Oh no, he didn't: Dunlap is latest Gator charged

Posted on: December 1, 2009 10:06 am
 

This wouldn’t be such a big deal if Brandon Spikes didn't ultimately decide his sentence.

This wouldn’t near as big a thing if, you know, Florida weren’t playing for the SEC title.

Heads might turn the other way if there wasn’t a recent history in Gainesville, if the football world weren’t waiting to see what Urban Meyer was going to do with his latest star run afoul of the law.

But it is a big deal, a huge deal. Carlos Dunlap, you messed up. You went Tony LaRussa on the entire Gator Nation by getting one of the sloppiest DUI’s in recent memory.

Asleep at the wheel?

With the engine running?

While the car was in gear? 

3:25 in the morning?

Dude, that’s not drunk. That’s falling down, can’t-count-backwards-fro-100 drunk. Allegedly, of course. Certainly not exactly what you expect, though, from the BCS title game defensive MVP and one of the team leaders. Not what you want from the guy tied for the team lead in sacks (seven).  A guy who could be a first-round draft choice.

Carlos, aren’t you supposed to celebrate after beating Alabama? Another stomp of the Seminoles hardly seems worth the Captain Morgan.

But as coaches like to say, hey, they’re still college kids.

This college kid put his team at further risk of losing the SEC championship game. If Dunlap is suspended – a big if given recent history – I have this image of Trent Richardson and Mark Richardson sweeping around the end. Dunlap’s absence would give tight end Colin Peek, a Florida guy from Ponte Vedra Beach, more room. Obviously, it would have to easier protecting Greg McElroy.

The next step is up to Meyer. After the way he handled the Spikes situation, he absolutely cannot go light on Dunlap. That’s what happens when the star linebacker has to suspended himself. Remember that one after the eye gouge? Spikes was suspended for a half (laughable), then Spikes took himself out of the entire game.

If the Florida coach stops short of anything less than a one-game suspension in this case, then the SEC may step in.

I’m kidding, of course, on the SEC thing. The outrage from outside the program would be enough of a distraction. The Urbanator is smart enough to limit the damage. See ya, Carlos. We’ll check in with you, maybe, in the BCS title game or the Sugar Bowl.

FSU is too busy finding new ways to cheat on tests to go out and have a good time drinking.

How about stating the facts!!!  It took Parker getting arrested for the THIRD time to be dismissed.  His DUI came after his arrest(s) for weapons, drugs, & theft.  The majority of the Florida arrests (23 to be exact) have been for minor violations, with the worst being for a weapons charge on a player who was kicked off the team.  If you look back through the years at some of the arrests of FSU players, some of the charges range from aggrivated battery on a law enforcement officer to sexual battery.  So it's apples & oranges..................

Whatever happens to Dunlap, he should consider himself lucky he didn't kill anyone.

Given the level of intoxication it would take to be passed out at the wheel, he could be charged with a felony. This is serious stuff.

Dodd took his profile down

Both Gregg Doyel and Dodd went to Gutter Land.

So really, who's worse here?  Also, take into account that FSU HASN'T had about 25 people arrested in the past 4 years from their team.


You also haven't won anything of note in the past 4 years, so you can zip your pie hole.

Well this big black eye will become a scar that never heals if Urban doesn't do the right thing. This kid messed up, but he gave up all of his rights the moment he stepped behind the wheel DRUNK!!! Lets not forget that if he had hit another car and killed somebody, the last thing on his mind would be the football game, and he probably would be in jail for a long time. (Actually probably not because he is an athlete for a NC program, but that is a tangent for a different day.) But like I said, Urban better do the right thing and suspend the kid from the game and future bowl game and get some help with his drinking problems. It will keep Urban from looking like a complete tool, and it couldn't be any worse than what could of happened to that kid.

" have this image of Trent Richardson and Mark Richardson sweeping around the end. Dunlap’s"

Are there no editors left in this world? Shouldn't this say Ingram, you know, like Heisman candidate and All-American. Oh, well.

Dodd is a Florida alumnus NITWIT and Douche!

This article is a joke. Dunlap should be out for the season as well as Spikes. Passed out DRUNK at the wheel at a traffic light. DUDD will not criticize his alma mater. Meyer is a joke as well. Discipline to Meyer is to not let players have dessert.
