Starting Gator WR Rainey arrested after 'time to die' text

On the field, Florida’s had their share of issues during the early portion of the 2010 regular season.

Now, head coach Urban Meyer and his Gators coaching staff have a fairly significant off-the-field distraction to deal with as well.

According to the Gainesville Sun, starting wide receiver Chris Rainey was arrested early Tuesday morning and hit with a charge of aggravated stalking.  The alleged victim is a woman Rainey has been dating off and on for somewhere in the neighborhood of three years.

Gainesville police told the paper that the incident began when the woman missed a call from Rainey after falling asleep.  Based on the police officer’s account of the ensuing events, that didn’t sit well with Rainey.

Officer Jesse Bostick said Rainey went to the woman’s home, and she talked to him for about 10 minutes and then told him to leave. According to Bostick, Rainey sent a text to the woman that said: “Time to die.” The woman called police after receiving the text.

Bostick said that when he arrived at the woman’s home he told the woman to call Rainey so that he could talk to him. 

The woman said that when she told Rainey that police wanted to speak to him, Rainey’s response was, “Wait and see what happens when they leave.”

Rainey did not deny sending the next, but did deny the seemingly threatening statement made over the phone.  He was subsequently arrested and booked into county jail.

The redshirt junior becomes the 147th* Gator arrested during Meyer’s tenure as head coach.  The school has yet to comment on Rainey’s arrest.

Rainey’s six receptions this season are second on the team, although he has just 34 yards receiving, and he’s scored one of the four Gators receiving touchdowns.

(*actually, it’s only around 30.  We think, as they have a tendency to run together.)

    I see what you did there John. First you post an article about Fulmer and then you post an article about the team trying to win the Fulmer Cup.
    Its going to be tough to beat Georgia,FSU or Minnesota at this point. Nigel Carr of FSU was an All Star this year rackeing up 17 points . I think Georgia leads in total arrests.

    Taylor, I wish they could arrest you for stupidity and put you in the same cell as Rainey so he could ‘discuss’ your idiotic commentary with you, personally. To even allude to the “147th” arrest, let alone try to half-heartedly explain it away with a “only around 30, they have a tendency to run together” comment, shows what little journalistic integrity you have. Stick to facts. You’ll look less moronic… maybe.

    Coach Meyer,
    Love the lead in story on your ex nemesis, Fulmer! They won’t ever let that one die, huh?
    OK…It’s time to grow up and and start disciplining your players! 147 arrests…OMG! He needs to be dismissed immediately. What if he did this to YOUR daughter?
    GROW UP URBAN…football is not the end-all of life!
    See ya around!!

    Boohoo, Florida727. This isn’t a just-the-facts site, which is pretty well evidenced by the fact that “news and rumors” is the main link at the top. If you come here for your primary source of journalistic integrity/just-the-facts-reporting, well, then, you’re about as dumb as I’d expected a Gator fan to be.

    I for one hope Urban suspends Rainey indefinetly until this plays out. At the least I would sit him 3 games which would incl the Bama game.
    The Gators lead the nation, having played “27″ true & red shirt freshman in the first 2 games. We are young & loaded with talent but Urban has got to get the baby Gators attention and suspending a starter & key player hopefully will wake these kids up.

    Florida fans are a bunch of holier-than-thous. The Fulmer Cup was created by a holier-than-thou Gator fan and the irony is that the Vols haven’t come close to winning it since it was created and the Gators have had more than their share of miscreants, even under Lord God All Urban. When Gator fans get all pissy toward other programs, they need to be reminded that they’re just as bad as anyone else but they take great pains to cultivate a reputation that just isn’t true.

  11. LogicalConsideration says: Sep 14, 2010 10:43 AM

    Jeez! There seems to be an endless stream of people whose hatred for this blog causes them to react to it with out, oh, I don’t know, READING IT.
    You twits who ranted about 147 players—the author made it abundantly clear that it was a joke (the 30 or so is not a joke).
    It isn’t an issue of him being inaccurate. He was making a JOKE! Perfectly acceptable in a blog post. This isn’t the freakin’ New York Times or Wall Street Journal.
    Of course for the likes of Florida727, I suppose being unhinged is par for the course now that you have seen what sort of product you are putting on the field this year. Based on the first two outings, I’d bet on at least 4 losses in the final 10 games. There isn’t a team on Florida’s schedule that doesn’t have a chance to win, including App. State and Vandy.
    The line on the Bama game will be at least 10.

