You go, Carl

Now that is an interesting statement. The world eagerly awaits the “legitimate reason” for using a dead girl’s credit card to buy gas. In the meantime, Hornsby is toast — “not part of our program,” according to Meyer — as this marks the third incident in his short tenure with the Gators. He was arrested this past year for a fight, and was also suspended for five games for selling his free football tickets. Look for him to resurface playing alongside fellow big-time failure Ryan Perrilloux in a 1-AA program somewhere soon.

Breath of Lofa
Minor note for NFL fans: Lofa Tatupu, star linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks and son of former Patriots icon Mosi Tatupu, was busted for a DUI this past week in Kirkland, Washington, while driving a Hyundai. (A Hyundai!) Tatupu originally declined to blow into a breathalyzer on the road; brought back to the station, he failed in his first two attempts to provide a “steady flow of air” into the machine. Cops informed him that if he didn’t get enough air in on his third try he would be taken to the hospital to have his blood drawn. So he complied, blowing a 0.155 and a 0.158, both about twice the legal limit. Give him 25 points on his way to arraignment. Too bad, the guy can really play — the Pats still should have drafted him.
