Driving with Ford lately?

Noel Devine wasn't the only 5 star running back that signed with a Big East team this season. USF got a commitment from star recruit Mike Ford. Ford was expected to make a splash this upcoming season and he is off to a quick start. The Bulls running back was arrested Friday morning on a comtempt of court charge in his hometown of Sarasota, Florida.



Ford, who was released Saturday morning after posting $2,000 bail, had an outstanding warrant for receiving three citations over the past 16 months and then failing to show for a June 12 court appearance. Ford received the initial citations on March 31, 2006 and Feb. 23, 2007 for driving without a license.

Additionally, on May 29, 2007 Ford was cited for driving with a suspended license and driving an unregistered motor vehicle.

Ford is the second USF football player to be arrested this off-season, following quarterback Matt Grothe's April arrest for selling alcohol to a minor.


Big East representatives have already told USF officials that if they plan on becoming big time they must get the bosters to start kicking in "registered" cars to incoming players immediately.

If they want to be big time they need at least two alumni players suspended from the NFL in the same season ( and at least 8 games)

Alumni signifies graduation. I think you mean former. Like former linebacker suspended for steriod use in the middle of his second season. Lights out.

Good point, Lights out was only out for four games and during that time he didnt make it"rain" at a strip joint..I did say at least 8 games.. Maryland is not bigtime

Maryland is not bigtime

You have never spoken anything more true than that.
