Ben claims the encounter in the bathroom was consensual and the woman does not, just like Hicks is now claiming his encounter was consensual when the woman does not. You want to complain about innocent until proven guilty, Ben was never proven guilty in either case. Local fans just choose to believe the woman in his case (as do I).
[View Full Quote]The McCoy/Hicks case is different in that people are choosing to believe in the innocence of McCoy/Hicks without them even having to defend themselves. If you want to have a double standard for local kids that is fine, but own up to it. In both situations no one has been proven guilty yet Ben is a rapist and McCoy/Hicks are dealing with an "attention you know what."
knowing what I know about the party atmosphere and lack of consequences in Austin for so long, I am not going to jump on the side of the Horns players without any facts. Then again, I am also not going to throw the book at them without any facts either.....
I did say that Case is an embarrassment to his bro and I stand by that. He put himself in a bad situation that could have absolutely been avoided. He also has done very little on the field to honor the name on the back of his jersey.
