Oregon Suspends Basketball Players After Rape Investigation

Welp, this is /facepalm inducing. From Deadspin:

Oregon Ducks freshman forward Brandon Austin and sophomore guard Damyean Dotson have been suspended and Dominic Artis is transferring, following a rape investigation involving all three men. After investigating and interviewing the victim, all three suspects and other witnesses, the district attorney declined to prosecute because of insufficient evidence.

With the federal government cracking down on how universities handle reported sexual assaults, I doubt schools will hesitate with to cut ties with even alleged rapists.

Before any tears are spilled over these three men: The full police report can be found here, and it's not for the feint of heart.
