    As long as theyre still in the conference theyre getting off easy.

    Shouldve booted them and given Houston their spot as an easy texas-for-texas trade.

    If they really intended to make the situation right, they'd give all that money in restitution to the victims.

    I think 50 is the low estimate of rapes the football program sanctioned so about 40k per rape.

    Weak sauce, pretty much what you would expect from the corrupt and self serving world of big time collegiate P5 sports.

    That's unreal. So far has anyone got jail time? Any of the leaders?

    The heck with fining them, just kick them out and keep all of the money for victim restitution. They do not meet the minimum qualifications to be in the Big 12. They should never have been let in in the first place.

    Per rape I think it's in the same ballpark to celebrate a win or rape someone per Big 12 fines.

    I know I am going to get hammered for this but it isn't up to the conference to get these victims justice, that is what the justice system is for. I know that isn't likely to happen but the conference can't step in and give it to them as much as I wish they could. However it is up to the conference to protect the conference brand and protect the reputation of the rest of the conference. That is why I think they should have done much, much more than this.

    This is not a legal setting just a fine by the conference. This is in addition to whatever legal mess they got themselves into. My deal is if the rapes were over a 2-3 year time frame the fine should be no less that what the Big 12 gave them. If we paid them 20 million per year, the fine should be 20 million per year of the coverup. If it's 3 years that totals 60 million. If you don't like it - leave. 2 million is horse ****

    I don't care how good or bad their football team is.

    If our society truly honored appropriateness, these institutions would be shut down.

    It's crazy how little attention this got from the national media. I mean the Brock Turner was a household name. He should be rotting in prison but no one can even name any of the Baylor players (or the scores of other athletes getting a free pass for their crimes). They all are getting off even easier than Turner did.

    This is just the fine from the conference.

    I am assuming there are civil suits from the victims and their families, too?
