I hope the charges are dropped, he comes to USC, has a great career, gets a degree, and goes on to have a good life. I'm certainly not willing to dismiss him at this point. If Frank thinks he should not be on the team, then fine. But until then, I'm hoping he comes to USC.

You are assuming the charges mean he is guilty. People often are charged with things they did not do. It happened to two people I know personally. Charges don't mean guilt. On the other hand, he could be guilty. I don't know the details of what happened. And I doubt any Gamecock fan does.

All the posts I'm reading say "if he's found guilty" or "if this is true". Chill with the self-righteousness.

It wouldn't be in the news if he was playing PS4 would it?

Recruiting is like an arranged courtship...the daddy is the coach, the girl is the program and the recruit is the guy. The daddy says, "I like this kid. He might be good for my daughter. Are you interested in taking her out?" The recruit says, "Let me think about it" and then either decides that he would like to court her or not.

With all that said, here is something for all you saying we need to hear the WHOLE story before we decide anything....

If a guy was interested in courting your daughter and a story like this was posted in the paper, would you allow her to date him?

I think we all know the dads here would say "hell no." Whether or not he did it remains to be seen, but if your in an instance like that, you either hang out with the wrong people or you put yourself in bad situations. WE need smart guys on this team. Not ones who put themselves in that kind of situation to start with.

Usually you are right, especially in cases where there is real evidence that a man hits a woman. Sheldon Williams of Duke was in a hotel room with 2 teammates and a girl who was taken advantage of the summer before he enrolled at Duke. It turned out he did not participate, but he didn't take action. It was a huge red flag though, and coach K almost pulled his offer, but after talking to him and his family, decided it was just a terrible decision due in part to peer pressure. He went on to set the ACC record in blocks and almost rebounds while being a model student. He is married to Candace Parker now and played NBA ball for a long time. Point is, sometimes kids grow up. Hopefully Thompson is ashamed of what he has done, and looks.in the mirror and takes responsibility for his actions and grows the f up.

Exactly.
Doesn't sound good, but he has to be proven guilty before the staff can render if he can be in school here or not.

I don't think people are judging him.
Many have said if the charges come up true, he has no business being on this basketball team.

But if the charges are unfounded and false, then by all means, let Thompson be on this team.

Yet, the first response to said post was post #43, which was 2 posts and over an hour after the post I referenced. Plenty of time for him to have read it. Since he said "all the posts I'm reading," I assumed he had time to read post #41. Unless he is/you are one of those people that see a comment and immediately respond without reading anything after it in the thread.

Update on Thompson's trial:

https://southcarolina.rivals.com/con....lmyAbxtA.dpbs

The trial date has been pushed back to Aug. 6. The family of the victim has stated they don't intend to drop the charges. Not looking good for Thompson to make it to campus...

He's guilty until proven innocent when it comes to wearing garnet and black. Hope it turn out that he is innocent.
