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.

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.

All we've done is own you in SOS over the last 10 years (at least). When's the last time the Canes played a #1 ranked team? Oh, yeah that was Florida.

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.

Never thought I'd see a Cane impersonate so many SEC fan/posters.

It's not just Gator envy...smells like SEC envy.

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.

Good points toothless, you're right on (except for the superior cane part).

Now that you've abandoned Cane-dom and choose to live vicariously through Gator nation (you're on this blog aren't you), you'll understand relevance and truly competitive conference play.

"Time to Die B---- u and ur???".

I am stunned that Huntley hasn't told Rainey to claim a typo.

Coach, I meant "Time to Diet", she has been putting on weight!

Threatening is just so low Chris. It makes me think you value the woman more than your own team. Your not thinking, what a waste.

Hey Cane Clowns don't worry your time will come.

Shannon has done a good job of covering stuff up at the Who but thank goodness for Shapiro, he will let everyone know what really goes on there. We all know it but it has to be made official.

I can't wait for the book to come out.

Hey Cane Clowns remember that you still suck.

You had 10 points generated by your offense against OSU. I hear people saying how Miami should have won that game. They had two lucky returns for tds. If OSU had any sort of special teams the score would have been 38-10.

Make no mistake I hate the damn Gators, but hope that Rainey can get his life in order, find a place to play football, get righteous and have a life not defined by 8ft. by 10ft.

Get it together young man, and don't waste your God given athletic talent.

Good luck Gator. Tired of all the hate!

Funny how some of you think that being a criminal is a "gator thing." No one should be blamed except the kid themselves. i like Rainey but get rid of him and put someone on the team who is gonna respect his team and himself. c'mon man!!

GATOR NATION YOUR EITHER A GATOR OR YOUR GATOR BAIT....SO WHAT IF RAINEY ISNT THERE WE ALWAYS RELOAD, HIS BACK UP ROBERT CLARK IS AN EXCELLENT PLAYER ( DUHH HE ON SCHOLARSHIP ) AND THIS JUST OPENS UP MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR OTHERS TO STEP UP AND PERFORM AS WELL, SUCH AS DUBOSE.. GET OFF THE GATORS NUTS!! AND WIN SOME GAMES, NEITHER THE NOLES, CANES, GAMECOCKS, VOLS, WILL BE IN A BCS BOWL...LOL

Houston Nutt at Ole Miss will recruit him.. wait and see.
