Mark Stoops

I don't get what he's doing.  He's been getting good recruit classes, yet the team looks to be getting worse, even by Kentucky standards.  Blew a 25 point lead last week, and it took a late 4th quarter drive against Florida's reserves to top 100 yards of total offense today.  He'll be lucky to still be employed by December.

Mark Stoops and James Franklin officially added.

Mark Stoops is in a low pressure situation but his seat still may be very hot.

 

James Franklin will probably get another year but the guy is not a head coach.

He's a great recruiter... but that's about it.  Curious to see who Penn State could land, now that the sanctions are off.

I think if Penn State goes looking for a new coach next fall you could see Lane Kiffin get looked at by them. Penn State are trying to become a more dynamic attacking offense and Kiffin will want a coaching job in a big conference that will allow him time to set things up the way he wants it. I could see his approach being closer to Pete Carroll's USC teams, with 2 RB's splitting the load, rather than what he runs at Alabama. He also would bring another big name to the Eastern division of the big ten and make media days more interesting.

So Les's stay of execution lasted four games into 2016.  Not shocking....his clock mismanagement was one that a rookie coach makes, not someone who's 15-ish years into this.  And, for some reason, never really recruited the QB position like it was important.  They've been so bipolar the last few seasons. So now, look for the Tom Herman or Jimbo Fisher rumors to simmer for three months, and Miles will land on his feet at a top program next year.

With the name of Art Briles being brought up in regards to LSU, does anyone think there's a possibility he gets tagged with the dreaded NCAA "Show Cause" tag? I think if Jim Tressel could get it for covering up tattoos and selling personal trophies then Briles should be in line for it by possibly covering up sexual assault or at least not taking the reports of it seriously.

There are a couple of big differences.

 

1- Tressel was given a show cause due to his failure to report violations of NCAA bylaws in relation to the tattoo scandal to both the compliance office and to his superior.  Briles did not really break any NCAA bylaws and LOIC is not going to be slapped on a coach. 

 

2- The Pepper Hamilton summary did not specifically charge Briles with anything.  The common words used were like "the football program and Athletics Department leadership" and "some football coaches and staff".  Baylor has also self reported violations in conjunction with the Pepper Hamilton summary and that will be all which the Committee on Infractions can act upon.

 

Stewart Mandel (FOX Sports) wrote about how the NCAA may look at Baylor back in May and has quotes from former CoI members.

I still think they need to do the leg work on this, any other organization of this type would be expected to do so.

Leg work for who and for what? If a university, especially another private university wants to hire him, they can do that.  A public school is going to face greater scrutiny.

The Pepper Hamilton report was conducted by a private business for a private business.  They cannot really touch the report, just the finding of facts.  

 

And what can they actually do?

Does the NCAA have subpoena power?  NO. Therefore neither Starr nor Briles does not have to speak with them.

 

And if want the NCAA to look into Baylor for coaches roles in sexual assault reporting or player eligibility, Baylor is at the back of the line, not the front. 

Closer to the front would be Michigan (search Brendan Gibbons), Florida State (of course), and Boise State (Sam Ukwuachu committed a crime there first).

As high profile as this is they should already be digging in, especially if the Big XII has already started. And I agree, if the coaching staff is shown to be stepping into the realm of possibly witness tampering and intimidation all programs need to be investigated when these appear to have taken place. The NCAA does have an expectation that its member institutions take care of all students and not possibly impede investigations, though in some instances at Baylor it appears the cops were not bothering to do any work to investigate the claims and the school was not informed on all of them. In my opinion, what Briles did is more dangerous to society than what Tressel did.

Not conducting criminal investigations is not the NCAA's enforcement problem,  That's a state law enforcement and a Department of Justice problem. 

 

And you don't know that Briles did as the report does not name him or attach him to any wrongdoing.  He and the university reached a settlement, so unless a third party takes him to civil court, you are just spitballing.  Baylor has not received a Notice of Allegations, so as of now, the NCAA cannot punish and repeat the mess they stepped into when they penalized and fines Penn State.  The NCAA knowns they should not violate their enforcement bylaws again. 

 

As of June 15, the Department of Education currently has 195 schools with a total of 246 Title IX Sexual Assault investigations underway.

 

Say that 10% (20 rounding up) of the schools had sexual assaults involving varsity athletes. Where does one prioritize?  The investigators are already few and far between as it is. 

 

TLDR. Briles cannot be given a Show-Cause because there has yet to be a Notice of Allegations given to Baylor regarding major infractions

You're correct I don't which is why I said possibly. The reports sent out have identified members of the school, Waco police and athletic department that had knowledge and interceded on behalf of the athletes. None of the names have been released. IF his name is in the report he has questions to answer to. IF his assistants are in that report, he has questions to answer for. At the end of the day the NCAA has done a Show for Cause with little to no information so seeing it happen now wouldn't surprise me. If I am an athletic director at any FBS or FCS school, I'd steer clear of him until he is fully exonorated. Even if he doesn't get a Show for Cause.
