Buckshots...

(No DV,...just love the gif)

Also, this was a minor violation for a "bump". Seeing how fast things can be fabricated about NCAA violations, I wouldn't want to speculate about major violations coming down the pipe.

A coach would resign because of a minor violation? I gotta say, I  think there is more going on then just this.

The violation that is being reported is one of a minor nature. It is a "bump" or inadvertent contact with a recruit.

As others have said, if they can prove it wasn't by accident that would change the nature of the violation.

I for one (after all the speculation and false accusations our program went through) am not going to speculate more than what it is.

Joker Phillips is a great coach and even better person but I just don't see him stepping down or being forced to step down 3 months before the season for a minor violation that hasn't even been proven yet.

Davis is right on the money. Coaches dont bail like this,at least highly respectable ones like Phillips unless they are trying to minimize something bigger then a bump violation. Funny because Muschump accused our staff of ratting him out for a bump violation just last year and they had quite the chuckle about it.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

That's what I was thinking. No way it was a bump and nothing else

I'm going to hold my judgment until more comes out. Until then, I'll take it at what it is and that is a minor violation.

I wonder how the media is going to involve Urban Meyer?

My in-laws are big Gator fans.  When I told them tonight about this major violation, my father-in-law immedietly said, "The violator must have been a remnant of Urban Meyer."  I promptly corrected him.

From what I've read, if it can be proved that Joker Phillips arranged the meeting with the recruit and purposely violated the dead period, which there's supposedly a picture of him with the recruit he "bumped" at a restaurant, the severity of the violation could escalate.

Easier said than done...unless you're Ohio State's compliance department (Too soon?)

It's the SEC, I'll be SHOCKED if Emmert and the NCAA do anything more than a slap on the wrist, or even a "stern talking to".

Probably, but the one thing it does do is hurt UFs recruiting and their D. Losing a key assistant less than 3 months before the season starts won't help. Muschumps days are numbered.

I read (on Bucknuts, so grain of salt lol) that he had some indiscretions while at Kentucky that are apparently about to catch up to him. Muschamp caught wind of what was coming and forced a Joker resignation.

Was it the getting his lovin' on the run or the midnight toking that got him into trouble?

Thanks AV and Earle, you just made my day! My late mother LOVED the Steve Miller Band. Some of my earliest memories are of her playing her scratched vinyl albums in our trailer when I was 4. I simultaneously laughed hysterically and had a tear in my eye. Getting dusty :)

Some call him the gangster of love...

Some people call him Maurice....

Cause he recruits with the pompitous of love...

EDIT: Someone doesn't like Steve Miller apparently...

More likely he let some recruit take the money and run.

I think Joker is actually getting big-time punishment for all of those terrible #ComePlayWRForTheJoker memes he tried to create.

Some were funny, some made me sad to look at.

Those UF promos were among the ugliest to ever burn my retinas.

I heard today that U of F will be underdogs in about 5 of their games this year - totaling 62 points. I bet when it's all said and done that point differential will be closer to 70 plus.
