The three University of Minnesota football players arrested in connection with the alleged rape of an 18-year-old woman last week at the players' apartment complex remained in the Hennepin County jail on Sunday. Hennepin County prosecutors have until noon Monday to charge or release them, although they still can be charged after being released. As of Saturday evening, the players had not been formally charged. They were held with bail set $100,000 each. The three were arrested Friday on suspicion of raping an 18-year-old student, who does not attend the U, university police said. Bothe articles covered all the essential information, while the Pioneer Press had a lot more information including quotes from family members of the players and people who knew them.
