If this is true, he's an idiot. He jeopardized his livelihood. Even if it's NOT true, he put himself in a bad position and is jeopardizing his future. If I was about to enter a draft, I would bubble-wrap myself when not playing ball and be careful of every situation I'm in. Too much to ask to be at home by 2am? Or earlier?

Wow, as much as I and most reasonable human beings with a conscience despise men who lack self control and think it's ok to harm women, this title has got to be changed.  I foresee absolute chaos in this thread's future.  There are much more articulate ways of phrasing this.

He is only alleged of beating one woman, so it's sort of a misleading title, but your point that there seems to be a trend of MSU basketball players and their criminal records is taken. Let's see how this plays out. 

Let's not forget that Josh Furman was just accused of something similar, and he was found not guilty on all three counts (assault, domestic violence, illegal entry).

Common guys they are VERY similar.  Let's look:

1. Both involved athletes

2. Both involved women

3. Both involved police

Let's be real - if they situations were any closer together it would be like this crazy deja-vu thing were history actually did repeat itself exactly.  Groundhog day if you will.

Between Sparty's football and basketball teams, it's obvious to anyone who wants to look that neither coach teaches his players to have any respect for women.  As long as both Mark Dantonio and Tom Izzo continue to reward players for such behavior, where is their motivation to become good citizens?

Traditions, both positive and negative, are passed from coach to player and from player to player in any program. 

Why on earth would any parent want his son to go to such a cesspool?

I don't know how much of a stretch it is. Some women got roughed up in the Rather Hall assault that went largely unpunished. Depending on who you want to believe, Something pretty serious got swept under the rug at Wonders hall a year later. Violence against women is a major problem on every campus, but there have been red flags popping up with MSU athletes more than most.
