My guess would be that CS tried to report a bunch of past incidents in '15 during the divorce because she wanted the police reports to help bolster her case. ZS might have even admitted to something happening but due to jurisdiction and passage of time, the Powell PD wouldn't take action.
Well, now that ZS is unemployable for anything close to what he was making, child support will have to be modified and the children will need to be signed up for Medicaid since they've lost his benefits. Doubt anyone thought about this before they started airing all of ZS's dirty laundry.
This has been one of my biggest issues with this entire story. I keep seeing articles praising McMurphy for his "investigative journalism". How is it not obvious to everyone by this point that he's only had one source the entire time? What's even worse is that the source is locked in a contentious custody battle and is clearly using him in what appears to be a misguided attempt to gain an advantage in the proceedings.
Also keep in mind that shortly after the incident a divorce/custody case was opened and both parties were represented by counsel. A lot of people were involved in this matter, including a family court judge.
I think this is spot on. Probably worth adding that the well known volatility and substance abuse issues also likely played a role in the responses of law enforcement and the court. Rather than taking complaints seriously, they were chalked up to "she/he was just drunk again". I'd guess this is the reason Courtney wasn't granted a protective order in 2015 and the judge granted joint custody in the divorce. I'm also sure OSU AD was aware of all of this. Unfortunately, no one in 2015 foresaw the rise of the #MeToo movement and the fact that something like this was always a ticking tiimebomb once it was discovered by outsiders.
Many police departments will not release incident reports under FOIA that did not result in criminal charges. This is primarily due to privacy reasons, especially in domestic situations.
Calling him an "insider" is being generous. Petzold is a sophomore at Central Michigan.
FWIW Kam was MIA during Carmen Ohio and in the post game locker room videos after some of the recent games prior to the suspension. Not sure what that was about but maybe something else has been going on for a while.
Getting a place of his own would be a good first step.
I had the exact same thought. It's not unheard of for there to be changes in someone's personality when a they have a medical condition related to brain function.
Herman hiring and covering for Beck likely wasn't appreciated either.
OSU is recruiting him as a H. But you're right. You never know. Maybe he'll gain 200 lbs and be a DL.
Gill is going to be a H-back at OSU.
Suspected this might happen if he didn't crack the 2-deep and Gill coming in next season.
Yup. And exactly the type of player the program has sorely missed the last few years.
It's really only a matter of time before some school takes a "educational" trip to a luxury island resort. At that point, the NCAA will have no choice but to ban these trips.
Based on what I've read, the "Go Blue Guarantee" would apply to approximately 3.6% of students admitted to UM. For reference, the median family income for UM undergrads is $154,000. Most of the students that will be eligible for "free" tuition are already receiving substantial financial aid packages. More or less, this appears to be a sort of rebranding of the existing aid package for a small percentage of students. The school president referred to it as "streamlining". They're also raising tuition for the rest of the students, so a little good PR can't hurt.
They said there's no cap, but there's only so many low income Michigan high school graduates with the grades/scores to get into UM. I'm sure they have a very good idea of approximately how many that is.
Not sure how the school president and AD Mark Hollis survive all of this. The Dr. Nassar stuff is as bad as Penn State given the number of complaints and warning signs that they disregarded.
If he's still employed there next year.
Based on the news this week about the Title IX investigation, all 3 of the accused players are likely to get expelled. Add in the other roster losses due to arrests and racial slurs and things are looking pretty bleak going forward for MSU fans.
But should Thad be the one doing the rebuilding? Obviously he's having trouble finding players that want to play for him.
Dantonio has been very successful with giving "second chances" and sweeping things under the rug. Delton Williams, MacGarrett Kings, Rather Hall brawl, etc. It was only a matter of time before the culture he built blew up in his face.
I'll be surprised if Dantonio is still coaching there a year from now.
Exactly. While the conditioning and strength program has clearly been lacking, there has also been several recent cases of players who either weren't provided with proper motivation or were simply indifferent.