  12. Florida727 says: Sep 14, 2010 10:58 AM

    Hate to burst the bubble of all you idiots on here, but I’m perfectly content with Rainey being suspended indefinitely, if not for the entire season, because of the stupidity and threatening nature of his text and/or comment about what happens once the police leave. My point, which was clearly proven by the interpretation of Taylor’s post by “Daisy girl” is, why even joke about college athletes being arrested? If a subject like that is funny to you, then you’ve got a much more deep-seated problem than whether or not you root for one team v. another. I don’t give a crap if you root for TN or ‘Bama or UCLA or whoever. Certain subjects are serious issues, not just rumors or opportunities to take cheap shots at coaches, Fulmer, Urban, Saban, whoever. By the way “Logical”, any chance you’d be willing to bet on that 4 losses comment? The Gators have looked horrible for 2 games, no doubt about it. But they’ll still not lose to App. State or Vandy, or whoever else you think adds up to FOUR losses on their schedule. So other than ‘Bama, which the Gators will lose to, who else are you figuring will hand them those other loses?

  13. blitz4848 says: Sep 14, 2010 11:27 AM

    @ Edgy
    Unfortunately you are back. The Gators have more than their share arrests and it is troubling.
    The only thing more troubling for GATOR alum is a$$holes like you with your rants from the U$C cheat tank. You babble just to see your words on a blog……It really says a lot when YOU are more annoying than losing the Dish signal on a 4th goal form the 1 with 3 sec to go and your team down by 4.
    Speaking of holier-than-thous how is the air up there on Mt KY Edgy? Still pissed off at the world for having spent 20 yrs as an alter boy? I’ll bet you have a different understanding of what over/under really means……….
    @Logical Consideration
    Do you have a clue or do you just speak mindlessly? The Gators looked bad game 1, bad 1st half game 2 and the 2nd half of game 2 started to show what they can do. They have played 27 freshman so far, have 4 new coaches, new qb and a diff offense. they don’t deserve to be ranked any higher than they are right now—but as the season goes along and the baby Gators learn and grow up they will be a force to reckon with.
    The GATOR def is already GOOD. The secondary has 8 int–lead the nation. The special teams are very good and DEMPS is a star in the making. The O is a work in progress but the D can keep us in any game as we develope into a lean mean SEC Championship machine.
    There’s a better chance that BAMA will give up 40 pts to Duke than Florida losing 4 games. Neither of course is remotely possible.
    I suggest you watch UF vs Tennesse Sat at 3:30 on CBS and get a handle on the talent UF has. Once they harness that talent into a team we will play with anyone and be capable of winning. It’s not how you start–it’s how you finish.
    We get 2 bites of the apple so it will play out on the field against the best…….

    Keep on this story, John.
    I wonder if the male Virginia lacrosse player, that killed the female Virginia lacrosse player, ever sent her a text like this: Time to die.
    Obviously, Chris Rainey is an idiot and an a-hole for texting such a statement, not to mention what he said over the phone.

  15. WingT says: Sep 14, 2010 11:42 AM

    It will be interesting to see what Urban does with this latest Rainey issue.
    We as fans have so little information regarding what goes on inside the locker room. It’s ridiculous for any of us to try and suggest what the punishment should or should not be.
    All we can do is trust the coaches and administrators decisions.
    There seems to be a lot of Florida hate on this board. I guess that is to be expected because of the long term success the program has experienced.

  16. blitz4848 says: Sep 14, 2010 12:00 PM

    @ JaggedMark
    Let’s wait before we certify everything. When arrested/booked he admitted he was forthcoming and his story jived with hers EXCEPT he denies the phone statement—I’m just saying let’s wait and see…….
    I already stated he should be indefinetly suspended and he needs therapy/counseling.
    He’s no rookie as he has been around UF 4 yrs so
    he is totally accountable and should be dealt with accordingly.
    It blows one’s mind how these athletes who have NFL potential do so many assinine things that in many cases are “life changing”.

