Florida is a lot like Auburn in a number of ways. One of them is that we, as Georgia fans get our hopes up on numerous occasions that there’s a chance that the program may be in trouble with the NCAA.
Both programs, however, are teflon. Nothing sticks, no matter what. For Auburn, it was Cam Newton. Only an Auburn fan is convinced nothing illegal went on. At Florida…Zook and Meyer were largely given a free pass for off-field problems (can you image some of the Atlanta media covering UF’s program?). And then there was St. Timothy Tebow, whose after-play celebrations somehow were ok in the eyes of SEC officials.
So it comes as no surprise that while he was at Florida, Aaron Hernandez multiple times sought the counsel of, you guessed it, the best friend of any Gator athlete, Huntley Johnson.
Oh but it’s ok. I’m sure that no athletes received preferential treatment. If you believe that, I’ve got some oceanfront property in Miller County to sell you.
