Preston Parker Arrested

Continuing the theme of this site, I am posting something anti-FSU. After this past season for Canes football, and for South Florida sports in general, I need the occasional laugh to keep me going. So tough luck, Noles fans.

Anyway, Preston Parker got arrested for gun and drug charges today. The 21 year old receiver was one of those Bobby Bowden specials I often talk about here. He was all but a Cane but somehow out of the blue committed to FSU at the last second. He's been their best receiver recently, so this is going to hurt big time. Unless of course the Noles manage to sweep this under the rug and not punish him at all. I would hope they know to act quickly especially with the spotlight on them after the recent academic scandal.

The biggest issue I have with this is the gun. Why do all these young athletes insist on carrying guns? Dee Webb had an arsenal under his bed! What in the world did he have planned? Protection is one thing. Carrying to feel cool. Come on. FSU-bias aside, he had a weapon. He should be kicked off the team. And I'd say that about guys that played for UF and USF as well.

If this would have happen to a cane you know it the headline on espn would have said "thug-u does it again"... this is probably just gonna get downplayed as if nothing happens. Trust me, from a guy that goes to FSU, you try your hardest not to walk around Burt Reynolds (the housing were most football players live in) because you know something like this might happen. Bull gator hit in on the nose man, he was carrying a gun. From a guy that lives up in Tally, trust me, you don't need a gun especially if your a football player. This guy deserves to be thrown out of school man.

Exactly. I haven't lived in Gainesville for a while now, but you definitely don't need enough guns to storm the beach at Normandy. A super soaker is more than enough protection.

He'll be suspended for the first two games and thats it. Just check the schedule and you'll know why
