Chris Rainey's BCS ring stolen

College football players just can't seem to hold onto their personal memorabilia these days. While some players like to sell their rings and charms, others, like Florida running back Chris Rainey, have lost theirs to thieves. The apartment of Rainey and his teammate Moses Jenkins was broken into on Sunday morning according to a report in The Gainesville Sun. Rainey's BCS title ring from the 2008 season was just one of the things stolen from the apartment.

The house where University of Florida players Chris Rainey and Moses Jenkins live was broken into Sunday morning, according to the Gainesville Police Department. The items reported stolen include Rainey's 2008 National Championship ring, 10 pairs of Jenkins' shoes, a Gucci duffel bag, a television and a Sony PlayStation.

Lt. David Rowe said Rainey, a running back, and Moses, a fifth-year cornerback, left their home in the 3300 block of Southwest 42nd Street around 6 a.m. Sunday. The break-in was reported by a girlfriend, who found the back door of the home kicked it at about 11 a.m., Rowe said.

No word on whether or not Rainey received a text message prior to the break in reading "Time to steal...your championship ring." Though I doubt he did, because then Rainey probably would have taken it with him when leaving the apartment.

UofF. How about those five Gator losses last year? I guess all of the cheating and thugs on the team wasn't enough to make your team worth a $h!t. Maybe one day the Gators will go undefeated. Oh I know, they play in the SEC, so it's impossible to go undefeated during the BCS era.......unless you're Tennessee, Alabama, or Auburn(twice). The Gators have accomplished nothing of significance. They are a flash in the pan. Here today gone tomorrow. They've done nothing to shape the college football landscape. 20 years from now there will be no ESPN special or movie made about this group of human waste...except maybe a "whatever happened to?" about Tim Tebow or a program about when the Gators won their two BCS titles they failed to erase doubt by not being undefeated in seasons that featured teams that did go undefeated. Having fun rooting for your team. Just make sure if you're in Gainesville get home before the sun goes down lest the Gator football team decides to go on the prowl. Later chump... Or should I say chomp?

He pawned it for money  :)  The truth will come out.  He staged a fake robbery.  The robber took it to the pawn shop in return for a cut of the money.  More to be revealed.

Hopefully whoever commited this heinous crime will have to sit out the first half of the day at their place of employment and will only be allowed to come back after lunch time to work the rest of their shift. I'm sure all Gator and former Gator football players would agree that that is a severe and fitting punishment....one that should bring Rainey closure and peace of mind from the incident.



says the gold toothed miami fan who likes a team who can only be good when they cheat and recruit all thugs.....no thugs, no cheating, well we see where miami sits....arfound .500 like the rest of th eaverage at best programs...have fun next year at 6-6 loser

To Tom Fornelli -

   The last line on your story was extremely unprofessional and uncalled for. You wrote : "No word on whether or not Rainey received a text message prior to the break in reading "Time to steal...your championship ring." Though I doubt he did, because then Rainey probably would have taken it with him when leaving the apartment."

   The kid paid his price for that and it should be left out of articles such as this one. Are you gonna remind him of that when he's 60? I mean, is it now a "journalists" job to take cheap jabs at people who have messed up and then paid their price to society? It reeks of jealously, quite honestly. You should issue a formal apology, but I really doubt you will.

I hope that was a joke, 'the_product', cause there's nothing wrong with college kids having gucci bags. You don't even know how much (or little) it cost. Hell, it could of beeen a gift for a birthday or x-mas or something.
