As Aaron Hernandez finds himself a suspect in the homicide of a Boston man and the subject of ridiculous media coverage, Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel has released details of another shooting investigation that occurred while the tight end attended the University of Florida in 2007.
When Hernandez was at UF, he was once questioned, along with three other Gator football players, about a shooting in Gainesvile. None of the players were arrested, but detectives questioned Hernandez in the shootings of Corey Smith and Justin Glass about 2:30 a.m. after Florida lost to Auburn in 2007. According to a Sentinel report at the time, police said Smith, 28, and Glass, 19, were driving around in traffic about 2:30 a.m. Sunday when a man began shooting into their car. Smith was critically wounded in the head while Glass was shot in the arm.
Hernandez declined to discuss the case with reporters back then and was never charged with any crime.
The Urban Meyer era in Gainesville was marred by a long list of varying criminal charges and investigations, as at least 25 of his players were arrested between 2005 and 2010. In 2009, the Sentinel called local defense attorney Huntley Johnson the team's "defensive MVP" for his work in handling a majority of the student-athletes' cases. After taking the Ohio State job in November 2011, Meyer said that the arrests during his time at Florida were “exaggerated."

What's up with the University? How do they let the Football program (Urbz) get away with that?
As long as you are winning nothing else matters
This. Urb does good work if you ask me.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
So tell me, UGA had more arrests then us while Urban was here. And they have no Crystal Balls, yet they get the pass. People just love to hate UF, flattering
Spurrier does not give UGA a pass.
I still dont get how we whopped y'all, y'all whopped UGA. Yet we lose to UGA by 8, and was 1 yd from tying the game. CFB baffles me sometimes
Because when Don Corleone(Meyer) doesn't want something to leave the family, it doesn't. The mafia is a self policing unit
Urban Meyer is a great coach no doubt. But IMO, his care and concern for people starts and ends with himself. But he's not the first and surely won't be the last.
well I don't think anyone was expecting 3 fumbled kick returns and you guys being up 21-0 with 19 total yards lol.
No. people love to hate OSU. Which is why this was just released during Meyer's tenure hereand not while at UF. See how this works?
arrest for unpaid parking ticket = murder IMO
We fumbled our first play, a punt return, and a kick return to give up a 21 point deficit on less than 30 yards of offense. Most people hit reset when that happens because it only happens in video games.
That's all I heard the entire article. Get over it. Florida has players arrested, so does everyone else.
Telling stat. Since the end of the NFL season 27 NFL players have been arrested for felonies. You can blame Urban. You can blame UF. But why don't you start with society and no good fathers who abandon their kids.

I think if we learned anything last year it was probably that LSU, UF, UGA, SC, and TAMU could probably all beat each other on any given day depending on how the ball bounced.
Muschamp is a good man to come in and clean up this mess...
Urbz did not have the balls to kick off a contributer

No more Garcia. Shaw doesn't want booze and chicks, he wants TDs.
I'm not blaming him for anything. Just saying he's a self centered POS who doesn't care about anyone but himself. That's his right though. I don't think any coach in America could have changed the path Hernandez was on.
Hernandez's parents were probably illegals and should have been deported long ago and the whole thing would have taken place in Mexico City.
True, but at some point people have to give us credit for CAUSING those fumbles. Purifoy made a great play and stripped the ball the 1st play of the game. When Honey Badger was doing it at LSU he was great and everyone loved him. When our guys caused fumbles last yr it was all luck lol. I just dont get it, gotta give us some credit
Yea Champ came down hard quick, we have had like 14 kids arrested since he took over. Only 3 remain on the team if I remember correctly, and kicking Janoris Jenkins off the team was when we knew he wasnt playin games
yeah it takes a real set to kick jenkins off your team knowing hes your best defensive player. champ definately doesnt play around
FSU Ambassador to the masses
Wouldn't doubt it. Urban was a total scumbag and hid things that none of us could have ever imagined happening at UF. Foley prides himself in running a clean ship, from lacrosse to football. We wouldn't consistently be in the top 5 of the Directors Cup without at least one program being sniffed by the NCAA for illegal practices if Foley let things get loose. Urban was ruling things his own way, and behind closed doors. It's crazy how little leaked with some of this. I literally would enjoy that man never being allowed back on campus. He left at the perfect time.
heart troubles IMO
Urbz would lick Jenkins B-Hole. No way he kicks off a kid with a bubble butt.
