Not going to comment, I feel the article speaks for itself. Figured y'all would want to read it.
When Samuel Jurgens woke up on a sidewalk outside of Paty Hall shortly before 1 a.m. Monday morning, he thought he was dreaming. His face was numb, his headphones
IMO, both should file civil suits.
It's very unlikely they have any assets he could get. Those three deserve significant jail time and I will be very disappointed if they don't get it.
They weren't messing around that's for sure. The second victim is one of my good friends, he had to get dental work on monday from the beating.
They'll have assets if any of them make it to the NFL. Call it a lottery ticket for getting your face caved in for no good reason. And I hate to say it but the University has assets.

Wow. That's pretty heinous. Sound like a bunch of bonafide assholes. Screw them.
The problem is that you have to get a judgment first. So, you have to pay an attorney to pursue the case out of your own pocket with then hope they will one day make money in the NFL (big long shot there), becasue a Plaintiffs' attorney isn't going to take this case on a contingency fee. Not much likelihood of any recovery from these three.

I don't think the University can be held liable for criminal or civil actions of its students especially when they were not working for the university or doing anything job related to the university while the attacks happened. I'm pretty sure vicarious liability does not extend to students.
And as it is a state university there would likely be various forms of immunity involved.
maybe an attorney will do pro bono work
I hope all 4 do jail time.
How were the players identified and apprehended?

This isn't the kind of case where pro bono work is typically offered, but I guess you never know. I'd say it is wasted effort.
You are probably right. But it might send a message.
Brent Calloway is the cleanest in all of this. Raise your hand if you originally thought that would be the case. I wish this guy had thought for one second after realizing the card was stolen. Did he not have enough money for a coke and snickers in his pocket?!?!?
Just a guess, but when the victim called the cops and they saw his ACT card was gone, they probably could have traced it to see where it was last used (Bryant Hall vending machine).
Of all the trouble/dumb stuff myself or teammates did in no way would any of us ever beat up a random student. Just uncalled for and of course they were much more physical then the other guy and 3 on 1 and kicking while hes down is just flat out being a bully
These thugs have to place at the University or on the football team. Hopefully they are dismissed from both very soon and spend the next few years in jail.
Hate to say it, but at this point, all available evidence points to Callaway being a total dumbass of the highest order.

They will have a 6-year statute of limitations to work with. By then, they'll know whether these guys are in the NFL or not. And I wouldn't call it a "long shot" at all that Eddie Williams, former 5-star safety prospect and top prospect in the state of Florida, could land somewhere and end up a 1st- or 2nd-round pick in a couple of years. Janoris Jenkins says hi.
Sue their asses.

Very true, but Bama has a law school. I'd like to think a true Bama man would help out a fellow Bama man in these circumstances. I love the team, but this is the most disgraceful incident in as long as I can remember.
Janoris Jenkins didn't spend his college years in jail, and that's likely where Eddid is headed. He is a HUGE longshot to make it to the NFL at this point.
Point taken -- depending on who among the group spends significant time in jail. Eddie obviously will have the hardest time avoiding jail time, but also probably has the most NFL potential. Pettway might be a different story. Still, I wouldn't be at all surprised if civil suits are filed against one or more of these guys. They might take a default.
