Earlier today, we broke the news about Florida State defensive back Colin Blake's arrest for disorderly conduct in the early morning hours of Saturday, September 5. The expected barrage of questions ensued, most concerning the logistics of the situation. Specifically, since the Seminoles remove themselves to a hotel on nights prior to games, how did Blake manage to extricate himself to get in trouble? As it turns out, he didn't have to-- he wasn't there in the first place.

That's because, per Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post, Blake was medically disqualified from the team in August. Blake, a former four-star recruit out of San Antonio, Texas, was spotted at a bar on Friday night by a TomahawkNation source. Despite his nice size (6-3, 198), the Seminoles have recruited talent that has buried Blake on the depth chart; it's hard to fathom a scenario in which he would have seen substantial playing time.
