    Does anyone down there know when to just shut up? Maybe Drew, but that's it.

    Take your effing medicine scumbag. Cry yourself to sleep on a bed made from the millions of dollars you took. Dream of the women whose lives were irreversibly damaged by your players, by your inaction, by the cover-ups in the administration and the boosters.

    Then suck a fat one.

    One thing you have to agree with is schools and their "campus cops", AD's etc. should not be handling crimes of this magnitude. Victims need to go to or be directed to real law authorities. In house stuff is bad for both sides.

    Exactly. The guys on the SiriusXM College station said it best. They said nobody was talking about the Baylor sexual assault cover-up until Mulkey had her rant on Senior night. She talks about how tired she is of everyone "who has no idea what happened" talking about it but nobody was...but now they are again because of her.

    All I read was "I too am an alternate truth teller".

    I love Harry S. Truman's slogan - "The Buck Stops Here." These are some words that Art Briles needs to take to heart. Briles was the head of his FB team, and he needed to do everything in his power to bring about justice. He didn't & is still acting like this stuff should warrant no penalty for him. When the NCAA came sniffing around ISU for potential recruiting infractions, Hoiberg reported the violations and did the appropriate thing for the program and the University. He didn't sit their and say, "I'm innocent, I'm innocent." He took the responsibility on himself. And that stuff is so minor compared to what happened at BU. I realize that their AD dept and the University's handling of the cases are at the core of the problem - but Briles needs to stop defending himself and that school.

    Meanwhile Richmond baseball players are suspended for playing fantasy football.

    Strike 1: Cover up a murder
    Strike 2: Cover up dozens of rapes
    Strike 3: Oh wait strike 2 is actually dozens of strikes right over the plate

    If any athletic department deserves the death penalty it's Baylor. It may hurt the Big 12 in the short term, but having Baylor along as a lightly punished program where murder and rape are intentionally brushed under the rug hurts it much more.

    Their medicine should be to shut down the athletic department University of Chicago style. Just kill it at this point.

    And the rest of the Big IIXII should consider what having a tainted institution like Baylor counted as a peer means to their reputation.

    except that #1, No one covered up Murder... a Basketball Coach, fearing that his payments of tuition to a player murdered by a psychotic teammate might be found out, tried to cover up his improprieties... he was then fired... as was the AD and the President of the University....

    except that #2 is a total of 2 convictions, both of which are being appealed... one is in jail and the other was given, by a central Texas Jury, Probation...

    Nothing else has ever been proven... the crazy numbers that have been leaked have all come from a BOR that is trying desperately to make this all about a rogue football coach and NOT about the total lack of a system for dealing with Title IX problems on the campus...

    The fact that so many of these allegations have not been proven yet keep growing in size indicates an institutional problem somewhere.

    I agree 100%

    I hope that the National attention means that real change will follow.

    Once these cases get to court and Baylor officials get subpeanad, **** is gonna get real.
    Baylor is probably making phone call after phone call to try and get settlements now.

    I think Baylor should be out of the Big 12, add either Cincy or Houston.

    Oh, and **** Baylor.

    Man the poo just keeps coming for Baylor and if they are found to have covered up all this disgusting **** for a game then football program death penalty. Also I think the conference should then kick them out and add Cincinnati the conference should have no ties to them. I just hope Drew can get out while he can, he seems like a decent fellow.
