They’ll get back to you on that.

Baylor says it will release a statement about the results of the findings of its pet law firm’s investigation of the school’s handling of the numerous sexual assault complaints against members of the football team by June 3rd.

“The Baylor Board of Regents continues its work to review the findings of the Pepper Hamilton investigation and we anticipate further communication will come after the board completes its deliberations,” the statement read. “We will not respond to rumors, speculation or reports based on unnamed sources, but when official news is available, the University will provide it.”

The regents have only received a preliminary review of the report. It’s unclear whether the report will be made public, as Baylor’s status as a private school shields it from Freedom of Information Act requests.

If Starr, Briles and the AD survive this, and the school doesn’t release the report to the public, can you imagine what the ensuing shit storm will be like?  That might turn out to be a bigger nightmare for Bob Bowlsby than conference expansion.

    This is proving to be an absolute disgrace on so many levels. The President, Ken Starr, the AD and Art Briles should all lose their job over this.

    • Everyday they try to keep everything hush, hush the worse and worse they look. Sooner or later even ordinary folks will learn about this and they will look like untouchable bullies.

    I see that future Auburn head coach has been fired from Baylor.

      The question is how long will Briles have to sit out before The Barn would hire him? I think he would need to site for a year and then coach for a year elsewhere before they would hire him. So maybe the Gus Bus gets two years.

        Since when does the Barn give a damn about appearances? They are “all in” all the time.

          They never game a damn about players, but coaches have had to sit out for a bit, e.g. Bruce Pearl. I am pretty sure that it has to do with legal culpability as opposed to any sense of ethics. If they fired Gus and brought in Art today, just think of what would happen, both with law suits and Title IX BS, after the first sexual assault claim. There is some amount of time they have to wait.

    • I wonder if a couple Auburn Boosters are already en route to Texas on their private jet for a clandestine interview. Wait–that is ridiculous…they will probably wait until nightfall.

    Briles just got canned.
