As a die hard Gator fan, I want to give congrats to Myron Rolle regarding his Rhodes Scholarship chance. Great guy from a great family. Its only too bad that his interview couldn't have been in two weeks! ;) Good luck to him.

As a die hard Seminole fan, I want to thank you for your kind words for Myron Rolle. You prove that there are actually good Gators out there!

If convicted of anything, kick them clean off the team. Let them go cry to BO.

I'm as die hard a Gator as you'll find, but (as much as it pains me to say anything nice about a 'nole) it is good to hear about someone with his priorities straight. Good luck to Myron Rolle.

Thanks for the kind words. Kind of how I feel about Tim Tebow. Can't stand that the kid plays for the Gators and is soooo damn good. But can't take anything away from him on a personal note. He definitely seems to do things right on and off the field----but I still can't wait until he graduates---haha.

Myron Rolle is a great student/athlete/ all around guy. Great to see him at FSU. Actually only a few players are spoiling it right now. Hopefully it all gets resolved soon so we can put it behind us.

I will second that. It is nice to hear something nice from Gators every once in a while. It is hard not to like Tebow. I hate that he plays for the enemy, but he is a stand up kid and wish he was on our team.

What is going on with the Slantenel? Four out of five things in this article are positive. I love all aspects of the fight. It shows team spirit and toughness. It also shows that FSU has more class than other schools when handling things like this. I am glad we are so much stricter than other schools. The db getting hurt while celebrating is also great news-it shows how much they are into the game. Rolle shows how our players are really students first.

The negative is on Ponder, but I think the gates play man more than zone so I look for him to light them up.

Also, I hate Tebow. All he does is seek pub for himself.

The media has latched on to Tebow because he's a phenomenal talent and a devout and humble kid. You make it sound like he's got a press agent or something...

As a UF alum from the 80's, its good to see a kid like Rolle take academics seriously and have goals in life.

I am not a fan of the Noles, obviously. But players like Warrick Dunn and Derrick Brooks have always been first class guys while at FSU and in the NFL. I would NEVER root against guys like that. Even when they played at FSU and made plays (like 1993), I said to myself that he is a good kid. You cant hate players (people) like those two. Well actually those three if you include Rolle. Good, upstanding citizens.

Both schools have had their dirtbags. In the spirit of this thread (positive) I will not name names from either school. I choose to look at the positive. Both schools have their positive role models (Teabow, Wuerffel, Brooks, Dunn). Both schools are well represented.

Go Gators.

I think Bowden said it best (never thought I'd hear myself say that). Every major team has had at least one black eye. So throwing stones at a rival about player behavior is pretty much pointless.

One Black Eye...are you kidding me! You guys are a disgrace. Myron Rolle is an anomaly for you program and he should get extra credit for bringing you're sorry ass program up to mediocre!

you obviously have a reading comp. problem. he is not a FSU supporter. he is pointing out that every program has problems. i guess you forgot about dead girls credit cards, weed dealers, AK-47 owners, sandwich throwers and car jacking from a tow yard. welcome to D-1 college football. its a shame you are so oblivious to D-1 college football and the thugs that play it.
