Colorado Coach: Sex Parties Needed

The head football coach at the University of Colorado told a former colleague it would be harder to recruit star athletes if the school did not show them a good time and take them to sex parties, according to a deposition released on Friday. 

"If recruits aren't being shown these type of activities ... it would be a recruiting disadvantage," Robert Chichester, a former associate athletic director at the university, quoted head coach Gary Barnett as having told him.

"If alcohol happened to be there, Coach Barnett never really voiced an opinion to me that that was objectionable," Chichester said in the deposition released by the university.

Barnett has denied he condoned such behavior among his players or that he ignored the allegations when they first came to light. At least two of his football players said in their depositions that Barnett repeatedly warned his players about drinking alcohol.

The depositions were taken as part of a lawsuit filed by three women who claim they were raped at or after a December 2001 off-campus recruiting party attended by high school recruits.

Last week Gov. Bill Owens told the university to investigate or he would launch a separate probe.

On Friday, university president Elizabeth Hoffman announced a panel headed by two former state legislators would investigate the recruiting party and report back to the university's board of regents by April 30.

In early 2002, Boulder County District Attorney Mary Keenan declined to file charges over the rape claims at the 2001 party. But this week, Keenan told a Denver newspaper she would reopen the sexual assault investigation to see if any new information gleaned from the depositions could result in the filing of criminal charges.

Its said to say but I wouldn't just point fingers at University of Colorado. I just graduated from a university here in Utah and after talking to some of the football players here the same thing happens. I'm not sure if I would call them "sex parties" but I would definitely say there is alcohol. Most the guys that come for recruiting are under age here in the USA to drink too. It sucks to hear some girls might have been raped during one of these but this is something that should be looked at more any where with a athletic program, and for the most part it seems to be football players, other sports might have it but I've never heard about it.

athletics shouldn't even be on the list of priorities for any school. all you get is a bunch of dumb jocks who grunt one-word sentences and drag their knuckles on the ground.

Yeah...it only brings in millions of dollars to the schools each year. Good luck running a large school without athletics.

There's no need to throw generalizations/insults around either.

:crazy: Maybe, less harsh words next time for the sports fans here, heh.

Actually, I remember seeing an ESPN special about the Oregon Ducks and it talked about how their football team brought in millions of dollars every game from TV contracts, vending, tickets, etc.

The thing is, University of Colorado is not the only uni doing this. It seems that even the smaller colleges are using the same 'recruiting tactics.'

Colleges are under increasing pressure to recruit the best of the best (this applies to everything, not just atheletics).

If its legal, then who &^%@!*# cares how they do their recruiting?

P.S. Anyone who thinks it only happens with athletes - HAHA

Smaller schools are even worse than the larger ones because they typically don't have the same kind of oversight from the government (ie, private vs public) that the larger ones do.

And Original is right, it is not just Athletes.
