Josh LeBlanc

Georgetown Hoyas’ basketball players Josh LeBlanc and Galen Alexander received restraining orders sometime in November resulting from accusations of harassment and burglary, and freshman Myron Gardner was accused of “sexual harassment and assault,” according to one of the filings, according to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello.

ESPN obtained court records that were filed on November 5th by a Georgetown student, a restraining order against LeBlanc and Alexander, a request that was granted on November 20th after both players failed to appear

In response to an alleged burglary that I believe Joshua LeBlanc committed against me on September 16, 2019, Joshua threatened bodily harm against myself and my roommate,” the complaint read. “He continued to threaten me verbally and via text message in the following week.”

Later, on November 13th, the student’s roommate filed for a separate restraining order against Gardner, LeBlanc and Alexander, accusing Gardner of sexually harassing and assaulting her back on September 15th, and said that her home was burglarized by Gardner, LeBlanc and Alexander on September 16th.

She also noted she filed complaints with both the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington and Georgetown University Police Department.

“Georgetown University men’s basketball players James Akinjo and Josh LeBlanc will not be playing for the men’s basketball team effective immediately and will not be members of the team for the remainder of the season,” Georgetown said in an official statement.

“Georgetown takes student conduct issues very seriously and ensures that they are investigated thoroughly. While we are not able to comment on specific cases, we have processes for investigating and adjudicating alleged violations for our student code that are fair to both parties. We encourage any student who has a concern to be in contact with the Georgetown University Police Department or the Office of Student Conduct.”

Tennessee AD Phillip Fulmer Rules Out Return as Coach

Phillip Fulmer

Tennessee Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer ruled out a potential return as the Vols head coach, saying he no desire to return to the sideline and that the “coaching chapter of my life is closed”, according to ESPN’s Chris Low.

Fulmer, 69, led the Vols to a national championship in 1998. Fulmer was fired at the end of the 2008 season following a second losing season in four years.

“We’ve got a good football coach, and I believe in Jeremy Pruitt totally,” Fulmer said. “I have no interest in coaching again and would rather spend that time being a grandfather and doing whatever I can as athletic director in helping Jeremy get this program where we all want it to be. Any talk of me coaching again is just a bunch of rumors.”

Fulmer’s only focus is being the AD at his alma mater.

“I’m way past that point in my life,” Fulmer said. “I love the job I have [as AD] and am committed to seeing this thing through.”

“Jeremy Pruitt is as bought in as anybody could possibly be bought in at the University of Tennessee,” Fulmer said.

Gov. Gavin Newsom Signs into Law Fair Pay to Play Act

Fair Pay to Play Act

Governor Gavin Newsom has signed into law the Fair Pay to Play Act, which says colleges in California cannot punish their athletes for collecting endorsement money, starting in 2023, a monumental decision that defies the NCAA, according to ESPN’s Dan Murphy.

Despite push back from the NCAA, California stood firm and their decision will likely lead to other states making the same call.

“Every single student in the university can market their name, image and likeness; they can go and get a YouTube channel, and they can monetize that,” Newsom said, during an interview with The New York Times. “The only group that can’t are athletes. Why is that?”

Newsom added that the measure was “a big move to expose the farce and to challenge a system that is outsized in its capacity to push back.”

The news was celebrated on Twitter:
