or was it an alleged rape? There are plenty of places to go read about these things. I don't especially care to see them posted until they are a bit farther down the path toward guilt.

Tempting as it may be, let's not use this as an excuse to berate OSU. Whether or not its true, when it comes to sexual assault, there's nothing funny about it.

I'll get down from my soap box now.

i would say its a little long but one thing is usually sure is that if it has taken this long they have their facts straight and a soild case. the town i live in has had a investagtion going on since nov. on a firemen stealing money from the union and a charity and it just now came out.

He looks the other way so much he dismisses a future heisman winner from his team cause a lot of coaches decide thats a good idea. I wont claim Urban Meyer is any better than any other coach but he isn't the slime that michigan and now florida fans try to make him out to be. Read the arrest reports of most of the kids he allowed to stay on the team, a good portion of the kids never got convicted of anything. And yes he did have a lot of kids arrested while at florida but i bet if coach hoke and co. were in florida and not ann arbor the arrest rates would go up for them as well

I played in Gainesville, Columbus, and Ann Arbor. I also trained for a summer in Bradenton. I did not encounter a single distraction in any of those places that isn't more available in Ann Arbor. I would argue that there are more distractions in Evanston/Chicago and Ann Arbor than there are in Gainesville or Columbus.

I thought that posting anonymously on the Internet meant you could state whatever you came to your mind. Whether it be a lame joke or a relevant point, and everything in between. I think people are to overly sensitive and I believe we live in a reactionary world instead of a proactive one. Too many in hindsights and not enough go out and do.

Condoning the actions taken by this person or persons. And I feel for the victim of this crime. As I have seen sexual assault destroy an army unit I was assigned to, and maybe for that reason I have become a little desensitized to it. But you either know right from wrong before getting oneself into such a situation. And apparently these young men lack that mental capacity. So whatever punishment or comments thrown at the person or persons involved sans the victim are deserved. So while I will not apologize for my off-handed remark. I will apologize for offending anyone. Again I apologize for offending anyone reading this forum.

With athletes and sexual aggression, Does the extra testosterone that makes one a great athlete make one more likely to commit an act of sexual violence? Or maybe the "look the other way" culture of athletics? At any rate, as much as this topic has popped up (namely at MSU, OSU, ND and even here). Someone should probably take some pro-active steps to counsel these guys when they step on campus.

Athletes are probably presented with more opportunities to have consensual relations, and probably find themselves in dubious situations more frequently as well. They also spend a lot of time in a particularly male-centric subculture. Finally, when one of them does commit a crime, it's more likely to be widely reported.

Not sure we should blame it all on testosterone levels though. I seem to recall some study that said athletes actually commit crimes at the same or lower rates as equivalent non athletes.
