From Academic All-Big 10...to Felon

If you're a regular here at the MZone, you know we're big fans of EDSBS. We especially like their Fulmer Cup competition which tallies up the misdeeds and various scandals at college football programs across America. Our favorite part of the Fulmer Cup? When we can nominate our intra-state rivals in East Lansing.

Turns out Spartan DB Cole Corey's football days are over...unless they're of The Longest Yard variety. Corey, who earned Academic All-Big 10 honors as a freshman, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance. We won't go into details here of the 12 other serious charges that were dropped with his guilty plea but, suffice to say, the 2-10 year sentence he agreed to says a lot.

It's interesting that Sparty, on their official athletic site, doesn't show this guy on their 2005 roster. But thanks to the miracle that is Google Cache, they clearly had him on there at one time.

Must be because he is from Detroit. If he's not then it must be because he is from Michigan. Go Buckeyes

Hey Anon - you're obviously still hurting from the beatdown the Cavs took in game 7. Funny to hear a Buckeyes fan talk smack about players committing crime. How's Maurice Clarett doing these days? Or should I ask how much time is Maurice Clarett doing these days?

I agree that it's fun to beat on Sparty, and most everyone else for that matter, but I think they get a pass on this one.

I'm not sure, but I think that these charges stem from a huge scandal at his high school. In fact, I believe the DFP recently did an investigative piece on it.

If the rumors and the allegations are true, there was something quite amiss in that high school, and it involved students, teachers, coaches and administrators.

He's in a support group with Kelly Baraka and Larry Harrison.

It is a sad situation when a young man can be sent to prison on what ended up being just a drug possession charge. He did not plea to agree to a 2 to 10 year prison sentence, the judge blindsided him at the sentencing. He was expecting a drug program and probation. Lenawee County is known for slamming the hammer down on young people and with the cameras rolling this judge did his grandstanding at a young man's expense. The sex charge was on the grounds that the girl was too high to consent, a true double standard when both the boys and the girl were intoxicated. Yet no leeway was given for their altered state and that they all made bad choices that afternoon. Tell the truth, how many of you have been mutually high at the time of sex, if the answer is yes you as young men could face the same situation, a ridiculous charge of rape if the girl is embarrased of pissed the next day. If you are the girl, how many of you would really turn around and instead of thinking "I can't believe what I did last night" would think "I can't believe what he did" and go call the police because you were too drunk and therefore willing to blame him. I hope not many, but in this case that is what happended and I hope most of us women would know better.
