Not a good look for you, Baylor.

We’re at a point now where you cringe just seeing a header with Baylor’s name in it.

Shawn Oakman was arrested on sexual assault charges earlier this month, but a Waco Police Department report obtained by Rivals.com’s Alex Dunlap uncovered another disturbing alleged incident involving the former Baylor defensive lineman…

Dunlap added that Baylor knew of the report but didn’t discipline Oakman, who played his first of three seasons for the Bears later that fall…

If Baylor indeed knew of the 2013 police report involving Oakman and did nothing about it, it would fit with the alarming reports that the university consistently ignored serious allegations involving violence against women.

That would be the least of it.  Unless you’re Earl Ehrhart, in which case you see a much… um, different problem.

    I can’t figure out why schools feel like they need to be involved in sexual assault cases.

    I also can’t figure out what this state rep is upset about if both sides get to bring in evidence, lawyers, and witnesses.

    seems like due process, but they shouldnt be doing this stuff within the schools anyway. Let the police handle it…

    oh wait….You mean the police dont handle sexual assault case that well either? It’s almost like the structures in place view women as lesser than men. I mean it isnt like police have been willingly and lawfully destroying untested rapekits where with rape cases still open. Oh they have…

    ok…well. I guess the lesson here is dont expect anyone to protect you if a football player rapes you. In fact you should expect to be shamed, harrass by football obsessed fans and for state reps to suggest that you made it all up, or you probably wanted it.

  2. Renee Unterman doesn’t see the problem here. Honestly.

    Earhart saying “you can’t make laws on a whim” or “threaten funding’ is comical. The Ga. General Assembly has done just that to public high schools that are GHSA members, which are all of them.

      Uh, Earhart did more than threaten to pull Delta’s (airline industry’s) funding (jet fuel sales tax exemption) because he disliked Delta CEO’s public statements on an unrelated policy matter. Sounds like a whim to me.

    I’m sure Ehrhart’s son could always transfer to Tennessee or FSU if his reputation was tarnished by a false or valid accusation of sexual harassment or misconduct.

    Don’t worry, this is an election year so by November Florida should re-establish itself as the most dysfunctional state in the country🙂
