    News gets worse for Baylor ... sexual assault victims were threatened with expulsion for drinking if they pushed their charges. Pretty horrible behavior by officials at a Christian school. God is watching.

    And applause to the District Attorney in Waco, Abel Reyna, who devoted the extra manpower to crack this case when many of his constiutents wanted it to go away.

    Baylor University is going to have a tough next decade. As it should. It might get tossed from the Big 12. That'd be a reasonable punishment, IYAM.

    We're also at a point where what's being reported about what Baylor officials allegedly did is more or less a bargaining chip in settlement talks. How many of these allegations been...cross-examined?

    That nugget about how Boise police have no record of visits to Ukwuachu's apartment, despite the several confirmations by police and their body microphones, should have BSU administrators feeling the heat too.

    But it won't.

    That was a great read.

    Thanks for sharing.

    My hats off not only to the DA; but also the victims friends; what great friends pushing her to report and staying with her in the hospital; that's the type of strong support that unfortunately is too often lacking.

    As for the DA; thanks for showing the public that not everyone is beholden to a big athletic corporation (even if it's supposedly a Christian school).

    That won't happen, but it (along with poor Iowa State) will get kicked down to the AAC in about a decade when the TV deal expires, Texas bolts for the PAC-12 or Big 10 and the rest of the conference gets looted for spare parts.

    Conservative hero Ken Starr did a heckuva job. Nice Christian family values at work.

    Ken Starr did a shit job. But I don't think he had any idea half of this shit was going on. No way.

    The Big 12 should kick them the hell out.

    That same day will be when I stop watching college football.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say there aren't a whole lot of university athletic departments that want to be held to that precedent of liability regarding sexual assaults.
