Multiple sources are reporting that Florida starting quarterback Will Grier has been suspended for the rest of the season for a violation of NCAA rules.

Florida travels to Baton Rouge this upcoming weekend to face LSU on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. Per ESPN:
quote:

Grier tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, a source said. The positive test carries an automatic one-year suspension from the NCAA.

News of Grier's suspension was earlier reported by gridironnow.com.

A freshman from Davidson, North Carolina, Grier has thrown for 10 touchdowns, three interceptions and 1,204 yards for the eighth-ranked Gators.

Coach had to know something was up. He has been around players for years and when a kid gains weight like this then it is not just from eating and lifting like crazy.

why did McElwain say UF would appeal? Grier admitted taking a banned substance. Doesn't that negate the need to appeal?

"but something about a kid getting suspended for a year for taking something you can buy at Walgreens is upsetting."

You can't buy Ligandrol at Walgreens. And it says in the label "not for human consumption." (Which is why you can't buy it at Walgreens.)

If the name has the letters "ol" at the end of it, check with someone before you take it. Most people know this.

"The argument here is relatively weak."

The point of my rant was that while Grier made a mistake (knowingly or not), there is an extreme level of hypocrisy and corruption at play in the NCAA. So long as a student athlete did not commit a violent offense, I refuse to stand with the NCAA for punishing a student athlete that they are making money off of. So what is your argument? Shame on Grier for breaking an NCAA rule? Shame on a student athlete to try and gain a competitive advantage? If so, that is exactly what the NCAA wants you think. Just keep your eyes closed and tune in on Saturdays. And definitely don't pay attention to the amount of money being made, none of which actually goes back to the student athlete. Seriously, f**k the NCAA.

Being suspended for the rest of the year seems like overkill

Really Grier? No wonder he got so big over one year. The kid was skinny as hell last year. Remember when they made a big deal about how much weight he put on?

The argument here is relatively weak. In the realm of workout supplements there are plenty of OTC items that are kind of a no brainer "I shouldnt take this because I get tested".

You can go to your local GNC and buy forms of Human growth hormone. Now people really cant be so dense that just because you can purchase it legally that its ok to be taken?

OTC substances should not be banned by the NCAA or professional leagues. If the FDA approves it, it should be allowable.


someone does not understand the divide between OTC and FDA. LMAO

Having said that, these kids are given the rules and he should have been more responsible. So in that regard, I dont feel sorry for him. Geaux Tigers. God bless Treon

"Wait you hate that he used PEDs? Its his own stupid fault, if you dont want to get suspended dont cheat." It is definitely a mistake on his part, but something about a kid getting suspended for a year for taking something you can buy at Walgreens is upsetting. Its also upsetting to think about the bazillion dollars Florida and the SEC conference will make this year because of kids like Grier. And now because he took an FDA approved product made by LGD Pharmaceuticals (who also presumably makes a bazillion dollars a year) you potentially ruin his career? Again, mistake on his part but I won't sit here and call him a cheater, that's hypocritical IMO. The NCAA, SEC, Pharmaceutical Industry are all at best "cheaters".

I guess Ole Miss doesn't test, because Kelly is on enough amphetamines to wake the dead.

"Ligandrol basically a steroid"

Yep thats a steroid, you cant get grow while losing weight without supplements.
