    Jamie Dantzscher, a 2000 Olympian, said Nassar was alone with her in her bed at the ranch.

    “There was no one else sent with him,” she said on CBS last year. “The treatment was in the bed, in my bed that I slept on at the ranch.”

    Even before Nasser, wasn't that place notable for being a gymnast torture chamber? I thought every couple years someone would chirp about it being hellish, but they kept churning out gold medalists so that was that.

    A prevailing sentiment throughout Raisman's impassioned speech was that talk is cheap; she conveyed that she wants to see change within the sport of gymnastics, but that USA Gymnastics' past inaction and failure to protect athletes has left her skeptical.

    Raisman addressed Thursday's announcement from the new CEO of USA Gymnastics, Kerry Perry, which said the organization would not longer hold national team training camps at the Kaloryi Ranch site in Texas, where so many were abused by Nassar.

    USA Gymnastics "neglected to mention they had athletes training there the day they released the statement," she said.

    Aly Raisman sounds like she has a "Bad Motherfucker" wallet.

    Raisman can be president of USA Gymnastics whenever she wants it.

    That is, if anyone ever wants it.

    The MSU trustees are the college of cardinals, and the school president is the pope who has his head in the sand.

    This week has been the 2018 equivalent of putting a criminal in the stocks and having the townspeople throw feces at him.

    And I can't say I mind one bit.
