Gator News And World Report (07/21/04)

The Gator News and World Report for Wednesday, July 21, 2004. Crowder to sit out one game; Keg thrown on student; Charles' felony arrest tops latest suspensions; New UF president unlikely to give Zook quick hook; Banks to miss Vols annual clash with Gators and more...

Note: There are many articles this morning concerning the suspension of Gator players. What I try to do is link any story that is on line even if the subject matter is the same. So if all the Florida papers cover a subject and the wire picks it up there can be many stories that are similar, but not the same. The wire story will appear all over, but I will only pick it up one time (hopefully) from each wire service. That way the reader can get the "view" from several sources instead of just one or two beat writers.
