Ethics review sought as ex-coaches at Ohio St. defend Jordan

Ethics review sought as ex-coaches at Ohio St. defend Jordan

Serial groper. "Dr. Jelly Paws".

Others, including Jordan, have questioned the credibility of DiSabato, the first and most public former wrestler to make the allegations against Strauss and Jordan. "I have nothing but respect for this man, but he knew as far as I'm concerned".

Strauss is accused of inappropriately touching players during exams and for "ogling" players in the showers. Some said Strauss groped them barehanded during physicals, had them drop their trousers even while examining them for a cough or heartburn, and badgered students to go home with him.

"Unlike the Olympians who were minor children at the time they were abused, these former wrestlers were adults at the time they claim they were sexually abused by the Ohio State team doctor", the Texas Republican said in a statement. In that video, Hellickson said he complained to Strauss about the doctor's behavior, and Strauss defended himself as being thorough.

Some athletes saw it as the price of getting medicine or treatment.

Strauss's family said it will cooperate with the probe.

Some ex-wrestlers from the late 1980s and early 1990s say they were groped by team doctor Richard Strauss and that Jordan knew then about the alleged abuse as an assistant coach.

Hellickson said in a statement that he never ignored abuse of wrestlers.

Neither Arsene Wenger nor his players could afford themselves to lose another match if they still want to be in the top four. Arsenal is still keeping the dream to be qualified in Champions League after the victory over Manchester on Sunday.

The former athlete says he didn't know of anyone who specifically addressed their concerns about Strauss directly to Hellickson or Jordan, but that withstanding, he didn't understand why Jordan issued public statements denying that he knew of any alleged abuse by Strauss. Three former wrestlers told NBC that Jordan was aware of the abuse at the time, and one said he told Jordan about it directly. If they had, I would have dealt with it.

"Either seven former student wrestlers who were under the supervision of Rep. Jordan are all lying or Rep. Jordan is lying", said Wertheimer.

He also said that "no one reported any type of abuse" to him. DiSabato has said the attacks are an example of victim blaming.

Range told the Washington Post that "Jordan definitely knew that these things were happening - yes, most definitely". Other former wrestlers are defending Jordan, though also acknowledging a culture of inappropriate activity by outsiders at Larkins Hall, where wrestlers worked out and showered.

It wasn't immediately clear whether they, like Jordan, plan to talk with the independent investigators from Seattle-based Perkins Coie who are reviewing the allegations against the now-dead doctor and what, if anything, the university knew about the allegations.

The university said in a statement Thursday that it is "focused on uncovering what may have happened during this era, what university leaders at the time may have known, and whether any response at the time was appropriate".

"We remain steadfastly committed to uncovering the truth", it added.

The pressure is increasing on the congressman as lawmakers are slowly returning to Washington this week after a weeklong recess for Independence Day. One of the leading talking points, which Jordan referenced Friday night, is the choice of the investigative law firm retained by Ohio State in the Strauss matter.
