Just close the whole university. It's not like it adds value to the world.

Art Briles *alleged* text messages. It's as bad as you think they are.
Don't give them the death penalty, kick them out of the ncaa.
I can report that they weren't as bad as I thought they'd be.

Bad enough tho. This one is the worst:

Quote:
On September 20, 2013, after a player was arrested for assault and threatening to kill a non-athlete, a football operations staff official tried to talk the victim out of pressing criminal charges. Meanwhile, Coach Briles texted Athletics Director Ian McCaw: “Just talked to [the player] – he said Waco PD was there – said they were going to keep it quiet – Wasn’t a set up deal... I'll get shill (Shillinglaw) to ck on Sibley (local attorney Jonathan Sibley).” Athletics Director Ian McCaw replied: “That would be great if they kept it quiet!"

Re: OK, Time to Nuke Baylor (aka Art Briles is a scumbag)

yeah those were not as bad as i thought they'd be. i thought they'd be way more explicit or specifically woman-hating (i.e. she deserved it).

still not good obv.

Re: OK, Time to Nuke Baylor (aka Art Briles is a scumbag)

Well, one was like "those players are pretty bad dudes, what was she thinking, hanging around them?" about a gang rape

Couple others were also explicitly victim blaming and woman hating

I didn't go to tmz, though. Maybe a different selection

They also covered up dozens of rapes and threatened to tell victims' parents they were drinking and ****ing if they didn't keep quiet. It is of course a super Christian school.

If only there was a way to determine the quality of bass fishing at specific schools. Oh wait there's a collegiate bass fishing championship and Baylor finished 222nd. Alabama was 1st.

There's not as much skill in poker as this site would like you to believe.

JESUS CHRIST

http://www.wacotrib.com/news/police/...a1e7740c3.html

Quote:
A member of the Baylor University athletics department was arrested early Saturday morning in a prostitution sting.
McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said Brandon Washington, 33, was arrested by deputies at a local hotel on a solicitation of prostitution charge, a Class B misdemeanor.
The sheriff identified Washington as a strength coach at Baylor. Baylor confirmed that Washington was employed by Baylor when he was arrested early Saturday, but said he was immediately fired upon the school learning of the arrest. County records identify Washington as an employee of 1090 Athletics.


Nuke from orbit.

I'll admit I don't follow the collegiate bass fishing competition, but being from Alabama, I'll have to admit that the results don't surprise me, actually they confirm the low opinion I have of everything associated with Waco.

Roll Tide.

A stronger disincentive would be to bar coaches, administrators, etc., for life for "capital offenses", such as using influence to alter grades or legal proceedings.

Am I being naive in thinking this would be quite effective?
I think the death penalty is purely for those schools that have shown no regard for decency - legally or NCAA wise. It would have to be shown to be headed by or condoned by the school administration. That is why Title 9 was put to law. It forces schools to investigate, report and solve the issues defined. If they don't, the consequences reach further than the NCAA's reach. So in this regard Baylor should be nuked.

Quote:
Today was senior day for the Baylor women’s basketball team, and rather than spending her time at the mic focused solely on her soon-departing players, head coach Kim Mulkey took a different route.

The storied coach decided to share a few choice words for parents voicing concern over sending their daughters to a place currently being sued for allowing and enabling football players to commit an alleged 52 sexual assaults in four years. Or rather, she shared some instructions for the fans—who cheered her both during and after her speech—telling them that if a parent tells them they won’t let their daughter attend Baylor, they should “knock them right in the face.”

“If somebody’s around you and they ever say, ‘I will never send my daughter to Baylor,’ you knock them right in the face.”

[Pause for applause.]

“Because these kids are on this campus. I work here. My daughter went to school here. And it’s the best damn school in America.”
