    Possible Ohio State scandal with old wrestling coach

    Possible Ohio State scandal with old wrestling coach

    Think of what happened to the staff of people involved at PSU and MSU. Starting from the athletic director to all the coaches on the staff and to the campus security, I think they would be worried about their career and reputation based on the results of this investigation. Of course they're not going to say anything that incriminates themselves. At least Hellickson had the courage to complain a little bit. So you know all of the 7 guys that have made statements so well, that you can go online and attack their flawed character and as being misfits that Jordan didn't like or get a long with being the reason they're now coming at Jordan. Yes, on the "Medal of Honor", each school gets a female and male recipient each year based on athletic and academic success. Former winners include John Wooden, Drew Brees, Bob Griese (Purdue has the big names), and aforementioned Mke Disabato. This is one of the most prestigious awards in the Big 10. Yes Ohio State is a fine school, but you say getting a diploma there is like getting a diploma in a cracker box. My son and his wife graduated from the Ohio State University and a lot of his good friends did. They would really be very offended by that comment. My son got an accounting degree and a good job with PWC in Columbus. He worked his butt off. Keep in mind the average ACT for OSU is 29. I would like to see how many people on this board ever got a 29 or higher on the ACT. I wrestled at the college level in that era albeit at the NAIA level, but I don't remember that era as the "Creepy trainers" era. Maybe I was lucky and missed the creepy guys. Was there really a problem?

    Y2, you're right about Jordan being a lightning rod. Like or love his politics but he's gone extreme in his slash and burn brand with very little compromise, and he's the assigned the role attack dog going after his political opponents for any perceived irregularity. His trademark is no mercy and in his political investigations. Ironically his multiple accusations are based on govt employees not being responsible on their watch, and accusing govt employees for not monitoring the people around them and his best attack is claiming employees are immoral for being silent. And in his investigations, he recommends these employees to be prosecuted and terminated. Yes he put a target on himself, but now the shoe is on the other foot and he's the one being accused. He also backed himself in the corner, originally totally denying the claim. When Disabato comes at him, he can pawn it off as Disabato wanting some class action compensation, but when 6 other wrestlers step up and the head coach Hellickson admitting there was an issue that's a whole other ball game. When that many people step up, the character attack strategy doesn't work so well. Also, he then changes story using the old "Donald Trump Locker Room talk strategy". Yes, the ironic thing was his locker was next to Strauss's, and he really didn't know what was going on. He really looses his credibility when he starts blaming the timing of he accusations based his Rosenstein attacks last week. Yes, the investigation has been going on since April at OSU and involves all the men's sports teams and at OSU and the investigation is not just about him. And trying to link the law firm to Hillary is even a joke. Y2, on your point about wrestlers not fitting into the mold of being weak (mentally or physically), it does seem odd to go after wrestlers. But Dr Strauss was accused of sexual deviance with members of all the sports at OSU including 15 athletes making claims. The investigation didn't start in wrestling. I would say all scholar athletes at the OSU D1 level would be mentally and physically tough, not weak. Albeit Football, tennis, baseball, swimming, gymnastics, basketball, track, etc all these guys are strong and mentally focused on their discipline. The Dr probably had a method on how far he could go with molesting student athletes.

    https://www.whio.com/news/local/report-former-osu-wrestlers-say-jordan-aware-team-doctor-alleged-sex-abuse/9UqmRCllGOn0JeCH3mXecL/ Looks like 5 OSU wrestlers are now coming out saying that Jordan knew about the abuse. Also, Russ Helickson (Head coach) even commented in one of DiSabato's videos that he complained to the administration that the Dr was being too handsy. So Helickson knew, 5 wrestlers knew and Jordan didn't know anything. (Shawn Dailey and UFC champ Mark Coleman) And 14 former OSU student athletes also have claimed abuse. You can go after these guys backgrounds. But DiSabato did win the Big Ten "Medal of Honor" and his he had four brothers wrestle for OSU. Does it mean anything that he's got in some lawsuits. He in the apparel business, there's always licensing disputes when working with colleges and even pro sports like MMA. So is that the strategy to attack the background of these whistle blowers. Yes, you could say they potentially could be getting some settlement money in a class action suit. But do you think they would go to the point of making this up. You could say the same thing about Jordan, with his political career and aspirations. Yes maybe he is a nice guy, but so was Paterno. He definitely has the motive to lie to cover up his involvement to CYA. Look what happened to the staff at PSU and MSU, and that's scaring the crap out of him. You can say he's nice and honest, but political power changes people. Also, doesn't look like he has the back of his former wrestlers at OSU.

    ESPN Article says there's 14 accusations against Dr Strauss. So there's more than just smoke. With this hitting the public, I bet more people will make allegations. The big difference with this and Michigan State is that this was 20 years ago and a lot of water went under the bridge and that Dr Strauss committed suicide in 2005. http://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/23948342/sex-abuse-inquiry-former-ohio-state-doctor-now-includes-high-school-students

    It is interesting, you have Disabato who has a litigious past including a licensee agreement that went bad with OSU. You got Yetts with a felonious criminal fraud history. I wonder if the third guy will come out. The MSU thing started small and then everybody came out of the woodwork. Also add, Jordan has thrown a lot of stones in his political career, which makes him a target and this could hurt Jordan politically. Ill be curious if more people come out. Curious to see if some Skeletons come out of Dr Strauss' closet. If people dig up a history on him, it could escalate this.
  7. See the article on congressman Jim Jordan, (former OSU) wrestling coach. Makes you wonder what's up with the Big 10 with Penn State, MSU and then this at OSU. This one probably wont be that big but if makes you scratch your head. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/powerful-gop-rep-jim-jordan-accused-turning-blind-eye-sexual-n888386

    Weird and sad story about former IU wrestler

    He should go kick something that can kick back. I hope he didn't kill the swan.
  9. I was reading the news and saw this very unusual story. Something's not right with this guy. Maybe too many concussions back in the day. See the link to article. This was in USA today, so I think a real story. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/2018/05/03/ex-indiana-wrestler-rocco-mantella-arrested-kicking-swans-head/576832002/

    I got to say this system is a lot more fairer than the IHSAA the previous team state system. What about the old system when you had two top teams in the same regional, then a top team in the state doesn't make it to the dual meet. For example, you had Brownsburg and Avon in the same regional this year. Since Brownsburg won the regional, Avon would have been out? You have top teams At least this system puts in the best teams into the competition and it also puts the competition at a time that its not competing against the individual state tournament at the same time. Now were arguing about whose 11th and 12th and most likely these last two team wont be much of a factor in the championship. I don't care how you slice it, there's always going to be a last guy out.
