    Just found this article on ESPiN.

    Ex-Louisville lineman alleges beating
    Very strong allegations.

    Non-story unless Strong was actually covering up something really heinous like trading gold pants for tattoos. Plus it's Louisville.

    Makes me wonder why Strong took away his scholarship. Feels like there's something Grant is not telling us.

    I think this whole business may be reminiscent of Tyson Walter and LeCharles Bentley.

    And make no mistake, Tyson Walter was not the actual aggrieved party there, regardless of how thoroughly his ass had been whupped by LeChuck.

    Agreed. There is a big missing link here. Both Jacob and Isaac Geffard were already criminally charged with assault on Patrick Grant. With that said, whats the need for a cover up?

    IMO, immediately following the tag-team on Grant the coaching staff wanted to cover it up publicly and handle it in-house. It was Strong's first HC gig, first year at Louisville, and had a 5-5 team. Probably thought the best thing he could do is not allow it to reach the public surface. Somewhere following that the story got out and for whatever reason all three players were stripped of their scholarships.

    Im thinking the missing link is what the fight was really over. Maybe something that was a violation in team or university rules to begin with?

    Football stadium was expanded recently, baseball stadium is in midsts of expansion, and they have their own little campus type environment for some of their olympic sports that's not too far from there. Some great facilities

    I may end up being wrong, but I'm not sure Strong is the answer for Texas. He's done well at Louisville, but that is with Bridgewater and against a horrible conference. That said, the Texas opening came at a bad time--I'm not sure there's a lot of great candidates out there. If I were a Texas fan, though, I probably would have wanted Mora from UCLA.

    I hope Strong says no.. because if he says yes
    Texas will be elite for the entire duration of his tenure there

    Agree.

    But he will irritate a lot of folks when he starts bringing in all those kids from Miami.
