Time flies when you’re having a good time.

Holy effing shit.

Congrats, NCAA.  At least you’ve gotten around to this while Briles is still alive and on this earth.

UPDATE:  This is like the punchline to a bad joke.

What it really is, is a decision not to get dragged into another Penn State situation.

UPDATE #2:  You knew this was coming.

Only if they’re playing college football in hell, you bastard.

    Also, what happens to Baylor right now is actually far more important than the penalties they’re given.

    If it’s bad, the AAC might not even want them when the dust settles from the Big-12’s implosion.

    The NCAA announced today sweeping penalties to punish the Baylor football program. The most notable penalty is that the NCAA has declared that Baylor must leave the Big 12 conference after 2025.

    More than five years after Briles was fired. Seems about right. Like the major sanctions against USC in 2010 stemming from rumors and then investigations in 2006 about Reggie Bush’s career after he elected to turn pro. Punish the school and team with sanctions for activities that happened before anyone currently playing for the school was even there. While the USC thing at least involved ongoing investigations and amassing evidence into 2009, Art Briles was fired between the end of the season in 2015 and beginning of the 2016 season based on an investigation by an independent law firm requested the school which also resulted in the AD and president of the university resigning. Maybe I’m just daft, but why the hell couldn’t the NCAA issue sanctions swiftly based on the report the school’s hired firm issued in April of 2016 that, apparently, the school believed enough that they fired Briles a month later?

      The NCAA has still not acted on the basketball shoe scandal etc. They are a useless entity. When I was with IRS we use to joke about we’ll be glad to hang you as long as you furnish the rope and the chair. That is how the NCAA does it’s enforcement. UGA hopefully learned it’s lesson with the Gurley/Green investigations. Lawyer up and deny everything.

        Further proof the Greg McGarity sucks. The AJ Green and Todd Gurley II suspensions should have never happened.

    Boy they’re really showing those Baylor players who were TWELVE fucking years old when this shit was happening.

    Get rid of the NCAA. They are effing worthless. Either punish every adult involved in this or just shut the fuck up.

  12. Basically, Baylor was so bad about Title IX Compliance across the entirety of the school, the fact that Baylor’s athletic department failed to report allegations of sexual assault against its football players was not an impermissible benefit to the football program.

    That certainly doesn’t jive with the public reporting on the matter:

    “In February 2017, ESPN reported that Briles and his assistant coaches actively intervened in the discipline of football players, worked to keep their cases under wraps and tried to arrange legal representation for their players, according to a series of emails and text messages released by three university regents in a legal filing.”

  13. Senator – the only thing you left out is that Kenneth Starr (and any of the Liberty administration for that matter) can join Briles in the underworld.

    What happened at Baylor was horrific. With this decision there is now no reason for the existence of the NCAA.

    If you haven’t figured it out by now, Maryland, North Carolina, and Baylor ought to show that the NCAA exists today solely to be a rent-seeking cartel. They have zero interest in player welfare–their original mission.

    You would think after Penn State, that the NCAA would have created a set of rules to punish off-the-field misconduct by programs. I guess Mark Emmert was too busy losing in court to bother.

    NCAA sanctions or not, that dude is still radioactive. Especially on a college campus in the current climate. There’s been major blowback everywhere that’s tried to hire him, even as an analyst in the CFL. His lawyers are fooling themselves with this statement if they think this makes one difference with campus groups and administrators.

    I’m shocked an institution led by Ken Starr would find itself the victim of rampant violations of Title IX and the home to repeated instances of sexual abuse and misconduct. SHOCKED I SAY.
