Urban Meyer gives Ronnie Wilson another shot (pun intended). Wilson has been reinstated as a walk-on at Florida. He will play defensive tackle and tail gunner for the Gators.
His initial suspension was caused by firing an AK-47 assault rifle into the air in a parking lot following an altercation with another man April 5, 2007. Wilson pleaded no contest to charges of battery and discharging a firearm in public.
So Ronnie "Delta Force" Wilson gets put back on the Florida team at defensive tackle. As Orson Swindle of EDSBS points out, I guess this pretty much confirms the rumors that Omar Hunter's got back / health problems.
When Orson Swindle invented the Fulmer Cup a separate award was created to "celebrate" individual achievement in complete lawless behavior by a football player. Alabama's Jimmy Johns will likely win it this year for allegedly selling cocaine. In 2007, Florida's Ronnie Wilson won the dubious award.
As Orson said to his fellow Gators today:
Purchase smoke machines and military fatigues immediately. We’re da U now, and will have to live with it.Indeed. Urban is many things, but a guy in pursuit of the top 1% of 1% is not one of them.
