Urban Meyer enjoyed a miracle run in his first season at Ohio State, leading the Buckeyes to a perfect 12-0 record in 2012.
However, Meyer now has a real problem on his hands. According to ABC 6/ FOX 28, an as-yet-unidentified woman has come forward saying three members of Meyer’s football team raped her in one night back in October.
Here’s the story, courtesy of ABC 6/FOX 28:
Three OSU freshman football players are named in a search warrant filed by OSU police after a female student claimed she was raped, and the three were involved.
ABC 6/ FOX 28 is not naming the players because no charges have been filed yet.
The alleged victim reported the incident to police In November.
She says It happened after a party in October.
She tells police she and two friends met three football players and she went back to their room with one of them.
She said they were “fooling around” in his bed when a second player started touching her.
She said she didn’t want to do that so she went into the bathroom.
There she told police, the second player forced her to have oral sex.
In the search warrant, police say the first player told them said the girl came back to his room with him, and he got into his bed.
He said she jumped on top of him and started kissing him.
After a while, he decided didn’t want to do that because he had a girlfriend back home.
No one from OSU would talk today saying its an ongoing investigation ABC 6 / FOX 28 has learned that one, of the three players, left the team last week.
No one from the university will confirm that it’s a result of this incident.
Obviously, should these allegations prove true, swift and unequivocal action will be taken on the part of Meyer, and the other two players will be off the team.
