Here is a good blog by some Ave Maria alum that are closely following the controversy surrounding the possibility of moving the school from Michigan to Florida: http://whoseamsol.blogspot.com/

Yeah this seems like it really looks bad for the accuser. 46 players sticking together is one thing. But if the 2nd stripper didn't leave that night with any kind inkling that a rape had taken place -- based either on the behavior of the players or the behavior of the accuser on the way home -- that it really seems unlikely.

I didn't realize that the referenced story was an opinion piece and not news story so the questions about conservative bias are indeed valid.
And here is a link to the article:

From what I gathered from the article, the ABA's new policy sounded pretty out of line, at least the part you mentioned about schools having to violate the law in order to comply. But then the WSJ tends to be conservative, they may have been exaggerating and/or gotten their facts wrong or misunderstood the ABA's stance or the law. It would not be the first time.
Certainly WSJ's editorial page is very conservative but their regular reporting is not.
Is there any kind of link to the story (or at least some more info on what the story says)?

Even though I am a pretty typical white conservative Republican, I understand your point about the trial being an emblem of a bigger issue. What confuses me and I know many other white people, and perhaps you can explain this for me, is why it is the Black community was so eager to defend someone who seemed to have little to do with them? He was a man surrounded by white friends, living in a white neighborhood who dated and married white women. To a lesser extent I know the same phenomena baffled many white people during the Michael Jackson trial.
(PS My understanding is non-blacks are permitted to post in this section as long as they are being respectful. If I've misunderstood and it's best for me not to post here accept my apologies.)

P-man, did you get your TexWes e-mail yet?
Nope. I keep checking my email which is really kind of silly since I already know i got in.
I might have made one too many (1) references to my being Jewish in my application for their liking.
If it makes you feel any better (not that you need consolation; congrats on Kent) my whole PS was on what it's been like to work for the Catholic Church for the last five years. Then again my numbers aren't near as good as yours.
