GAINESVILLE -- Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison remains suspended for UF’s first two games against Toledo and Miami, and coach Will Muschamp remains non-committal on if the suspension might ultimately be reduced.
The sophomore is the anticipated starter at middle linebacker. He was suspended indefinitely July 22 following two arrests in a five-week period. Morrison was arrested July 21 for allegedly barking at a police dog and resisting arrest, but the charges were later dropped.
“We’ve talked continuously through the summer. It’s part of being the head coach,” Muschamp said. “When a young man has poor judgment, you work him through it, you educate him and you help him. That’s what we’re doing. I don’t treat these guys any different than I treat my sons. It’s called ‘tough love.’ ”
UF ADDS OT COMMIT
