Urban Meyer has been silent about Aaron Hernandez’s current situation, until now. He attempted to set the record straight in a series of text messages with Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch...

quote:

"Prayers and thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim,” Meyer said. “Relating or blaming these serious charges to the University of Florida, myself or our staff is wrong and irresponsible.”

“I just received an email from a friend where there is an accusation of multiple failed drug tests by Hernandez covered up by University of Florida or the coaching staff. This is absolutely not true,” Meyer said. “Hernandez was held to the same drug testing policy as every other player. . . .

“He was an athlete at Florida 4-7 yrs ago and there are some comments being made that are not correct. Our staff, myself and our families worked very hard to mentor and guide him.”

"Hernandez was held to the same drug testing policy as every other player. . ."

I believe this 100%.

Over 45 players were arrested under Meyer's reign at UF. They have their own attorney, Huntley Johnson, who keeps these guys out of the public eye.
