..THERE ARE THREE TEAMS OUT THERE EVEN WORSE THAN SPARTY!!!  I did not think such a thing was even possible based on how bad the East Landfill crew is.

LOCK THE DOORS AND BAR THE WINDOWS!!!

Fulmer Cup is supposed to be a fun, lighthearted celebration of dumb, but mostly victimless crimes. State had 4 sexual assault offenses and nothing else (all the dumb college stuff happened before the off-season). I'm guessing highlighting or making light of rape isn't something they wanted to do.

Edit: Here's a blurb from one of the guys that put it together:

"This year all 3 of the top individual finishers were related to sexual assault so it didn't feel right going into too much detail in the post.
We have done recaps in the past when people do almost comical things to take the win, but this year I put more in the "Other Memorable" team charge to point out less heavy crimes."

Things really are back to normal. Michigan residing in the top 10, nobody giving a shit about MSU unless it's point your finger at worthy....speaking of. Western wins Saturday, heard it here 1st

I'm not really seeing the fun in this anymore.

 

A player was arrested for an alleged rape in a dorm room; afterward, 13 of his teammates were charged with felony theft for stealing from their accused teammate's room! Two wrongs (or in this case 14 wrongs) don't make a right... but they do score Fulmer Cup points!

 

Yeah, rape! It's funny!

I mean, Fulmer Cup has always had an awkward subtext where the funny, idiotic crimes are interspersed with the awful things like rape and sexual assault. This year in particular, sexual assault featured prominently unfortunately, and put a bit of a damper on the whole thing.

That said, it's pretty obvious the funny part here is that 13 teammates that seemed to try to punish the rapist by stealing from his room, not the rape itself.
