    Win at all costs: Recruiting Rapists

    Ma’lik Richmond, convicted of rape while in HS, is on the current YSU roster.

    I'm out. I can't support a team that recruits rapists. I believe in second chances, which is why I initially supported Bo, Carl, and many players with checkered pasts. Some mistakes can't be made even once. Rape? NFW. Maybe I'll follow YSU FB again after Bo leaves after the 2018 season. I say this as a previously lifelong fan, alumni, and donor. My wife is a JMU alum, so until YSU FB becomes respectable again, go Dukes.

    Re: Win at all costs: Recruiting Rapists

    Personally, I don't see a problem, penguin nation. Seems to be norm and on par for the american football life:

    In May, Steubenville superintendent Michael McVey, 51, was charged with felony counts of tampering with evidence and obstructing justice, and misdemeanor counts of falsification and obstructing official business in relation to the case.
    In April, volunteer football coach Matt Belardine was sentenced to 10 days in jail for one count of making a false statement and one count of enabling underage drinking. His house was the scene of an underage drinking party that preceded the incident.
    Also in April, wrestling coach Seth Fluharty was ordered to perform 20 hours of community as punishment for failing to report the rape.


    Again, what's the problem? I see nothing but american normalcy w/ respect to illegal malfeasance about a football program. americans love their beloved [football] and the "win @ all cost" attitude that seemingly goes w/ it. Even the farce that the ncaa is proudly displaying w/ the precious apr dealio was 40+ years long overdue. The ONLY thing most americans care about w/ regards to an athletic "student" is "can he block, run, catch, or pass?" baylor, smu, youngstown st, florida, florida st, tennessee, uofh, et al.

    You have every right to be pissed here. I would be. Bo is already known for not having the shiniest reputation and this isn't doing himself any favors.

    We're not talking about an allegation here and a potential cover-up, he said she said situation. He was actually convicted.

    The Dukes welcome you. That almost must have made for an interesting december/january in your household, unless your wife just doesn't care about cfb.

    The rapist's attorney's statement makes it sound like Ma'lik is the victim.

    We had a lot of fun with it. We couldn't make the game but had a house party and back yard tailgate instead. She mercifully didn't gloat too much.

As with each other obstacle, Ma'Lik has met it squarely, lifted his chin, and set his shoulders; he is braced for the balance of his life."

    Sound like he is looking for a medal- or a chest to pin it on. A heroic rapist- just what every team needs. What a load of crap.

    So will he have to sit on the bus when the team visits Children's Hospital since he is a register sexual predator?
    I STILL HATE MARSHALL!

    That's a level of spin I thought we were only getting out of washington.
