… Bob Bowlsby would be in line for a gold medal.
In case you were wondering how it was going in the Big 12 after the scandals at Baylor, here’s this thought from Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby at Big 12 media days:
… But let it suffice to say as it pertains to all of our institutions, we are very committed as a group of ten schools to eradicating sexual assault on our campuses. It almost goes without saying that when you combine alcohol and drugs and raging hormones and the experiences of 18-22 years old, it’s probably unrealistic to think that these kinds of things are never going to happen.
All that’s missing is sincere advice to victims everywhere to lie back and enjoy it if it should happen.
Raging hormones lead to rape? It’s rather staggering to hear someone say this. And in any event, it isn’t alcohol that causes sexual assault; it’s the one doing the assaulting who causes that.
So, yeah, this is sad and even a bit revolting. And if Bowlsby’s a dumbass for saying it, what do we call the school presidents who think he’s doing a bang up job as Big 12 commissioner?
