    When I was in school I was friends with some of the football players who told me I should walk on, that it would be fun and they would talk to the coach. So I went in to talk to Doug Dickey who as the head coach at the time. He said “The boys said something about you being a Vietnam Vet.” I told him I was and his next comment was hilarious. “Well I heard you all were hopped up on dope, and I don’t want that on my team, and besides you’d get killed out there.” What was funny was I partied with those guys and they didn’t need some burned out boonie rat like me to get them high.

    Great, social media while driving, what could go wrong? Looks like he's not hurting in the vehicle dept either.

    Not that I'm against it or that other schools weren't doing it, but I thought the parking thing was against some rule? Did I have that wrong or is this just another thing that's been thrown out the window?

    I remember maybe in the Pell years we got in trouble for athletes parking wherever they wanted. Handicap ♿spaces were popular. I think a parking lot assigned next to their dorm wouldn't count as an extra benefit.

    I would think it's illegal if it is only for football players and not all athletes on campus.
    So if football gets parking,you have to have it for women's gymnastics.

    Well I think it would need to be for everyone living in their dorm. We I lived in Rawlings I had to walk to my friends who lived in the Beaty towers.

    Maybe they are parking in the football only facility? Which is considered on campus, so this is not a story. I would think that football only parking at that facility is for players and coaches only.

    IMO Doug Dickie has no place in Florida football history outside of contempt. Your post confirms my belief.
