Don’t expect the Black Panthers to come to town and threaten the accused.
Don’t expect any high profile visits.
Don’t expect 88 liberal professors to sign a letter in protest.
And… certainly don’t expect the U of M Chancellor to cancel the football season!
Another sad story from campus…

MINNEAPOLIS — Three University of Minnesota football players were in police custody Friday, undergoing questioning after allegations of criminal sexual conduct, the university said in a statement.
Coach Tim Brewster immediately suspended the players until the investigation is complete. The allegations come on the eve of the team’s spring intrasquad game.
The players were identified by the university as Alex Daniels, listed as a 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive end who came to the Gophers as a highly touted linebacker from Columbus, Ohio; Keith Massey, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound cornerback from Columbus; and E.J. Jones, a 5-foot-9, 185-pound running back from Edwardsville, Ill.
Daniels and Massey are 20 years old. Jones is 19. A university spokesman said all three are sophomores, but Daniels is listed on the roster as a junior. It appeared they had not been charged with any crime as of Friday night, but they remained in police custody.
According to a police report, an 18-year-old woman was raped sometime between late Tuesday and Wednesday morning. The victim, whose name is not being released, was examined at a local hospital.
