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."

    I wouldn't put too much credence in anything that Dunyasha Yetts attributed to Hellickson - unless it was confirmed by Russ or a recording, etc.  (Note: Not saying you are necessarily taking Yetts at his word as you did say "if true.")

    Yes, Hellickson described the environment on video - and USA Today also reported that he said the following:
     
    Hellickson said he was aware Dr. Richard Strauss made the athletes "uncomfortable" and he brought it up with the doctor directly. Hellickson has said that at the time, neither he nor Jordan had any idea that Strauss was abusing students and “if we’d have known it we’d have said something.” Jordan has denied allegations that he knew of claims of sexual abuse.
     
    In a phone interview with USA TODAY Monday, Hellickson said he told Strauss that some of the athletes were "uncomfortable" with him showering with them and that the doctor responded that Hellickson also showered with the athletes. â€œI said, 'Not for an hour, Doc,'” Hellickson said.
     
    And the Chicago Tribune reported that DiSabato stated the following:
     
    DiSabato said he never spoke up about Strauss while he was at the university because he didn't consider it abuse and because he didn't want to jeopardize his wrestling career.  He said Strauss' behavior was an open secret among wrestlers, who would snicker when a new teammate headed into his first exam with Strauss.
     
    The above reports agree that neither Hellickson, Jordan, nor DiSabto viewed Strauss's actions at the time as "abuse."  Apparently, however, DiSabato finally realized he'd been abused - but not until  immediately after the $500 million MSU settlement made the news. Merely a coincidence?  Not IMO.

    None of the Dernlans ever coached or wrestled for Ohio State.   Plus, when your dad is a Pastor....

    edit -  I can't remember for sure if one of the Dernlan brothers were ever on staff at tOSU, for a short stint while Jim Jordan was there.     Even so, that would have been after any of the DiSabato's were at tOSU.  
     
    The fact Mike D even mentioned JJ's real business in this discussion, makes the entire story stink.

    You can either like or dislike the Jordan's, but they've always stood for what they valued.    The DiSabato's are a large family.   You have good sides, and a questionable side.
    The dislike and jealousy of the Jordan's, goes back before Mike D.  Possibly failed attempts at tOSU coaching positions, failed businesses and overall not as much success on the mat could all be answers to the question.....?  
     
    Why haven't we heard from the other A.D boys who wrestled at tOSU back then?    Only the one with all the legal trouble...?

    I imagine it all went down something like this:  
     
    Setting:  A couple of old tOSU wrestlers are sitting at a bar knocking down some cold ones and watching Sports Center.  The newscast reports that MSU will be paying out $500 million to victims of Nassar's abuse.
     
    Wrestler 1:  "Wow!  That's a lot of green.  Those gals are going to be set for life now."
     
    Wrestler 2: "Yep, they sure are.  Say, you know what...that Nassar guy kinda reminds me of 'ole Doc Strauss."
     
    Wrestler 1:  "Oh yeah, I remember how we used to laugh about the way he'd ogle us in the shower and try to feel our nuts during physicals.  Of course, back then we all just thought of him as a harmless old homo.  Besides, he knew we'd knock hell out of him if he tried anything like Nassar did to those girls."
     
    Wrestler 2:  "True enough, but - the more I think about it - maybe we can piggy-back on this Nassar deal and get a payday too.  Tell you what:  I'll check on the statute of limitations.  You read up on the symptoms that victims of sexual abuse exhibit.  Then, we'll meet back here in the bar next week and shoot the $hit some more."
     
    Wrestler 1:  "Sounds good.  Hell, I'm beginning to think we might be able to pull this off.  With a little practice, we should be able to generate some crocodile tears that'd look just like the real tears of those little gymnasts."
     
    Stay tuned...

    DeSabato probably joked about Strauss back in the day, but is looking for a payoff today. The guy is a walking, talking lawsuit. The definition of someone you hope to never cross paths with.

    Jordan is in it because DiSabato, Yetts and Coleman are  broke and needed their "BFF" Jordan ,to lie for them to gain substance to their get rich quick scheme.  
     
    News media are in it because they do not support  Jordan for picking on their corrupt deep state hero(s)and will make up anything to bring him and Trump down.
     
    Radical Liberals are in it because Jordan told their hero  (and corrupt reporter) a lie and it brings him down to the level of all their role models.

    The Wall Street Journal today has a short piece that wonders why Jordan would have encouraged his relatives to attend tOSU if he thought it was a den of "abuse".  
     
    The more interesting part of the article notes that the law firm (Perkins Cole) hired by tOSU to investigate the allegations against the doctor is the same law firm that facilitated the payment from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign to the group that assembled the discredited "Trump" dossier that was used in seeking the improper surveillance warrants.

    Unlikely that that particular firm is going to do anything other than attempt to inflct some primary or collateral damage on Jordan.

    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 consider him the greatest American wrestler ever upon graduating college. Everyone can have their own opinion on the semantics, whether Olympic and world golds trump the almighty NCAA or whether they don't. Or whether losing by fall in the NCAA finals as a freshman carries more weight than those gold medals.
