(Newser) – A new investigative report in Rolling Stone reveals that while Urban Meyer was head coach at the University of Florida, Meyer may have helped to cover up a drive-by shooting, an assault, and failed drug tests for Aaron Hernandez. Meyer has long denied that he enabled Hernandez's misbehavior, Fox News notes; just last month, Meyer insisted to the Columbus Dispatch that Hernandez had to submit to the same drug tests as his teammates. The article, previewed on Rolling Stone's website today, also alleges that the former NFL star, now a murder suspect, was a heavy PCP user. His heavy use of angel dust allegedly made him so paranoid that he carried a gun everywhere, the magazine says.

If you're a good enough player there'll be plenty of people willing to cover up for you. all in the name of winning.

what I want to know is, is the NCAA going to invistigate Urban Mayer, and Florida like they did Penn State and make the sanctions they did in the JoPa case and against the school

I guess this is what makes Urban Meyer a top level coach, the willingness to lie, cheat, cover-up, and do anything else it takes in order to win. USA!
