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.

Imagine a Florida football player having a felony committed against him, I thought the players only committed felonies.
