There's two sides to the story and former UT employee who worked in environment with athletes had this to say about her experiences:
My heart absolutely breaks for the lies that are being spread about the UT football team. I knew many of these guys being accused. I was friends with AJ and Curt, I was also friends with former UT football players. At times it was me and 10 of them in a room, alone. I never once felt threatened. If anything they gave me the utmost respect. I would say one word and they would listen. At no time whatsoever did I ever feel sexually harassed or threatened. I went to UT for 7 years. Working one on one with these men I never felt unsafe. If anything, one night I was outside of a club and a man was pushing my roommate around and one of them came running from Vol Hall and stepped in between and helped my friend. I don't want to comment on the accusers because honestly I've probably met them at the various football parties I attended. But it's sad to think they are filing a lawsuit against UT for the money while the university's reputation is being ruined. I have a lot of stories that are too personal to really broadcast but I know that these claims are absolutely ridiculous.
