Florida State linebacker A.J. Nicholson — linebacker prospect "No. 5B" on Mel Kiper's draft ratingshas been accused of rape. According to the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinal, Nicholson is accused of raping a "19-year-old acquaintence" at a Broward hotel. He has been suspended by coach Bobby Bowden for an "unspecified rule violation" — at least they have a rule against this stuff; that's nice — and will not play in the Orange Bowl.

Nicholson was previously tasered by cops for resisting arrest back in June. Cops say Nicholson came in voluntarily and was let go "at this time." He probably should have just gone to Miami when he had the chance.
