Baylor University is under scrutiny for how it has handled sexual assaults involving student athletes, including several members of the Baylor football team. ESPN’s Outside the Lines reported in January several examples in which school officials either failed to investigate, or failed to adequately investigate, allegations of sexual violence. In many cases, officials did not provide support to those who reported assaults, in apparent violation of Title IX federal law. A new report details that at least some Baylor officials, including coaches, knew about many of the incidents, and most players did not miss playing time for disciplinary reasons. None of the incidents has been widely reported in the media. Shocking => not. This is an ongoing story… BREAKING: According to multiple reports, Baylor has fired head coach Art Briles in wake of sexual assault scandal. Formal announcement is expected later today.
Ok. That’s it for now…
