The issue here is that they very well may have had sex, but the issue of consent and of any other evidence included in the rape kit are what make that act into a criminal one.  That's why it's such a complicated process to prosecute, since you do have to prove a lack of consent in order to satisfy mens rea (and it also helps make the charge's validity pass the reasonable doubt standard to the jury).

The problem is that it has been reported the accuser declined to be interviewed by police on the night she took the rape kit, so it wouldn't help Conley to do his interviews until she does hers, and the Cleveland PD needs to interview the other two people in the room (personally, although IANAL or a cop, I'd interview those two first, then use those interviews to strengthen the questioning of Conley).

Larry Johnson totally sold him on OSU Football being the best path to the FBI with two words:  "Johnny Utah"

Thanks for bringing up this point.  I hadn't seriously considered it, but you are probably right.  It gets their foot in the door in a big way, considering how much folks in Columbus and Central Ohio will follow the lead of OSU in contracting (since they can see how well said contractor performs in real life, dealing with an advanced bureaucracy)

I have to wonder if it's so they can access A) the baby experimental Nuclear Reactor on west campus for research they aren't allowed to do in France, and B) access to a large supply of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers to staff their operations in the U.S. if they are planning on being a new major utility player.

The listing linked has ended, but I picked it up for $4.99.  Now, if either Brown or McCall does anything great, it's going to be worth some money.  I'll probably frame it, and type up an explanation.  Spend all of $10 and 5 minutes on it, for a funny bit of Buckeye lore.

And here's the other thing.  If you play football, you get a waiver for the weight requirements from the academies during the season.  That might help bigger guys (see Villanueva of the Steelers as an example) learn to manage their weight.  I think I read that Villanueva was 220 lbs as an Army Ranger, and is now in the 300 range.
