Suspended per Espn.. Damn sexual assault, investigation. I mean they could be innocent but not a good look.
Too logical, too obvious, too simple, therefore unacceptable to this board...
Nice. Innocent until proven guilty, but if guilty, they deserve to be booted out of college football.
Thanks for going to Texas, Jordan instead of here. So far you've contributed to a team that hasn't done shit since you've been there and if this is proven true you will be known as a sex offender who never did shit, either. Over. Rated.
Easy buddy. I played with hicks in high school and am still good friends with him today. He is one of the most level headed kids I have ever been around. He is an all around amazing person who has never had any off the field issues or grade problems. This is a very bad situation for him but I believe there is nothing here but accusations. Still doesn't look good but I actually know this kid on a personal basis and he is nowhere near the type of kid to pull that. I still talk him with him till this day to transfer to tOSU and just because he chose Texas (childhood favorite) over Ohio state doesn't mean I have ever treated him different. He's also battled several injuries in his time at Texas and was behind an nfl guy to start. He is by no means over rated and would hands down have started here with the weak LBs we have. Again he is a great human being and a great football player. Sometimes the people on this site need to take off the shades and realize that NOT every football player in Ohio has the passion for Ohio State that we have. It's just the way it is. This kid was a Texas lock but he did love tressel and admitted he was the hardest coach to say no to. Not trying to bash you but I just want people to know the great person he is because I ACTUALLY KNOW HIM and to wait till the facts come out before rushing to judgement. I have no doubts that if he were at OSU he would be a top 3 fan favorite based on the person he is, his endless work ethic, and natural ability to play the game. That's my 2 cents but what do I know? I'm only good friends with him...
As already stated: innocent until proven guilty. Hopefully it's a false accusation, but time will tell.
I like to stay away from judgement on these things because I know there a lot of lying bitches out there who will do anything to ruin a mans life.
I know people too. Knew a guy for ten years. Went to church with him and bowled with him every Sat. night. Know where he is now? He is serving 70 years in prison for raping his 17 year old daughter over the past same decade. Know what I know? You don't really know shit about anyone but yourself.

Great point but I also know that hicks is not your friend. He's innocent
I see gangbang gone bad, she prbly wanted it & felt guilty after
That is what I was thinking. The article from ESPN didnt have many details but since there are two guys being investigated that is probably what happened. These are two college football players, I am pretty sure they do not need to rape a girl to get laid. Girl felt guilty, like a whore, ashamed, ect.. in the morning. Now of course this is just a guess. If these two guys did force themselves on her than I hope they get what they deserve.
What is it that Jim Tressel used to say about being 'out' beyond a certain time of the night?
"Nothing good happens after Midnight" -Jim Tressel
Man female logic is really hard to understand, I guess she was drunk or high or on some drugs. Plus come on Texas football players , don't have a hard time getting tail.
No charges have been filed , so I guess they are still looking into it. I am assuming innocent till proven guilty.
Girl doesn't want to feel like slut.
Maybe they were high or drunk or something and didn't realize no meant no. They got sent home for something.
Aztec, I used to tell my kids nothing good happens after midnight. If your out past that then it's a good chance something bad will happen to you.
Well, guilty or not, they obviously don't have much respect for Mack Brown or the rules of the football team to miss curfew.
Mack is on his way out, I'm sensing the same "loss of control" of his last few teams much like Coop lost our boys back in the day.
Once a team doesn't fear the coach, they do what they want.
Yep. Wonder if Mack is going to end up like Bowden and be forced out or if he'll "get the picture" and retire on his own.
This reminds me of what happened to that player from Kansas State the year we played them in the Bowl game, their QB I think. I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out that this chick was an Oregon State student/fan.
Brady Hoke licked the pizza boy's taint to get the scUM job.
I am not familiar with this -- what was the deal with OSU / KSU in 2003?
I don't need to be Hick's friend to know people are capable of evil acts no matter how good they seemed to be. Ted Bundy was very charismatic and well liked individual. Probably had lots of friends who thought well of him. Maybe Ted Bundy was innocent too?
I'm sure Mr. Hicks is very fortunate to have such a loyal friend like you. However, friendship does not determine guilt or innocence.And unless you were there......you really don't know anymore than we do. And while we all hope nobody would committ such a horrific crime we all know it still happens.
Fuck Hicks and the rape truck he rode down to Texas on. Big Ben, another innocent in your eyes im sure, says whats up
I also read that the victim invited these 2 players back to her hotel room after 2am, and "THINKS" she was sexually assaulted.
She "Thinks". Hmmmm it's either you did or didn't. To me it's a lets see what I can get from this - nothing OK then nothing happened. Cash and incentives - well then hell yea I got sexually assaulted.
or she passed out and they thought, Hmmmmm it's ok to have a little fun. Heck we are already breaking team rules what the hell lets really screw up.
I see your point and I hope you are correct because I smell something bad about this girl, but I also know you never know someone like you might think you do.
Everyone who ever knew Bundy (not Al) said what a quiet and refined person he was. I guess being nice, quiet and refined was how he lured all his victims.
My dad used to say this too. I replied that "Nothing good ever happend til AFTER midnight."
Ell Roberson was busted for sexual assault just before the Bowl game. I'm pretty sure he was suspended for the game.
