Mack Brown: Jordan Hicks, Case McCoy have been reinstated to team

Case McCoy AP

Following their suspension from the Alamo Bowl for violating team rules, Texas quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks have been reinstated to the team, per a release from Longhorns coach Mack Brown Sunday night.

“Obviously when you break team rules there’s a certain amount of trust that has been broken, and that will be addressed with further discipline,” Brown said in a statement. “That discipline will be handled within the team.”

McCoy and Hicks were sent home Dec. 28 by Brown, the same day the San Antonio Police said two unnamed Longhorn players were at the center of an alleged sexual assault investigation.

Hicks’ attorney, Perry Minton, said last week that no charges have been filed against Hicks or McCoy in the matter. Minton also said he was informed that the case was closed, although the SAPD stated that the case is, in fact, ongoing.

McCoy primarily served as the Longhorns’ backup QB and Hicks spent most of the season sidelined with a groin injury.

    How many people do you have to kill to be permanently kicked off a team in Texas? Six?

    Or maybe they didn’t do anything wrong? Not a Texas fan, but man you are some judgemental people.

    Hmm, how exactly do you know this was a rape? From what has been released publicly sounds like a young lady got tipsy, did something of her own accord, then later felt ashamed of it. Maybe kind of sleezy on the players part one watching, etc), but nothing illegal. The fact that there were no charges filed for a few weeks kind of indicates a problem.

    By law, a drunk person cannot give consent. Having sex with someone that is intoxicated is rape according to the law. Drunk hook-ups happen all the time, but they technically qualify as rape. Its not about regretted sex the vast majority of time. False rape reporting is almost non-existent statistically speaking. It is FAR more likely she was raped than not. Also, rape cases are incredibly difficult to get to trial and get a guilty verdict. They may never be found guilty of rape, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. It only means it couldn’t be proven. She has nothing to gain from a false rape claim, but the players have everything to lose if found guilty.

    Responsible nailed it, she said she didn’t remember anything, irresponsible on her part, but that doesn’t excuse their judgment and actions…and with the constant legal issues on the team, they unfortunately are guilty until proven innocent in public eye right now. And this is one of the worst

    So, if they (the players) were drunk also then? Could they (or at least the one who nailed her while the other one watched) not countercharge with rape on her.

    I agree from a statistical standpoint, you may be correct, but lets also not forget the Duke Lacrosse thing just a few years ago.

    At the least we are talking about questionable
    character!

    Stunned the two weren’t hit with that almost death penalty most coaches use to intimidate the team:

    The obligatory 1st game suspension against
    Northwest Southeast School for the blind…….

    Rape, murder, arson & rape.

    (a) For the purpose of preventing resistance, the offender substantially impairs the other person’s judgment or control by administering any drug, intoxicant, or controlled substance to the other person surreptitiously or by force, threat of force, or deception.

    This is the definition of tape in Ohio. Did these guys get her to drink or was she drinking on her own. I don’t know their intentions, but why do u put yourself in this situation?

    Wait college kids having drinks and sex = questionable character? Give me a break. The rape laws are written like that to make it easier to convict real rape not to stop normal Saturday night at college. By the woman’s own admission she had 4 or 5 drinks over several hours. This was not a case of taking advantage of a girl that was hammered.

  12. responsiblemen says: Jan 14, 2013 8:56 AM

    @jimbo – according to the law, yes. Then the burden of proof would fall on them. As I mentioned before, rape is hard to prove. Unfortunately, female on male rape is even harder because we have been socialized to believe that men can’t be raped by women – but it happens.

    Also – the Duke case is one that is propped up as the standard rather than the exception. It was a high profile case and it turned out to be a false report, but we owe it to all of the people that have been raped to assume that these cases are more than just regretted sex. In these cases, rape is far and away the norm.

    Whorn’s legal cadre could make the St Valentine’s Day Massacre look like the murder victim’s fault and that Al Capone was the injured party. It must be nice to be a Whorn and know the worst punishment that you will ever face is when the Slimy Used Car Salesman makes you get up in front of the team, promise it will never happen again, cry, say you’re sorry and promise to be a good little Whorn

    Rape is obviously nothing to joke about. But I have to admit, the ironic thought ran through my head when the article said they were involved in a “sexual assault” investigation… and Hicks had a groin injury all season.

    Sorry. I know that’s demented, but heck, at least I’m being honest.

    While I agree that sympathy is due to actual victims, I would never assume that just because someone cried rape or sexual assault that it was automatically true. That pesky innocent until proven guilty thing and all…..

  17. responsiblemen says: Jan 14, 2013 7:12 PM

    Absolutely! Innocent until proven guilty. I don’t know if a rape occured in this case. But the same needs to be extended to the girl. If people say she is lying then that is assuming she’s guilty of a crime ad well. Outside of all that, there is the court of public opinion. For example, OJ was found not guilty of murder, but I don’t know too manypeople that actually believe he’s innocent.
