    It's why I wanted the Bucs to have nothing to do with Jameis Winston. The Winston rape allegations weren't even addressed until a St Pete Times reporter came knocking 10 months after the fact. Gotsta protect them 5 star athletes, cuz you know $$$$.

    Word is Starr threatened to go nuclear if Briles kept his job.

    Edit: Starr absolutely needs to be fired from his tenured professorship though.

    Jim Grobe named interim head football coach at Baylor University
    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/jim-gro...hfMQRzZWMDc2M-

    Baylor Bears athletic director Ian McCaw also resigned; Ken Starr stripped of his duties as Baylor president, but will remain as Chancellor.

    Someone asked me earlier which scandal is messier? The Penn State scandal involving Jerry Sandusky or the Baylor incidents?

    I say both.

    As horrible as Baylor's turning a blind eye to a rape culture was, I think the fact that one of the most powerful men in Pennsylvania let Jerry Sandusky operate a defacto 'second chance' camp for children in his football facilities so that he could rape his victims until his heart's content is actually worse. There are people who *still* think Paterno was innocent of any wrongdoing.

    Candlelight vigils for the ghost of JoePa.

    He doesn't need any additional heat where he's currently residing.

    I still can't get why the NCAA gave back the wins Penn State had during the hideous and nasty Jerry Sandusky saga after forcing Penn State to forfeit them.

    The NCAA probably did some soul searching and came to the heartfelt conclusion that it wasn't their job to fault the people whose job it was to protect the children.

    The NCAA is there as a ruling body to restrict scholarships and erase wins when serious offenses occur, like boosters helping to pay the rent of athletes.
