Charlie Strong sued by former player.....

Postby alcoholica » Fri Dec 28, 2012 9:59 pm

Strong and the University of Louisville is being sued by a former player. Interesting side story for the Sugar Bowl.

A former Louisville player has sued the school and coach Charlie Strong and says he was coerced into covering up a beating in the locker room by a pair of teammates.


After sustaining an injury during a practice after the incident, the lawsuit says a doctor told Grant he should no longer play football but was promised by Strong that his scholarship would remain.

But Grant says in the suit that Strong canceled his scholarship in a Jan. 4 phone call and "hung up" on him when he protested.

The suit alleges that the university violated NCAA bylaws by canceling the scholarship without a hearing. The suit requests that a judge order the school to reinstate the scholarship. The suit also seeks compensatory damages and a jury trial.

Sounds easily manageable. It will be swept under the rug before the university gets a black eye... Give the kid his scholarship back and a couple grand for court fees or whatever.

Wonder what the REAL story is. Sounds like a possible bad apple that his teammates thought needed some "tunin' up".

Code Red Bird?

You wanna ask me about code reds? On the record, I tell you I discourage the practice in accordance with the Commanders directives; off the record, I tell you it`s an invaluable part of close infantry training. And if it happens to go on without my knowledge, so be it. I run my unit how I run my unit.

In times gone by, injuries used to just heal up tight and quiet.
But if their ain't a timely police report, how does this go ? :(

The suit alleges that the university violated NCAA bylaws by canceling the scholarship without a hearing. The suit requests that a judge order the school to reinstate the scholarship. The suit also seeks compensatory damages and a jury trial.

In July, a grand jury declined to indict former players Jacob and Isaac Geffrad on first-degree assault charges.

According to the criminal complaint, Grant suffered several injuries from the fight, including a fractured left eye socket that would later require two surgeries to save his sight and repair the bone structure.


No matter what happened, they should have held a hearing before cancelling the scholarship. Lack of due process could cost the school some money, especially with documented injuries.

This doesn't pass the smell test. Sounds like sour grapes and a last ditch attempt at getting something for nothing.

I think there could be more to this story. Which way it goes is anybody's guess. I'm not a huge fan of Strong to begin with. He was a Zook and Meyer guy who gets a lot of credit for Mattison's work in '06 and I think he underachieved on defense with the squad he had in '08, though not by a lot. I just don't buy into him as a "good" guy. Not saying he's a bad guy, but I'm not willing to just give him the benefit of the doubt. I want to see how this unfolds for Louisville.

Disagree! Charlie is one of my favorite coaches and my bet is the player got a deserved "blanket job" from his peers. Vietnam vets know all about them...see Full Metal Jacket!
