    Re: Two Texas Football Players Accused of Sexual Assault

    Please NOBODY accuse me of using the "asking for it" argument, but.....


    if (as the article says, and you know journalism) SHE invited THEM back to the room....what EXACTLY did she think they were going back for?

    It reminds me of when Mike Tyson was accused/tried/convicted of rape. The first question I had was the same one a lot of people had - "What was she doing in Mike's room at 2 am? Mike ain't known as a world-class dominoes player."

    Yes, but that is only because everything else falls.

    Re: Two Texas Football Players Accused of Sexual Assault

    I'm going to give the players the benefit of the doubt - until more is shared about this incident.

    Maybe I am too naive but I prefer to think of young student athletes as having some reasonable semblance of the code of honor.

    That said I wonder about a curfew policy that might have been in place and thus breached (?)

    This is exactly why curfews exist and need to be followed!

    A real shame....

    The worst part of this is that the HC/AD has to take a conservative course. If he plays them and the allegations turn out true, he's crucified. OTOH, holding them out, as appears to be true, and they're exonerated, he's crucified by a different crew. Not a good position...

    I'm assuming (yeah, dangerous to assume) the decision to send them home was tied to missing a curfew or similar team rule....regardless of what comes out of the sexual assault accusation.

    Yep. Those are the names being reported on ESPN.

    Charges were dropped. Thought it was fair to bring closure to this.

    I've been invited back to hotel rooms before, and I never assumed anything close to what these players were accused of would be happening. And, the article is devoid of content as to why the charges were dropped. So, we can only assume why.

    If you don't have anything nice to say, then say it with class, say it eloquently, and for goodness sake use the English language like your English teacher tried so hard to teach you.

    You just have to get a little older to see the wisdom of your statement.

    Texas should call Notre Dame on how to cover up rapes.
