    “...and another woman said three basketball players raped her in 2010, after which the accusations were not reported outside the athletic department....
    A team member invited Ms. Kowalski to his place for a party, and she accepted a drive to an off-campus apartment, the lawsuit said. When she arrived, there was no one else there, and Ms. Kowalski, who had already had trouble holding her glass at the bar despite not drinking much, had trouble controlling her thumbs to send a text, the lawsuit said.

    The three players took turns raping her, the lawsuit said. She woke up later in the apartment and took a taxi back to her dorm.

    Ms. Kowalski visited the Michigan State University Counseling Center roughly a week later, she said. The counselor she met with appeared to change her response to Ms. Kowalski upon learning that the men she said had attacked her were members of the basketball team. The counselor immediately insisted on having a second person in the room, the lawsuit said. Ms. Kowalski was not advised to seek a physical exam or pregnancy or S.T.D. testing, and was not made aware of her rights under Title IX.”

    But Tom Izzo is a media favorite, a guy everyone likes. A guy who fosters good relationships with the media. A guy who essentially has turned the media into a quasi public advocate.

    He can yell at guy for missing the open man in front of 12 million people but can’t be counted on to yell at a rapist

    Considering he was terminated by the board of trustees on grounds of incompetent/ malicious performance, I'm amazed the university doesn't put the cast iron shit-hammer on him sitting in high roller luxury alumni seating.

    If he wants to pay his own money and go sit in the nosebleeds, fine. But the university decides who sits in the fat cat seats.

    You notice Mateen Cleaves is being discreetly kept out of sight.

    I always just assumed Mateen was in his MSU hoodie and sitting with Mitch Albom.

    He's being most definitely kept off camera because he is awaiting trial on sexual assault charges (the case has been dismissed a couple times I believe, but reinstated).

    So they have the sense and ability to keep Cleaves off camera, but not Engler.

    From what I've heard of it, which isn't that much, it's about a 50-50 chance it'll eventually get dismissed again, but there's also a chance he'll plead down to lesser charges (still very embarrassing). In any case there's real real bad hotel surveillance tapes in the evidence.

    Bottom line somebody in the administration realized they better keep Mateen way way in the background until (and if) he's scrubbed clean. Yet nobody can figure out the same thing for Engler.
