SI's Urban Meyer Video Series Is Up

SI has been talking about this series of videos about Urban Meyer for months, and they're finally up. They cover his 2009 resignation, health problems, and history as a coach.

Janoris Jenkins Cited for Marijuana Possession

Of all the things that made Urban Meyer's record at Florida sterling, his track record of keeping players out of trouble was not part of it. Little more than a month onto the job, Will Muschamp now has to face a disciplinary issue of his own. Janoris Jenkins, who turned down an opportunity to be a first round draft pick to return to Florida, was cited by Gainesville police for marijuana possession. It's a second offense for Jenkins, who was arrested for affray and resisting arrest without violence in 2009. The answer, by the way, is FAU. Should Jenkins be suspended a game, he'll miss Florida's opener against FAU. Game 2 is against UAB.

A "Big Time Coach" on the Pressure Urban Meyer Faced

ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski got an unnamed "big time coach" to talk about the pressures that high profile college coaches like Urban Meyer face. It doesn't have any bombshells in it, but it's a view from the side of the job that none of us will ever know. And yeah, this is going to be it for me today. As you can probably understand, I don't have much else on my mind today football-wise besides the vacancy at UF. The last thing the Internet needs is another column about it, so I'm just passing this along for now.

Back at Practice: Your Daily Tebow Update

Tim Tebow was back at practice today. This lines up with the timetable set forth by the training staff, as Tebow's last symptom was a headache a week ago. He did not go through any hitting drills but only did some running and throwing. According to Urban Meyer, he's been doing conditioning the past couple days without any concussion symptoms recurring. He will continue to be monitored because if any symptoms return, the countdown resets. He is not cleared to play yet and will undergo more tests tomorrow morning. His primary medical team includes a neurosurgeon at the UF Shands hospital and the consultants on his case include the assistant director of the Sports Medicine Concussion Program at the University of Pittsburgh.

Jenkins Likely to Have Charges Thrown Out

Janoris Jenkins, Florida's freshman All-American corner, is likely to have his charges thrown out after being arrested during a fight in downtown Gainesville. His was the 24th arrest that somehow became the magic tipping point for floods of articles about Gators being arrested. Robbie Andreu of the Gainesville Sun says that a suspension is unlikely if this comes to pass. That would be consistent with past discipline under Meyer. Even if he did get a one or two game suspension, what's it matter against Charleston Southern or Troy?

A List of Florida's 24 Arrests Under Meyer

The Orlando Sentinel has compiled a list of all 24 of the arrests that have occurred at UF since Urban Meyer arrived. By my count: Twelve had charges stick, or had charges dropped in exchange for probation, community service, or pre-trial intervention. In all cases, the player involved was suspended at least a game and eight were either suspended indefinitely or kicked off the team. Nine had charges dropped, dismissed, or not pressed at all with no further court actions. No one in this category was suspended, though a couple had other punishments (loss of captaincy for Tony Joiner, "physical punishment" and denial of bowl gifts for Jermaine Cunningham). That leaves three left. John Curtis had charges dropped after complying with court ordered community service and probation. However, he was already both injured and in Meyer's doghouse, so it's impossible to tell if an official suspension was issued or not. One of Ronnie Wilson's arrests occurred while he was off the team and out of school, so I'm not sure why it counts towards the total. Finally, Janoris Jenkins' case is still in process.
