    Is there any doubt that there will be more to this story

    ... and OSU loses recruit due to this.


    Kid, sounds like, was looking for a reason to back out anyway. And - is it just me? - his pop sounds like an idiot.
  5. Not just you, SPORTSbyBROOKS has been pretty vocal about the father potentially opening himself up to a defamation lawsuit with his comments.

    I've always wondered about people that take the time to incessantly tweet athletes. The never-ending stream of "can a big fan get a RT?" tweets always makes me laugh / feel bad for a lot of people.

    There's nothing libelous in the linked ESPN story. He calls the guy a perv and a creep and the guy is a registered sex offender.
  8. I agree with you. Brooks is trying to make a case the father is libeling OSU by hinting there's a more sinister underlying problem at Ohio State, and if his comments affect other recruits' decisions, OSU could seek damages. Seems like a pretty big stretch to me, but I'm no lawyer.

    I think one of the very last things in the world Ohio State wants to do is go into court and have to prove that its football program is clean.

    That behavior is only weird if the University isn't paying you to do it.

    Nice of them to warn their players about this guy.

    Do they warn the rest of the student body when they recruit a player who has faced criminal charges to represent the University, and live on campus, with the rest of the students? Or when one of their players is arrested?

    Have they let their students know about the accusations made against Cris Carter?
