No, the alleged former live in girlfriend is the one who is alleging assault early this morning.  Same girl that posted the pictures.

More details on the allegations in the second report. 

Thompson also accused Elliott of striking her "several times" and "leaving bruises on her arms" over a five-day period from Saturday to Wednesday, according to a second police report. Elliott, however, told police that he never touched Thompson in "a harmful manner," saying she suffered the bruises during a bar fight.

Thompson told police that she lived with Elliott for approximately three months, but the running back stated that he only payed for her rent and co-signed on her vehicle.

Austin Ward just stated on twitter that there is now a second police report issued by Columbus PD today.  It also has conflicting accounts but I am sure more information will be released.

Not good.  A few months ago some other girl snapchatted pics of Zeke sleeping in the background and the accuser was identified in some of the stories as his GF. So there is some history there.

Also of note, its Zeke's birthday.

Simon, the Big Ten defensive player of the year as a senior, was not as good as a freshman Joey Bosa?  Come on.  Bosa of course ended up being superior and was an freshman all-american, but you dismiss the talent on that 2009 team like nothing.  I listed plenty of talent on 2009 that would have started on this year's team, especially on defense. 

And I said the Oline is worth debating, but this team has much better oline coaching.  Cordle, Adams, and Brewster all would have easily challenged the 2 deep or started on this team.

Considering the abuse I have seen some drunk browns' fans give to visiting fan bases, this is not just a Pittsburgh problem.  Both are blue-collar towns that love to drink...and that's where any real issue comes in. 

If you wear an opposing team's jersey into an NFL stadium, expect to get some flack.  And if you are in a rust belt city of a rival, you better have thick skin.

Back to the topic at hand...as suggested above, there are a lot of restaurants around PNC/Heinz Field that will accommodate you.  Mullens, Bettis Grille, Bar Louie, Burgatory, Titled Kilt, McFaddens, are all down there.  I have heard good things about the Beerhead Bar, but have no idea if they have Tvs.  http://beerheadbar.com/beer/our-expertise/

A LOT more?  Seriously?  I am sorry, but Boom Herron would start over Weber on this year's squad.  So would Devier Posey, Jake Ballard, and maybe even Dane S (who would be a nice slot guy).  I won't go into the offensive line, but with competent line coaching, the 2009 team had plenty of talent.  On defense, Cam Heyward, Thaddeus Gibson, Checkwa, Hines, Coleman, Homan and Rolle would all have be starters or in 2 deep.  Doug Worthington would certainly compete for time in the middle with the unproven guys right now.  John Simon, Nate Ebner, and Jonathon Newsome were freshmen on that team. 

Until the young guys prove it on the field, I think its premature to make a statement that there is a lot more talent on this year's team when 2009 was full of guys who spent time on the fields on sunday.  Maybe 2009 wasn't as deep, but it lead to the 2010 team that was extremely close to playing for a national title.  There was plenty of talent on that roster.

Was the JTB allegations ever proven?  JTB also called the police that night claimed she charged at him and wouldn't leave.  That was a clear he-said she-said. 

I thought the DUI punishment was light for JTB though...a team captain getting one in the middle of the season is never a good look.

He is nice to meet.  I met him through friends when I was in undergrad, then ran into him one time when he was taking two of his daughters to the state wrestling tournament at the Schott.  

He was recently at the UFC Fight Night in Pittsburgh.  I was watching him interact with the crowd around him - someone sent their little boy up to him to say hello.  Mark traded high fives with him, then he traded hats having fun with the kid.  At the end, he took the kid's hat, signed it, gave it back to him then had a talk with him for short time.

I did find it sad that Mark had a go fund me set up months ago by his longtime friend/training partner Wes Sims for Mark's medical expenses for the hip surgeries, since he had no health care coverage. For his family's sake, I hope he isn't drowning in debt due to the expenses.

FYI Curt, I believe the fella on the far left in the picture is Guy Mezger, an MMA/kickboxing legend in his own right.  UFC 13 Lightweight Tournament winner, former world kickboxing title holder.

Indeed.  SI did an update on Mark Kerr last year.  He's had a rough go of it.  The problem with being pioneers is that the money doesn't come until later...Coleman, Randleman, and Kerr would be superstars in today's MMA for their exciting fights and personalities.

When they took away head butts, they really removed a great part of his offense.  He was unstoppable until then. 

Mark is on a crusade to get Randleman inducted into the UFC HOF, which is deserving.  It would be nice if OSU would do the same for him.

Destro might be your 'fan' on this site.  Either that, or its the firemen who were dispatched to the towers because "cigar smoke won't set off the detectors".

I still recall punching that damn carpeted wall (or whatever that berber crap was on the walls) thinking there was some give to it after another FP mortal combat finish...ouch.
