An example needs to be made and a one year ban would send a strong message.
    I agree - remember that Penn State leadership also broke the law when they failed to report the potential child abuse that occurred in the showers. They got slammed, but the NCAA later pulled back most of their sanctions. I don't see them going even further here than they did there.

    Yahoo reports that the Waco police were complicit in burying the police report.

    Definitely a case of Seminoling here.

    I hope Baylor gets buried for this, there is no excuse for not investigating. At some point winning football games has to stop trumping the law.

    I disagree. You go to the ER with a severe migraine and you may wait in line for hours, if you go to the ER with your arm cut off you would expect immediate attention. I would rank having a limb cut off right up there with rape.

    Forget the law... it's a matter of common decency toward our fellow human beings. When sports becomes more important than that, it is troubling.

    Other coaches are starting to speak out (supposedly).


    "They're gonna have to fire him, aren't they?" a veteran college coach asked.

    And mornings.

    And people!"

    You would think Ken Starr would know how to run an investigation into sexual misconduct!

    This quote comes right out of Watergate - for those of you who are old enough to remember it... I think the same basic question was asked Richard Nixon - What do you know & when did you know it?

    There are three big questions here: Who knew what happened? When did they know about it? And, what action was taken?

    Like both Penn State and FSU, Baylor is looking at some major Title IX problems.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Re: Baylor needs to hire some good lawyers

    As a professor at a large research university receiving federal funds, I was recently required to attend a training session on Title IX. I can tell you that no matter what the underlying facts of the matter are, Baylor is currently in deep trouble. If found guilty of a Title IX violation, and they will be, it can result in withdrawal of all federal funds from the institution. This means all federal research grants, educational grants in aid and guaranteed student loans. How many of their students will continue to attend Baylor, a private university, if they can no longer get grants or loans to pay their bills? Football is small potatoes here. Baylor itself is facing the gallows.

    Re: Baylor needs to hire some good lawyers

    A while back, when info on FSU's cover ups was revealing how MUCH covering has been done there because it went way farther than Winston, I made some statements on the thread about it. I gather I said it all wrong because everybody thought I was defending FSU when I was actually doing the opposite. My kids (one is a daughter!) went there! I have friends whose kids go there now! I was horrified to learn about the University's actions. My point was, at that time, and still is that I'm afraid this kind of thing is happening at colleges all over the place. I fear that, in order to protect sports teams as well as schools, they are covering this up. That's a nightmare! It looks to me as if many of you agree and I am so relieved. Maybe Redwood Forrest is right: Mothers may need to band together on this one.
