Morrison arrest video released: Cops overzealous?

The Gainesville Sun acquired video footage (via police dashboard camera) of Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison's arrest early Sunday morning for harassing a police dog and resisting arrest without violence. 

In the article published by the Sun, Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell said the arresting officer should've issued a warning rather than detaining Morrison.     

You be the judge...

Will Muschamp will participate in ESPN’s “Car Wash” on Tuesday, as Florida’s coach will appear on various ESPN platforms reciting his 2,500-word, greatest-hits dissertation from SEC Media Days discussing his team and the upcoming year. I’m sure “barking” will be brought up a time or two.

Muschamp will be one of several SEC coaches in attendance on the Bristol, Conn., campus, as Arkansas coach Bret Bielema, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops, Tennessee coach Butch Jones and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier will also make the rounds Tuesday.

St. Thomas Aquinas defensive tackle Anthony Moten decommitted from Florida on Saturday.

According to recruiting experts, Moten’s decommitment wasn’t all that surprising considering the four-star prospect had never visited Gainesville and was openly courting other schools. Miami, Florida State and South Carolina remain high on Moten’s list, but it remains to be seen if Florida will continue recruiting him.

Shortly after the news broke, Moten sent out the following tweet, publically announcing his reasoning for decommitting.

Florida now has just 10 commitments in the 2014 class, but the Gators are expected to make some positive noise this weekend during their annual Friday Night Lights camp (June 26).


The NFL announced this weekend New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended (again) for violating the league’s substance abuse policy and program.

Hill is forced to sit out four games next season, just a year removed from missing four games in 2012 for violating the league’s drug policy.

Hill is one of four players -- Brandon Spikes, Joe Haden and Jermaine Cunningham are the others -- from Florida’s 2008 BCS National Championship team to be suspended by the NFL for (allegedly) using performance-enhancing drugs.
