The SEC’s Baylor?

While Les Miles is getting his fair share of opprobrium thrown his way for the shenanigans at LSU, the school deserves its fair amount of attention for it, too, for institutionalizing turning a blind eye to the problems, at least as long as the football team was winning.

… The school itself cannot escape blame for what appears to be a sweeping, years-long cover up of both their former coach’s actions and their failures in handling sexual complaints against their football players. At least six school officials knew of Miles’s secret, including three former members of the LSU Board of Supervisors, a powerful, politicized governing body at the university. They told no one, not even their own colleagues on the board.

Contacted Friday, former board members were stewing over the news.

How were we not told? How did this happen?

One of the three former board members who knew about Miles’s reported transgressions, Stanley Jacobs, fielded a phone call Friday from Sports Illustrated. “I don’t have anything to say, but thanks for calling,” he said before ending the conversation. Alleva did not reply to a message.

Have a nice day, fellas.

    Is there any evidence that Les Miles had sex with anyone other than his wife? This fascination with if he flirted, tried to kiss, touched, gawked at, etc. coeds years ago is juvenile at best. Now if LSU was covering up sexual assaults by players that’s another thing entirely. But until I see evidence of that IMO this is nothing more that cheap clickbait by lazy sportswriters who don’t understand the nuances of football to write about it intelligently.

    Oh look, the only big time program, in a state that stays under the radar, got away with shenanigans. I’m having trouble producing my shocked face.
