Tex Hollywood - August 24, 2022
There's an old joke we used to have back in High School about the jocks, which was basically that they were homoerotic weirdos who showered together, but the first to call other dudes who weren't athletic the forbidden "F-Word", to which ALL the nerds would be like "but you shower with each other", to which they would say "shut up F-Word or we'll teach you".
I'm not hating on the jocks out there, but when I saw this story, with years of hazing ritual horror stories out there since I've been in high school, many of which involve sodomy with broom handles, equipment, other things, it is sort of a jock right of passage!
That doesn't mean it's right, I'm actually shocked that in the current climate this still happens, but the story is that a punter for the Jacksonville State University team faces 3 arrest warrants for assault.
The allegations are that he physically abused a teammate while they were at Troy University.
The abuse ranged from verbal harassment, which include sexual statements and homophobic slurs, to molestation and violence, ultimately culminating with the forced sodomy with a pool cue.
The punter was released on signature bond after turning himself in on Monday, and he has a court date set for Oct. 5.
