sex, lies and where was the ncaa and emmert

Unread post by billy.pilgrim »

I intended to ask this question after this had been known to Michigan State for 20+ years and to the public for 2 years and even after the pedophile had been convicted and before the ncaa had opened any sort of investigation. (edit for new info - Emmert and the ncaa knew about the doctor since 2010 - while it was still going on), but didn't have time.

why would the same (on edit - sack of shit) Mark Emmert, who wanted to give penn state the death penalty for sanduski's crime, sit back when this was going on at a major university?


maybe he thinks it's okay with little girls

edit - he needs to step down immediately

I believe that the 2010 reports to Emmert were about Michigan State student athlete perps, not Nassar, the former Team USA gymnastics doctor.

Emmert Defends NCAA Effort to Address Campus Sexual Assaults
NCAA President Mark Emmert says sexual assault cases involving Michigan State athletes referenced in a letter sent by an advocacy group in 2010 were already being investigated by law enforcement and the school.


However, there seems to be plenty to pan Emmert for both in 2010 and now.

Death To The NCAA
Mark Emmert Had Nothing To Say About Michigan State's Role In The Larry Nassar Case

Maybe it's a blond hair/orange skin thing.

It won't surprise me to see him ousted. The MSU president is gone and the gymnasts and their allies ain't giving up. This is really horrible what the girls went through, maybe the worst sports story ever. It makes me tear up watching them on TV or even just thinking about the years of abuse.

Thanks, extending the culpability beyond Team USA and MSU had not occurred to me.

The Russian doping doesn't seem as bad now.

PSU, MSU - they should rename it the Big Pedo or the Abuse 10-Year-Olds Conference.

he should have at the very least opened some sort of inquiry to see if the ncaa should investigate.

There were others - trainers, coaches, psychiatrists, parents, (media?) etc. - who were told and dismissed the allegations. I hope that all of their names are being aired.

That's right, I'd forgotten that I'd heard that.

Idk. Maybe there's an ivory "wall of silence".

It's somewhat of a cliche in academia, but maybe not that common. I know that my warm, smart, good-looking prof. brother would never be a creep, but I was surprised to learn that in his 30 years of teaching he's never once been propositioned by a student for fun or for grades.

It just goes on and on.

After ridiculous Larry Nassar board meeting, Michigan State needs to clean house. Again.

If I was one of the girls/women or related to one, I might have gone a bit nuts on someone by now.

Wow.
I know they aren't the only school with abuse problems, but it is time for an example punishment designed to cause ever school to pay attention.

At first I thought they deserved an athletic death penalty, but now I'm leaning more toward ending every department involved. If this includes presidents and board of directors, then close the school for good.

Yeah, people come and go. Not really a big deal.

Not saying they are worse than others - only that it's time for an example.

End all sports there, or just take away their accreditation. Other schools will immediately pay attention.

"The NCAA can’t be criticized enough. More proof comes with this week’s tale of an Ohio softball star who will have to sit out her freshman college season as punishment for changing her mind, while still in high school, about what university she wanted to attend."


"But Akron continued doing everything the rules allowed to damage her athletic career—and the rules allowed ‘em to inflict plenty of hurt. Akron said it wanted the NLI enforced. The committee sided with Akron, telling Cummins she could play at Akron or nowhere this school year."


Maybe the softball gods are watching and Akron will do worse than their 4 and 43 record last year.
