Chris Rainey kicked off Florida Gators team following felony stalking charge

RaineyTV

PICTURED: University of Florida football player Chris Rainey appeared in Alachua County court on Tuesday via closed circuit TV from the Alachua County jail. Rainey was arrested for felony stalking early Tuesday morning and later released on his own recognizance by an Alachua County judge.

GAINESVILLE -- Slot receiver Chris Rainey has been kicked off the University of Florida football team, according to offensive coordinator Steve Addazio. Rainey was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with a third-degree felony for aggravated stalking after he sent a woman a text message that read, "Time to Die B---- u and ur???".

Rainey "Chris Rainey is not a part of our team right now," Addazio said on Tuesday. "And that's all I really have to say on that."

Gainesville police booked the redshirt junior slot receiver at 3:27 a.m. on Tuesday. Rainey appeared in court later Tuesday morning and was released on his own recognizance by an Alachua County judge. 

Rainey suffered a concussion in last Saturday's 38-14 victory against the University of South Florida. He sat out half of the game but Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer said on Monday that he expected Rainey to be available for this Saturday's game against the Tennessee Volunteers. Rainey's back-up is true freshman slot receiver Robert Clark of West Palm Beach Dwyer.

Game over Chris! Unacceptable in any circumstance and really stupid. He will be thrown off the team immediately.


Now let the crap storm of the Cane haters commence.

Anything to get their minds off of Wandy, J21 and the debacle last saturday. Remember clowns, know matter how many gators get arrested, it never changes the fact that you guys got waxed and will continue to get waxed week in and week out.

Game over????? What????? He will be back ASAP! Coach needs him and we need him!

Straight to bed without dinner....

This is not acceptable. When is Urban going to make these players accountable for their actions? The "one game suspension" route is not working.

j100? Oh I get it. Jailed 100.

Damn, these guys get arrested for the dumbest stuff. Hopefully he gets help as this is not good behavior for the future.


Posted by: It will be J100 by season end... | September 14, 2010.

know matter how many gators get arrested?

Stupid is as stupid does like giving Wandy a contract extension?

Another Lizard arrested, yawn...

nothing changes, nice program you're running there Urbie...

As I said, anything to take their feeble minds off of the debacle last saturday. No matter how hard you try, you can't erase the fact that you guys were out played and out coached by a team that the SEC owns in NC games.

lol...no matter he will be starting next week...nice program U guys have there in Canesville

Spend your ENTIRE day here clownsrule.

29 and counting? We talkin' bout Japicky's INT count at the end of the season? Guy was floating balls like it was a pick-up game @ OSU. What a turd.

Cue the idiot loser Canes. BTW, this is not aggravated stalking. There won't be a felony charge if any in this case.

I do hope Meyer sends a statement to the players that this is getting ridiculous.

That's it?

This blog has been updated.

Typical Gatard felony garbage. Those thugs spend more time in Alachua county lockup than in the library. Nike patterned the combat unis after the Alachua jumpsuit.

You are such garbage, UFelony. You can't get past it. Deflect all the attention you want to the Canes and Noles, but the fact remains you and your players are garbage and will be exposed, again, in Knoxville.

TRASH.....TRASH.....TRASH....TRASH...

I think it's pretty safe to write off this season. Winning the ACC (which we probably won't) wouldn't be much of an accomplishment this year given the quality of the conference. Knowing RS will be head coach, there are still no alternatives to Jacory at QB and we still can't put any pressure on opposing QB's gives me a pretty clear picture of what to expect the rest of this year: mediocrity. 8-4 or 7-5 playing in a weak conference.

Call that a bandwagon if you want. I prefer to think of it as being realistic about what to expect the rest of this year and hoping these problems eventually get resolved, starting with a new head coach. Either way, I know I am a "true fan".

.

Finally, a Cane fan that "GETS IT" ...

Is that the gators new Nike pro combat uni? White with green stripes.

lack of PHYSICAL evidence ... charges dropped, case dismissed.

you should get Greg Evans to look into the arrests canesrule.

