Cincy suspends player for lying
CINCINNATI (AP) — A football player was suspended for the first three games of the 2007 season for lying to officials investigating a claim that players and recruits engaged in sexual activities with a former women’s soccer player at a party, the University of Cincinnati said Friday.
The player, whose identity was not released, at first denied then later admitted having consensual sex with someone and provided conflicting explanations about what else may have occurred that night — a violation of the student code of conduct, the school said.
In the end, investigators said they were unable to substantiate claims made in an anonymous letter sent last month to university president Nancy Zimpher and other administrators.
The anonymous letter claimed sexual activities occurred at an on-campus party during a recruiting visit. Alcohol was served at the party, and the sexual acts were videotaped, according to the letter.
