He could be innocent though. False accusations are made every day.

With a domestic violence charge you are sort of guilty until proved innocent unfortunately. :(

Without speculation -does anyone know what happened? The charges said criminal mischief.

With the news of Jefferson's arrest, it's fair to wonder if he'll be available at all this upcoming season or in the future. Obviously a huge bummer for the team, but if he did commit the offenses he's been charged with, then good riddance. I hope the victim gets the support she needs, and Ramon gets whatever therapy/treatment he needs to prevent something like this from happening again.

Looking at the roster, here's how the runningback situation breaks down:

Fitzpatrick (the only known commodity)

Saunders, Velez (both got a few carries during their RS year, Saunders is bigger and would seem to be the better prospect, Velez is literally my size, which is to say, not a d1 running back's size).

Brooks, Bertrand, Bouhalloufa (the complete unknowns/non-factors)

Murray (the freshman)

all in all, it's not great. My expectation would be a two man tandem of Saunders and Fitzpatrick, but whoooo boy does this one hurt. I was happy to be wrong about the dropoff from Mack to Jefferson being not that big a deal, but I just don't see how this plays out well for the team. They already lose their go to WR, top two TEs, and right tackle, and now this. woof.

It’s amazing how a 19 year old brain works. Do first...think later. I hope that this turns out to be lesser than it seems right now. But like UMSF said...we need to think about life without Jefferson carrying the rock. :cry:

I bet he never thought about losing his scolarship, being kicked out of school, and destroying his playing career and education at UMaine before he put himself in the situation he is in. :|

For all the pomp & circumstance that the UM athletic dept. goes through in educating their student-athletes about respect, domestic violence, etc, etc....it never seems to sink in for a few unfortunate souls.

So yeah...unless their is an unforseen circumstance we are probably looking at a new featured RB next fall.
