    But hey look at those recruits!

    Well, it IS a thread about the "Baylor University Sexual Assault Scandal". I'd be curious to hear the positives about it.

    Which is a bigger surprise, that Baylor has an equestrian team or that their football players are still going HAM raping the student body?

    Not a surprise at all. This was such a wider issue. Big 12 should've voted them out and brought in UH, missed opportunity there.

    Art Briles did a very good job with the football program. I think he deserves to be paid. Why does the football coach need to be the guy to be the guy who handles rapes. Shouldn't that be the cops?

    Read more about what happened.

    There were cover ups by Briles and his staff, intimidation of rape victims by the football staff and other violations.

    Ultimately Briles and his staff was fine with rape and assault by the players as long as they could cover it up and win football games.

    https://www.cbssports.com/college-f...se-bowl-ban-for-2018-college-football-season/

    According to a report from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the school is considering -- and has been advised by its law firm -- to impose a bowl ban in 2018, after new developments in the handling of the sexual assault scandal that involved multiple players within the football program.

    The report cites sources that say the NCAA recently interviewed former coach Art Briles, former athletic director Ian McCaw and former president Ken Starr, and those interviews changed the course of the inquiry into the school's handling of multiple Title IX cases. In the wake of those, the school allegedly fears that it could be hit with "lack of institutional control" -- one of the most severe transgressions in the NCAA rule book.

    The Wall Street Journal reported in November 2016 that the program would likely avoid major sanctions, and the investigation would center on players receiving preferential treatment in the school's disciplinary process. Just this past June, the Star-Telegram reported that the investigation could wrap up this summer without a big penalty.

    Apparently, something changed in recent weeks, and it could cost the Bears a potential bowl game.
