Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway continues to make questionable decisions, and he was suspended again on Monday for reportedly misusing school-issued funds. According to former Gators coach Steve Spurrier, this may be the last questionable decision that Callaway is allowed.
Speaking on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, Spurrier addressed the Callaway controversy, noting that this may be the Gators receiver’s final shot.
“Obviously, Antonio Callaway has had several incidents now that people are wondering when’s he going to straighten up,” Spurrier said. “I’ve got a feeling this might be his last chance to really straighten up. He’s a heck of a player, and the Gators need him out there, but the Gators have got a lot of good receivers also.”

Callaway was among seven Florida players suspended for this reported violation. He was suspended for the 2016 offseason for a sexual assault allegation, an incident that he cited being high on marijuana during the time in question.
On the field, Callaway has been a strong contributor, compiling 1,399 receiving yards and 7 receiving touchdowns over his first two seasons with the Gators.
Spurrier, who is now employed by the SiriusXM station, also stated that despite not having one of the team’s top receivers, he still thinks the Gators will beat Michigan in their season opener on Sept. 2, in Arlington, Texas.
“I think we’ve got enough ball players that are ready to face Michigan, and the outcome will not be affected by this,” Spurrier said.
