“Some women faced the prospect of their family being notified.”

Good Lord, Baylor.

“A number of victims were told that if they made a report of rape, their parents would be informed of the details of where they were and what they were doing,” said Chad Dunn, a Houston attorney who represents six women who have sued Baylor under the anonymous identification of Jane Doe.

I’m having a hard time deciding which of Baylor’s and Penn State’s administrations were the more despicable.

    Are they casting statues at Baylor?

    These are the schools we know of. Let’s not forget that there are many, many D1 schools protecting very large athletic programs.

    Well between Baylor and Penn State, I would vote Baylor as worst in a close call. They get the edge because they seem to have been actively criminal as opposed to negligently criminal.

    Baylor is not releasing assault victims names just to protect athletes, it would be done regardless of whether a jock was the culprit or not. It’s more of a paternalistic shaming of the victim. Blame the victim because if the brazen hussy wasn’t out drinking a glass of wine in the knee length skirt she probably wouldn’t have been raped.

    We’re going to have to declare it a tie, I think. The cases are different, but at this point those seem to be distinctions without a difference.

    State Penn in a landslide, but that doesn’t excuse the Baylor behavior. Baylor = TN to me, except the Vols have been at it longer. Glad practice starts tomorrow so we can turn to football again.

    One of the worst aspects of this whole shameful episode is that Baylor is a private Baptist school. That a school supposedly founded and based on some sort of Christian principles has become corrupted to this degree by football revenue should give the powers that be cause to take another look at what the true mission of the school is.

      “…true mission of the school is.”

      That could be applied very, very broadly.

      I don’t agree. Football isn’t corrupting Baylor. If they didn’t even have an athletic department, they would still be engaging in blaming the victim and would informing the victim’s family. It’s a perversion of basic Christian principles, and it’s not just Baptists who have done this.