    Unlike you, I don’t disappear because I don’t want to answer questions like why won’t Florida play outside the state? Really, just WHEN will you answer THAT question.
    As for the babble, you’re the hypocrite here. I’ve never gotten on to Florida about anything BUT their and their fans hypocrisy. YOU guys prattle on and on about other programs but boy, when the truth is put on you, the first thing that you do is to try to deflect that fact and then you try to besmirch the reputations of the people to try to silence them. If you’ve spent ANY time looking at what I’ve said about USC, I haven’t defended what happened and in fact, I said that the only way that THEY and OTHER Big Programs would learn from this is if they got the Death Penalty.
    Oh and as for my babbling just to see my words on a blog, I could go to ESPN and babble in front of a lot smarter and dumber people than you (more of the former and less of the latter) and have a much bigger audience so it’s pretty stupid to insinuate that I’m babbling for an audience.
    BTW, you must have been molested as a youngster by the priests (or would it be the Deacon, in your case) to be going on about altar boys? FYI, I was never an altar boy but I’m guessing that you were either one OR you’re a closet gay because it seems that the ones who scream about it the most, like a certain bathroom stalking, foot tapping REPUBLICAN senator, turn out to be that way.

  19. LogicalConsideration says: Sep 14, 2010 12:09 PM

    Florida has a very good defense, but please don’t brag about 8 INTs playing against The Little Sisters of the Poor. The problem is the offense. Okay so it got better in the second half of the 2nd game. It was still anemic against 4th rate competition.
    A little history. I analyze my team with dispassion. In 2008, I watched the first two games of the season of both Alabama and Florida and said, “Bama isn’t ready to knock off Florida, no matter what talking heads think the rest of the season.” In 2009, I watched the first two games of both teams and said, “That’s a wrap. The only team out there that might have a chance is Texas.” If Saban didn’t respect JoePa so much that could have been 45-3. I’m telling you, now, in 2010, Florida has zero chance to beat Bama. Auburn and Ohio State MIGHT. Might. Personally I doubt it, but both are so substantially better than last year that the jury is out.
    Florida’s remaining schedule is Kentucky, Alabama, LSU, Mississippi St., UGa, Vandy, S.Car., App. State and FSU. In addition to Bama, probable losses are S.Car and FSU. They’ll figure out a way to lose one of the others. Remember the last 3 years? There were at least 2 games a year that Florida should have lost in upsets, but Tebow barreled ahead to convert a 4 and 8 or 4th and 12. He’s not there to bail out the team anymore. Now, they’ll lose those games.

  20. WingT says: Sep 14, 2010 12:46 PM

    I think we are going to find out about Alabama this weekend. Everyone blows off Duke but they have a prolific passing attack. Duke will reveal any weaknesses in Bama’s secondary – I expect Duke to score at least 21 points on BAMA, maybe more.

  21. blitz4848 says: Sep 14, 2010 12:59 PM

    @ EDGY
    You continue to make an a$$ of yourself. I don’t and never have defended UF’s arrests or bad behavior. You have a very bad habit of lumping me in with everyone else when you make your points—I have never disappeared and I answered your ? about UF’s scheduling.
    Almost all the big power teams play 3 home cupcakes & 1 H & H. Unfortunately our H & H with a good team is instate rival FSU. That gives you & others something to bitch about because they only leave the state for conference games, the SEC championship and our almost annual BCS bowl game appearance. The economics have college football have a lot to do with these cupcake games. The Gators have the finest overall facilities in the nation. They added a Lacrosse field this past yr along with a Lacrosse team. The GATORS have top notch venues for every sport and that’s why they are in the top 5 programs EVERY yr for the all around sports championship. In order to keep all this going they play 7 or 8 home games each yr and make enough $$ to fund all the various sports and keep the facilities top notch as well.
    Your takeoff on my jokes about you and the 20 yrs you spent on your knees as an alter boy is a compliment. I was always taught that when one mimicks what you are doing it’s because they can’t do it any better so they copy you.
    Thank You
    I’ll bet SoFlaTrojan “cringes” every time you start spewing your BS…….talking down as you just did, saying we are dumb on here and amarter people are on the ESPN blog!!!! If that was the case it would seem that one with your superior West Coast U$C knowledge would want to be with bloggers that ubderstand and appreciate your infinite wisdom……so STFU here and move on over to ESPN or is it TRUE you’re here because they ran you off from there…….
    They are so unappreciative…..ROFLMAO

    I watch the games as well.
    The South Carolina & FSU games are the 10th & 12th of the season–by then the GATORS will be a well oiled machine. The GATORS may lose to Bama & LSU but by beating BOTH Georgia & SC in the SWAMP the GATORS will win the SEC east and beat BAMA in the SEC ch. and I say that objectively. I won’t be hard to find so we’ll see how it plays out. If they don’t get the GATORS early they may not get them. Once 4 new coaches, 28 & counting freshman, new Qb, diff offense ALL get clicking the GATORS will be a NATIONAL player this yr and ’11 & 12 will be fun to watch.

