You are trying to place blame on the player. How is that any less pathetic?
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
IF he was falsely accused, then how did he "win"?
He's still playing and has not suffered in any way...she's dead. You tell me who you think came out ahead?
The RANT is a Romper Room for Degenerates - jwe
She had a history of depression and at least one report had said she had thoughts of suicide long before the alleged incident. IF it was a false claim, the player sure as hell didn't "win". People like you will think he did it regardless of the facts or lack of.
LMAO at "not suffered in any way". So you would have no problem if people in your community thought you may have sexual assault?

Because she doesn't play for ND, duh.
In all seriousness this is a horrible story, but the chick writing this article is pretty dramatic. ND did an investigation, so did the police and they found no wrongdoing. Why would ND kick this kid off the team and ruin his career just because some girl accused him of something with no evidence to back it. Not fair to the kid.
And people like you think he didn't do it regardless of anything.
I understand (and accept) that I'm not going to change your mind.... in fact, I really don't care. Not sure you can accept the same.
Already said I have no idea if he did it or not, but feel free to continue to make crap up. It is obvious you have no problem doing so.
You may not have posted that you have no idea if he did it or not, but you are crazy if you don't think you are implying that he did nothing.
It is clear from what I have written and I am implying nothing. I am stating it directly. There is no evidence to prove what did or did not happen. It is a he said, she said. Based on that they could not bring charges. You have no problem still convicting, I do. I hope you are never on a jury.
Hey that's funny... I actually have jury duty on Monday!
Dude has a Nancy Grace complex. GUILTY,GUILTY,GUILTY.. HISS,HISS,HISS!!

Actually is kinda funny...
Unless you are the defendant
The best part is that I COMPLETLY forgot about this. I travel a lot for my job and I have been dreading this. If not for the "reminder" I would have been in contempt for not showing up on Monday.
Thanks ND fans!!!
Obviously here to serve and protect the innocent lol
Though unrecognizable to those who knew her, the portrait of Lizzy being passed around does have some bold strokes in common with the caricatures of other women who have reported being sexually assaulted at Notre Dame over the decades. In 1974, a South Bend woman who was hospitalized and then spent a month in a psychiatric facility after reporting being gang-raped by six Notre Dame football players was described by a top university administrator as “a queen of the slums with a mattress tied to her back.” No charges were filed, but the accused were suspended for a year for violating school rules. At the time, even so revered a figure as Holy Cross Fr. Theodore Hesburgh said: “We didn’t have to talk to the girl; we talked to the boys.” Hesburgh, who is 94, made that remark to Notre Dame alumnus Robert Sam Anson, who in his student days had founded the campus newspaper. Anson quoted Hesburgh in a story very much like this one, written 35 years ago.
Those who argue that, if anything, Notre Dame is too hard on its athletes regularly cite the 2002 expulsion of three players and a former player accused of gang-raping a woman, though none of them served a day in jail. But their accuser insists they were only expelled after officials failed to dissuade her from going public: “First they said, ‘No one’s going to believe you.’ ” When she went to South Bend police anyway, Notre Dame officials “treated me horribly at every opportunity. I had PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder] and I was afraid they [the players] were going to come after me again, but [school officials] wouldn’t let me park my car on campus because they said that wouldn’t be fair to the other students. When I tried to make an appointment with the counseling center, they called me back and said they couldn’t see me because of pending legal matters, though the legal matter they were talking about was the state versus these four rapists.”
"We didn't have to talk to the girl, we talked to the boys"
The ND difference.
