Earlier today, reports surfaced that two Texas football players were under investigation for an alleged sexual assault that occurred very early Friday morning.  While neither San Antonio police nor UT officials would confirm the names of the players, head coach Mack Brown stated during a press conference Friday afternoon that two unidentified players had been suspended for the Alamo Bowl for violating team rules and were sent back to Austin.

Subsequently, multiple media outlets, including,, and the San Antonio Express-News, identified the suspended players as quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks.

As of yet, none of the sites reporting the suspensions have stated either McCoy or Hicks are a part of the SAPD’s investigation into the alleged assault.

A highly-redacted police report obtained by, among others, the Express-News paints a disturbing picture of what’s alleged to have taken place.  From that paper:

According to a police report obtained by the Express-News, the incident happened between 2 and 2:40 a.m. on Friday. The woman said she met two men at a nightclub and invited them back to her room at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk. She admitted to drinking at least four alcoholic beverages before inviting them to her room, the report said.

She told police one man had sex with her while the other stood and watched, but she didn’t remember the situation in detail.

The report didn’t give the woman’s version of how the situation escalated. It indicated that the suspects were both students, one of them a 6-foot, 180-pound white male and the other a 6-foot-2, 235-pound black male.

According to the Longhorns’ official online roster, McCoy, who is a white male, is listed at 6-2, 200 pounds while Hicks, who is a black male, is listed at 6-2, 235 pounds.

No charges have been filed and no arrests have been made in relation to the alleged incident, with the investigation remaining open and ongoing.

    McCoy, Hicks, and Texas, yeehaw! Now, get along little doggies. Theme song from “Rawhide” playing in the back ground.

    Meanwhile, Mr and Mrs McCoy have notified ESPN officials that they will not be sitting in their assigned seats during the Alamo Bowl…

    Wait, I’m confused here. Woman downs some drinks and then invites them back to her room-I assume for a prayer circle. She had sex with one while the other watched-creepy, but whatever. She did not remember the details. Where exactly did the assault take place in this scenario?

    Athletes need to be careful around these sneaky chicks they will put ur life in the ground that being said i remember the good old days being young an sharing girls with buddy’s.

  5. Legion Of Boom says: Dec 28, 2012 8:40 PM

    A little suspicious. 4 drinks and she blacked out a little here and there? How old was the girl? Doesn’t sound right if she’s college age. But definately missing a lot of facts here…

    So Hicks got some while McCoy watched? It reminds of the championship game with Gilbert getting after it and McCoy watched. I expected it to be Shipley and McCoy.

  7. goodfieldnohit says: Dec 28, 2012 9:23 PM

    We can assume that Jordan Hicks’ groin injury has healed, amiright?

  8. mithrilsoul says: Dec 28, 2012 10:11 PM

    Whether the accusation is true or not, both players are guilty of being STUPID. I mean, WTF are you doing out partying, at a different hotel than the one you are staying at, past 2:00 A.M. the night before your bowl game?!? Idiots.

  9. goodfieldnohit says: Dec 28, 2012 10:17 PM

    Hicks should also get an AIDS test, since he never learned to wrap up playing for Manny Diaz.

    Just a little old Oregon State cheerleader that had too much to drink and thought McCoy and Hicks were “Beaver Male Cheerleaders” ready to hoist her and so some hand stands over her!

    P.S. The $500 paid to her by Beaver Alumni was not money well spent . . . Hicks has been injured and Chase ain’t exactly Colt!

  11. TxGrown says: Dec 29, 2012 12:43 AM

    And McCoy watched…but of course.

  12. mogogo1 says: Dec 29, 2012 12:58 AM

    Wow, the handling of alleged assaults like this stinks. Nothing in the story suggesting any assault, no violent acts, it all sounds consensual, and these guys get crucified in the press while the other willing participant who invited two guys back to her hotel room at 2 am remains anonymous? What exactly from the story would warrant any investigation?

  13. Carolina says: Dec 29, 2012 2:12 AM

    If she said no during any point, it’s rape. Hope this helps. Her being drunk doesn’t give them the right to keep going if she said no. Her blacking out doesn’t give them the right to keep going if she said no. What she wore, what she did, what she drank, who she invited over means NOTHING if she said no at any point in the night.

    Can’t wait for the millions of thumbs downs to this.

  14. thecrazyasianinseccountry says: Dec 29, 2012 3:52 AM

    So you’re willing to ruin two young boys future because she invited them over to do whatever. So when two adults are having consensual intercourse with one another, and in the middle of their intimate struggle one saids “No” anything after, according to you is rape. How exactly is that right?
    Just by what I’ve just read, nothing illegal happened here.
    I try to avoid this subject but it really gets under my skin when people try to justify such a serious accusation so casually as you have put it…
    If the woman would have said no before the men enter her room, then absolutely fry em. Even if they were in the room and she let them know before hand that they are only drinking buddies, or poker buddies, to watch movie with, or whatever other then sex and they violated her anyway… Then sure fry em if that’s what happened…
    But from this story and the evidence shown so far, nothing was proven..
    Remembered the Duke LaCross team, anyone?!?