  23. Deb says: Sep 14, 2010 2:07 PM

    @WingT …
    All we can do is trust the coaches’ and administrators’ decisions’? Is that a joke post?
    Do you know how many times administrators at Virginia Tech were informed about disturbing issues concerning Seung-Hui Cho before he went on his campus shooting rampage? Football coaches aren’t trained to deal with these issues. What do they expect a suspension to accomplish? The guy didn’t try to poke out anyone’s eye during a game?
    If there’s a policy in place that says players are automatically suspended if arrested, then fine–suspend him. But since this young man has owned his text, he should immediately be ordered into anger-management therapy. He needs to be taught appropriate relationship boundaries. And he’d need that even if he were dumped from the team and never allowed to play another down.
    It’s idiotic to assume you can correct these kinds of issues simply by sitting a guy. This is not a football problem.

  24. locked86 says: Sep 14, 2010 2:27 PM

    @Everyone commenting On Urban Meyer.
    I would like to point out I’m not a Florida fan. I have no interest in Florida Football and I really don’t care how well/godawful their team is this year. I would like to know why Urban Meyer’s name is even mentioned? Urban is not paid to baby sit his players. He can guide them to the right choice, but he has no control over what choices his players make. These aren’t kids; these are young men, that really should know better. Until you have proof that Urban is directly responsible for all the arrests; keep his name out of stories like these. I’m sure that Rainey will be punished for his actions, and Florida Football will continue on.
    @WingT
    Duke will score twenty-one points on Alabama, well, the same time that hell freezes over.
    @LogicalConsideration
    Saban stepped off the gas during the Penn state game. It’s pretty obvious that he wasn’t going to embarrass Joe. He wasn’t going to nuke Penn State, even though he probably could have.

    ***********************
    I didn’t say that you haven’t said anything about the Gators but then why let the truth get in the way with your rant? What I have said is that you are a HYPOCRITE to wag your finger at other programs when you need to make sure your house is clean. It’s why I don’t go pissing all over Alabama, North Carolina, Florida or any other program that has either been accused or found guilty of improprieties.
    It’s absolute BULL about you’re answering my question. This is ABSOLUTELY THE FIRST TIME that you’ve EVER responded to my query.
    As for your response: BULL, again. Alabama left the state to go to Hawaii so why can’t Florida? Do you believe that they have the finest facilities in the nation? Well, tell that to the people in Texas or Ohio State or any number of other programs that will call you stupid for not knowing how much their facilities are the envy of others. You show total arrogance (What else can I expect from a Gator fan – yes, NOW, I’m lumping you guys together) to say that and especially to try to justify the fact that the program won’t even play in RAYMOND JAMES STADIUM against South Florida while the University of Oklahoma will go across the state to play in SKELLY STADIUM, which is NOT close to being a first class stadium. Again, why is Florida AFRAID of leaving the state? Ohio State played a home and home against USC and they’re playing one with Miami (FL) and they’re even going to Berkley to play Cal. Why are they NOT afraid to leave their state and why is it that they aren’t worrying about the economics like you claim that Florida does? Heck, they could play at Cowboys Stadium like LSU and Oregon, if they’re worried about the economics of a H & H with a REAL opponent. So, why is Florida AFRAID?
    I’m NOT mimicking you, I’m merely telling everyone here that your fascination with altar boys shows that you must be a closet gay that needs to deflect his back door adventures with the Deacon.
    Listen Forest Gator, you are stupid or you can’t read or you’re deliberately trying to Glenn Beck my words because I said YOU and ONLY YOU are the target of my “I could go to ESPN and babble in front of a lot smarter and dumber people than you” (See the word YOU and no such use of any kind of collective when I talked about YOU). Try as you might to get people here stirred up against me, the others will understand that I meant YOU and only YOU.
    BTW, you have noticed more than once that the guy that you keep trying to say is cringing has actually praised what I’ve said about a lot of things but why let the truth get in the way of your rant. Did I mention that HE and not I called Lord God All Urban a scumbag so I don’t believe that he’s eating up your bullshit and agreeing with you as much as you think.

    @locked86
    Have you seen Duke’s passing attack? Our secondary is not seasoned / experienced. The passing attack of Duke is as good as there is in college football. They are going to find ways to pick apart the Bama secondary and they will score points.

