    Missouri
    football coach Gary Pinkel acknowledged Friday he knew about a 2008 rape allegation against former running back Derrick Washington, but didn't discipline him because police didn't file charges.

    Pinkel and Missouri athletic director Mike Alden addressed the media on Friday, one day after ESPN's "Outside the Lines" reported that Missouri officials were aware of two allegations against Washington before his 2010 arrest for deviate sexual assault.

    Alden said the university made mistakes and learned from them and that now the majority of people on campus are aware sexual assault allegations must be reported to a Title IX coordinator.


    These seem like two separate instances, from two years apart... not sure.

    Vindictive or justified prosecution?

    Were these women trying to smear the University and the football program, or were they right for pressing charges?