Here come Huntley Johnson.

Power of the P

It's a crime against a woman. He's gone, and rightfully so.

Not so fast Gordon, trust me as bad as the offense is for the gators right now. they will do anything to keep him. If this girl is not a UF student it will go away.

If she is a student he is gone.
If you are the girls father and she goes to UF on your money. Daddy is talking to the Prez right now and lawsuit is in the conversation

a lawsuit over a text message?

Ur a clown

Greg evans filled your head with nonsense boy.

stick to fantasy journalism, blow out apologies, and gay bashing. It's what u do best clown

Lawsuit might sound far fetched but people have sued for crazier stuff. But the turning the cheek on all these thugs and not discipline
should be accounted

and yet another ID by canesrule

canesrule = the scum is in gainesville

NICE

What else is new? Another Gator fingerprinted and on the criminal court docket.

And the beat goes on.....

AS I said before and has now been confirmed, Chris Rainey is no longer part of this team.

Time for Dubose to step up.

"In the news tonight, Rush Limbaugh is a conservative, George Michael is gay, and another Gatard trash criminal is arrested."

cliche.

Posted by: GameCock in SoFla

You forgot, Jacory threw another INT.

You forgot, Randy still blows

GameCock in SoFla, stop coming on here and acting like the Gamecocks are the best team in the SEC. Because their not.

THE QUESTION THAT NEEDS 2 B INVESTIGATED IS WHO PAYS 4 HIS REPRESENTATION.
& IT BETTER NOT B SCHOOL FUNDS THAT R SORELY NEEDED ELSE WHERE THEN 2 BAIL OUT SOME THUG...

LOL! Smells like Angry Canes guy to me! Hey buddy, got the fire extinguisher queued up outside the can? I'm sure you do! Runnin' through the smoke after giving yourself a "hand" is your specialty!

Posted by: MonsterMuckyWuck! | September 14, 2010 at 02:21 PM

Not the best team in the SEC. The best team in the SEC east.

Posted by: 305_GAtor

Call Greg Evans to investigate it.

Another Gator arrested?? Make him sit our a series or 2, Urban. That will teach him a lesson! What a joke!

GO CANES!

Go Cocks.........

Hey guys, I cracked open the time capsule down the street the other day and read the sports page ...they couldn't get enough of the 'Noles 10 years ago! Where'd all those 'Noles fans go? You couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting one back then! Now, all that 'Noles gear is on the discount shelf!

First you were riding Bama's nutsak. Now you have spent the last four days gumming tOSU and their classy kneel down. And Now you're going to jump on Spurrier's apple bag? U spineless gutless chump.

Get a QB and a Coach and check back irrelevant loser.

Typical insufferable Cane! Everything and everyone else is a "dumpster fire". Hey pal, you just got torched on national T.V. in your "championship year"!

LOL --- Lemme guess your also a Vols fan, Bama fan, Kentucky fan, UGA fan....

GameCock in SoFla, don't you mean 2nd best in the east. No way you boys come down to the Swamp and beat us. You chickens belong in the ACC not the SEC. Or at least on dinner plate. lol

hype and smack cane fan talking about getting exposed.

INSTANT CLASSIC

your unqualified coach got smacked down by sweater vest and you describe it as a great showing by your sorry canes.

turds taste like turkey in your delusional world

This just in: No arrests in Coral Gables, hence the same crappy players will be starting this week against the Big East power Pitt panthers.

This blog post has been updated again.

-jo-

And I thought we had problems. I see you boys at UF keep racking up the arrests. Only a Gator football player could text a woman and tell her that its time to die. A real class act you guys have there in Rainey. Let me guess, as soon as his headache is better he will be back on the field and that will be called his suspension. Did Frankie and Matt come pick him up from prison?

This just in: stick a fork in the canes. After getting crushed by sweater vest, there are ZERO ranked opponents left on their schedule.

you're desperate clownsrule.

Rocky Top???? Now you're on the Vols nuts.

Another one bites the dust.

