Pitchforks are out for President Simon - she's as good as gone.

Remember that the 40-175 year sentence he got today does not even start until he serves his 60 years in a federal penitentiary for kiddie porn.

Blow up the entire athletic department that knew about it. I still think it's absolutely absurd if there's 100+ girls with same story that it went on for so long. Those parents are probably putting $5000-10000 if not much more annually for coaching and traveling. Sure seems like it would have just taken 3 or 4 dads to find out and escalate it as far as possible or just take matters into their own hands.

AD gone too. I think next step needs to be a 2 year suspension of all federal and state money that the athletic department receives

They were already being monitored for faulty reporting of other alleged sexual assaults on campus. More heads need to roll, what a mess of a university.

What college isn't? They need to fix what consent is and get rid of title ix jurisdiction to fix that whole issue

It's also incredibly dumb that they can't give Nassar the death penalty. He's got consecutive life sentences on child porn and the Olympics charges, and now we're providing him free counseling. Let the appeals play out and just off him by a firing squad of gymnast dads. Otherwise the inmates can hopefully shorten his stay to a month and the guards turn a blind eye

Fox Sports didn't cover this story at all. Why?

Because they signed a 10 year/$150 million dollar contract with MSU in 2016. Despicable.

Another good point, just follow the money it usually leads to some form of corruption.

Rachel Denhollander's testimony was pretty amazing.

Some chatter in the FB B1G thread. Might as well bring it over here. Situation going thermonuclear it would appear. Very bad reflection on the whole Athletic Department at this point.

Michigan State is a terrible place and really should be burned to the ground. Just start over. Change the name too.

Can the NCAA give itself the death penalty?

https://deadspin.com/report-ncaa-pre...for-1822470340

Bonus top notch burn in the article, "In Emmert’s defense, he was busy punishing Ohio State athletes and coaches for getting tattoos at the time."

Glad the NCAA is getting called out for their BS.

I would’ve done the exact same thing this Father did.
Watching the fathers actions made me laugh & tear up at the same time.
It’s so sickening & Fcked up that all these people knew for all these years and nothing was done.
I completely agree with many statements above on this thread, Give this bastard the death penalty and MSU should be ashamed and should be banned from being on national TV and hurt them where it matters the most to them.
No Tv - No tourneys - No Bowl games = No Money.

How long until Izzo and Dantonio are gone? Don't see how they can plead ignorance, that's what JoePa did and he was fired.

I like this idea. If you take away the TV, the postseason appearances and a couple basketball and maybe 10-12 football scholarships, it will have a immediate and lasting effect.
