JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Chris Rainey stood in the middle of
Florida's locker room and thanked everyone for a second chance.
His teammates and coaches responded with a loud cheer and a few
tears.
Rainey returned from a five-game suspension for being arrested,
gave the Gators a much-needed boost against rival Georgia and then
offered a heartfelt speech after the 34-31 victory Saturday.
Teammates Mike Pouncey says he cried because he "felt every bit
of his pain."
Rainey ran for 84 yards and a touchdown against the Bulldogs,
and finished with 241 all-purpose yards. He was arguably the most
significant change for Florida following a three-game losing streak
and a bye week.