  15. thecrazyasianinseccountry says: Dec 29, 2012 3:58 AM

    I’m a guy, and I promised you I’ve said “No” plenty of time and the woman kept on going..
    When I tried to tell my buddies that I was violated, they laughed, and these were women buddies… Anyway, I apologized if I offended anyone and I no one thinks I’m making light of this situation.. Bc it is serious and should be taken seriously.

    the only thing these young men are guilty of right now are violating the UT 11pm curfew, and using poor judgement. Im suprised someone didnt see them out at 2am and ask them why they were there. We dont know what took place during the course of conversation with the three of them or up in the hotel room once they were in there.

    non the less, when you head to a hotel room with someone you just met at 2am, nine times out of ten, you are about to get laid, drink more, and then get laid, or you are gonna pass out sleep and get laid in the morning…I think most of us can agree on that.

    most of the people who post on this board are men, so think back to all the crazy ish you did in your late teens/early 20’s…all of the stuff you did in college or the military…the many times you had a one night stand….the many times you and your boys met a couple of chicks, shot the breeze, bought round after round, and when the club closed, everyone went and got a room and scored….

    when I think back to those crazy times in my life, Ive never forced myself on a woman and never had a woman tell me “NO” before, during or after the act….protect yourself fella’s.

  17. harbourimages says: Dec 29, 2012 8:47 AM

    Out drinking at 2:00 a.m….idiots! That alone is enough of a reason to send them home.

  18. blueinok says: Dec 29, 2012 8:47 AM

    Sexual assault on women is a serious matter. The statistics are somewhere that 6 out of 10 women will be sexually assaulted at some point in their life. So you guys, take a look at the women in your life, your mom, sister, wife, daughter, neighbor, co-worker, you are sure to find someone you know that has been violated.
    That being said, you can’t tank up on drinks, invite guys to your room, drink some more, so much that you really don’t remember everything that went on and then claim to be a victim.

    Sounds like Mack Brown should have imposed a curfew.

    Or maybe, for the conspiracy theorists, she is an accomplice for a bookie who wanted to tilt things a little bit more in his favor.

  20. Ben Koch says: Dec 29, 2012 11:38 AM

    I love that list of outlets that broke the story.

    Except that Inside Texas broke the story at least an hour before anyone else. Credit where credit is due.

  21. amosalanzostagg says: Dec 29, 2012 12:57 PM

    Did Case complete his pass to the wide receiver? Or was it fumbled and Jordan Hicks recover the fumble?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

  22. amosalanzostagg says: Dec 29, 2012 12:58 PM

    Moral to this story……..never chase strange beaver.

  23. amosalanzostagg says: Dec 29, 2012 1:01 PM

    What is the over/under on Case transferring?

    Ash was named as the starter for the Alamo Bowl.
    Is this merely an excuse now to groom Ash’s backup
    now and send a message to the McCoy’s (Case and his parents) that Case will not start at Texas?

    Heres what limited facts we do know. They retreated to the Hotel room around 2a.m. Within that same hour 2-3a.m. the police were summoned to the Hotel for a suspected sexual assalt. In my mind something unwanted took place in that room seeing that it was immediately reported. But in true fashion this will be swept away and the privledge will remain just that. Taking what they want when they want it even though someone says no.

  25. usabas1 says: Dec 29, 2012 3:09 PM

    So just a follow up comment. We ALL know the Bars close at 2a.m. So we just connot assume that they were invited up for sex…its not like they could all have gone back to the TEAM Hotel. I assume it was to continue to party and the boys looked at it different. They took what they went for. I am a man..I went to college. I have known many chicks that loved to party. I am not a Texas fan I am an OU fan. It just makes me sick every time I think about this. These boys threw so much away even if they are prven innocent they are branded. I cant imagine either of them ever taking the field again as a Longhorn. Mac has been on thin ice for 2 years now. I can only think that this is the final nail in his coffin as well. The full facts will not be given to the public immediately in any case. Some on this board assume this article to be the full facts which it isnt.

    By taking out a backup QB and a defensive player who has spent more time injured than on the field?

    I will be the first to say that something sounds fishy here, but if we are going to make a conspiracy here, lets look at the $$$$ first and not the over/under ona second (or third?) rate bowl game.

    Case McCoy gets what he deserves after being shown on TV crying his eyes out when Colt went down vs A&M a few years back.
