    Better believe he was a scapegoat.

    Did he file the lawsuit or did Daddy do it on his behalf?

    His lawyer's last name is Strokoff.

    He was hardly blameless, but he was also scapegoated.

    There will be hundreds of millions of dollars paid out in upcoming lawsuits and settlements; he might as well get some.

    Especially since he'll never coach again.

    I hope he wins. Lord knows he's young and will hardly be able to get a job in coaching.

    I wouldn't say that; he's young enough. Ten or 15 years from now, he could resurface somewhere.

    He didn't handle the situation correctly, but the university totally threw him under the bus.
  10. curious why this is being called in reports a whistleblower lawsuit? it doesn't look like one to me (disclosure: non-attorney).

    What on earth did he expect? To be labeled a hero and have them errect a statue of him outside the stadium? C'mon, can't be that naive, can he?

    He reported a crime to a university official. He's claiming he got defamed by the president of said university because he reported that crime. That makes this a whistleblower lawsuit.
