Miami Suspends Jeff Brown For Rape Charge

The University of Miami indefinitely suspended redshirt freshman defensive tackle Jeffrey Brown for raping a sleeping woman, according to reports:

As the victim was sleeping, [Brown] pulled off the victim's blanket and got on top of her," the arredste report stated. "He then removed the victim's underwear."

The woman told Brown to stop, but he continued and had sex with her against her will, she told police.

When approached by police, Brown denied the allegations, but when presented with evidence, he changed his story and admitted to having sex with the woman, police said.

Brown also allegedly sent several text messages to his roommate while being interviewed by police. He asked the unnamed roommate to "dispose of his underwear," the report stated.

Police later retrieved Brown's underwear and took them into evidence.

Please do not take analysis of the situation as crass.  We are certainly sensitive to the situation and our sympathies are with the alleged victim.

This is the second serious charge against a Miami Hurricane player under new coach Al Golden.  In March, linebacker Ramon Buchannan for assaulting a police officer.  This behavior is in stark contrast to that of the team under fired coach Randy Shannon, who ran a clean but unsuccessful program.

Miami, which lacks quality depth at the defensive tackle position, could have used Brown this year.  While he was not going to start, he would have been the fourth or fifth defensive tackle, and that would certainly mean significant playing time.  

Miami's new game plan at defensive tackle is two-fold:

  1. Have excellent injury luck
  2. Sign two major scrubs projects to come in late.  You had to know Miami felt really bad about its defensive tackle situation to sign two roulette chips in those two.

More to come on this story and others as things are getting bad in Miami a full year before the Canes were expected to field the worst non-probation team since the 1970's (2012).
