Other than vick, I don't think the allegations are a huge deal

they aren't ideal obviously, and I don't think TB would let it get to this point (bragg has issues similar to what nichols was alleged to have), but I think it is mostly just some self entitled players getting a little out of hand (a lot of it was on a night all the coaches went to a chiefs game). Self recruits players with a bit of an edge and definitely has a boys will be boys attitude. It is pretty clear that they aren't worried about minor stuff like weed but overall they usually stay out of serious trouble. I do think the university and lawrence cops/DA are protective of the program though.

Vick IMO was a bigger deal. Even if the girl at issue was "crazy" as most local fans claim, it is hard to justify him hitting and kicking her in the face -- as the university concluded he likely did -- and the later vandalism of her car was significant. I can't root for him when he is in.

I am assuming the rape investigation isn't really tied to any player.
