    Another headache for Urban Meyer.

    Are they sure it was not "time to diet?"

    Joking aside, this guy needs some quiet time off the field.

    Some actions aren't deserving of a second chance.

    Time to revoke the scholarship. He admitted to sending the text and the girl said he issued another death threat on the phone. Send this kid packing back to Lakeland.

    If they cared about the kid and not the football player, they would suspend him from the team and get him help through the university.

    If not, he will just hurt another woman down the road if he is sent packing.

    If he wasn't a player, he'd be getting help through the prison system. It's not the role of a university to teach people how to not stalk women.

    What number arrest is this since Meyer started recruiting kids with "top 1% of the top1%" of character?

    30? 31?

    If you go to your HR department and tell them you are an alcoholic and need help that would involve the health insurance provided, I think they are required to help you. Unsure of the cost, but I don't think they can turn their back on you either.

    It might be too late now for him, but just tossing him aside, if the courts don't throw him in prison, does not seem right to me.

    Agreed. However, those are concerns for someone who actually cares about the kid. Most here don't. Most UF fans don't. UF coaches and AD staff might or might not, but I'm sure they care about their own reps more so that will control.