    8 Int’s in 2 games is just phenomenal.

    EDGY you make up $hit as you go–the GATORS never refused to play in Raymond J—South Florida can’t sell enough tickets to make it profitable. USF is coming to Gainesville twice for the $$$. Noone held a gun to their head.
    You said UF could play in these early season games—show me any link(I know others say the same thing to you and you never have an answer)where the GATORS have been offered to play in any of these early games. You CAN’T.
    You make up crap–YOU are a LIAR!!!! If the GATORS could be the only game in town AND get $2 mil plus like LSU I think they would do that. You have no justification to say they won’t.
    As far as facilities I was talking about the various venues–not just football fields & weight rooms. UF has as good of facilities across ALL sports as any college in the country. I wasn’t pompous or talking down others facilities as you TRY to portray. I was trying to explain to you the economics of keeping all these sports afloat in the black–UF football is the engine that makes all that happen. There is a budget to maintain and income has to be able to pay the budget. If that means we play 7 or 8 games at home so be it. If we could make more $$$ playing on the road we would–it’s a business–not driven by your screechy little rants but business models.
    UF not going to Hawaii, again was biz decision. Schools take those as bonuses for their alum, coaches families etc…they lose $$ on that trip.
    Florida has an operating budget that is higher, and more sports and facilities than Bama and decided it would be better to play a home game and make the $$$ it generates.

    Then you’ll appreciate the words of Forrest Gump: Stupid is as stupid does … no matter where he went to school.
    Your laughable notion that ADs and coaches are in any way prepped to handle domestic violence issues is the biggest ass-umption of the day.
    And yes, WingT, I expect I do have more experience with those issues than the football coaches in Gainesville. You know what they say about making assumptions, jackass.

    Really? USF can’t sell tickets to a game at Ray Jay against the Florida Gators? You’re a moron to believe that because if they couldn’t sell it to their local fans, they could easily sell it to the Gator fans unless you’re saying that the Gator fans DON’T TRAVEL (Which could explain why they don’t go to Hawaii like every other school that’s played them has). Seriously, you honestly believe that they couldn’t sell tickets to a game against the Gators? You do realize how stupid that sounds, right? Tulsa has only had a few sellouts at Skelly over the years but you couldn’t squeeze Kate Moss through the crowd of people that showed up for their games against the Sooners. If they had a 100,000 seat stadium, they could have sold out and had standing room only because the city is crazy about the Sooners. Are you saying that the you guys can only fill up your home stadium but don’t travel well or are do you think that everyone here is stupid enough to believe your tripe?
    Who gives a shit about your lacrosse fields when it comes to talking about FOOTBALL or did you forget that this is what we’re talking about? What that has to do with Florida not leaving the state is beyond me? Hell, they should just go independent so they can play all 12 games in Gainesville so you can build better tennis and volley ball courts.
    Talk about someone who’s making shit up as they go along: I NEVER said that the Gators were OFFERED and YOU are a LIAR, buckwheat, if you continue to say that I did. I said why are they AFRAID to play outside of Florida (Maybe I should link these verbs to dictionary.com so you can look a what they really mean because you seem to be confused)? I never said that anyone specifically offered them anything, I merely wanted to know why they DON’T play outside of Florida like Alabama, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Texas and USC play outside of their states?
    Oh and bullshit on the links crap. You can make shit up all you want but I posted the damn links ONCE and it was for ONE person and waited for him to reply to me about them (and he never did) and if they wanted to go find them, they could have because — gasp — there’s a search option that allows you to do just that. Now, I don’t have to post ANY links to YOU about anything here because YOU are distorting what I said. NOT ONCE did I say that they were offered and if you try to say that then you’re being disingenuous because you’re trying to make it seem like I’m lying about Florida being afraid to leave the state. Again, when WAS the last time that they left the state for anything other than a bowl or a conference game?

    Edgy doesn’t understand economics & how athletic depts operate and what they have to do with the football programs. You Fing thick headed moron—Football pays the bills at the BCS schools or trys to. The better a an AD manages the business the better and more programs the schools can provide. Florida does one of the best jobs in the country at staying in the black and how they do it is in the schools best interest and if that doesn’t appease Mt Edgy who cares so as you are so used to hearing on the blogs …..STFU.
    Ohio St plays 1 OOC away game
    Bama plays 1 OOC away game
    UF plays 1 OOC away game
    Most of us fans wish there was a better system but until there is it is what it is. Now that you have nothing to say about Boise St since VaTech got battered by a better James Madison you have started back on your anti Florida soapbox.
    Your silence all week on Boise has been very noticeable since we had to read 2o plus blogs from Mt Edgy talking down to us about the virtues of Boise St. Now that they have been exposed so easily you will have to get a new cause
    because we all know Boise St is as dead as the ACC now is.
    On Saturday night I heard this really loud
    whooooosh and I wasn’t sure if that was the air going out of the Boise hot air balloon or your head exploding!!!!!
    I’ve never seen someone with so much envy of the GATOR program…….

