Students marry after bumping backpacks in the Hub

37 UF football players suspended after playing laser tag

Another day of bad judgement has led the UF Football team to even more suspensions. The NCAA has suspended 37 players after officials found evidence of the team participating at a local laser tag arena.

The overwhelming evidence was that the Gators players were wearing their full game uniforms while playing laser tag.

“I just wear my jersey no matter where I’m at.”

Said UF quarterback Luke Del Rio.

“I never even thought it could possibly backfire.”

The Gators decided on laser tag over bowling because the bowling alley at the Reitz doesn’t allow laughing or happiness.

The players will reportedly be suspended until the Gators are completely out [...]
