport. And still ufelons hav not gone undefeated and The U has played in at least 2 title games in each of last three decades NOT ancient history. if it is so is your 96 Ufelons title so dnt bring it up if our 2001 title 2002 tiltle (everyone knows who really won, flag was thrown literally 4.6 seconds after play was over refs wanted the F@&keyes to win), can't be brought up. The gaytors still haven't sniffed the heights Miami reached Fear the Future And Envy Our Past lol Wannabees we did it first and changed the game forever 8=====D choke on it Sarasota cane is a poser and everyone knows it. U ain't fooln anyone jackass

http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/sports_college/2010/02/attendance-at-football-games-slightly-down-in-2009.html

UM aint even in the top 30. Even with completely fake numbers.

U haven't changed squat you ancient clown. Everyone laughs at U. U are irrelevant. Keep citing your history book clown.