I am a Vols fan. I came over here to goof on you morons for having such a classy player that is willing to tell a woman that its her time to die. We know Oscar isnt going to do a thing to Rainey. He will use the concussion as a suspension. Enjoy loss 1 this coming Saturday Gator boys

Can we beat a ranked opponent?

Posted by: Rocky Top

Sure you are.

Typical Gator

give it up canesrule, everyone knows they don't have no 'puters in TN.

Jordan Futch: "dis my last tweet see yal in da spring."

Tru dat bidtch

dis my last tweet

After receiving money from an undisclosed Bull Gator the female in question has asked that the charges be dropped. Rainey apologized by saying "my bad" and Coach Urban Meyer said he would have to look at game films to see if the Gators coul...d suspend Rainey at this time. When asked about suspension Meyer stated " we are looking at s...uspending Rainey for the Vanderbilt Game and Possibly the App.State game later in the year.

Shapiro looms in the shadows. It will be the bitter end of this whole hyped up smack talking crappy program.

Rainey is a muerto. As a UF alumni who lives in Miami, this kind of crap only feeds the fire that Urban Meyer has no control, outside of football, with his players. Authoritarian, unfortunately, far from it. This is a good start, though. He needed to be booted from the team. Hopefully, not only will it send a message to the rest of the squad, someone will pick up the slack...it wasn't like he was doing much, anyways. What happened to this turd? Aside from that, 'U' losers who think we are losing to Tennessee this weekend have been smoking the fire; worry about Pitt which has a much better chance of winning against 'U' than 'U' do against them.

UF wont suspend Rainey. I wouldnt be shocked if Oscar had the girl arrested for having a cell phone for him to send a text to.
GO VOLS

Stalk'em Urban

From a legal standpoint, however, what are the chances that this charge gets dropped from a Felony to a Misdemeanor? Or gets dropped all together? Is his expulsion from the team permanent?

UF will leave Rocky Top with a 2-1 record. YOU WILL NOT BEAT US. Even if you guys can keep Rainey from killing a woman before Saturday you still have no chance.

Rainey off the team, Urban fools his scum fans again. Frankie Hammond is already back on the team.
His scholarship was revoked 2 months ago???
You idiots deserve whats coming.

In other news, Jacory Harris wore some Buffalo Bills overalls in preparation for his next game.

Randy Shannon = Ron Zook without the emotion.

Jacory Harris = Ryan Leaf without the talent.

Canes are back again!!!!

BAWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

ON a positive note:


Jeff Demps, only Gator athlete to win national titles in 2 sports, made his 2nd trip to the White House MON as part of UF indoor track team

Rest assured this guy is NOT THAT GOOD, if he was, Urbie the clown would have kept him...

What a tag-team Rainey and Hornsby would be. Killing and stealing credit cards. Why, they would be bigger than Bonnie and Clyde.

YOU ARE AN EMBARASSMENT TO COLLEGIATE ATHLETICS, GATARD TRASH. YOU MAKE USC LOOK LIKE PRINCETON.

TRAILERVILLE MAKES STARKVILLE LOOK LIKE BEL AIRE.

HAVE YOU COME TO GRIPS WITH THE TRASH THAT YOU ARE?

DISGUSTING.

You clowns at UF know Oscar is not going to get rid of Rainey. Oscar might talk a good game right now, but just like he does with every other player, Rainey will stay with UF. After all, according to Oscar it was all just a big misunderstanding
GO VOLS

MonsterMuckyMuck:

your command of the English language and grammar leads me to believe that you graduated from UFelony. And that was before the budget cuts.

The stench keeps growing in that crap pile of a school.

It's funny when you get beat down and start embarrassing yourself gree..oops..I mean canesrule.

How many times has randy beat a ranked team on the road?

Damn, my tweets got intercepted too.

Tennessee, South Carolina and Georgia are all better then UF in the East. You can add Alabama, Arkansas, LSU and Auburn from the West as being better then UF. Beatdown #1 comes this Saturday

What??? YOU DO have problems! The Vols and their "stick-up" crew got destroyed by an average Pac-10 team!

