The Nkemdiche brothers are striking back in court. The two Ole Miss players, Denzel Nkemdiche and Robert Nkemdiche, have filed a counter-suit seeking $2 million according to a report by The Clarion Ledger.

The lawsuit is a counter to a lawsuit originally filed by Matthew Baird. Baird accuses the Nkemdiche brothers of being a part of a group of individuals who attacked him outside of a fraternity house in mid-February 2013. The Nkemdiches say Baird’s statements are “untrue and false statements.”

“Nkemdiche would state and show that he suffered and sustained harm, injuries, damages, and/or losses as a result of the false and defamatory statements made by plaintiff/counter-defendant Matthew Baird and that, therefore, Nkemdiche is entitled to a judgement against (Baird) for compensatory damages in an amount to be determined by the jury,” the lawsuit filed by each brother reads in separate statements.

Ole Miss has suspended Denzel Nkemdiche for the season opener against Boise State. Robert Nkemdiche remains in good standing on the football program at this time.

    I’m betting no one sees a profit in this case except the lawyers.

    Got to look at the facts here, no one was convicted yet, and this allegation whether true or not WILL effect these players marketability at the next level.That being said if they are guilty they should receive the same punishment that any other citizen would, be it financial or time served.

    These guys are not students, but stupid jocks, who listened to a greedy lawyer. Maybe they need the money, in order to remain ‘big shots’ on campus.
    Will student athletes, in the two major sports, ever appear again, in real campus life ? How much longer do we have to continue to read about stupid jocks actions, both on an off campus ? We know that most of these jocks, are on campus only to play the game, and make it to the pros. Education is not their purpose for attending school.
    Point: What is the avg IQ of non-diploma NBA, and NFL players ? Less than 100 ?