    It will be interesting to see what Urban does with this latest Rainey issue.
    We as fans have so little information regarding what goes on inside the locker room. It’s ridiculous for any of us to try and suggest what the punishment should or should not be.
    All we can do is trust the coaches and administrators decisions.
    There seems to be a lot of Florida hate on this board. I guess that is to be expected because of the long term success the program has experienced.

    Sweetheart can you please point out what the heck you’re talking about?

    @WingT … You’re welcome, Sugar. Sorry you’re having trouble keeping up. Maybe that’s why you’ve been arguing such a silly point all afternoon.
    WingT says: We as fans have so little information regarding what goes on inside the locker room. It’s ridiculous for any of us to try and suggest what the punishment should or should not be. All we can do is trust the coaches and administrators decisions.
    Deb says: All we can do is trust the coaches’ and administrators’ decisions? Is that a joke post? Do you know how many times administrators at Virginia Tech were informed about disturbing issues concerning Seung-Hui Cho before he went on his campus shooting rampage? Football coaches aren’t trained to deal with these issues. What do they expect a suspension to accomplish? The guy didn’t try to poke out anyone’s eye during a game?
    If there’s a policy in place that says players are automatically suspended if arrested, then fine–suspend him. But since this young man has owned his text, he should immediately be ordered into anger-management therapy. He needs to be taught appropriate relationship boundaries. And he’d need that even if he were dumped from the team and never allowed to play another down. It’s idiotic to assume you can correct these kinds of issues simply by sitting a guy. This is not a football problem.
    WingT says: Yes, I am perfectly serious. All I am saying is that this issue with Rainey is one for the Florida Athletic department and administration to sort out. But I am sure you disagree because you have a much better idea of how things should be done than the experts, lol
    Deb says: I’m saying that if you think the Florida ATHLETIC Department and University Administration are EXPERTS in domestic violence issues, then you are an idiot. Florida grad, huh?
    WingT says: No Deb, I went to Bama. You know what they say about making assumptions, lol
    Deb says: Then you’ll appreciate the words of Forrest Gump: Stupid is as stupid does … no matter where he went to school. Your laughable notion that ADs and coaches are in any way prepped to handle domestic violence issues is the biggest ass-umption of the day. And yes, WingT, I expect I do have more experience with those issues than the football coaches in Gainesville. You know what they say about making assumptions, jackass.
    (Forrest Gump went to Bama, WingT.)

