“Just don’t talk about anything and we can fix this.”
“You guys look we can fix this, we just need everyone’s help.”
If there’s anything worse than high school sports hazings, it’s high school jocks trying to cover their tracks and derail an investigation into what happened. Above are Facebook comments from members of a team accusing of a really disgusting new hazing technique.
Details aren’t real clear, but apparently members of the Andover High (MA) boys basketball team allegedly decided that wedgies and wet willies weren’t good enough to haze the new members of the team. No, according to authorities, at least two “ringleaders” forced younger team members to participate ina game of “wet biscuit,” where the loser was–we’re not making this up!–forced to eat a semen-soaked cookie.
Nothing says “Welcome to the team” liking eating baked goods covered in one of your teammate’s DNA.
Who thinks of this stuff, and more importantly, who thinks of this stuff and then creates a Facebook page where the goal is to gather everyone on the team after school and come up with a plan to stonewall the investigation into this incident.
So far, at least five students have been kicked off the basketball team and and some kind of school suspensions. The two ringleaders, also known as the inventors of “The Wet Biscuit Game” have been expelled.

Thanksgiving is over, but the “power gobbling” continues. You remember this new hazing “technique” don’t you? If not, here’s the earlier story.
So, here’s the latest on this spreading scandal from the Great Falls Tribune:
Alex Mauricio Botina-Roehm, 18, faces a felony charge of sexual intercourse without consent as well as two misdemeanor charges of sexual assault after allegedly picking up two underclassmen football players by the crotch while in the shower room and in the case of one of the victims, allegedly sticking his thumb into his rectum.
Roehm was charged with the crime on Nov. 15, but the attorney for the victim, Scott Anderson of Anderson and Bliven in Kalispell, said the family didn’t get adequate assurance from the school district that their client would be protected from Roehm even after he was arrested and suspended from school.
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 nothing happened.
It wasn’t until much later that the mother of one of the victims approached the school to find out where the investigation was. It wasn’t. The most damning evidence against the school may be an email from the school counselor to the associate principal in back September that said the football coach should have a “come-to-Jesus” meeting with the players.
Sure, that beats an actual investigation any time. Then you don’t have to admit that your school has an sports hazing problem. Everyone wins!
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 in this case, Alex Mauricio Botina-Roehm, 18, a senior offensive lineman approaches his victim from behind, and places his fist AND ARM under the butt and groin of the victim. At that point, the offender elevates the victim off of the ground with support from the offender’s free hand, which is wrapped around the front of the victim. So, kind of a manual “wedgie” if you will. No underwear needed!
As fun and painful as that sounds, that’s really not what got Mr. Botina-Roehm in trouble. No, he decided to do an “Enhanced Power Gobbler” and allegedly–in the middle of the move–also inserted his thumb into the victim’s rectum.
Now, you don’t have just charging of hazing, you also have felony sexual intercourse without consent and two counts of misdemeanor sexual assault.

Patrick Cornelius is (was) the assistant football coach at Milford High School (MA) until just over a week ago when school officials claim he overreacted to some locker room “roughhousing” according to School Superintendent Robert “See No Evil” Tremblay. Cornelius admits to yelling profanity, throwing a a book of plays to the ground and knocking over a couple of trash barrels, but insists he did not touch or harm any of the players. What set Cornelius off?
Sounds to us (and hey, we’ve only been covering bad jocks for eleven years, so what do we know?) like hazing. Locker room “roughhousing” involves snapping towels, noogies, hard slaps to the back so you leave a hand print, and other assorted shenanigans (yes, we used the S word.) What’s NOT roughhousing? Making a freshman football player follow you into a bathroom stall and wipe your behind after you defecate.
Yes folks, that’s what “team bonding” has evolved into in the United States. So, when Coach Cornelius walked into the locker room and found a line of freshman players outside a bathroom stall with a senior inside taking a dump, he kinda got a little upset. Would you have reacted any other way in a similar situation? Following his little rant, Cornelius follow MHSAA guidelines and reported the incident to head coach Tom Cullen, as well as the Milford athletic director and principal.
In this situation, rather than applaud his actions, the district instead found him at fault and fired him. No hazing at our school, move along.
So we applaud coach Cornelius and hope he is hired soon by another school in the area, one that can tell the difference between roughhousing and hazing. As for School Superintendent Tremblay: get a clue.

The football team’s tradition of hazing has been allegedly going on for several years, but it only took the administration at Clover High School (SC) a few days to decide that 10 players involved in a recent incident would be permanently kicked off the team. Thirteen players were already suspended from the squad and missed last Friday’s game against Gaffney which Clover lost 55-3.
As reported earlier here, upperclassmen on the team are accused of assaulting a few younger teammates, including one who claims the older boys held him down and threatened to shove a broom handle into his backside. The local sheriff is also investigating and criminal charges are not out of the question at this time.
