The NCAA is making Flordia's defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd sit one more game and make arrangements to pay about 2,700 to charity before he can be eligible again. Floyd, who grew up very poor, received more than $2,500 over several months from the Student Athlete Mentoring Foundation, a non profit in Delaware. He used to money for living expenses. Florida coach Muschamp said...

"I'm angered, disgusted and extremely disappointed that Sharrif will have to miss two games,"..."In my opinion, Sharrif is getting lumped into what is bad about college athletics. ... Sharrif is what is good about college athletics -- his life is about survival, struggle, disappointment and adversity."
Based on Floyd's background, the penalty was reduced from a possible four games to two.
