Your turn

Thursday line is open.

NEWS UPDATE: I wrote earlier today about the lingering issues from the closed investigation of a sexual assault complaint involving Razorback basketball players. Though no charges were filed, admitted behavior seems likely to bring future campus action -- either through the athletic department or student disciplinary bodies.

Talk show callers this afternoon were noting that men's basketball coach John Pelphrey had not been heard from. Now he has, in a prepared statement released by the athletic department:

“We are in the process of reviewing all of the information associated with this matter. We will move forward judiciously and will take appropriate action when the review is complete. We will continue to emphasize to our student-athletes that as members of the Razorback program they have a responsibility to conduct themselves and represent our University and our basketball program in an appropriate manner. As we focus our attention on the review, I will have no further comment until the process has been completed.”
