Pryor is a current All-Pro receiver. I'm going to take a wild guess that more recruits know about him than Art Schlichter.
Pryor seems understandably hurt.

He RTed this:
As I say below, we shouldn't assume that anyone who was victimized will engage in the same behavior, there does indeed seem to be a correlation.
Yes, it makes sense to theorize that Jerry assaulted him, too. (Though I hasten to add that we shouldn't consider all victims of molestation dangerous. They just need the mental health care we all deserve.)
Let's do some rough math. (I have a Creative Writing MFA from Ohio State, so feel free to double-check my figures.) Jeffrey was adopted as an infant. In March 2015, Jeffrey was 39, so let's just say he is 41 now. So Jeffrey was around Jerry since 1976.
Allegedly, Sandusky raped a boy in 1971 and the victim told Paterno about it.
Paterno was notified in 1976 about another boy who claimed to have a run-in with Sandusky.
If any of the many cases that took place in the early 1980s and before were true, and if Paterno knew about them, he may have done a grave, grave disservice to Jeffrey. The kid could have been taken from the Sanduskys and could have received counseling. If only Paterno had done something in the 40 years he seems to have known what Sandusky were up to...
And any job is "lucrative" in this context. Even if the salary is only the same as what the guy was getting at his high school, his resume gets a massive boost because of his time as a coach at TTUN. That's worth a lot of money.
Good for him!
But how he's going to get a zillion e-mails from strange weirdos.
I hope the kid didn't contract face chlamydia from Peppers' punch.
We all hope to live in a country where victims are protected and perpetrators are punished.
I do wonder what would happen if the accuser were treated like the accused in these kinds of necessarily emotional cases: named, their recent "bad behavior" broadcast in the media, prevented from earning a living...
I agree. No matter now much I dislike the team or the player, I want "my" teams to face opposing teams at full strength and on a fair basis. In football, that's a tall order. Everyone gets dinged up every week.
That sentiment goes double for high school kids who are still just playing ball.
I am so pleased that TP is doing such a great job in Cleveland. I'm guessing that the recent success gives him a little security and he'll have a place in the league for a while.
Are you being unpleasant? I spend most of my time on the site lurking and most of my posting on making fun of TTUN.
There's also missing punctuation.
They couldn't find anyone to proofread the statement?
I made this one yesterday and I selfishly want more people to see it and chuckle.
The people at Spy Magazine seem to have thought so.
If there is any silver lining in the cloud, perhaps it's that the school being extremely proactive could pay off if Gibson really did do something terrible. If others assert that we treated Gibson too lightly, we can stand behind a semester (season!) suspension.
I hate summer! It must have been something really, really bad for him to be suspended for the semester.
I disagree when you take it into the realm of employment. (These are college athletes.) How much of our lives belong to our employers? They own us 24/7?
And testing welfare recipients has been a big money loser for the few places it has been done. In Florida, for example, Governor Rick Scott (who just happens to own a drug testing company) passed drug testing for welfare recipients. There was a 2% positive test rate and the state ended up losing $40,000 on the whole deal. (Rick Scott, of course, profited.)
Depends on which account. You have the "clean" account where you tweet about how excited you are to go to class. Then you have the real account where the normal stuff happens.
I don't know about you, but I wouldn't friend an employer or someone like that on my social media. Too many opportunities for misunderstanding.
I'm going to guess that some players have multiple accounts or fib about what accounts they have, so the staff is sussing out what is really going on. And yes, I'm guessing they may go beyond "monitoring."
Good choices. I'm feeling good about the season so far. The summers are always the worst time of the year for me...can it be we're almost into college football season?
Teams like the Pittsburgh Pirates did this kind of thing for decades. They had a payroll of around $18 million for years because they could. The bare minimum of fans would show and they would still make money because of revenue sharing, TV contracts and the like.
Who's got it better than Leonard Taylor?
No worries. We all love and fear our 11W mods in equal measure. :)
(And this new information about whatever the new suspensions are could be on a new "Harbaugh Cray-Cray About Suspensions" post, but that's okay.)
I do contend that no D-I athlete has an excuse to be ineligible for academics. They have every single fair and perfectly legitimate advantage at every D-I school, as well they should.
Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I saw the Harbaugh flip-out story and wished there was a dedicated thread instead of a continuation of a nearly week-old thread.
I'm just thinking of The Game. It's going to be sweet to beat him. Again.
And I saw some people spinning this story as Harbaugh defending his players. I don't think that's really what was happening.
