Another Weed Issue For Florida

You can add another SEC player to the list of guys who stupidly failed drug tests at the NFL combine this past February.  No shock here, the failed test belonged to a Florida Gator.

By now you’re well aware of these two facts:

* UF has a very liberal five-strikes drug policy for its athletes

* A former member of the 2006 national championship Gators estimated that 75% of his teammates smoked pot

So the fact that former UF offensive lineman Maurice Hurt tested positive at the combine for marijuana is par for the course.  In fact, Hurt is the third Gator in as many years to fail a drug test for weed at the combine.  The others were Percy Harvin and Aaron Hernandez.

Hurt joins Georgia’s Justin Houston and Iowa’s Christian Ballard on this year’s list of dimwits.

If you know you’re going to be drug tested, how do you light up beforehand?

Jenkins, Three Others Out For UF’s Outback Bowl

The University of Florida confirmed today that four Gator footballers have had surgery this month and will not play against Penn State in Saturday’s Outback Bowl.  Among the injured — cornerback Janoris Jenkins (left).

Jenkins is expected to jump to the NFL in April, so his career in Gainesville is likely over.  According to The Gainesville Sun, there’s a chance he’ll be replaced in the bowl game by true freshman Cody Riggs.

Maurice Hurt (offensive line), Terron Sanders and Lawrence Marsh (both D-tackles) will also miss the game.  All three of those players are seniors.
