    Other coaches are starting to speak out (supposedly).
    But isn't winning college football games more important than being ethical, professional, honest, having any semblance of integrity, etc.? I used to think highly of THAT coach. No longer! Maybe Baylor needs the SMU punishment!

    I love the Crimson Tide, but I want to win the RIGHT way! If that can't happen, I'd rather be 0 - 12 and go to a bowl game and lose it toooo!

    Re: Baylor needs to hire some good lawyers

    I was wondering how long it would take someone (probably in Texas) to make the Snow Monkey U comparison. (That is how they were referred to, at the place I worked at back in the day. No idea who came up with it, or why, but it sounded funny, so it stuck.)

    The difference being one had a former gubner saying "we had to honor a contract" and the other has a coach that I never had respect for.

    I lived in Texas back in those days. The whole Mustang Mania thing was crazy

    Soon after the probation hit - some clever fans of other SWC schools produced a "Probation Mania" bumper sticker. I couldn't find one but it looked something like this

    Re: Baylor needs to hire some good lawyers

    I've said this before, but it's worth repeating. No football program, Alabama included, is more important than protecting innocent people from predators. I don't understand this, we've seen various versions of this at Tennessee, Baylor, FSU, and Penn State, and they all seem to put the football program ahead of the victims. I don't hold a program accountable when someone involved with the program sexual assaults someone, that can be an isolated incident. I do however, hold the entire program responsible when that turns into a cover-up or helping the rapist instead of the victim.

    There clearly are a few football programs that turned into havens for rapists. I wish people would hold them more accountable, how can someone go cheer for rapists? What kind of warped crap is going on in their head that they can do that?
    Apologies if I said anything that could be construed as a personal insult.

    I agree 100% about cheering for those players (see Florida St) but when the coaches and admin are involved (see Penn St) it is not the players. This is a quandary for me. There is no win/win here for me. But it is sad that hoodlums rule the roost. Think about that. Hoodlums did not have to "take over" Florida State. They "gave" it to them. It appears to be the same at Baylor.

    How long would a mayor of a city last if he opened the doors of the jail and gave each hoodlum keys to the city?
    I do not believe in atheists, therefore they do not exist.

    Makes me think why they didn't fire the football coach first.

    Because football is more important than anything else. It brings in money.

    Yes................our good buddy, Chip ("Nick Saban is coming to Austin") Brown, is the one pushing this story.

    Baylor says no announcement until June 3.

    So, there...............

    The president appears safe for now after he addressed the board of regents. Some rumblings Art Briles may be fired today.
