It’s the Friday before week two, and we’re already handing out national championships.
The Florida Gators may or may not win the SEC, but they’re already the proud owners of the worst rap song of 2011. “Gator Bait” is ambitious, appears to have taken a fair amount of time, and so horrible you cannot turn it off. Actually, it’s so horrible you probably won’t make it past the first 17 seconds.
In any event, here is your 2011 “Chompionship” Version…
After being pulled over around 2 a.m. on Saturday for switching lanes too close to an intersection, the 26-year-old knew he had too much to drink and was desperate to wiggle his way out of the situation. So, he went with a story that he thought would work.
Once he was finally able to successfully pull the car over, Carl told the officers that he was a member of the Gator football team – which he’s not – and asked if this could provide him any help in the current predicament. Unfortunately for him, it did not.
While Hutchinson was explaining why he pulled Brusch over, Brusch made the claim about being a Gator and asked if that would change the situation, according to the deputy’s report.
Then, while Hutchinson was waiting for a computer check, Brusch admitted having a suspended license. He also said he had drunk about two cups of an alcoholic beverage, Hutchinson said, but refused to take a breath test after performing poorly on sobriety tests.
Carl was booked on DUI and habitually driving while his license was suspended. Luckily, or perhaps unluckily for him, however, he doesn’t have a coach to answer to or an on-the-field suspension to deal with once he settles up his legal matters.
Urban Meyer retired as head coach of the University of Florida after last football season saying he was going to put the “focus on my family.” When he accepted a job at ESPN shortly after, the internet loaded up on Urban jokes, citing his comments that he made on his way out of Gainesville.
While no one in their right mind could possibly compare coaching one of the top programs in college football to covering them from behind the desk, those that enjoyed poking fun at his comments now have some more ammunition. According to a Tweet by his daughter Gigi, working at the worldwide leader hasn’t exactly been as significant of dropoff in time as one might believe.
Gigi posted this following on her Twitter page on Wednesday.
Dear @espn... can I please have my dad back?? Tinks
On Thursday morning, Gigi responded once again through her Twitter account, this time clarifying what she was trying to get across.
“I may have said the wrong. My dad has been spending more time with the fam. There’s just a short period of time where he travels. But its ok”
“Cause he loves @espn and he doesn’t have to stress about anything. So its all good! I’m sorry if I freaked Yall out. : (“
Now, we’re not going to be the ones to crack the next family man jokes - it’s all yours – but there are interesting comments that will generate plenty of chatter from Gator fans (more so haters) and beyond. I have absolutely no idea what kind of time Urban puts in at his new job, but having an idea of how much hard he worked when he was at Florida, I imagine it’s still significant.
Interestingly enough, Gigi’s Tweet comes just a few weeks after her sister Nikki shot down the “Urban to Ohio State” rumors through her Twitter feed that gained sudden steam (again) from a handful of misinformed sources simply trying to handicap next year. If there’s an award given out to “most relevant Tweets from a coach’s daughter(s)” at the end of the year, I imagine the Meyer family will likely run away with this honor.