I'll give Vol nation a pass and chalk this post up to Angry Cane. No self-respecting Vol would chirp like this!

That FAT QB of yours better be ready to play.
GO VOLS

What an idiot - doesn't deserve to be a Gator. A huge loss for everyone.

IF COACH SHANNON HAD HALF THE PLAYERS ARRESTED AS FLORIDA HAVE HAD ARRESTED. THE MEDIA AND EVERYONE ELSE WOULD BE ASKING FOR HIS RESIGNATION. SOME HOW, WITH FLORIDA AND EVEN FLORIDA STATE. IT'S QUIETER THAN A LIBRARY. PROVERBS 15:3 ST. MATTHEW 10:26 WHAT DON'T COME OUT IN THE WASH. WILL MUST CERTAINLY COME OUT IN THE RINSE. PSALMS 40

WHO'S PAYIN 4 HIS LAWYERS (& ALL THE REST OF THE 35 ARRESTS)..
START THE INVESTIGATION...

STOP BEIN A CHEERLEADER & DO UR JOB....

WOW!!! This really hurts the Gators depth at WR... I hope this all gets straightened out - FAST!!!

& WHEN R WE AS GATOR NATION GONNA SAYS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH......

Gator Nation will never say enough is enough. You dont really think they take any of this stuff serious do you. All you ever hear from that school is, well they are just kids and all kids deserve a 2nd chance. According to Oscar DUI and telling a woman its time to die isnt really that big of a deal

________________________________________________

If past precedence means anything, then Rainey could be permanently dismissed from the team. Former Gators Gary Brown, Ronnie Wilson and Jacques Rickerson were each dismissed from the team by Meyer after allegedly harming women. One of Meyer's "core values" for his team is respect for women.

-jo-

"Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer said on Monday that he expected Rainey to be available for this Saturday's game against the Tennessee Volunteers."

Figures.

Oh, and check with jo, I have not been on here at all today until now. Keep hallucinating, Curse Piggy.


It's certainly a problem.

Go ahead, Curse Piggy, and twist it any way you want, but even your own beat writer says that their lack of control is a problem.

That FAT QB of yours better be ready to play.
GO VOLS

Posted by: Rocky Top | September 14, 2010 at 06:07 PM

Those receivers of yours better be ready to play against Pitt.

Hey angry cane guy (aka Vol guy, gameCOCK guy) the good news -- no arrests in Coral Gables

The bad news -- you'll have to start the same crappy guys against Pitt.

It must be a crime at UF for a QB to say no to a twinkie.
GO VOLS

When was the last time the Gators played a top five non-conference opponent as the visiting team?

When was the last time the Gators played a regular season out of conference game that required an airplane flight?

SEC inbreeding makes College Football boring.

Gatard trash, you have bigger things to worry about than the Canes. Get past your obsession with the superior Miami Hurricanes whom you don't even play due to cowardice, and focus on the teams that will beat you to a pulp: Bama, LSU, South Carolina, Vols and Georgia.

You suck UFelony, but the Canes are the least of your worries.

What? another gator in trouble surprise, surprise.This is par for the course in prisonville how many is that 27 in two yrs.The gators will pay any price to win.their are enough Judges and lawyer alums to fix it so he will be back.Let me guess she was stalking him ,and you know he bumped his head in the last game.Case dismissed,cleared to play.

What's the big deal??... I tell people they're gonna die all the time...

For the record, a total of 25 players since Meyer has been in Gainesville have been arrested for a combined total of 30 misdemeanors (20) and felonies (10). Other players had sworn complaints filed against them or were issued criminal citations, requiring them to appear in court.

-jo-

With this last one Rainey just pulled should be enough to where he never steps foot on that campus again. Will Oscar follow through on that, I doubt it. When hes healthy enough he will play and the time off will be used as his suspension. Sorry but if you text/tell a woman its time to die you should be kicked out of that school right then and there.
