Urban Meyer received some, ahem, praise from a former player yesterday but it’s doubtful that it’s the kind of praise he’d want. Ex-Gator defensive back Janoris Jankins — booted by Will Muschamp after a pair of back-to-back marijuana arrests — is starting over at North Alabama. In his view, he wouldn’t be at North Alabama if Meyer were still running the Florida program:
“No doubt, if Coach Meyer were still coaching, I’d still be playing for the Gators. Coach Meyer knows what it takes to win.”
Meaning weed? Or meaning the ability to look the other way when a star player gets busted for weed?
Perhaps that’s why Meyer’s players rolled up some 30 arrests in Alachua County on his watch. When there’s no fear of punishment, there’s no reason for one to stop “dabbling in the illicits” as a friend of mine used to say.
