    Alleged Ohio State Disabato video

    The star witness - maybe Helickson had good reason to ask Yetts to tell the truth. I mean reading the articles about him, he sounds like a honest guy - https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/stories/2002/01/21/story4.html > "Yetts is also the target of a drug trafficking investigation in Columbus, in addition to the SEC matter, two civil lawsuits filed in Franklin County against Yetts and his own voluntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. On July 30, Yetts was arrested on a felony charge of possessing 21 pounds of marijuana at a warehouse at 5101 Trabue Road in Columbus. ." > "Yetts also had a legal dispute with former OSU fullback Nicky Sualua, who in 1997 agreed to have Yetts represent him in negotiations with the Dallas Cowboys and granted Yetts' request for power of attorney, according to a lawsuit Sualua filed in 1998 against Yetts. Sualua's signing bonus and all biweekly payments from the Cowboys were made directly to Yetts until the fall of 1997, according to the lawsuit. Yetts used his power of attorney to buy a house in Dublin in Sualua's name, without the football player's permission, according to the suit." > "After depositing Winfield's $700,000 in a bank account of World Wide Financial, the SEC claims Yetts used about $67,500 for personal and business expenses, including payments to prior investors, country club dues, attorney's fees, credit card bills, outstanding student loans and insurance premiums."

    Exactly, the two star witnesses are a known felon who cheated out his best friends, and a future felon

    That is not telling them to recant; there are other texts in that conversation not being shown, I wonder why. I have no problem with this statement from Russ "“If you think the story got told wrong about Jim, you could probably write a statement for release that tells your story and corrects what you feel bad about. I can put you in contact with someone who would release it.” He is asking them to tell the truth.

    He addressed perceived creepiness; ask your wife, being creepy is not abuse.

    Ohio State scandal

    Did the wife file charges? It not, than why does she want to take others down for something she refused to do?

    Ding! Ding! We have a winner. DiSabato has been walking a fine line of the victim. Inferring abuse, but then quickly saying, in a dismissive homophobic manner, things like "but there was no sex or b.j....' To much bad history with OSU to make him credible, like the lawsuits, apparel sales issues of licensing his employers products in the name of his own side company, and a generally aggressive litigious business operation style. Have no issue with what others might claim.
  7. https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/05/us/ohio-state-sexual-abuse-allegations-video/index.html How did this tidbit get by us about the perpetrated video NBC and CNN have. So now it's not like he made a video for his own story but, it was part of his company... "The video was produced in June by former OSU wrester Mike DiSabato's company Combat Athlete Coalition, he told CNN. The company represents the collective interests of former college athletes in matters of compensation and safety issues." Also interesting how the media is now scrubbing some of Disabato's and Yett's statements that clearly indicate they both said that they never knew of themselves, told, or reported to Jordan of any "alleged sexual abuse". Also scrubbed, but on video is where Disabato has also claimed that while his nutsack may have been fondled for some time, he was quick to brush off and say "but...there was no sexual activities...". If that it the case then, still trying to figure Disabato's motive, if he was not abused. $$$$

    New Transfer Rule Impact

    With a Penn State class that includes Davis, Michael Beard, Roman Bravo-Young, Aaron Brooks, Joe Lee, Seth Nevills, Gavin Teasdale and Brody Teske and their class last year, that is a lot of bodies. Guys want to be "the man" either with scholarship money, or on the mat without regard to money. With the ease of transfer rules, we could see a go for broke attitude where teams like PSU are able to load up with guys for less money, train a year or two (including a red-shirt year) in a high quality Olympic-caliber training environment and RTC, and then bolt hoping for payday as slates open up at other schools, becoming mercenaries? I think we will see a noticable rise in the grey-shirting / year off phenomena.

    This is as funny as it gets; too bad the youngins don't know who Charles Manson is.

    Eli Stickley (Wisconsin)

    What a great live he lived: Eli and Moriah were homeschooled by their mom and graduated from Graham High School in 2015. Growing up, Eli started wrestling in third grade and later enjoyed serving as a wrestling camp counselor, several years of 4-H, cross-fit, hunting and fishing - especially going on the cousin guys' trips to Canada, that he referred to as the "Promised Land". Eli was a stand-out member of the Graham wrestling team where he was team captain his junior and senior years, ended his high school career a four-time state placer, an Iron Man champion in 2012, and a state wrestling champion in 2014. His most recent years were spent at the University of Wisconsin majoring in Life Science Communications with a pre-chiropractic route and a proud member of the Badger Wrestling team. Eli was a NCAA qualifier, Big Ten placer, an Academic All-American wrestler and displayed the true characteristics of a student athlete. He was heavily involved in Athletes in Action where he dedicated his time as both a student and a leader. After completing chiropractor school Eli planned on opening his own practice, Chiro-Fit, in Colorado incorporating the Four C's - chiropractic, cross-fit, coffee, and CHRIST.

    I thought you were going to say he just became age eligible for Social Security
  13. I’m sure the Olympic Gold medal and 2 World Championships make up for it, because he did it while he was in college.

    If true, hope he gets well soon. and if needed, I unselfishly offer up my time to personally console Mom Diakomihalis through this tumultuous time and get her back on the road to recovery. I vow to be her rock. Sincerely, Sergeant Hulka's Big Toe,
