Well, it starts on the university campus with the campus police and administration as this is where the alleged sexual assault took place.  They have an obligation to look into the allegations in the same fashion that Penn State had an obligation to investigate in the Jerry Sandusky case (not only the actions but the coverup).  Local police will logically get involved as well as local and state District Attorney's.  

"We have a situation on campuses across the country where a vindictive student can get a fellow student thrown out of school simply with creating a perception of guilt even after law enforcement finds no crime was committed."

We also have a situation on campuses across the country where entitled athletes feel they can get away with anything because they are part of the program.   Should we disregard allegations by generalizing accusers as "vindictive students" or because Billy Bob, the states attorney wearing an FSU tie, says "nothing to see here, move along"?

That said, do you really believe, based on the published reports to date, that the investigation was followed through fully with no bias, influence by alumni/backers/the football team, conflicts of interest, etc.?  Nothing smells here?

Frimmel - Some might argue that the alleged victim did not receive her due process.  Do you have daughters or maybe a niece?

In just his 2nd game as a starter.  JT is light years ahead of the VTech game performance.  Played today, I believe it would have been a different story.

Will say, excellent pizza.

Best fish taco's I have ever had are at a dive in Old Scottsdale called Loco Patron.  Great food, cheap beer, outside seating...mmmmmm

Probably because he took a test, failed, and the team felt the need to communicate why he would not be playing.  Manage the message.

That cannon won't do him any good if he has to wait for the play to develop with this current offensive line.  Last night would have been no different with Jones at QB.  What was needed last night was better play calling to defeat the blitz.  Sorry, thats not a long pass.

Sorry, what changed the game was Herman's inability to call a play to counter the 8 Hokies in the box and pinning their ears back on the rush.  Three things that will slow that down.  Quick slant (worked once then forgotten), screen passes, or use the tight end on quick pass.  You can't continue to call 30 yard patterns that need time for the play to develop with a blitz coming.  You have to call plays that allow the QB to get rid of the ball quickly.

Bay Village, proud alum and Chelsea fan here.

Love Friedel but his expression was priceless when Chelsea won the Champions League and knocked Tottenham out of the next years competition as a result (Tottenham finished 4th in BPL but bumped due to CL champ getting auto bid for next season).  Priceless.

Wondering if Spielman would consider a recruiting role with the team.  Not many with as much passion for tOSU as him.

Best of luck to MV.
