BYU........not sure I want to trade one form of abuse against women for another. Don't want either.
I would take Houston over Baylor at this point....
Ummm, you took this way too far..... Baylor covered up multiple accounts over multiple years.... the situations you just referred to were single accounts and the individuals through the process will be treated or have been treated according.
Baylor’s likely death penalty will happen by being left out in a P5 to P4 transition. They won’t have fellow B12 members lobbying for their inclusion in another conference and they won’t have the in-state political clout this time around due to their issues and private school standing. This is more likely IMO than the B12 kicking them out or the NCAA levying significant sanctions.
It can be done but doubt our esteemed leadership will do anything. It would be completely out of character for them to do anything beyond meet and talk, then have Boren pontificate.
... the Big 12 has the option to kick Baylor out of the conference based on the league’s bylaws. Specifically, Section 1.3.2 regards “institutional control.” It states: “Each Member accepts the primary responsibility for the administration of rules and regulations, for investigating known or alleged violations at that institution, and for taking prompt and effective corrective actions where violations have occurred.”
Baylor certainly is not helping an already hurting Big 12 reputation. I say let them go.
I always felt there were 3 solid expansion schools for the Big 12 geographically. If we remove Baylor, we could get back to 12 with Houston, BYU, and Cincy. All three have shown signs of hope in football with BYU and Cincy being good at basketball. I don't mind the addition of another Texas school if we are removing one first. Perhaps the 9 team conference could agree on these 3.
I won't hold my breath on any punishment coming to Baylor... at least from the Big 12.
Burn that rape factory to the ground
Cannot see BYU replacing Baylor. That would be like Lucifer replacing Satan, at least in the eyes of many conference members.
Pretty sure that Cinncy is "on-call" for a vacant Baylor spot.
Since thats the team Okie wanted it would smooth them over a bit. Texas will just love the expanded footprint and no new Texas school.
That's how it works in the legal system. That's not how it works in the real world.
Please let this happen.
I'd rather they stay and go back down to the 90s Baylor and be an easy win for us.
First and foremost I hope the violence/assault stops on their campus and that the victims can resume a normal/safe life as much as possible.
Too bad Janet Reno isn't around anymore.
How would kicking them out affect the GOR? Could OU use it as an out?
This is where I am too. It's not the image. It's that ISU's AD is not a criminal organization and Baylor athletics is. They should start a conference for ADs that condone murder and rape.
Why should ISU have to compete against a school that operates in a completely lawless and immoral manner when we do not?
IIRC it takes 8 schools to abolish the GOR and migrate to other conferences. The odds are higher IMO of abolishing the GOR than voting to kick out BU and actually replacing them.
Maybe they'll kill football on their own.
I'd say keep them but don't let them have sports that compete with other teams in the Big 12.
The more I think about it, the more I think it would be appropriate to penalize their football program alone, but harshly. Shut it down for two years. At some point, there has to be an agreed upon line that clearly shows that people are more important than these programs.
Wouldn't have guessed 34 Baylor fans frequented our site.
