    Another ugly story on sexual assaults by athletes. Several plaintiffs have apparently filed a Title IX lawsuit against UT alleging unusual handling of the cases and undue influence. I vaguely remember some of this stuff in the news, but not to this extent. Apparently six players on the 2014 football roster were accused of sexual assaults.

    Perhaps some one needs to explain the word Volunteers more adequately.

    In Colorado they'd talk about shutting the football program down. In Tennessee they will issue a harsh internal punishment like having the team watch a "can do / no can do" video and then having to do a punishment lap around the field for the opening of their Spring game while the Home Depot convention dressed crowd chants "death to the lying whores".

    Now a guy mooning another guy, as a joke, in front of a female trainer is a sexual assault.

    And depending whether or not you want to believe the article posted in the other thread, the supposed receiver of the moon said he wasn't even there.

    Is the Peyton Manning Title IX thing related to this?

    Not really. The plaintiffs in the current Title IX lawsuit cite the Manning incident as an example of the University's deliberate indifference.

    I have two diametrically opposed reactions to this. One is why the **** are priorities so screwed up in the SEC-land that this stuff seems to be commonplace? The other is, why the **** couldn't the the city of Boulder been a little more like these places during the "scandal"?

    They have a reputation to live up to.

    It is, afterall, the sacred birth place of the Fulmer Cup.

    Anyone think Butch Jones will be the coach when the new season kicks off?

    I'd put money on it. However, if he loses that Sept 24 game to Florida, the school's president might suddenly find a conscience.

    Definitely on the cop, but should be a problem for Butch because he called the player to warn him immediately after his call with the fuzz. His first call should have been to the school administration to figure out how to handle the situation.

    Very glad Butch backed out of the CU job. This guy seems like a grade A scumbag.

    You're not suggesting that he was, um, catering to his players, are you?

    Tough to see what's going on behind the scene. It's a fast moving situation.
