Envy and jealousy: Bad Gatorz edition

From a column at SunSentinel.com about the double standard in play regarding the large number of players who’ve run afoul of the law at Florida (h/t The Wiz) comes this gem of a line:

Nobody at Sports Illustrated is saying the Florida team picture should be taken from the front and the side.

No they’re not.  But I wish I had.  Well played, Mr. Hyde.


UPDATE: Make that twenty four (h/t EDSBS)

    UF definitely should be getting a worse rap than they do. Goebbels must run their PR. When you think about it, they manage to get into the BCS game magically, and they have kids getting arrested for weapons with no reprimands.

    UGA has the childish Rhodes Scholar commercials, gets left out of the BCS and gets lambasted for having kids speeding on scooters. We need a better propaganda minister.

    My take, every sports columnist in the state of Florida is a gainesville alum. Every beat writer that wants to be a columnist knows they better tread lightly on the ‘turds.

    Inversely, every Red and Black alum, and Banner-Herald for that matter, do everything they can to over compensate for their UGA ties and break the big negative story on UGA.

    I really have know facts to back this up, but in the age of Obama, my feelings are more important than facts.

    St. Tebow puts “John 3:16” on his eyeblack and cuts orphans’ foreskins and everyone overlooks the criminal behavior.

    I think I’ve commented here before on the unbelievable pass Florida gets for it’s players behavior. There are some Bulldogs who have pulled boneheaded stunts, but I’m pretty sure date rape and firing an assault weapon out a dorm window weren’t among them. Florida has some real thugged out jerk-offs among it’s ranks, yet it’s Mark Richt getting grilled over player behavior.


    • But these are the top 1% of 1%. Corch Meyers couldn’t possibly be wrong when it comes to character evaluation. He’s perfect, don’t you know? If you say otherwise Corch Meyers will just point, stare, and comment about how it’s a big deal.

      Not to mention frickin’ racking up charges on a DEAD girl’s credit card…but certain school’s like UF (and USC, where if they taxed the benefits their players receive we might pull ourself out of this recession) get a pass.
