Report: two Longhorns part of sexual assault investigation

Charlie Strong AP

In December of 2012, during the run-up to Texas’ appearance in the Alamo Bowl, quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks were indefinitely suspended by then-head coach Mack Brown in the midst of an investigation into an allegation of sexual assault. Neither player was ultimately charged.

A year and a half later, and under new head coach Charlie Strong, a seemingly similar situation has arisen.

According to Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman, “[t]wo… Texas football players were questioned by campus police as part of an investigation into an alleged sexual assault.” The football players accounted for two of the three questioned in connection to the on-campus incident.

The names of the players have yet to be made public; that follows a similar track to the McCoy/Hicks imbroglio.

Interestingly, Bohls made sure to note the following in his report:

Strong has firm beliefs about how his players should act around women. One of his stated five “core values” is to treat women with respect. He has said previously that violating one of his five core values was a sure way for a player to lose his scholarship.

Whether the loss of a scholarship added to potential charges for the two unnamed players is/would be in play remains to be seen.

    If they’re starters will we see an FSU? Let’s hope UT has better values

    Have a feeling, from what we’ve seen to date from Coach Strong, if charges are eventually pressed, he won’t be going easy on these idiots.

    I’m sure if his star player violates one of his 5 rules he would keep his scholarship. No doubt about it. This rule only applies for inclining 2 stars or 3rd and 4th stringers

    Based on what precedent? Charlie Strong isn’t Urban Meyer.

    deucez2, Great come back. UM has no morals. He cares only about wins.

    Let’s not jump the gun here. The questioned ‘students’ have NOT been confirmed as Longhorn players yet. Bohls does that often.

    How dare any of you question the morals of Urban Meyer? He held bible study with Aaron Hernandez…

    Not a fan of Texas but…if someone is accused of something they are obviously guilty? Because no one in the history of America has ever wrongfully accused some of a crime? Or straight out lied?

    According to most of these post, that’s the case, and that’s not fair.

    Give them the Death Penalty! Shut down the school! MAJOR COVER-UP!

    It’s amazing how holy finger pointers can be.

    I sure hope the alleged victim’s name isn’t released. She’ll be called a slut and whore by an entire fanbase. FSU fans will probably dig up some photos and pile on, too.

    Shoul have went to Free Sex University for that!!!

    Saints 97,

    What else would you call a female that was part of a group of women called #FSUcleatchasers who’s game was simply to see who could sleep with as many ball players as possible?

    Also, what would you call a girl who cries rape, but then when a rape kit is performed MULTIPLE DNA samples are found on her persons?

    It’s all in the report released by the State Attorneys office, look it up

  16. saints97 says: Jun 22, 2014 7:41 PM

    I’d call her a victim, McJon22.

    I was at a bachelor party years ago, with two entertainers. the bachelor was wearing a viking helmet. one girl took his helmet off and with the crowd support and a little lube the other girl took. well you know. Now those were some longhorns.

    Montrel Meander, Kendall Sanders.

    Both are serial tweeters.

    Neither of them have tweeted in the last 36 hours.

    Sumlin, er Chollie has a problem.
