    If anyone deserves the death penalty, it's Baylor

    Baylor refuting report:

    “It is irresponsible to report that Baylor is considering a football bowl ban for the 2018 season when in fact the NCAA investigation into the prior football staff and previous athletics administration remains active and ongoing,” the school said in a statement obtained by SportsDay. “Additionally, it is premature to speculate as to what the University’s sanctions will be at this point in time.”

    As I was reading this, I was fully expect them to make a comment denying any wrongdoing and that a bowl ban would be unjust.

    I didn't grow up in a Baylor family, but graduated from there. It's sad to feel disconnected from the university I graduated from..where I met so many good friends, not the least of whom is my wife... but all of this has just pushed me so far away from it. That sucks.

    This is what you get when you have people who only care about religion as an institution vs the moral principals of a religion. If you ask yourself WWJD, it would definitely not be what Kenneth Starr, Briles and the rest of the Waco cult does daily.

    5 wins to get a bowl game? Baylor will win around 7 games this season imo.


    The allegations surrounding Elliot doesn't seem new.. pretty sure it has been known that Baylor dropped the ball with him the most.

    No this is what happens when you have a bunch of self important rich people wanting to be able to spend their Saturday afternoons winning football games at any cost.

    Not even shocked anymore... half expecting to see a report that Baylor offficials kidnapped coeds and forced them into sexual slavery, keeping them in a dungeon under the football field for the entertainment of recruits and boosters.

    I am having to go through something similar but even larger, all I can tell you is it doesn’t invalidate the positive experiences you had and doesn’t reflect upon you as long as you are aware and stand up for what is right.
