Nekkid FIU players cause brouhaha for Ron Turner

Ron Turner

Don’t worry; a new season is just a month and a half away.

In the latest story reeking of the offseason, USA Today reported that there was an “incident” involving several members of the FIU football program.  Per the report, the unnamed players were taking part in a team function at a local beach and decided to change their clothes.

In public.

The resulting ruckus created by the young men sans clothes prompted first year FIU head coach Ron Turner to issue a statement to the paper:

“Following the workout, some of our athletes went to rinse off at a designated public shower area and a few of them made a poor decision and changed their clothes in public.

“I want to apologize to the community and anyone who was at the beach this morning for this unfortunate incident. We are committed to helping our student athletes grow as gentlemen while preparing them for their careers.”

No charges will likely be filed against the players.

This incident continued what was a rough week for Turner and his FIU program.  Sunday, leading rusher Kendrick Rhodes was dismissed from the team after he was charged with discharging a weapon on school property, a second-degree felony.

Liberty at Kent State and North Carolina at South Carolina will kick off at six p.m. ET Aug. 29 to jumpstart the 2013 regular season and that day can’t get here soon enough

    Don’t worry… Even with the season well underway, one of these idiot “student”-athletes will find a way to get his name on the police blotter!

    @ classyjack

    I’ve always assumed that the reasons public nudity is so taboo in this country is a result of the first peoples to settle here from England, Puritans, were people who were so uptight they had to flee England.

    Quite a valid point billobrien. We definitely live in a Puritanical society where a lot of unnecessary and harmless things are considered taboo. It’s unfortunate.

    As i go about my day in public, there’s no doubt i’d want to see no more than 2% of the general population sans clothing.

    Then avert your eyes lol. We already have to avert our eyes at looking at hot chicks, lest we look like perverts. Basically the same principle. And I’m not saying everyone should just got around super naked all the time, but I think we take changing in public or god forbid, public urination, which gets you on the sex offenders list in some cases, way too seriously.
