From a greg doyle article after the Chris Rainey Arrest...
"Sickening. Meyer talks about the Florida football family, but the only father he reminds me of is the one who can't control his kids. Rainey was the 25th Florida player arrested under Meyer's watch, or maybe he was the 27th, or maybe he was the 30th.
All three figures have been reported because the truth is, so many Gators have been arrested that it's hard to keep up. Let's give Meyer the benefit of the doubt and go with 25 -- which is 24 more than have been arrested in four years under coach Randy Shannon at Miami.
See, this stuff can be stopped. It's not impossible, and it would require tough love -- kicking players off the team after being charged with a crime, no questions asked, after the 10th or 15th or 20th arrest. After Rainey's arrest on Sept. 14, Meyer said he was "real upset" and then vowed, "enough's enough."
Then the Gators lost two consecutive games. Florida gained 281 yards against Alabama on Oct. 2, and its offense was even worse in the loss to LSU, totaling just 243.
That was Saturday.
Chris Rainey was back with the team Sunday.
Transparent. And dishonest. Off the field, Meyer considers the "core values" of his program to be three no-nos -- no stealing, no drugs, no weapons -- and two affirmatives. Honesty is one. Respect for women is the other.
On the field, Meyer has other core values. I'm not playing with words, either. This is what Meyer said Monday, bemoaning his team's offensive struggles:
"The lack of explosive plays," he said, which "were something we set a trademark for around here. We're void of those right now. We're not having those home-run shots. [That] and, obviously, taking care of the football ... those are the core values of our program on how to win a game."
What we have here is a collision of core values. Last month Chris Rainey told a woman it was "time to die" -- but Rainey also has four career runs of at least 60 yards, and three others of 33 yards or longer.
Respect for women vs. explosive plays.
You see which core value matters more at Florida.
Urban Meyer is a bad guy, man. He's a bad guy."

Forgive me if I don't put too much stock in a Greg Doyel article...
If he was unable to ever write an article again, I'd have a beer in celebration.
"PSU a 3 to 4 win team" - New-era, September 2012
Did not read.
I've learned a few things over the years....
1. Don't rush to judgement. Austin Scott...
2. Dont believe everything the media dishes out as certainty. Freeh report.
3. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Stones meet glass house.

Wonder what the latest on Roby is
We all know what Florida"s "core values" were when Urbz was in charge in Gainesville.
@CFTalk: Report: Hyde did hit/slap alleged assault victim http://t.co/I3jcFqH7Tw
"I'm a Pennsylvania boy with a Penn State heart" JF
Welp. This should get interesting. If Meyer really holds, "never hit a female" true for his "values"... Seems like Hyde did violate that. Should be interesting to see. We all know Meyer's default position on player "punishment"...
