    Art Briles suspended, athletic director on probation, Ken Starr moved to chancellor

    Collegiate athletics continues to get uglier and uglier.

    Probably won't get many hits because a lot of the most outspoken PRSIers think sports are yucky and for neanderthals. As a college football fan, Art Briles was nothing but a whiner. Glad he's gone.

    That's not the point, the point is a college covered up multiple horrible crimes in the name of winning.

    Much like politicians lying, they all do it. Pay these athletes, as they should be, and much of the bad behavior goes away.


    Alas, I shouldn't be posting here because @haxrnick thinks the outspoken PRSI posters think sports are yucky. :rolleyes:

    The thing so scary about the Baylor situation was the fact that the police were in on it.

    Come on, @rdowns. I said most. Surely, you of all people, can differentiate between the two. ::insert kewl emoji::

    You know what? I think the college athletics scene has been ugly for a long, long time. Football, especially, and, I don't discount the effect that brain trauma might have on the scene, either. I think it is good that with the internet, it is a lot harder to cover up this stuff now. Used to be just ignored.

    Gridiron? A sport for pansies that wear padding?

    Have a look at Aussie Rules Football then get back to me. The hits and catches they take there are tons better than gridiron. Besides, the start-and-stop flow of the game makes it completely boring.

    Anyway, back on topic: The delicious irony of it all: Ken Starr went to nearly no lengths to nail Clinton to the wall in a sex scandal; one that he tried to get Clinton sacked for, only for Starr himself to actually get sacked for a sex scandal himself.

    BL.

    The entire scandal comes down from the fact too many people in a small town is trying to protect the college football team to the detriment of too many people. It could be just as bad as the Jerry Sandusky scandal--possibly more so since it appears the coaching staff, school administrators, the Waco Police Department and possibly parts the Waco city government were all complicit in covering up the criminal acts.

    Not IMHO. Sports seem to be overpaid occupations compared to others (and by an impressive amount), and some of the players might act like neanderthals, but not all of them by default "just because", or not even the majority of them.

    FYI

    IN U of Houston in early 2000 a Football player was caught forging document to get grants for books when he was ineligible. The sold the books for money.

    The UH Police chief discovered and wanted to turn him in to County Sheriff, but the UH President told him not to do it.
    UHPD Chief did anyway.
    Football player was convicted for embezzlement and served a few months.
    UHPD Chief was fired.
    When UH President was challenged for his actions, he denied realizing the crime was a Federal Offense.
    Obviously he lied because as President he would have to know forging documents for US Federal financial assistance is a Federal Offense.

    He got away, UHPD was out of job.
