    Quote "No doubt, every other Division I-A school would have signed Williams and dealt with the consequences as they came. When it came to character issues, they would have echoed Coker."

    I don't accept that statement as true. They might be a minority, but there are programs who wouldn't have taken this kid because of all of the legal issues in his past.

    One thing that really defines Coach T.:

    When presented with the background of Williams, (which at the time only one was "a known" infraction), coach T. passed, without wavering.

    Meanwhile, Coker knew of 4 infractions, his problems when he transfered highschools and still took him.

    Judge lets UM's top football recruit go to high school prom

    Posted May 19 2004, 1:55 PM EDT

    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=610 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=top width=450>[font=Verdana,Arial, Helvetica]FORT LAUDERDALE -- University of Miami's prized football recruit Willie Williams will be able to go to his high school prom on Friday over the objections of the Broward State Attorney's Office, which was concerned about him potentially violating his house arrest.

    Broward Circuit Judge Michael Kaplan ruled Wednesday that the Carol City High linebacker could go to the dance, but only if his football coach drove him back and forth. Williams has been wearing an electronic ankle monitor since February after he was accused of violating his probation in a 2002 burglary case during a recruiting trip to the University of Florida. He faces criminal charges in Gainesville that he set off three fire extinguishers in a hotel and grabbed a woman against her will.

Kaplan warned Williams that if doesn't comply with the terms of his house arrest, he will be going to jail.

    Assistant State Attorney Spencer Multack said that based on Williams' problems with staying inside his house he shouldn't be allowed to be out Friday night.

    "The prom is really the last place we think Mr. Williams needs to be," the prosecutor said. "He's going to have plenty of times in his life to be celebrating. I think he could forego this one occasion on this one time due to the nature of the circumstances.",0,2872154.story?coll=sfla-sports-front

    Coach T is the man

    Something tells me that Coker is going to have to assign a couple TAs to chauffeur Willie everywhere and monitor his activity 24 hours a day. :paranoid:

    I have a feeling Willie will give Florida LB Channing Crowder a run for his money in the "let's see who can get arrested the most our freshman year" competition. Crowder's so bad that the Gainesville cops recognized him when he was trying to flee his last crime scene. It's no wonder Zook paired the two up on Willie's official visit. They have a lot in common it seems.

    just wait untill the saints at the "U" get their hands on him to make him an upstanding member of the community. i mean, all his friends and teachers say great things about him. he was only stealing for food. he grew up in a bad neighborhood.

    This moring the guy on ESPN radio out of Ft. Myers did his whole call in show on whether or not he should be able to play at Miami or for any college. The guy that hosts the show, Brendan somethingorother, was tied to the Miami program the past 15 years and believes that he:

    "should be able to play otherwise he will spiral into the abyss, get into trouble and become a detriment to society."

    Every Latino kid in SW Florida called in and stated that he should be allowed to play. They like to tease Florida gator fans by stating that if he went to Florida that none of this would of ever been public. They also decided that they would throw in their two pesos about Maurice Clarett. I wanted to call in but we have been in so much crap that I thought it better to shut up!

    Arguing with most Miami fans is pointless. Your discretion was warranted, if for no other reason than to keep from being called all kinds of wonderful names on a public radio show.

    If WW had to steal food when he had $2800, what is he gonna do now?

    I wish I could be there to see the look on Coker's face when he walks in and sees Willie rummaging through his office for stuff to pawn.

    The real question will be if they ajudicate his felony. If they do then he could play.
