Time served: Suspensions for three Gators washed away with the rain

Darious Cummings

Florida’s season-opening game with Idaho wasn’t the only thing that washed away in downpour that pelted Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday. Gators head coach Will Muschamp announced Monday that defensive tackle Darious Cummings, wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and defensive tackle Jay-nard Bostwick had satisfied their suspensions and would be eligible to play against Eastern Michigan this week despite the fact that they, you know, didn’t actually miss any time.

“They will be back this week with us,” Muschamp told ESPN.com. “Not just as far as the suspension of a game, but they’ve handled a lot of other things for me, as well as Demarcus Robinson, who had a university sanction that’s been resolved.”

Considering the suspensions weren’t even announced until Saturday afternoon, the Gators trio has to have set some sort of record for shortest time spent in the timeout corner.

Cummings and Bostwick were suspended for unspecified violations of team rules, while Robinson was cited for the equally vague “university sanctions”.

Cummings and Bostwick were listed as the top two nose tackles on Florida’s Week 1 depth chart. The former started six of the 11 games he appeared in a year ago, while Bostwick was set to appear in his first career game after redshirting his freshman season in 2013. Robinson played in seven games and nabbed five receptions for 23 yards as a true freshman a year ago.

No decision has been made as to whether or not to reschedule the Gators-Vandals tilt. Florida and Idaho share an off week on Oct. 25, but neither side seems interested in playing on that date. Probably has something to do with the fact that it’d be a one-sided, cross-country non-conference game during the middle of the season. Idaho head coach Paul Petrino broached the idea today of rescheduling for early December provided, obviously, that Florida does not reach the SEC title game.

If the game does indeed get rescheduled, we know where Florida’s Wrist Slap Three will be – on the field.

    What a croc (get it?). Man, I thought some of this shady stuff stopped when Meyer left.

    Remember, when he would put people in a boot on gameday whenever they failed a drug test…that was some creative shadiness.

    Gotta love the Gates…

    Hey jimmy53, worry about your low-character QB.
    You have no room to judge when Tallahassee PD is in FSU’s pocket.

    Jimmy,

    It’s an sec thing.

  4. barkleyblows says: Sep 1, 2014 8:05 PM

    It’s the SECheat. Why are ppl surprised?

  5. swampcannons says: Sep 1, 2014 8:05 PM

    Beating B1G teams is also an SEC thing.
    Funny jrs45 complains about trolls yet he’s one of the biggest.

  6. swampcannons says: Sep 1, 2014 8:06 PM

    Hope Urb’s ticker holds out for you buckeye losers.

    swampcannon:

    First: hahaha–a Gator talking about character–LOL!

    Second: Listen man, don’t be pissy just because you need your players off of suspension so you can compete with mighty Eastern Michigan.

    Third: There’s a five win minimum to post on this board.

    I still can’t believe how bad y’all sucked last year-
    4-8!

    You’ll never live down two O-linemen blocking each other! But don’t worry, I saw the same thing happen this past weekend–of course it was a pee-wee game, and their record was better than 4-8.

  8. watchfullhose says: Sep 1, 2014 8:19 PM

    I blame Urban Meyer

  9. swampcannons says: Sep 1, 2014 8:39 PM

    @jimmy53:
    Can’t believe how bad y’all sucked from 2000-2013. Funny how that’s ancient history now.
    34-22 all time jackass.
    Keep thinking UF is really bad, it’ll make it that much more enjoyable when fsu gets worked @ Ron Zook Field.

  10. jrs45 says: Sep 1, 2014 9:06 PM

    I only troll loser gator fans. Hey last time I checked FSU never lost to a Georgia southern team in those years lol.

  11. jimmy53 says: Sep 1, 2014 9:10 PM

    swampcannon:

    5 WIN MINIMUM TO POST ON THIS BOARD.

    I don’t make the rules chief—don’t let your jorts chafe ya on your way out…

    PS- We never went 4-8. That’s just embarrassing–like give up the game of football embarrassing…

    AFLAC Trivia Question:

    What team is so repugnant that their own coach faked an “illness” so he could leave?

    I’ll give you a hint: 4-8

    4-8 lol, just shameful.

  13. jrs45 says: Sep 1, 2014 9:14 PM

    Hey you leave Urban out of this!

  14. swampcannons says: Sep 1, 2014 9:56 PM

    Hey you two having fun stroking each other?
    Good deal. Enjoy the laughs now, it’ll be coming to an end soon.

  15. jimmy53 says: Sep 1, 2014 10:10 PM

    C’mon Swampcannon, I’m giving you pearls and you’re dropping deuces. Do better.

