The Bull Gator:
After his run-in with the law over two weeks ago, Florida Gators cornerback Louchiez Purifoy’s criminal stretch is no more, as the Gainesville state attorney’s office has decided to drop its case against Purifoy, due to lack of evidence. Purifoy, a fan-favorite for many, was arrested for allegedly being present in a car containing marijuana. Before the case was dropped, Purifoy faced a misdemeanor.
Purifoy’s case was likely dropped because the young Gator was in the back of the car, while the cannabis was found in the front. The Florida Gators’ MVA (Most Valuable Attorney) Huntley Johnson defended Purifoy.
Purifoy will now moves past his arrest, and Will Muschamp has surely already conversed/scolded/advised Purifoy, so that’s a good thing. We hope Louchiez can learn from the mistake, and hopefully pick his “crowd” more responsibly. The cornerback will actually be playing some wide receiver in Spring practice, according to Coach Muschamp.

Florida head coach Kevin O’Sullivan was optimistic about his team’s defense this season. He liked the athleticism and range that the Gators could put on the field. It hasn’t played out that way during the first week of the season. Through five games, Florida has made 15 errors. The Gators made six errors on Wednesday night in an 8-7 midweek loss to Georgia Southern in 12 innings.
No. 5 Florida doesn’t need to be warned about Arkansas. The Gators have seen it for themselves.
