    Former coaches, wrestlers, and colleagues rush to defend Rep. Jim Jordan

    A swamp hit on Jordan is what this is.


    Former coaches, wrestlers, and colleagues rush to defend Rep. Jim Jordan


    ...

    “At no time while Jim Jordan was a coach with me at Ohio State did either of us ignore abuse of our wrestlers,” Hellickson continued. “That is not the kind of man Jim is, and it is not the kind of coach that I was.”

    George Pardos, who left the Marine Corps to wrestle at Ohio State from 1988 to 1993, said the same. There were always rumors about the doctor who showered with the team, Pardos told me, “but [a] lot of the stories were just running jokes.” Older than most of the other wrestlers because of his time enlisted, Pardos said he served as “an unofficial team captain” and can’t recall hearing a single allegation of abuse.

    And while Pardos noted that Jordan “literally carried me” to get medical treatment after an injury and checked another teammate into rehab for drug abuse, the two weren’t exactly best friends. “Let me say this,” he said after a pause during a long phone interview, “me and Jimmy didn’t really get along. He didn’t really like me a lot.”

    But while the two “butted heads” over religion and politics, Pardos insisted Jordan was incapable of ignoring abuse. If the assistant coach knew Strauss was abusing students, Pardos tells me, “knowing Jimmy I think he would’ve ripped of his arm and beat him with it.”

    I'm pretty sure JoePa had lots of defenders too....until he didn't. Let's see how things pan out.

    Seriously, I think the defenders of Jordan come at this from the perspective of "this happens all the time. What's the big deal, it's just a bunch of guys?"

    Heh-heh... Fun to watch the defense.

    But I guess in your right wing world, that does not count.
