Yep, a similar situation occurred not so long ago at a University in Texas.

Don’t compare Baylor to LSU. Baylor had countless players accused, most convicted and at Baylor you had a situation where the coaches, the AD, the title 9 office, Baylor PD, the school president and the McLennan County DA were turning a blind eye.

Most of that article was lies. You can’t tell me the compliance Dept would hide this when they would get rid of almost everything. Come on really

If they got rid of the Honey Badger over some weed, I’m sure they would have kicked Guice to the curb over a rape allegation.

The fact that he touched on the conversation and told his side of the story was huge. You don't see people do that a lot.

If anyone needs an example of how CEO handles cases like this, look at Ed Ingram. Ed was charged by a DA and was suspended by the team pending the outcome. Once charges were dropped, Ed was back. Remember Davis Davis? He was arrested for domestic violence, suspended by CEO, then he got arrested again and CEO kicked him off. CEO isn’t gonna frick around. If he knew of this accusation, CEO would have handled it.

Now the Cancel culture is trying to bury Coach O. I knew this was eventually going to happen when he said nice things about #45. The media is truly the ENEMY of the PEOPLE . They the media ( the advocate included ) turn Americans against Americans.

I think “#45” is the king of “turning Americans against Americans.” This has nothing to do with a conspiracy against O!

The media is the people. Stop making it out to be some shadowy anonymous group. As long as humans are In charge of the world, shite will be fricked up. There’s nothing wrong with a system. It’s humans that frick everything up. Remove all the media and replace them with new people and eventually those people will be doing the same fricked up shite as the people before them.

Anyone accusing O of anything wrong hasn’t been paying attention to how he deals with shite like this.

You’re OP is saying he is a special person that deals with issues like this in away unlike every other coach in recorded history, not that he wasn’t in a position to deal with this incident.

This whole thing is rather bizarre. I can’t imagine LSU compliance not being all over this. This me too stuff is difficult to figure out sometimes. Why No police involvement? Why bring this up 4-5 years after the fact?

Why didn't the girls go to the cops instead of LSU?

And why wait 4 years to pile on after never going to the police or filing charges? It is BS.

Let's see. The girl was drunk to the point she has memory loss. She had gone out and just met Guice. They ended up back at her apartment and had sex. The next day she realizes what she did and knows other people saw it and know about it so she alleges rape to her boyfriend who is also on the football team. The player talks to Orgeron. The girl in question never files criminal charges against Guice at all. Very questionable. As soon as this girl tells anyone that she was severely drunk and does not have a clear memory of things she will lose all credibility except with the Twitter/Facebook crowd.

So the overly vigilant LSU compliance department just brushed this one off?

Hell the girl never filed charges in 4 years. Yeah, she took it seriously.
