“Power Gobbling” Hazing Update: Outside Investigator Hired to Look Into Great Falls High’s Lack of Action

Last week we introduced you to a new hazing fad, “power gobbling” which resulted in Great Falls High School offensive lineman Alex Botina-Roehm, 18, being charged with rape and two counts of sexual assault. The question we had at the time was: If this happened in September, why wasn’t Botina-Roehm charged until November? Turns out, one of the victims DID report it to school officials when it happened, but then…

You have to give it to kids today: while they love the classics (see yesterday’s Penis in the Pizza Box story) but they also get creative and come up with new ways to haze their teammates. Today we’ll introduce you to “Power Gobbling.” Power Gobbling involves–of course–two people: the “offender” and the “victim” usually while both are changing in the locker room. According to Great Falls, Montana police, the offender…

Mom of Clover HS Football PLayer Says Son Was Hazed With Broom Handle

#Ohio University Soccer Club Suspended Over #Hazing Allegations

No, it’s not Ohio State, and it’s not even a an NCAA sanctioned team (actually it’s a club team) but the school is still taking decisive action by suspending them.

HS #Wrestler’s Mom Seeks $650K From School Following “Swirlie With Chunks”

Ah, the Swirlie: the classic high school prank of jamming someone’s head into a flushing toilet. Bad enough in an “un-used” commode, but very disgusting when there’s some urine in it. But to get one with feces already in the bowl? The mother of one former Columbus High School (Nebraska) wrestler thinks that little trick by some of his teammates at a camp should be worth about $650,000. Sounds about…
