Jerramy Stevens

Just when you thought it was safe to start liking football players again after the whole Michael Vick debacle, the Seattle Times comes out with a special four-part story about the University of Washington’s football program under Rick Neuheisel (now head football coach at UCLA) and company. The first part is a searing indictment of player Jerramy Stevens (yes, that’s how he spells his first name), former Seattle Seahawk and current of Tampa Bay Buccaneer. He’s described by the editors of Jezebel as the kind of guy who has no problems “drugging a virgin sorority girl and anally-raping her in the alley next to a frat house.”

The next time somone says to you that college football programs aren’t as corrupt as people think, that star athletes aren’t ridiculously overindulged, that things like the orgy scene in Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut never happen in real life, that Tom Wolfe’s I Am Charlotte Simmons didn’t seem realistic, feel free to mention this special four-part story.
