Janoris Jenkins busted with pot again

Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins has once again been busted by Gainesville police for marijuana possession. Barely more than a month after Jenkins appeared in a courtroom to deal with an arrest for marijuana possession, Jenkins was caught with a joint in his car early Saturday morning. According to the St. Petersburg Times, Jenkins had been smoking a cigar in a car parked in a parking lot. When Jenkins saw the police, he put the cigar down, got out of the car and walked away.

The police then found the cigar in the center console of the car and found that it was not filled with tobacco. According to the Gainesville police department, Jenkins was given a notice to appear in court for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.

What remains to be seen is how this will be handled by Florida. Jenkins did not serve any kind of suspension due to his first marijuana arrest, as he was already missing spring practice following shoulder surgery. Still, new head coach Will Muschamp has said that he plans on instilling a new culture in Gainesville, and one that doesn't turn a blind eye as often as Urban Meyer seemed to.

Another factor to keep in mind, while Jenkins has been nailed with weed twice in the last three months, this is his third arrest since coming to Florida. He was also arrested for resisting arrest and getting into a fight outside a Gainesville night club in May 2009. I'm not sure Muschamp will take that offense into consideration seeing as how it took place before he came to Florida, but you have to think that being arrested twice in three months is not the best way to introduce yourself to your new head coach.

There's a good chance that if Muschamp decides to make an example of somebody, then it could be Jenkins.

You don't know what you are talking about, Miami Football has been exemplary in recent years as far as behavior is concerned.  The football on the otherhand, not as much.

Les Miles would have already thrown this guy out, while Ohio State would make him a coach.  Florida has a past under Meyers more like Tressell than Miles; let's see if Muschamp (a former LSU Offensive cooridnator) acts more like his old boss or the thug he replaced.  If this kid isn't tossed then we all know that Muschamp is a liar.

Confusing statement coming from a Gaytor lover...either u have been living under a rock or been high yourself for a while, but 1 arrest at The U in the last five years and what 33 (or some outrageous number) and counting in Gainesville...Urban, while winning, was a disgrace off the field for the way he took care of this kind of business...last time I checked, it didn't happen that way in Miami.

Not that we were winning anything either, but at least we could count on the kids following the letter of the law...up north, anything goes, and trust me, u don't have to pay the time for the crime...Urban needed to win.  And when that stopped, so did he...

U gaytors are all the same...

Another goater arrested?

The viagra pills by Luis Murphy a few weeks back.

The DUI by Parsons.

The arrest of 2 gator basketball players and the team manager for breaking and entering into cars.

Now this.

They are sure winning the Fullmer Cup Standings.

Most dirty program in the nation. BY FAR.

 Next time roll up the window and lock the doors before you walk away, can't search your shit for smoking a cigar. Either way, clearly a dumb arse, kick him to the curb and get someone in there that gives a shit about playing football.

If laws are inconvenient ignor them, they don't apply to you. To be caught twice is just stupid and Jenkins has no respect for anyone or anything. His disrespect for the law should earn him expulsion from school. If you don't like the law change it. Otherwise accept it and the conciquences that come with breaking it.

If Jenkins isn't removed from the team, I will lose a little bit of respect for coach Muschamp. The best way to put out a fire is to put it out when it starts small and not let it grow out of control (see Urban Meyer). There is plenty of talent on the team that it won't hurt to let him go. Although I hate to see it happen, there needs to be a message sent to the team.

I'll be blunt.  It's high time Janoris learns to do it at home where there aren't cops walking around.
