The 5 star LB from Ohio that muschamp beat us out for when he was at UT
Well he is 1 of the 2 UT players accused of rape apparently, the other is case McCoy
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
scrape the sides up...
Damn, he always seemed like a good kid during the recruiting process.
The girl claims to not remember what happened, I'm sure that will be a big part of this ordeal

says they raped her, but she admits being drunk and doesnt remember exactly what happened, that seems odd..
I always withhold judgement on these types of allegations.
Man this is horrible for those young men, accusations of rape ruins lives, not just careers smh. I feel awful for their families and teammates but if true I feel even worse for the victim!!!
SMH I hate this about sports and young players... tragic
Having had a friend falsely accused of rape, I definitely reserve judgement in these situations.
wonder how long it'll take until the nancy grace's of the world is all over this
That stood out to me too. I just hope she is sure of what happened before she accuses them of such a horrible and damaging allegation. If true I feel really bad for her and hope they are deservedly punished.
if it did or didn't happen, I'm going to assume that the UT team has their own Huntley Johnson and based on her admitting she doesn't remember what happened he will get this thrown out quickly
sucks for all parties involved and it's only a matter of time before the girls name and face is all over the internet
yea I agree unless there's more to it, I don't see it going too far. I would just hate to see anyone's reputation damaged which seems likely to happen either way it turns out.
This. Sounds like she get drunk, slutted around, then was full of regret the next day. That said, these things happen and I hope it's a false allegation. Very unfortunate if not.
Police report is out now. She had bruises on her knees and arms.
Either this website doesn't exist or is not currently available.

So does every girl after a night of drinking
This case probably won't hold water...it will more than likely be thrown out but the damage is already done...
this is why you dont bang girls that are stupid drunk wtf? if you cant remember being raped you didnt get raped
Yep if a girl is so drunk that she won't remember if she agreed to sleep with you or not then you should expect situations like this could happen. She could have been drunk and passed out then they raped her without her knowing and she wakes up in the morning not knowing what happened. Either way seems like both parties could have handled the situation better.
My point exactly, accusations ruin people not hurt feelings...these things are life altering!!!
First name came to mind 4* RB Tiawan Easterling...does anybody remember him? Just look at all that talent, vanished into thin air, was never heard of again smh
Geez, I sure hope some of you guys are kidding. False accusations happen; but their frequency pales in comparison to how many real rapes occur while a girl is passed out and/or dosed.
The report of bruises on knees and arms is pretty damning stuff. Ultimately, though, more evidence (especially forensic) will likely be necessary to say either way. Hope the authorities get it right.
I know one thing; if this had ever happened to my little sister when we were growing up, the offenders would have been BEGGING for police intervention and prison.
Dude, given the accusations here, that was just wrong.
According to the FBI, only 8% of rape allegations are false (though this stat is heavily debated). Just keep that in mind when "attacking" the victim.
This is not to say that the players are either guilty or innocent. Obviously, I have no idea. But in this society, with regards to rape, so easy for people to fall into the trap of attacking the victim. So what if she was drunk? Just because she was drunk doesn't mean she was asking to be raped, or make her more "liable." Rape is rape. It is what it is.
Again, I have no idea what happened, but it greatly bothers me when people attack the victim in these cases. Like mentioned above, if rape actually did occur, there will be additional forensic evidence that proves it (i.e. a "rape kit."). If the young woman did not have one of these performed, then it will be very hard to prove.
My apologies. It was insensitive.
However the point is true. These bruises arent damning evidence imo.
The only damning evidence is that she does not remember.
