    He was a 3 star so I'm sure what the fuss is. People made it seem like he was the #1 recruit in the entire class. He wasn't even Top 20 in his own position.

    I don't want to "write him off" but his judgement was extraordinarily bad. Speeding at 86, running, turning off lights, then speeding at 150.
    Pot, suspended licence, accident and then running away on foot. Wasn't another driver injured?

    Anyway, I suspect the young man panicked and did what he did out of fear and desperation, it would have been 10X better to just go "shit" pull over and face the music. He went from multiple misdemeanors to multiple felony categories with his decisions. He has more to worry about than losing his spot at Florida.

    I hope the young man learns his lesson going forward. Football or not, he has a life ahead of him. I hope it works out for him irregardless if he ever suits up for the Gators or not.

    I know I ramble and often go "off topic" but I don't think thats the case on my above post.

    We need quality behavior from people representing our school. We've seen what happens to a program when the alternative standard is applied. That said, Napier has shown a propensity for second chances within the private confines of the team. For example, Cox had to show a pattern of problem behavior before he was shown the door. Don't be disturbed by what fans think out loud on a message board; none of us control what Napier will do. And, to be honest, players don't stay anywhere very long anymore (of their own accord) anyway. If he moved on, it would hardly impact his life much these days.

    It is ironic, I thought of him as “slow”.

    “Nope, wrong again DieAGator”.

    This is way over the top. He needs to take full responsibility for his actions first, Then figure out how to get his life back on track and i just don't see him doing all of that at UF.

    Spoke with a criminal defense attorney client of mine. He said he is not familiar with GA law but after I read him the charges and the GA statute, he said the kid is in for a long haul. He said if MB doesn't have any prior convictions, there are pretrial diversion programs for the lesser charges but the felony to evade with injury will be one that will be hard to reduce or go away.

    This maybe off topic, and I apologize if it is.

    I wonder if there is a correlation with NIL's and number of college players who fly off the tracks? It can be a bad thing to had over a ton of cash to a immature (age and common sense wise) person.

    I have no idea what sort of NIL deal Michael Boireau has.
    I mean, even a $50,000 NIL deal is a lot of money to put in the pocket of a young jock who just got out of high school.


    Even at age 18, what the hell was he doing in Monroe, Ga. at 10:00 PM?
    Please note that Monroe is about 60 miles due east of his home town of Fairburn.
    Do you know what is located 25 miles due east of Monroe?
    Answer: The UGA campus in Athens, GA.

    It will be interesting to know if Michael Boireau was doing some partying in Athens just prior to his pit stop in Monroe.

    To correct my post, Jalen Carter pleaded no contest and got 12 months probation and a $1000 fine after street racing at speeds of 105 mph resulting in the death of two people. Since he remained at the scene and didn’t “directly” cause the accident, the DA decided that he would only be charged with traffic offenses and not manslaughter.

    Georgia's Jalen Carter gets 1-year probation, $1,000 fine

    If it had been a first time offense I could possibly see claiming that 2 young people made bad decisions that equally contributed to their own fates but the guy was stopped for reckless speeds months prior and learned nothing. Tickets paid by UGA no doubt and swept under the rug until the second offense led to its unveiling. Filthy program

    He didn’t remain at the scene. He left the scene with his friends dying and returned later. Most likely at the urging of his UGa fixer after he reported what happened.

    Ok. Was just going by what the article said. If so, that is a pretty big omission and smells of the DA trying to justify his decision by omitting information.
