Chris Steele's dad issues statement - re: Florida CB Transfer
quote:

Chris Steele’s father, Troy Steele, has issued a comment that seems to confirm the Gator Sports report:

“1st and last tweet about this situation. Your last name as a man is with you forever and even transcends death, when that name is even remotely associated with something so appalling, you have to take a stand,”.

re: Chris Steele's dad issues statement - re: Florida CB Transfer
quote:

Steele made the decision to leave Florida after requests to change dorm rooms, to separate himself from quarterback Jalon Jones, were not granted. Jones was accused of sexual battery by two women in April in separate incidents that allegedly took place in his apartment on April 6, according to University of Florida Police Department reports.

Steele's name was used in the police reports, since the two were roommates on campus.

A source told ESPN.com that Steele made Florida staff members aware of his complaints about Jones, dating to January, and that multiple complaints were made. What the specific complaints referenced is unknown, but Steele was requesting to be relocated from the dorm.

The Florida staff did not immediately move Steele, and didn't plan to move him until the summer, and when Steele's name was associated with the police reports from Jones' accusation, it exacerbated the concerns Steele had, according to a source.


Goddamn, if true, that has to be very worrisome for UF fans. That's fricking insane.

Dan is used to a cooperative police force and a whipped media who doesn’t question him from his time in Starkville. 5 stars have options though.

The issue is Steele pretty much telling the UF staff months prior to it happening that his roomy is insane and he wants to be moved. The kid literally foreshadowed bad things and gave warning, nothing was done, roomy rapes, kids name is included in police reports.

I'd leave as well and Sue the frick out of the athletic department.

This is why Mullen hasn't talked to the press


It is worth noting that we have only heard Steele’s side of this story as "Florida is unable to comment on his situation due to student privacy laws". It had previously been reported that Steele was homesick shortly after enrolling at UF for being far away from his native Southern California. That said, Mullen did reportedly apologize, and he would not have apologized for nothing.

Still a couple of dozen rapes away from making that claim. Also, UF needs to throw a few of the victims out of school because they got raped.

And nothing will make a guy homesick quicker than a psycho roommate

And have a "Come to Jesus" meeting with the accused rapo. Might have saved some huge problems for two young women and their families.

Back in the day, a HC would send a quartet of Senior linemen to "discuss" bad behavior with diva Freshmen. Very effective.

Yeah. But Dan knows better. Unlike most college towns, Gainesville cops seem to have a bounty on Gator ballplayers.
