St. Thomas Aquinas alum Roberson out for remainder of season

Florida will play the rest of its season without its best cornerback.

Freshman Marcus Roberson suffered an injury to his neck during last week's loss to South Carolina and will miss the Gators' final two regular season games and the team's bowl game should they beat Furman on Saturday.

Florida coach Will Muschamp announced the news this morning at his weekly press conference, saying Roberson is still being evaluated. Muschamp classified the injury as a strain, and he said the medical staff is erring on the side of caution because of the seriousness of neck injuries.

"It's nothing that's going to be permanent," Muschamp said, adding that Roberson should "be fine" in 4 to 6 weeks. "He's going to be back for spring, but he will miss the rest of the season."

Sophomore Cody Riggs, also a graduate of Fort Lauderdale's St. Thomas Aquinas, will step back in to the starting lineup in Roberson's absence, Muschamp said. Riggs started the first seven games for Florida but was replaced by sophomore Jaylen Watkins against Georgia. Freshman Louchiez Purifoy and senior Moses Jenkins could also see playing time, with freshman safety De'Ante Saunders serving as an emergency option. 

Roberson started all of Florida's games this season, racking up 22 tackles, two pass break ups, a fumble recovery and an interception. Roberson and Saunders both started the season opener, becoming the first freshman duo to do so in school history.

Yo, Gatr Trash, make it "SEC West" because the SEC LEast suuuuuucks.

It's now been 5 years since Gatr maggot won anything. Tired yet? Next year's track team will feature no track athletes so whachagonnado?

Send out Driskel and Brissett as the two-headed monster? HORRIBLE

Run behind that sieve of an O-Line? HORRIBLE

Throw to the non-existent receivers? HORRIBLE


Yep, things sure look bright in Trailerville. And once Urban finishes gutting the coaching staff, you will look back fondly on the Zooker years.

But hey, Muscrap is a fine choice. BWWAHAHAHAAHHAHA.

You guys see Chandler Parsons dunk over Blake Griffin last night - it was sweet!

Gatr Douche is here. All trash isn't Gatr, but if it's Gatr it's all trash.

Yo, Cane Trash, the ACC suuuuuucks.

It's now been 10 years since Cane maggot won anything. Tired yet? Next year's track team will feature no track athletes so whachagonnado?

Send out Morris and the freshmen as the two-headed monster? HORRIBLE

Run behind that sieve of an O-Line? HORRIBLE

Throw to the non-existent receivers? HORRIBLE


Yep, things sure look bright in caneville. And once the NCAA finishes gutting the program, you will look back fondly on the Shannon years.

But hey, Goldencrap is a fine choice. BWWAHAHAHAAHHAHA.

Cane Douche is here. All trash isn't Cane, but if it's Cane it's all trash.

Canes, you suck.

scUM, you are a disgusting dump.

Below-average intelligence Gatr Douche has no original thoughts. Just copy what is posted. Typical FloriDUH education at work.

Read the news, Gomer. FloriDU's public education funding is at or near the bottom of the nation. If you don't think that directly impacts
the value of a UTrailer diploma, you are dumber than your mother looks.

Just because UTrailer had three successful years out of 100 does not make it a respectable university. And don't get me started in that dump Gainesville or the meth capital of FloriDUH, Alachua County.

You lose, again, ignorant 'neck.

Below-average intelligence cane Douche has no original thoughts. Just copy what is posted. Typical Dah U un-education at work.

Read the news, Gomer. scUM sports programs are at or near the bottom of the nation. If you don't think that directly impacts
the value of a sun tan U diploma, you are dumber than your mother looks.

Just because scUM had success in the 80s and 90s it does not make it a respectable university. And don't get me started in that dump Miami or the crime and homeless and unemployment capital of FloriDUH, Miami Dade county.

You lose, again, ignorant doUchebag.

That's good comedy.

WE BACK!!! DUH U

Can we plat them canes again next year.
They're back, Dah U!

LOSER CANE TROLL YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS NOT ORIGINAL, POSTING THE SAME TIRED CRAP OVER AND OVER.
WE ARE NOT ONLY ORIGINAL BUT VERY FUNNY AS WELL.
CHECK OUT YOUR LOSER BLOG TO FIND OUT, FOOL.

Listen gayturd, we have more pro bowlers, large tabs at prime 112, more swagga, uncle luke, and more orange seats then you 'necks could ever imagine there in trailorville. Your diploma mill uh diplomas will at best get you middle management jobs in hialeah managing us cane fans. Sorry break time is ova as as are the gaytors.

Listen scUMbag, you have more pro bowlers(lots of good that will do ya), large tabs at prime 112, fake swagga, uncle luke, and more empty orange seats then you could ever imagine in the whole nation. Your diploma mill uh diplomas will at best get you behind the local Publix deli or a Pollo. Your sorry program has been done for over a decade. Get on that time machine and go back to 1987 fool.

Yikes--haven't been to this site in a while, now I remember why: Just INUNDATED with idiot trolls, most from "da EEEWWW"--the usual few who haunt this and a handful of other public Gator-sites, and some of your very own.
Anyway, was following links dealing with our extensive injuries this past season and clicked here searching for word on Roberson's ongoing treatment and recovery. Do you know how he is DOING, Mike? (I know: not only revival of and old article/discussion, but, shock of shocks, ON-TOPIC) Remember, every one of these highly talented guys we get back in top form, fully rehabbed and working hard, is like bringing in a new recruit with the 2012 class, one who has gotten bigger, stronger, faster and more experiences since he was originally brought in.
If we can get back Roberson and the rest to go with what is shaping up to be an extraordinarily promising prospective class, we are going to be "back" that much faster.
