Florida's Dunlap won't make trip
By ESPN.com staff
Florida already knew it would be playing without star defensive end Carlos Dunlap in the SEC championship game.
But Florida coach Urban Mayer said Dunlap won't even be making the trip after being arrested this week on DUI charges.
Dunlap has been suspended indefinitely, which means his status for the postseason is also up in the air. Meyer has not specified when or if Dunlap might return.
One of the top NFL defensive line prospects in college football, Dunlap was considered to be a a top 5 to 10 pick in the upcoming draft if he elects to come out, which most people think he will.
However, the arrest certainly won't help his stock. ESPN's Mel Kiper dropped Dunlap from No. 3 to No. 17 on his most recent Big Board of 2010 draft prospects.
