For anyone who doesn't know, Brenda Tracy was raped by Oregon State players in the early 2000s and now goes around the country working with coaches and their teams (including Mike Riley recently) on how not to be a rapist/perpetuate surprise sex culture.

I could definitely buy that Izzo doesn't know how bad it is considering he keeps putting his foot in his mouth. His public takes on the whole situation have been very much what I would expect from a well-meaning aging rich guy who lives in a bubble.

Do you believe the NCAA would pull the trigger on that if they wouldn't do it to Penn State?

EDIT: though if Emmert really knew about Nassar maybe the NCAA will be very different soon enough!

I get where Evan is coming from since so many victims did tell their parents and their parents ignored them or outright accused them of lying, but it's dumb to assume that about every one when there are 250 victims.

This might end up being something. Apparently the Notre Dame AD advised USA gymnastics.


I am also glad the guy punched Nassar and hope Nassar gets shived in prison.

Good thing Notre Dame doesn't have any notorious athletic department sex scandals recently

I mean this wasn't a serious matter like having lunch with Deion Sanders.

Wasn't the violation actually that he lied about having lunch with Deion Sanders, which was otherwise legal?

The replies to her tweet about it are so embarrassing. Some fans really have gone full Paterno Protector about Dantonio and Izzo.

Remember the good ol' pre-Penn State days when OSU was the official molester school because a guy in Buckeye gear was on To Catch a Predator?

Michigan's only clean rival is Minnesota now.

They had that gang surprise sex a couple of years ago but those were players, not employees, and I think everybody's gone.

NCAA Finds NCAA Legislation to be Ineffective

Doesnít the NCAA actually give the death penalty all the time to like, D3 tennis programs? They will never do it to a revenue program again after it permanently hosed SMU.

At what point do we consider this isn't a MSU problem so much as a NCAA problem?

Seriously, I'm all for a MSU death penalty, but something about this just screams the NCAA denying federal involvement just for the sake of the NCAA mechanics remaining in place without oversight, oversight being what the NCAA is supposed to do in the loving first place.

At what point do we shift from "Burn MSU to the ground" to "Burn the NCAA to the ground"?

To circle back to a point made in the early stages of the D&D version of this thread, itís more like a problem with powerful institutions in general
