Strange But True Football Stories: Athens, OH Edition

Vinny, what the hell is going on at your alma mater?

First somebody allegedly slips Frank Solich a date rape drug mickey, and then one of your Tight Ends gets arrested for punching a police horse. Seriously, the kid supposedly punched a police horse, just like Alex Karras in Blazing Saddles.

What's even more interesting is that according to the Cowopolis Dispatch, this is apparently the third time that an Ohio U student has allegedly taken a poke at this cop's horse (whose name is "Chip," in case you're interested). The officer in question suggests that "alcohol is usually involved" in these incidents. Imagine that.

Cleveland fans are no strangers to police punching jocks, but this is a new one on me. For the record, Chip weighs about 1,100 lbs, while the accused weighs in at 233 lbs. My money's on the horse, but if this is the kind of heart Solich's players show, then the Bobcat football program is heading in the right direction.
