Civil suit hits Collins for $75K

Anonymous userJDB (Anonymous) says:kugrad2008 (Anonymous) says:Hey Taintedchamps,Do you read much?You said "I'm betting that during that 13 months someone in KU's athletic department had a direct conversation with Collins about the charges, what was at stake, and what he needed to do to make them go away by at least showing up to court."First, there were no charges filed, there were only allegations by a woman with no corroborating witnesses (he said she said), not even a police report. And the civil case was only filed a month ago. So exactly what conversation were you expecting?======================================One has to wonder whether *you* read the article which said:"In a statement issued Monday afternoon, KU head basketball coach Bill Self said KU officials were made aware of the allegation 13 months ago and described it as serious and not to be taken lightly."I would think they would have had some kind of conversation with him at the time. I imagine possible criminal charges were still on the table then.=========================================Tainedchamp said "THE charges", there were none.and since there were none, there wasn't anything to discuss as far as "making them go away".They were aware of the allegations, and they discussed them, but there were no charges filed and there was no civil case (at that time, and not even until today as far as they were concerned), there was nothing further for Self to do.

KUHoops, please read.....They were aware of the allegations 13 months ago....BUTThe civil case was just filed a month ago, they were unaware of the case.There are no legal responsibilities involved with an allegation.

Hey Taintedchamps,Do you read much? You said "I'm betting that during that 13 months someone in KU's athletic department had a direct conversation with Collins about the charges, what was at stake, and what he needed to do to make them go away by at least showing up to court."First, there were no charges filed, there were only allegations by a woman with no corroborating witnesses (he said she said), not even a police report. And the civil case was only filed a month ago. So exactly what conversation were you expecting?Second, exactly what actions were you expecting Self to take? Kick Collins off the team based on the fact that allegations were made that more than likely can not be proved at all?Maybe you are on to something I'm going to make a report that I was touched by Chase Daniel. I mean, it's not true, but the fact that I said it happened should be enough to get him kicked off the team, right?
