And the offseason chugs on for Florida, literally. Another day, another DUI, [insert your funny "HAHA Gators!" joke here].

Florida's 20-year-old sophomore receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. was arrested by UF police early this morning for DUI and liquor possession. He reportedly had an open bottle of Crown Royal in his car (classy!) and was all over the road as he sped through campus around 2:00 am.

He failed the sobriety tests and registered a .188 BAC, over twice the legal limit.

This marks the 28th arrest under Urban Meyer, so feel free to share your parental hullabaloo in the comments because "Meyer should have known/had more control/etc.".

Hammond has been suspended from all team activities, making the receiving corps about as thin as Hammond's blood this morning. Hammond was expected to be a major part of Meyer's revamped offensive attack next season.

The Gators have yet to issue a statement on the severity of the punishment Hammond will face, but expect an angry glare from Meyer and at least one series of missed playing time.
