Arkansas Suspends Just About Everyone Over Gang-Bang Allegations, Rape LOLs, Other StuffS

The Razorbacks will suit up just nine players for their opener on Friday, and five guys in all have been suspended, the penalty for momentarily turning the program into Caligula of the Ozarks.

Starters Courtney Fortson (pictured) and Stefan Welsh are out indefinitely. Also suspended were Marcus Britt, Glenn Bryant and Nick Mason, each of whom attended a frat party in August where a freshman claimed she had been raped by three unnamed basketball players. (No charges were filed.) Let us now recall the Twittery words of Fortson, shortly after news of the rape investigation broke:

Im gettin it at workouts like a dude who doesnt understand the word no from a drunk girl lol

Today, he sounds chastened, like a man who's learned the hard way that rape is no LOLing matter.

There's always hardships u go through wit life but as long as u have control of yourself I'm sure u will find a way. C fortson

U will, Courtney. U will.
