    Had to read this a few times. First few times I was like, why would he throw a party (i.e. kegger) at a frat house.

    Then I realize the dude threw an actual keg and a person. Impressive.

    Im not trying to bring it to a personal level Tan but I had so much hope for Tauren coming in. He was gone quicker then you can snap. Last time I checked, TC was playing in one of those arena leagues couple years ago.

    Tan, stop being round snitches. IMH0 he got what he deserved for starting it. We'll leave it at that.

    Well you can ask TTgator for the official UF fan response, but there was an argument and Charles has a temper imbalance.

    somewhere in the fight, someone(always thought Ant Guerrerro did it personally) threw a half a loaded keg and struck Tandn's friend when he was on the ground. Broke his nose, concussed all that shite.

    I don't think he threw a person, but that would be impressive.

    True but I think he was really more a case of a fucking idiot who went pro too early. He had no business leavin when he did. Pro scouts seemed to understand what he was, he didn't.

    To be fair the decent coaches aren't gonna be at places like Miami Northwestern in the fuckin hood. But yeah overall there's a ton of shitty coaches who rely on nothing more than ridiculous athletes(basicaly most teams from Miami), case in point Taurean Charles team who lost to a well coached Apopka team(whose coach promptly fled to Georgia).

    You are right, but it really is absurd to see such little discipline from a lot of these teams.

    some of the stories about former florida hs football players throwing shit at others reminded me of one about Clemson's own Duane Coleman. a guy i worked with was at a party in clemson and as he was leaving got hit in the back with an egg. he turned around to see who did it and duane coleman was standing there surrounded by his thugs laughing. the guy said duane then walked up to him and got in his face and said "do something pussy". dude from work said he had no choice but to turn around and walk off.

    cliffs: duane coleman was a thug and liked to fuck with white people

    Mentioned Chris Porter earlier, but forgot about what happened when he was traded to Charlotte.
    During his 51 games as a rookie small forward for Golden State, Porter averaged 8.6 points and 3.7 rebounds per contest despite a nagging sprained left ankle [4] and limited playing time (22 minutes per game[5]). However, showing up 3 days late for summer camp followed by an off-the-court arrest soon clouded Porter's contributions and the team decided to trade him to the Charlotte Hornets in a 3-team 8-player deal. After Porter missed his flight to Charlotte [6], he was released from the team having never played in a game and has since not returned to the NBA. :facepalm:

    I actually have a couple similar examples. One went to UF to play QB for Spurrier, later played LB at ECU. The other is even more frustrating. He was in the Brewers farm system and moving up quickly but decided to quit so he could live close to this chick he's dating. The second example just happened this year.
