Florida suspends two players for Saturday's game vs MI


As if that wasn't damaging enough to their chances on Saturday, Wednesday they announced the suspension of leading rusher Jordan Scarlett as well as another wide receiver on the roster in Rick Wells. When the suspension for Callaway, Davis, Desir-Jones, Houston, Miller, Smith and Telfort was announced, a Florida spokesperson said the players "were suspended for using school-issued, cost-of-attendance credit cards to buy electronics from the school bookstore and then selling those items for cash".

Freshman James Robinson also is suspended following his August 21 citation for marijuana possession.

Star receiver Antonio Callaway headlined the group of players previously involved in the incident.

UF did not disclose the nature of their violations, but they stem from the same misuse of university-related financial cards that will keep seven other Gators out of the game.

Scarlett and Callaway are by far the two most significant players who will be missing from the game.




In all seriousness, though, being without your leading rusher AND receiver for a game against Jim Harbaugh and MI, no matter how many starters they lost from last season, is very much less than ideal.

Callaway is one of Florida's most risky weapons on offense, accounting for 721 yards and three touchdowns, along with 218 yards returning.

Like Callaway, Scarlett and Wells have been in trouble before. Scarlett missed the Citrus Bowl game against the Wolverines after he was cited on a complaint of marijuana possession.

Feldman reported that none of the suspended players have been charged with anything since the investigation is still ongoing.
