    Only a matter of time. You build a palace and treat them like kings eventually there is gonna be problems. Maybe now, maybe later but it's gonna happen.

    Wow, when there is smoke...that's not good for Self

    All five people listed as witnesses in connection with the reported rape are members of the KU men’s basketball team, according to the police report.

    First of all, if true, I feel awful for the girl. No idea if she willingly put herself in a bad situation or not, but doesn't mean she deserves any sort of sexual assault.

    Second - why do I have a feeling if KU bball players are in some way at fault in this, we won't see punishments for a long time.

    And to go with your bolded, I thought more smoke was here.

    Sounds like that 6th KU player could be in trouble.

    When KU built this luxury hotel complex for basketball and I heard a few non-basketball players were going to live there as tokens to avoid it looking like pro basketball my first thought was there will be some trouble.

    This will be like Suh hitting parked cars in the middle of the night several times in Lincoln and somehow never being intoxicated just a bad late night driver multiple times.

    I hope it never happens, but IF something like this ever happens at ISU, I hope they clean house for all involved, and the fanbase is reasonable enough to condemn the actions of some twisted individuals.

    Nah, they'll wait until all players who were potentially involved have left the school. Then they deny giving anyone special treatment

    This whole situation is messed up. A 16 year old? Seriously?

    I was looking through KUs roster and was reminded that Tyler Self, Bill's son, is on the team. Coach Self doesn't have an excuse that he doesn't know what's going on off the court. It's about to rain down on Tyler.

    In some states, 16 year olds can be statutory rape, sometimes dependent on an age difference with the child, but I don't think Kansas is one of them.

    I'm sure we will get the usual in such cases, delay, which is already happening, and attacking the victim.

    Just like Kirk knew about the free housing scandal from Brian?

    This is Self's default status:

    Self has plausible deniability, like any coach in a scandal, because he distances himself from any wrongdoing.
