    I read the same article. Again, show which sources are claiming 40% (like what you're now claiming).

    Man how odd, you know how many times I and my friends have been wrongly (or rightly) accused of rape? It's zero! In fact I don't know ANYONE personally who has even been accused of rape. Isn't that weird? I know multiple women who have been raped and not brought charges though.

    It's almost enough to make you wonder if maybe this isn't an epidemic after all. But as we all know, nobody who is accused of a crime ever tries saying they didn't do it, so if the guy says it didn't happen and the cops couldn't prove it, guess she lied! (insert shrug emojis)

    Tyreek Hill, Greg Hardy, Adrian Peterson are all still in the league and they did much much worse than Mo did.

    You two are off the rails right now. Which is sad because you are generally some of the better posters here.

    Either that or you have a really stupid, unfounded stance that at best you exaggerated by 26.6666% and you should stop saying it because even if there were any factual evidence for your claim (there isn't) it's still a really bad, inflammatory take

    I'm biased because of the false allegations that I have seen thrown around. People I've been to school with and worked with were almost ruined because of it. Most of those situations were very similar to this one.

    Regardless, 40% is a huge number.

    With everything else in the news, the best thing to do is wait and see if other info comes out.

    There is an even more interesting tweet from Jan 23 on his account. I don't know how to embed. Basically about "girls should get jail time for lying about rape."

    Was this consentual between the 3 in the video? We don't know. Was this filming of it consentual? We don't know. Legally should Maurice have kept it on his phone or shown it to anyone? Obviously not. Should his life be messed up because people in his peer group did something bad and he made a bad choice subsequently?

    I don't care what they've done. If we choose to keep this kid on the team, we are going to pay for it 20-fold in the press. Frankly, if we knew about this before the season started like some have reported, Frost is going to be crucified in the press by women's groups.

    False vs actual rape us not the issue. It is Mo’s idiotic decision to share the video with the girl in question. The fact that was tweeting for someone (an Iowegian) to “suck his ————“ in Dec 2018 proves he hasn’t learned a damn thing. Low impulse, trash behavior.

    Good grief. More lazy/absent PR work by the team and the athletic department. It should be part of somebody's job to go through the account of every one of these kids on a regular basis and make them scrub it of crap like that.

    Unpopular but if I'm the coach I don't let my players have public social media profiles for exactly these reasons. With 100-200 dudes in their late teens and early 20s, there are guaranteed to be some dumb, irresponsible things posted. Or worse. Save yourself the headache.

    From what I know of him Frost likely doesn't give a shit about what radical intersectional feminists think of how he runs his program. I believe he cares about his players and will take the twitter mobs mudslinging to give the kid a second chance

    I figured all high-profile college programs have someone who monitors the social media of student-athletes. We have at least a dozen GA/Quality Control/personnel guys just for football. They're always tweeting memes whenever we land a recruit, but apparently don't see vulgar tweets by our current players.

    This kind of tool or a different one?

    In August 2011, the Omaha World-Herald reported that Bruning had purchased a lakeside house valued at $675,000 near the Platte Riverin partnership with two Nelnet executives, almost a year after he and his office had been accused of acting favorably toward the student loan company by not enforcing payment of a $1 million judgment awarded to the State of Nebraska when Nelnet was under fire for alleged improper business practices.[15][16]

    If everything I'm reading is true, we would get completely skewered in the press if we keep him on the team. Shaming what will be considered by women's groups as a 'victim' could potentially cause the Lawrence Phillips dirt to be brought up again. We would get hammered in the press.

    I suspect he's got more "just win baby" to him than he lets on, but he needs to be smarter than this. You can make the slimy play, but you have to make it by the book.

    "We're aware of the allegations against Maurice, he will cooperate fully with the investigation, he has voluntarily enrolled in counseling to ensure he understands the seriousness of the matter and will be taking part in voluntary community service speaking engagements to combat these kinds of activities. There will be additional measures taken but we will be handling those in-house in conjunction with our team Unity Council BLAH BLAH BLAH."

    How hard is it to craft that statement and be out in front of the story?

    Is the DA office charging the other guy in the video? They should should charge both. If not that’s f’ued. Washington did make a mistake by sending the video but he was not involved with any sexual act and recording the video so that law is stupid. They should investigate who the video was sent to in school and see if each person have the video.

    I'll be surprised if it goes as big as the stuff at OSU did, but it's not going to be good press.

    I think he is gone. If he's out, Mills doesn't make it, Jones isn't 100%, then we are screwed at RB.

    Do a lot of you not know that minors charged with crimes are pretty much always given probation? Kids don't go to prison unless they're being tried as an adult. In extreme cases they get sent away to a corrections facility with other minors but probation is the norm.

    And that would be the dumbest fking choice of his career. Do you want the entire Lawrence Phillips incidents brought up again? Do you want the Christian Peter incidents being brought up again? That's where this could potentially be headed. If what he did with the video and caption is true, broom him and move on.

    Count me as not really worried about RB depth even if he ends up off the team. Regardless of whether Mills makes it, they have a lot of bodies at that position. Not saying anyone ends up being elite, but they'll have enough for a rotation.

    I didn't read all 7 pages of this, but until he is convicted of a felony it shouldn't result in getting kicked off the team


    From my point of view there is a lot of grey area, and could be something like this.

    Let's assume this video surfaced when they were dating and was the reason they broke up. It may be a case where she said "Hey congrats on getting a scholarship to NU, maybe we should meet up some time"... He posted the video saying "Remember this hoe (sic)" Basically saying I'm not getting back together because of (Insert Video)... I have seen nothing out yet that says the Video was rape, and not consensual.

    That is just one of many scenarios that could of happened where Mo Washington is 100% clean

    No way am I saying what he did wasn't mean and wrong. Just saying quit being so quick to cast judgement.

    I'm not terribly clear on why those incidents from 24-ish years ago are particularly relevant in light of this one. Most people outside of NU have no real memory of what happened there in the 90s.
