The NCAA Won't Punish Baylor For Failing To Report Sexual Assault Claims Against Players

Despite concluding that it had a "campus-wide culture of sexual violence," the NCAA said it will not penalize Baylor University after officials failed to report sexual assault claims against football players between 2010 and 2015.

The ruling is the culmination of a five-year investigation undertaken by the NCAA following the eruption of the sexual assault scandal at the private Christian university in Waco, Texas, in 2016.

"Baylor admitted to moral and ethical failings in its handling of sexual and interpersonal violence on campus but argued those failings, however egregious, did not constitute violations of NCAA rules," the NCAA panel investigating Baylor said in its decision. "Ultimately, and with tremendous reluctance, this panel agrees."

The NCAA did cite Baylor for several violations of collegiate athletic rules, however, and imposed a penalty on the university that includes four years of probation and a $5,000 fine.

Because of course. It is worth noting that former coach Art Briles, who was fired over the above scandal, is now at Liberty, which has its own sexual problems (including possible assault) that have yet to be addressed.

2. I'm a mid-major fan

I live near Harrisonburg and am a rabid supporter of JMU women's basketball. Also about to become a big fan of the Wheeling University Cardinals (D-II) since my grandson plays football there. Get away from the big-time programs and it's still great.
