There has been some discussion about whether the federal investigation at MSU was started the way the investigation at UM started. In other words, was it initiated by a complaint about the alleged assault by basketball players in 2010 similar to how it was initiated at UM by a complaint about the assault by Gibbons?
The RCMB (I know, I know) has been quick to point out that MSU's investigation is merely housekeeping and has nothing to do with the specific incident involving the basketball players. Turns out, that's not true.
By the way, the names of the guys accused in 2010 at MSU have never actually been publicly released. That's why I simply refer to them as basketball players. They were described only as freshmen on the basketball team and MSU had four freshmen in that class. We all think we know who the two guys were but there has NEVER been an official statement revealing their names.
