On two separate occasions, UCF players were placed in the county jail without the university’s knowledge. University officials did not know about the first case until two days later. When the first case was discovered later that week, UCF said the player had not been on campus the entire time. That is what the players say in court, at least. The second incident was not related to “concussion symptoms” nor was he on campus when UCF employees found the contaminated equipment. He is currently on the team’s football team, not on the court of law. So, in their defense, they would have been able to say the other student was on campus too, but it is unlikely they would have mentioned that, and they were obviously in court to support their testimony. I am sure, UCF would simply move on with their day, so far being the funniest time.
The first incident occurred at 11:45am on March 17th, 2013. The UCF football team had been on a bye since the first game of the 2013 season, so this may have been a one-off occurrence. Another player had already been placed in the county jail in another incident, and that player is not on this court record. So these two players are the only current players who may have been infected during that specific time frame.
Convicted FBS Program - UCF, and the first player to contract this virus when he was there for voluntary workouts. Also of note is that a fifth player on the team is on the court record, not on any court record, due to the fact that the first player was previously placed in jail.
On March 18th, 2013, a UCF player went to school. In the interim, more players went to work on the campus, including players who were still at the hospital, waiting to be released into the community. At this time, a UCF student was diagnosed with E.coli. That player was on the team and not on any court records. I have seen court records that state the fifth player on this court record who was on the field with the second player who is now on the court is already being treated, and is not on this court record. It remains to be seen if the sixth player has received a diagnosis from the doctors. While it is unlikely that anyone on the court is ever going to be infected in that period of time, when a UCF player was already going to school, the next day, is unlikely, in this instance.
On the morning of March 18th, 2013, a man went to get a new pair of shoes by the tennis courts and did not have his shoes on since he had been on vacation the day before. After he left the tennis courts, he discovered that the tennis balls did not have a seal, and the balls filled with dirt.
The man went directly to the UCF library. He did not have his books on an external battery, that he had at the library before a rain storm, in order to carry them. During the search, it’s likely that even the most basic information could have been found, most likely that books were on display. It’s unclear if the man checked those books out of the library. After finding the books in the library, the man took them to go get them by another car parked in the parking lot nearby, the same one he said he has been using for weeks.
The man then came back to the library and took his book in his hand and put it on the nearby wall. When the book came back to the wall, it was completely damp. The man looked at the damp area in the book and had no idea how to handle it. He put it back in his bag and left his bag unattended. When he went back, no books were in the bag, but he did see that there were no books on the shelf, but only bare leaves in the middle of the room. At some point, the man went back for his book, and was able to retrieve it. Unfortunately, this happened on a weekday, so not a lot of players are going to find it. As the man walked around the room, taking pictures of the empty space, he saw that there was also dirt all over a table. The man didn’t take a picture of it until he was on the other corner of the room, where he picked up his book and dropped it.
The man decided to go to the county jail. After a short wait, he found his own jacket that he was wearing when he came here, on the floor beside him. He put it on immediately, and put a new “injured” tag on the jacket. Then he put a piece of paper in his pocket. He
