Illegal Touching: Buckeye Recruit Arrested

Buckeye recruit Chris Carter was arrested when a girl filed a complaint against him for fondling her while he pretended to measure her for a ROTC uniform.

More Buckeye hijinks. First the Maurice Clarett scandal, then tattoogate, now this. Carter is a 6-4, 325 pound offensive lineman, so he truly was a big man on campus. He was expected to sign with Ohio State, so you know he didn't have to resort to such tactics to get a piece of chicken if you know what I mean.

A 15 year old girl told police that Carter came to one of her classes and told her to come with him to measure her for an ROTC uniform. They proceeed to a room behind the schools auditorium. He then went into action, alledgedly.

“Once inside the room, (Carter) asked the victim to take off her sweat shirt and shirt so he could take her measurements,” the police report said. “He cut off the lights … and stated `I need you to take your bra off.’ The arrested male than put his arms under her arms from behind and attempted to pull her bra up.”

The police are investigating whether he fondled at least eight other girls. Jim Tressel was giving this kid a scholarship? We all know Tressel recruits questionable players, but that usually surfaces when they get there, not before arrival.

“He is not guilty and we will proceed with it. I know that he’s innocent. He’s a nice kid.” said Harvey Bruner, Carter's attorney.

According to Bruner the scholarship is being held for Carter. Considering the clouds swirling around the Buckeyes, Tressel needs to pull the offer until further notice. If he's guilty, he's gotta go. I know every kid's not a saint but if he has problems now, he'll have them later.

O.J. Denied An Appeal

The Supreme Court justices that previously denied O.J. Simpson an appeal of his conviction hit him with two strong words. Rehearing denied.

O.J. still seems to think he's not guilty of any wrongdoing. You got caught trying to jack your own stuff, that;s kind of pathetic. Of course he doesn't have the money to obtain a high powered legal team like the famous murder trial in which he was acquitted. Simpson has to be feeling pretty low knowing that his co-defendant, Clarence Stewart had his conviction overturned. O.J. is convicted of kidnapping and armed robbery and other charges on two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas. Simpson ended up getting 9 to 33 years in prison.

I can't say I feel sorry for him, knowing he escaped a murder conviction and got hit with a lesser charge. Everyone knows he was guilty the first time and it finally caught up with him. I hope he serves all 33 years, even though he probably won't.

I'm not playing the race card but this is fact. The only reason us black people were happy when he got off the first time was because a black man had finally beat the system. Other than that we really didn't give a damn about O.J.

Favorite Moments From Super Bowls Past

More of my favorite moments of Super Bowls past.

Super Bowl XVIII-  Los Angeles Raiders vs. Washington Redskins. This is another that had more than one moment in it. The Raiders set the tone from the start and didn't letup.

The blocked punt by Derrick Jensen and Marcus Allen's touchdown run.

Jack Squirek's pick six is one of my all time favorites, especiallly since I pulled it off against my friend in Madden.

Super Bowl XXIII- San Francisco 49ers vs. Cincinnati Bengals. This game was enterntaining just like their first meeting in Super Bowl XVI. It featured the gruesome Tim Krumrie injury and a great Joe Montana comeback.
