Does Notre Dame protect rapist football players?

    Certainly appears possible. Disgusting doesn't even cover it, if true.

    Brian Kelly didn't care when a kid died - fucking died - at one of his practices. WHy wold he care about some women who still have a pulse?

    As is the case with certain colleges, Notre Dame fans come unhinged when the press takes up stories like this. Unhinged.

    Urban Meyer is wondering, "Why such a fuss?"

    She doesn't have a pulse. She committed suicide.

    What was the "joke" that Kelly made on the conference call?

    Something about how the Chicago Tribune was able to devote so many reporters to investigate the incident.
  8. Remember to separate the two issues: Was there a sexual assault? What was the response? Those are two very different questions.

    "Prosecutor Michael Dvorak last year decided not to file criminal charges against the accused player, saying Seeberg’s suicide made her statements to police inadmissible in court. Dvorak also said Seeberg’s statements were inconsistent with accounts of three other students and with cell phone records. Cell phone records support the student athlete’s account, three sources close to the investigation told The Tribune."

    From the same piece:

    In the Seeberg case, campus police didn’t interview the accused student until two weeks after the young woman filed her initial report and five days after her suicide.

    From the same people who brought you 10,667 allegations against 4,392 priests accused of engaging in sexual abuse of a minor between 1950 and 2002. Big Surprise. As long as you don't abort the child, you can abuse him/her.
  11. I didn't realize Notre Dame was involved in any of the cover-ups of priests' behavior. Was it Father Hesburgh or Father Malloy who turned a blind eye?

    Actually, they can't be separated. They can't be separated, because the University (via it's police force) did such a tragically poor job of "handling" the case. The "response" by the NDSPD is the exact reason why no one will ever know if there was a sexual assault. It's also what made it so easy for Mr. Dvorak to trot out the old..... Nope, nothing to see here...just move along.....