    *****
    Again, you’re either being disingenuous or your blitzenheimer’s is kicking in because I’ve spoken many times about the economics of college sports and the fact that many of the SMALLER programs are spending more time near home because of the travel costs involved UNLESS they’re compensated for the costs. Last year, one college even canceled their season opener because they couldn’t afford to cover the travel costs of the visitors and that’s something that’s going to hurt future scheduling but most of that will involve the smaller divisions and won’t be as big a problem with the Big Boys because they make Big Money.
    Florida makes money hand over fist NO MATTER WHERE THEY PLAY. To say that economics plays a part in the fact that they DON’T play any of the 2 games against South Florida at Raymond James is a lie because it doesn’t. You’d have to be a complete moron to believe that the stadium doesn’t sell out if the Gators come to town so that either makes you a complete moron or in your words: a LIAR because you KNOW that it isn’t true.
    You’re kidding, right? You’re trying to equate those teams’ OOC games that are played OUT OF THE
    STATE with their ONLY OOC road game that NEVER leaves the state. Traveling out of the state does entail risking some money to go to another venue but Alabama went to Hawaii and the program was GUARANTEED enough to make it worth their while. Are you saying thy Florida couldn’t get such guarantees? Ohio State can pack 100,000+ into the Horseshoe and yet, they’re willing to risk all of that to go to Miami, Florida and play the Hurricane in a stadium that will never come close to making up for the money that they could make at home? It’s funny but even while they’ve been jetting around the country playing at USC and Miami, the Buckeyes have – gasp – made money (They are one of the HAVES in the BCS, like Florida). How is that the AD at Ohio State can make money AND travel but your AD apparently can’t? Oklahoma will take a couple hours drive down the turnpike to play in a 31,000 seat stadium that won’t hold much more but you’re saying that it’s economically not feasible for the Gators not to take a couple hours drive to Tampa to play in a stadium that seats double that? Shouldn’t you be firing your AD and hiring one that actually knows how to make money on an in-state or out of state road game? How is it that Florida can play at Tallahassee every couple of years or are you saying that they lose money but play the game for pride?
    You boob, if you had actually read and COMPREHENDED what I had said before, I don’t expect Boise State to be the top non-AQ team by the end of the BCS or even when the first or second BCS poll is posted. Unless things go horribly wrong, TCU and THEN Utah are the teams to beat. Utah has a harder road to climb to the top but if they get past BYU, Air Force (not a given) and TCU (a home game), their strength of schedule will put them ahead of Boise State just as TCU’s will do so. I would deem Boise State as worthy as the ACC or Big East champion so get off your high horse about them.
    Don’t act as if I just came up with this to divert attention. I’m not a son of a blitz, here and I’ve tried to ask the questions about the Gators for a while and you’ve never answered it until yesterday and even then you’ve done your best to try to divert it from what it really is into another argument. Why is it that EVERY major program in the country will travel OUT OF STATE for OOC games EXCEPT Florida? If it’s economics then why don’t they fire the ADs at the other schools because they’re doing it wrong and Florida is the only program that’s doing it right?
    Finally, ENVY? You’re stupid. Why would I envy the Johnny Come Lately to the National Championship scene? Please, I would envy Alabama over USC ANY day of the week before I’d even think about a program that won its first 14 years ago and didn’t even win their first conference championship until 26 years ago and your school vacated it and you didn’t get your first OFFICIAL SEC championship until 1991. What’s next, I’ll envy BYU for winning in 1984? Come on, if you think that I would envy Florida, you’re deluded. Hell, in the SEC, they’re FOURTH in National Championships won after Alabama, LSU and Tennessee. You honestly believe that I would envy a school that has one third the number of national championships as USC? You’re high and everyone here KNOWS that.

    BALONEY. Are you saying that Gainesville to Tallahassee is as far away as Ohio State to Miami, FLORIDA? That’s a damn big difference and YOU KNOW IT. If they can take a drive down the road to Tallahassee, why can’t they go to Ray Jay? Come on, tell everyone another bull crap excuse for them not going to Ray Jay, so they can envy Florida like you think that they do.

    Quite frankly you an idiot! This would not even be an issue with you if FSU was still a powerhouse.
    You take exception because FSU now blows and it kills you that there is no ooc powerhous that, right now, can knock us off.
    So I guess you would have us drop FSU and add a team of your choice and then, when and if FSU ever becomes good again, drop the new team for FSU.
    I don’t see you bitching about the Michigan – Notre Dame rivalry. Why don’t you look up the distance between their two campuses if you smart enough to know how to read a map!! Numnuts…

    Bullshit. In ODD years, USC plays Notre Dame in South Bend and for the most part, they ALSO leave the state to play ANOTHER out of conference game. In 2005, it was Hawaii. In 2007, in was Nebraska, in 2009, it was Ohio State. They played AT Arkansas in 2006, AT Virginia in 2008 and AT Hawaii this year. This is in ADDITION to playing a NINE game conference schedule while Florida plays an EIGHT game schedule that allows them 4 cream puffs while in odd years, USC get 1 and they’ll go to the other team’s home stadium to play a road game. Florida doesn’t even have the decency of giving USF a reach around and plays TWO games at home when they could do a home and away.
    I’m NOT saying that Florida has to give up its game against FSU, I’m saying that they COULD do an additional game OUT OF CONFERENCE and OUT OF GAINESVILLE but they won’t. Why is Florida AFRAID of playing outside of their stadium OR their state?
    In the first place, Michigan and Notre Dame play in DIFFERENT STATES — NUMB NUTS and you obviously haven’t seen much of what I’ve said before on the subject because I HAVE taken Michigan to task because they don’t leave the state except for their game against Notre Dame. FYI, the driving distance from Ann Arbor to South Bend is 180 miles while it’s 132 from Gainesville to Tampa. Why won’t the Gators go to Ray Jay? It’s 154 to Tallahassee so why can’t they go to Ray Jay? Why don’t they even try to go there in the OTHER years when FSU is a home game? Why are they afraid to play outside of Gainesville?

