Not worth the trouble

Jamar Hornsby's case was delayed until Mid-August. Houston Nutt wouldn't comment if Hornsby would still practice with the team while his case was in limbo.

It's shameful that we even offered and signed this kid. Call me callous, but the credit card theft crosses a line of decent humanity from which there is absolutely no return. It wasn't his first run-in with the law in Gainesville either, just his most publicized.

And don't feed me the canned "everybody deserves a second chance" line. Hornsby has blown more chances than anyone deserves. The fact that he was recruited at all with his criminal background is a harsh glimpse into the "win-at-all-costs" of major D1 football.

Replacing Jamarca Sanford will not be easy, but Hornsby is not the answer. 2009 has too much potential for greatness to jeopardize it only nefarious characters such as Hornsby.


  1. This kid is the worst type of creep. It's a shame, too, because if he kept clean, he'd have a straight ticket to the NFL.

    He's blown so many chances, he deserves to go back to the ghetto that he came from

  2. Hey Mike,

    I agree 100%. Hard to believe after all his shenanigans in Gainesville that any coach would recruit him. 2009 could be the best OM football season in decades. No point in jeopardizing it over Hornsby.