    Here’s one to get you started:

    The Gators suck so bad even the rain beats them.

    0-1 so far this season

  16. jimmy53 says: Sep 1, 2014 10:17 PM

    And just a lil extra piss for your coffee:

    FSU: (1947) UF: (1906)
    .674 Win % .633 win %
    .643 bowl win % .500 bowl win %
    3 NC 3 NC
    17 Conf. titles 8 conf. titles
    3 Heismans 3 Heismans
    38 All Amer. 31 All Amer.

    FSU has 499 total wins, and UF has 504

    and we gave you a 41 year head start

  17. jimmy53 says: Sep 1, 2014 10:18 PM

    Oh, and 4-8

    (drops mic and walks out)

  18. atlbraves91 says: Sep 1, 2014 10:20 PM

    You do realize fsu has lost to 20 div 2 teams.

  19. jimmy53 says: Sep 1, 2014 10:21 PM

    atlbraves91:

    and we still have better stats than UF in all of those categories.

    You score no points today…

  20. atlbraves91 says: Sep 1, 2014 10:25 PM

    Just saying you bring up our only loss to a div 2 team and fsu fans get amnesia when you bring up their losses to schools like u. Of Tampa, Cumberland, erskine. I mean have you even heard of these football teams before. Oh and yea sure 17 conf champs in the acc who the hell plays in the acc again I can’t even remember.

  21. houndofthebaskervols says: Sep 1, 2014 10:35 PM

    So they got to wait out the rain delay in street clothes. Not a bad deal.

  22. vibramed says: Sep 1, 2014 10:36 PM

    First of all morons…they should pay them and let them smoke weed…I know what happened and it was failure to attend class…oh Winston breaks the law and steals crab legs and he gets a baseball suspension…whatever.

  23. jrs45 says: Sep 2, 2014 12:49 AM

    Don’t shoot the messenger but…word is uf rescheduled the Idaho game for bowl season.

  24. swampcannons says: Sep 2, 2014 3:28 AM

    ^^^
    Still a tougher opponent than anyone on OSU’s schedule there dbag. Obviously still butthurt over that 41-14 romping in front of a national audience. Keep trolling while the rest of us have lives there loser.

  25. timdixie59 says: Sep 2, 2014 5:40 AM

    Really muschump. Wow you are such a mean guy.

  26. jrs45 says: Sep 2, 2014 8:52 AM

    It’s all about Urban and how you guys can’t let him go Chump Chump!

  27. iammrbinky says: Sep 2, 2014 11:22 AM

    I thought scUM left Florida for Columbus.

  28. adambruce88 says: Sep 2, 2014 12:58 PM

    meyers looked at OSU schedule and decided who needs football, just make cupcakes.

  29. jrs45 says: Sep 2, 2014 2:24 PM

    Who is Meyers?

  30. florida727 says: Sep 2, 2014 2:27 PM

    Even as a Gator fan, I have trouble with this one. This is way too easy an “out”. How about a little accountability? This is no punishment at all. What did the rule-breakers learn from this? Their punishment was watching it rain? Pretty lame, coach.

  31. kaspauf says: Sep 2, 2014 3:17 PM

    ^^^ I don’t, Jameis sits out 3 whole baseball games for shop lifting plus all the other things this clown has down off the football field….

  32. sportsfan18 says: Sep 2, 2014 5:55 PM

    Will Mustsavemyjob is doing what he can to keep the millions coming to him…

    Gators fans are gonna be calling for Zook before long…

    I mean Zook didn’t lose to an FBS at the Swamp…

    Zook didn’t lose to an FBS school at the Swamp without that team completing even one forward pass…

    The Zookster was 2nd, 1st and 3rd in the conference his 3 seasons. Went to a bowl game all 3 seasons.

    Had a .621% winning percentage.

    Will Bustchamp has been there 3 yrs so far… let’s compare him to the Zookster, who they ran out of town for his poor performance…

    Zookster… ZERO losing seasons.

    Zookster… 16 & 8 in conf play

    Willies numbers…

    13 & 11 in conference play. Not quite 16 & 8 I see. Advantage Zook.

    1 losing season. Advantage Zook.

    .579 winning percentage. not quite like Zook’s .621% winning percentage. Advantage Zook.

    yet Zook got run out of town and Willie Bustchamp is still around?

    Slipping standards…

  33. ndrick731 says: Sep 2, 2014 9:07 PM

    This is why they schedule cream puffs at the beginning of the season. Get all those nasty suspensions out of the way against teams that couldn’t beat their 2nd team.
