    Of course you can make a promise like that. How very grandiose of you.

    Details have finally emerged from the series of sexual assaults involving the Baylor football team, and it predictably isn’t pretty.

    In a series of interviews with the Wall Street Journal, Baylor regents tell the paper that the scandal involved 17 women who reported sexual or domestic assaults involving 19 players, including four gang rapes, since 2011.

    Coach Art Briles was fired in May in the wake of the allegations, but very few details were revealed at the time. Baylor regents, who oversee the university, are now going public with the findings made by Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton LLP. One regent told the paper the series of sexual assaults were “horrifying and painful.”

    The revelations included at least one case in which Briles was aware of an alleged incident and not only didn’t tell the police but didn’t alert the school’s judicial affairs staff or the Title IX office in charge of coordinating the school’s response to sexual violence.

    “There was a cultural issue there that was putting winning football games above everything else, including our values,” said J. Cary Gray, a lawyer and member of the Baylor board of regents. “We did not have a caring community when it came to these women who reported that they were assaulted. And that is not OK.”
    An alleged incident.
    I'm sure you would rush to the police station if you were texted by a 3rd party of an alleged crime, that you previously knew nothing about.
    Or maybe, like a reasonable person, you would say "if anything happened, she needs to go to the police."

    Actually it is worth it.

    You're operating in a way a rape apologist would. And that's embarrassing.

    In terms of a societal rape culture issue, your actions and attitude are part of the problem.

    Comparing Briles to Paterno and Sandusky is embarrassing. Those situations couldn't be more different.

    Actually Paterno and Briles are essentially the same thing.

    There's only one thing happening in this thread that is embarrassing.

    You're treating Briles like the rapist. That's the problem.

    I just wish people would stick to facts and control their emotional reactions to stories like this.

    There's a reason accessories or co-conspirators also go to jail.

    You're 100% the problem in today's society, not me.

    You don't find it strange that nobody at Baylor has come forward and said "Briles knew." I find that strange. I don't trust the media and their biased coverage - I prefer to think for myself. I'll say it again... no facts have come to light which suggest Briles did anything criminal.
    I too hate those left-leaning, anti-rape media members!!

    Guess I just don't need as much evidence to form an opinion. It was under Briles' watch that all these incidents took place. When you are the head of the program you shoulder a large responsibility for the collective behavior of the team. We are talking about 15+ incidents with players he brought to the school. Look at the type of players he recruited and the environment and culture that was allowed to exist. That is enabling.

    Wow, so, apparently, Briles is now being accused of harboring a child molester ?!?!

    When someone credible comes forward and says "Briles knew" I will be the first to have a heartfelt apology.
    But, until then, I won't join a media-led lynch mob based on misinformation.

    I doubt you will, it's more likely you'll just fade into the background, considering people have already come out and said that, sourced from multiple places.

    Briles is innocent until proven guilty as far as Im concerned.

    Very easy to jump the gun and join the herd.

    Lets see what can be proved.

    Agree with it or not but that's the rules we live by.
