Starting Gator DB popped for underage drinking

Yaaawwwnnn… another day, news of another member of the Florida Gators football program being arrested has surfaced.

According to Rachel George of the Orlando Sentinel, UF cornerback Marcus Roberson was arrested Sept. 14 and charged with (gasp!!!) underage drinking.  The charge is, obviously, a misdemeanor.

Roberson was arrested in the parking lot of an on-campus residence hall after he was found to be in possession of a bottle of Four Loko.

“The coaching staff was aware of the incident and it has been handled internally,” a UF spokesperson told George.

The true freshman has started all seven of the Gators’ games this season.  It’s unclear what punishment, if any, the four-star member of UF’s 2011 recruiting class will face from the program, although the fact that the incident happened more than a month ago suggests that no missed playing time is in order.  UF is on a bye this weekend ahead of their annual rivalry game with Georgia Oct. 29.

As noted by the Sentinel, Roberson is the seventh Gator to be arrested this calendar year.  One of those arrests came two days prior to Roberson’s; linebacker Dee Finley was initially charged Sept. 12 for driving with a suspended license and resisting an officer with violence.  Finley was suspended for the Tennessee game Sept. 17 and ultimately “decided” to transfer from the program.

    More evidence that Muschamp can’t fill the shoes of Urban Meyer. Only seven arrests so far this year? Woefully behind pace …

    you mean to tell me that a D1 athlete is drinking four loko and not ciroc, patron or something else? He must be at the wrong school

    CFT Article on Sept 14

    Roosevelt Maggitt didn’t want his son to go to UF his exact words were:

    “I see guys get up there and then they get pulled over for nonsense”

    I think he was right about this one, this whole case was bogus. I’ve been to UF’s campus before everybody drinks.