    @edgy1957:
    YOU are one stupid f**K!! So let me get this straight, playing OUT of state is more important than strength of schedule.
    If Florida played both Miami & FSU in the same year, you would still think it unfair, because both schools, perennial top 20 teams, are in state.
    So if FSU were located 50 miles away in another state it would be ok???
    By the way, you answered your own question dumbs**t, the difference in miles between Gainesville & Tallahassee is about the same as South Bend to Ann Arbor, but because they not crossing state lines, Florida is ducking people on their schedule?? To call you a f**king moron would be elevating your intelligence standing, but I’ll call you one anyway.
    Finally, your idiotic statements about USF. Your whole premise is that all the Florida fans could drive to Raymond James to fill the statdium!!! WTF????
    I can just see the correspondence now between the Schools!! Hey Foley, listen we can’t sell out our stadium but you come on down to OUR stadium and bring your fans so we can have a sell out!! No, no don’t play at home play here, even though it will be 80% of your fans. Sure make THEM travel instead of the team who can’t sell out.
    What freakin business school did you go to?? The Business School of Retards!! No AD in the country would enter into that type of contract.
    You are one stupid f**K!! But thanks for the excuse, next time Miami is bitching about us not playing them, I’ll let them know, it has nothing to do with them being a top 20 team; it’s because their located in the same state.
    Brilliant I say, just brilliant!!!

    ******************
    They breed them stupid in Gator land. You’ve completely missed that point and you’ve been with Betarded too long. My point is that Florida WON’T play the hard games on the road UNLESS they’re forced to because of their conference or their in-state rival. Outside of conference games (except against Georgia) and bowls, they DON’T leave the state. USC leaves the state every year, every other year to ND and another team and another team when they don’t play ND.
    Again, you MORON, FSU doesn’t figure into the whole argument. They are IN-STATE and they are the ONLY IN-STATE team that Florida plays in their stadium. As for USF, who gives a rat’s asshole whether THEY sell out their stadium. Are you telling me that if Florida actually played at Ray Jay that it would NOT be filled to the rafters: if not with USF fans but Gator fans? Are you saying that you people WON’T travel? I mean, you’ve already proven that you’ll travel to Tallahassee, which is a LONGER trip than to Ray Jay? Why is Florida afraid to play away from Gainesville?
    YOU, sir, are GATARDED. I AM NOT saying that has anything to do with Top 20 or anything? I’m saying: why is FLORIDA AFRAID TO PLAY AWAY FROM GAINESVILLE? Ok, GATARDED, how much simpler can I put it: they WON’T play AN OUT OF CONFERENCE game out of state and they could do it EVERY OTHER YEAR.

  49. edgy1957 says: Sep 16, 2010 8:10 PM

    BTW, Gatarded, should they fire the Miami AD for going to Columbus where 80% of the fans were from the other team or the Buckeyes’ AD for going to Miami where 80% of the fans are for the Hurricane? You can use the Gatarded excuse but the fact is that Oklahoma travels to Tulsa to play in a 31,000 seat stadium that is filled up with more OU fans so should they fire the AD there?

  50. Gatorfan1 says: Sep 16, 2010 10:51 PM

    @edgy1957:
    You are ONE stupid f**k. So it doesn’t matter what kind of a schedule they play, just as long as they TRAVEL outside the state???
    So Moron, if FSU was 50 miles north and located in Georgia, that would meet your requirement, right???
    Also dumbs**t, Having 3 powerhouse programs in the same state that don’t play in the same conference is UNIQUE to Florida. And remember, both Miami & FSU used to be independents.
    Name me another school that has rivalry’s in state that do not reside in the same conference??? Penn State – Pitt, Penn State won’t play them! Michigan – Michigan State, you probably don’t realize are in the same state. Texas – Oklahoma, same conference! Alabama – Auburn, same conference! Texas – Texas AM same state, if you don’t believe me and can’t figure it out look it up!! Michigan – Notre Dame, same distance in miles as Florida – FSU, but in your reasoning because no state borders are crossed, that makes all the difference. YOUR whole premise is based on that???
    And about USF, why SHOULD we have to fill up another rivals stadium, might as well play at home. Pretty simple, huh?
    Other people’s posts are right about you, your constantly made to look the fool and then go off in different tangients and never actually respond to a question. I took every one of your questions and answered them, not hard. You must have some real issues with your relationships with other people. You’ve got to be some kind of loner!! And no doubt you can’t figure it out, It’s about YOU dude!!
    You are a total idiot and talk so much s**t and have no earthly idea what the hell you are talking about!!!
