Only took them 4 years to kick him off the team for it.  Pretty impressive.  Oh wait, I misspelled pathetic.

It happened at my nephews fraternity though Gibbons was not in the frat. He told me about the accusation at Thanksgiving of that year. This does not suprise me in the least.

Bad news all the way around and Gibbons isn't the only player involved in the story, though the only one accused of sexual misconduct. Taylor Lewan was formally repermanded for harassing the girl after the fact by campus police.

We discussed it back in August

How can this be spun to get rid of Hoke and Brandon?  Time to clean house.

Just what the new incoming President of the University wanted to deal with, I'm sure.

When I see this stuff, we are no better than OSU or any other program.

I really don't understand the cover up, especially for a kicker.

What is this OIE group? Freak in university SS? their burden of proof is their own opinion on case "facts" that aren't enough to warrant police charges? (Real charges) I sure he's guilty of something along with that scumbag Lewan. But this whole "private investigation" doesn't seem right to me at all.

So there's enough evidence for them to believe "it was more likely to have happened, than not" but the real cops aren't sniffing out FELONY SEX CHARGES?

These are very serious accusations, as are any sex crimes IMO.

Something smells really bad............

Didn't happen under their watch.  Some other douchebag was leading the program then.
 
GO BLUE!

Since the university operates separate from the criminal justice system, one could argue that perhaps there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute, but the school felt like there was enough circumstantial evidence to wash their hands of this mess.

Unfortunate circumstances, but since he was not expelled until 12/19/13 I don't see how there's a team cover-up.

I'm all for presumed innocent until proven guilty and everybody deserves their day in court but you don't get booted just because.  Something happened which makes this guy a scumbag.  But in typical Michigan style, they call it "separated" from the University.  How freakin' stupid.

Accused and never charged...very similar to the Winston deal this year. Absolutely terrible it took 4 years to come to light...but every Mich fan knew of this (and Lewan's involvement) back when it happened. I was never a Gibbons fan and always thought RichRod should have kicked him off the team.

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

If he did do what is alleged, it makes his post-game comments about picturing a brunette all the more creepier.

I thought the same exact thing! I mean what if it was a direct shot at the girl, ya know? That would be sick and a true sociopathic behavior..........

Considering it was Hoke who said picture brunette girls because he (Hoke) thinks they are pretty I doubt very much it had anything to do with this.

This is probably very much like the Winston case and I'm sure privacy laws prevented Hoke from discussing any of it, hence the "family issues" statement. And there is no way the university tried to cover this up, they aren't going to try to protect a freshmen kicker who couldn't make a 30 yarded to save his life.
