Crap! Report: UT's Case McCoy, Jordan Hicks sent home amid sex assault inquiry

UPDATED (2:50) — Charges have not been filed and Brown has yet to release the names of the players that were sent home, but multiple reports are claiming the players sent home were junior QB Case McCoy and junior LB Jordan Hicks.

UPDATED (2:10) – The two suspects are described as a 6-2, 235-pound, 20-year-old black man and a 6-0, 180-pound, 21-year-old white man, according to the San Antonio Police report.

UPDATED (12:40) – The two unnamed players have been sent home from the Alamo Bowl, according to Texas coach Mack Brown.

In a previously scheduled press conference Friday morning, Brown declined comment on the situation, only saying the two players broke team rules and were sent home.

“When you have an issue, you deal with it and move forward,” Brown said.

ORIGINAL POST – Two Texas Longhorn football players are accused of sexual assault, according to a report by KENS 5 in San Antonio.

The accusation comes just one day before the Longhorns take on the Oregon State Beavers in the Alamo Bowl, which is held in San Antonio.

2. the link says now... it is the two mentioned

SAN ANTONIO – Texas backup quarterback Case McCoy and injured linebacker Jordan Hicks were suspended and sent home a day before Saturday’s Valero Alamo Bowl against Oregon State.

The suspensions of the two juniors came a few hours after a report by San Antonio TV station KENS 5 that two Texas players were at the center of a sexual assault investigation involving a 21-year-old woman at a downtown San Antonio hotel early Friday morning. The names of the players were redacted in the police report supplied to the media. A spokeswoman for the San Antonio police department said late Friday afternoon that the investigation was on-going and no arrests had been made.

Sources with knowledge of the decision confirmed that McCoy and Hicks were the two suspended players. One source indicated that one of the team rules broken involved a curfew violation.

4. Murky stuff...

...and it's happening a lot. The woman always gets ostracized and the players' reps go into the toilet even if they continue to play. It's hard to find justice when the blame-the-victim mentality is so widespread that many cases don't make it to court.

I followed the Michael Dixon situation at Missouri, including the real-time Twitter blow-ups. What made it so infuriating was the report that the first alleged victim said she was warned by another player to keep her mouth shut. The woman in the Notre Dame scenario also believed she was in a David vs. Goliath situation pitting her against the ND establishment.

5. One thing I don't get....

Texas put up the players in a downtown San Antonio hotel for about five nights. The UT campus is only about an hour's drive from the Alamodome.

I bet this won't happen again.

6. It will always happen

When you are in a bowl game, you always treat it like a road game.
