Heightened police presence around Ben Hill Griffin Stadium coincides with scheduled Quran burning and 9/11 anniversary

GAINESVILLE -- About 40 police vehicles, both marked and unmarked, were positioned in the north parking lot of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on the campus of the University of Florida on Wednesday.

The University of Florida's football team plays host to the University of South Florida at 12:21 p.m. on Saturday. Saturday is the anniversary of 9/11 and also the same day the pastor of a small church in Alachua County has said he will burn Qurans as a demonstration of First Amendment rights. The story became international news this week. Steve McClain, a spokesman for UF's athletic department, said the University of Florida's campus police department is working with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to prepare for Saturday's football game.

McClain said on Wednesday around 3 p.m. that "the most recent intelligence that we hear from, the UPD says there's no specific threats against the University of Florida or the Athletic Association, but UPD has heightened its awareness and security." The large number of police vehicles outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Wednesday likely indicated a meeting of law enforcement officers in preparation for Saturday's game, according to McClain.

The UAA is asking fans on Saturday "to pay more attention to the surroundings and report suspicious activities to police or to us," according to McClain. He also said the UAA is asking for people attending the game to arrive earlier than usual, likely due to more stringent security checks upon entering the stadium.

Error in his comments? More like bigoted racist diatribes from U....clown. Nice job to act like your not yourself. Who are you trying to convince in here? You are hated like poison. You post under dozens of different names. Do you really think anybody doubts that your hundreds of posts a day are anyone but you canesrule?

It's also funny that after weeks of claiming that you were paying for IP's so that you could "expose people" suddenly you're claiming that it was attempting to be done to you. You're a special kind of crazy son. Doesn't matter canesrule, throw up as much smoke as you like, the file on you that everyone now has is MASSIVE.

Now get back to your dead girls credit card and Ashley Slonina posts you despicable piece of garbage.


Wow, that is nut's hopefully nothing happens. Incredible how this has grown.

Yeah, yeah, yeah... first amendment rights and all that... but this preach is just stirring up trouble.

You gators are pathetic...you get your warm up game and you struggle and now you make adjustments for the rest of the games?? You need to take bad timeouts in close games then you make adjustments. That's what we do...it's called mindless swagga we invented it.

Instead of burning Korans, do something useful and burn some trailers you ignorant 'necks. Make Turdville beautiful (or at least try).

USF will smother that limp-wristed Pouncey 'tard.

ACME TOWEL SERVICE WITH AN INDUSTRIAL SIZE CONTAINER FOR A MR. BRANTLEY. HELPS WITH THE SOFT MOIST HANDS.

YOU ARE A JOKE UFELONY. YOU JUST DONT KNOW IT YET.

The cops are there to hold down the suicide rates for Gaytor fans after USF comes to the septic tank and buries UFelony.
The NCAA Sanctions are coming!!! BAWAHHHHH


No More bigoted racist diatribes from U on the Sun Sentinel pages, Curse Piggy. Nice job to act like you are not yourself, even though you change IDs more often than you change underwear. Who are you trying to convince in here? You are hated like poison. You post under dozens of different names. Do you really think anybody doubts that your hundreds of posts a day are anyone but you Curse Piggy?

It's also funny that after weeks of claiming that you were paying for IP's so that you could catch canesrule suddenly you're claiming that it was attempting to be done to you. You're a special kind of crazy piggy. Doesn't matter Curse, throw up as much smoke as you like, the facts on you that everyone now has is TRUTH. It is why you can't post your garbage on the Herald and Sun Sentinel sites, on the Post will soon be dropping the hammer on you, too.

Now get back to your threatening to lynch our head coach and Bryan Pata posts you despicable piece of garbage.


Top Florida team versus Top Ohio team.

"Are you for real???"
Yep.

The Ohio State University is the top team in Ohio. I am stunned you are questioning that. Are you that big a fan of the Akron Zips?

They have head to head advantage on each of their in-state opponents, and their seven national titles are the most national titles in their state.

2-0 over Akron
7-0 over Case
6-0 over Cincinnati
5-0 over Denison
3-0 over Miami (OH)
2-0 over Ohio
15-0 over Wesleyan
5-2-1 over Oberlin
4-0 over Wittenburg
1-0-1 over Wooster
2-0 over Youngstown State

The University of Miami is the top team in Florida. I am stunned you are questioning that. Are you that big a fan of the FAU Owls?

They have head to head advantage on each of their in-state opponents, and their five national titles are the most national titles in their state.

2-0 over UCF
7-1 over FAMU
2-0 over FIU
31-23 over FSU
2-0 over USF
6-3-1 over Tampa
28-26 over UFelony

"You can't win a basketball conference but because you beat FAMU you are the best team in Florida."
I never said that. Who would you suggest is higher? Surely not Florida, who dodges the competition, and 3 < 5, and people don't recognise them worldwide the way they do the Canes.
Florida State? Only 2 titles and even though they don't dodge competition, people don't recognise them worldwide the way they do the Canes.

"You see what I mean that you are a moron. Every post shows you know nothing about football. You are a moron."
Yeah, I bring facts, statistics, and truth. You bring insults, homophobic comments, and lies. A troll calling me a moron is a compliment, because the fact that you cannot UNDERSTAND the truth shows that you are nowhere near as smart as the average reader here, sicko obsessed woman-hater.

"Like I said clownsrule. Your MASSIVE file has been distributed to I.T. people and editors EVERYWHERE. The endless list has links to every single one of your comments. Did you think you could make disgusting comments about people and never be accountable? Not that anyone is arguing this point, but you have to be about the dumbest mofo on earth. But who cares, the file is very damaging. You can cry foul until the cows come home loser. The file doesn't lie."

"Hey Joe, I just got another email from that obsessed Gator troll, what should I do with it?"

"Ahhh, just toss it in the crank folder with the rest of his rantings. I hear that the Herald and Sun Sentinel already have him shut down, maybe we should do the same."

LMAO at Curse Piggy playing the victim. You got WIPED CLEAN, and now there is nothing left of you on the Canes blogs. Your day is through, victory is ours.

God Bless The USA!

Try to keep up, there fakey. Someone mentioned that discussing Nicki Meyer was deviant, but THEY brought her up, not me. I was DEFENDING her and the conference she plays in.

Here is the comment below, by an obsessed Gator troll.

Why don't you respond with a deviant comment about Nikki Meyer.

Understand now?

The blog Pig has been emasculated.

You still suck, Pig. Just like the Gatards.

My thoughts go to all the people who lost loved ones that day 9 years ago.... May God be with you!
