Oh Baylor, Where Art Thou?

Art Briles shouldn't be allowed to manage a Walmart after this. And yet, I guarantee you stuff of this level is probably going down in a similar fashion at multiple FBS schools right now. It's just a matter of whether we eventually find out or not.

The text messages come from Colin Schillinghaw, who was with Art Briles since 1988 at Stephenville HS.

 

FAU's President Dr. John Kelly, their AD (Patrick Chun) and HC (Lane Kiffin) went on the record to say that Kendal Briles was properly vetted.

 

I think that they didn't complete the job. 

 

Quote

The vetting process for Kendal Briles, the Owls’ new offensive coordinator, included a conversation with NCAA regulators to gauge their assessment of the former Baylor assistant coach’s standing.

“We’ve gone through everything with the NCAA that was going on at Baylor,” Chun said. “We’re happy he’s here. We’re excited for him to get a fresh start here.”

 

Kiffin told both Sports Illustrated and ESPN that controversial hire is going to happen.

He did not indicate whether FAU athletic director Pat Chun and university president Dr. John Kelly had approved the hiring.

Well we know things are going on in Tallahassee.  The only time FSU really punished a guy was when there was cellphone video of one of their players hitting a woman.  If there was no video evidence?  Tallahassee PD and FSU took care of things and did a great job in victim shaming.

Baylor fired someone from its staff after improper texts.

One could argue it's a step in the right direction.  Rather than cover his ass, they canned him.  Of course, he was not going to have nine sacks and 12 tackles for loss next year, but maybe culture change does exist?

It's new guys coming in and still doing the wrong things though. If I'm the AD I'm reminding these guys weekly what they can and can't do.

It's not like Mack Rhoades has shown leadership in the last 24 months at his last three schools: Houston, Mizzouri, now Baylor. He's too busy skipping town.

That's the place that allows the football players to go around and shoot people with BB guns:

From a story in today's Waco Tribune

Baylor hit with 7th Title IX lawsuit, plaintiff alleges gang rape by football players

Quote

Baylor University on Tuesday night was served with a seventh Title IX lawsuit which alleges as many as eight football players drugged a student and took turns raping her in 2012.

 

The plaintiff, who filed the lawsuit as "Jane Doe," remembers hearing the players yell, “Grab her phone! Delete my numbers and texts!” following the rape in an off-campus apartment with glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling, according to the suit.

Quote

According to the suit, the football team had a system of hazing freshman recruits by having them bring freshman females to parties to be drugged and gang raped, “or in the words of the football players, ‘trains’ would be run on the girls.”

 

Considered a bonding experience by the players, according to the suit, the rapes were also photographed and videotaped, and the plaintiff confirmed that at least one 21-second videotape of two Baylor students being gang raped by football players had circulated.

 

Quote

According to the suit, Doe told her mother later in the spring 2012 semester, which led to a lunch meeting between the mother and an assistant football coach. The mother listed the players involved to the coach and never again heard from him, the suit says. 

 

This account aligns with allegations made by three Baylor regents in an unrelated legal filing, when the players told the coach the incident was "a little bit of playtime."

 

The suit alleges the players then harassed the plaintiff and her family through text messages after creating fake phone numbers. She was also still required to attend classes with two of the players, according to the suit. 

 

In Baylor counseling sessions, Doe was not presented with Title IX-related reporting options but with statistics about how few women report sexual assaults, "in an apparent effort to dissuade" (Doe from taking action), the suit states. 

 

Later, football players allegedly burglarized her apartment, stealing money and a necklace while throwing clothes and belongings around the room. Doe reported the burglary to Waco police, according to the suit, and no charges were filed based on an understanding the players would return her belongings. 

 

One of the players allegedly involved in the burglary also previously sent Doe harassing text messages. 

"The football player told Plaintiff that he never came on to her because she was 'easy' and 'like coach said we (Baylor football players) don't want easy," the suit said. 

 

In a further act of harassment, the suit alleges, the players tried to justify the burglary by spreading rumors that Doe had stolen their dog. 

 

According to the suit, earlier in the year, Doe took a player's dog to the vet and paid for urgent treatment after the dog was injured in a dog fight organized by football players. 

 

Doe held a meeting with an unfazed Briles, according to the suit, and later recounted the details of the gang rape and burglary to her volleyball coach. 

 

As cited in the regents' legal filing in February, when Briles learned of the names of the players involved, he said, "Those are some bad dudes ... why was she around those guys?"

Unreal. The only reason those "bad dudes" are on campus at all is because YOU put them there.

 

Get :censored:ed Art Briles and the rest of Baylor University to boot.

1- It hasn't been a year since Briles was fired, May 26, 2016.

 

2- It is not just Baylor.  The city of Waco police recovered her stolen property and did nothing. Internal Affairs did not investigate those officers!

 

There was dog fighting and we found out last year that a WR was charged with animal cruelty via beating a dog, a Class C misdemeanor.

Not much from local law enforcement besides his charge. Then again, the Waco PD drug enforcement unit was seen to be a mess even  before the sexual crimes came to light.

 

3- There is one Dept. of Education Title IX investigation for Baylor active, with more possible. All such DoE cases can be seen here:
