    What percentage of sexual assault cases end up with the woman lying about it? You may want to change your answer.

    No additional followup, so we didn't bother to follow up with Mo.

    Exactly. Sounds like they knew not just that it happened but that it was being pursued as a criminal matter prior to his arrival on campus. The climate around crimes against women already was what it was at that time. It's not like they can argue they didn't think anyone would regard it as a big deal.

    So the only way it doesn't strike me as really dumb that they've been silent on this is if they're betting on sitting him out for the Spring Game and everyone forgetting all about it by the time real games roll around in the fall. Which they will forget.

    Would that work? Absolutely. However it's a lot more slimy and underhanded than the image SF & Co. have sold of themselves publicly. He's been very shrewd with his opportunities in front of a mic to this point, I'd like to think he'd handle something like this better.

    He argued the state's case in the Supreme Court. That was his job That is VERY different than handling a minor accused with selling a few grams of pot. You have to be a pretty major dealer for the State Attorney General's office to get involved with a marijuana charge.

    About 2/3 of them? IDK the percentages, but I know it happens a lot especially in cases like this and cases where race is a factor (could be in play here).

    Hey man, why don't you take your "all women are lying about rape" BS somewhere else and never bring it back. Ever.

    Agree. I was responding to dingle's post when he said at the time "to repeat, It was consensual sex between teens."

    Statement from Nebraska Athletic Department:

    “Last fall we were contacted by the Nebraska Attorney General’s office and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln police department and made aware that officials in California were interested in interviewing Maurice Washington about a prior incident. Details were not shared and there was no additional follow up with the Nebraska Athletic Department. Recently, we were made aware that charges may be filed against Maurice in California. We have not had a chance to review the charges, and will continue to monitor this ongoing legal process.”

    A bunch. A lot. Often. A significant amount.

    Throw me a few million and I'll do the study for you.

    All attorneys sound like tool when they're doing their job correctly. Just make sure you have a good tool when you need one.

    Oh I'm sorry, it's not *all* of them it's just probably this one based on your (please read with full sarcasm) very detailed knowledge of the case and persons involved. Please, don't let me distract you from not finding the stats on your "like 2/3 of them" claim because they don't exist.

    Had to do with an Iowa fan trolling Mo and Mo got pretty vulgar. Something Scott Frost wouldn't want him tweeting out I'm guessing.

    I mean the Iowa fan had it coming just for being an Iowa fan, but it showed some of Mo's true character....

    And you have very detailed knowledge of the case and persons involved? Didn't think so.

    The reality is that this particular case fits the same mold as other false allegations. If there were any chance that this was an actual assault/rape, there would've been a much harsher punishment for the individuals involved.

    Yeah, this sounds pretty terrible. Mo should never have sent anything nor should he have kept the video. I can imagine a suspension coming, just for the stupidity of the actions and how messed up and disrespectful that is, and who knows, it's entirely possible that he could and should be prosecuted in California.

    It's smart to wait and see from our standpoint as fans and social media ding dongs; I am not sure what I would do in Frost's shoes, though. Is it smart to adopt a wait-and-see approach (especially if not all facts are known yet), or is it good to jump on it quickly and make an example of Washington? And if so, how severe should the punishment be?

    A lot to consider, going forward.

    As for false allegations versus actual assaults, I can tell you that anecdotally, I've known a couple of women that have without a doubt lied about their experiences for attention or to get back at someone.

    Having said that, those are only a couple of examples of some really bad, unstable, manipulative individuals; the vast majority of these things are legit, don't get reported often enough, and are absolutely something to be taken very seriously.

    Yeah, I'm sure that's what he did. It was done with the intent to shame the girl. With moronic decisions like this, we now know why this kid barely made it academically. Stupid stupid stupid!!

    The answer is about 2% so you can stop posting like an idiot.

    No I'm just waiting for you to produce a single shred of evidence to justify you talking like you're some kind of "false rape story" expert over here. I mean you are, right? You're a detective, or at least a social worker, ER doctor, somebody who has anything at all to do with actually knowing what percentage of rape accusations are later admitted to be false?

    I mean surely you wouldn't pull something that obnoxious and inflammatory straight out of your ass, right?

    I read the entire article and he should be gone...immediately. I don't think we should be fighting to keep a kid like this, because it will cost us big time in the press.

    Not even close. Depending on the source, unfounded allegations make up close to 40% of rape accusations.

    Anecdotally, I can tell you that in all but one of the cases where I had heard that someone was raped or assaulted, the allegations turned out to be completely false. In those cases the embarrassment of people finding out was usually what spurred the false claims.

    Anecdotal evidence isn't really great...that's why I qualified my statement that I've known of a few liars in my time, but also that the vast...VAST majority of these things are legit.

    Not trying to start any crap, sincerely asking, what makes you think he should be gone immediately? Just curious.

    I stated before that some punishment right now is probably a good idea (like, issue a suspension until further details come are made available), but that it is hard to know what to do while the legal stuff is being sorted out.

    I agree about the anecdotal evidence not painting the entire picture. This case is just so similar to ones that I'd heard about that were false accusations though.

    Regardless, 2% is a low figure. Obviously beaver and O are super triggered right now, so it's no use reasoning with them at the moment.

    I have a few buddies that have been falsely accused. Their lives are still ruined even after the women were proved to have lied or admitted they fabricated the whole story. Falsely accusing someone of sexual assault needs to be punished just as hard as sexual assault.

    I don't know, but to me, it does seem like it could be a case of the girl not being completely transparent. That being said, it was one of the dumbest things M. Washington could have done to send the video to her with that caption. I mean super dumb. I don't think he leaves Frost any choice other than to boot him. We'll get eaten alive by women's groups.

    Who cares about false allegations with regards to Washington’s involvement?

    He is being charged with having in his possession a copy of a sex tape where 3 minors were having sex. He then decided to distribute that video to someone that was not the “owner” of the video.

    Him having having that video and dispersing said video, is no different than you or I doing the same thing. That is the crime.

    The rest of the ancillary bullshit is just so irrelevent and nothing more than people trying to defend a football player and the Nebraska athletics department

    Speaking of the statement, that is a text book definition of trying to establish plausible deniability.
