Here is the place for the lowdown on tennis, golf and other sport on campus. And if you consider band, debate or quiz bowl a sport, you have found your home. It is also the place to discuss schoolwide athletics.

#553458 But without JB and the athletics dept as a whole getting behind it and really pushing it I would argue it wioodnt of grown as quickly as it did. I think that taking that away from JB and his staff and taking away one of their largest accomplishments. Creating an event atmosphere around football. Of course there are students and alum who helped lay the foundation but JB and his staff recognized it an help grow it.

Just my 2 cents. I've been wrong a lot lately so I could be wrong here too.

Here is a pic from a tailgate that JB stopped by, the 2nd game of the 2006 season.

Former Baylor DC Bennett is interviewed about the entire scandal, pretty candid.


Long Read.

Holy Crap. That absolutely backs up what Ian said about the university trying to scapegoat the black football players. It also backed up what Ian and Art said over a year ago. There was an insufficient system in place, but there was a minimal protocol that Art and Ian followed.

- Ian advised Art that due process should be exercised.
What else would you want them to say? Indiscriminately suspend anyone with a whiff of an accusation?

- PH was investigating with their mind made up.
The line of questioning was not investigative in nature at all. They were looking for sound bites to support their narriative.

The more that comes out, the worse Baylor looks here.

I still think we hired him too soon given where the investigation was at, but I’m glad everything the defenders of the decision are being proven right about the type of person he is.

#554234 One thing that was never brought up was the "would be great if they kept it quiet" text. Otherwise, a lot of context to an otherwise ambiguous situation.

#554241 They did mention texts that were uncovered. I was assuming they were referencing the "would be great if they kept it quiet" text. Ian said it was quoted correctly , but taken out of context of how and why he said it.

He was being interviewed by the attorney representing the plantiffs, not sure they'd care.

Meh. In the words of HRC. At this point, what difference does it make?

It was a group effort Jon. You were an integral part of that. we can both lay claim to starting tailgating along with Mr. Lloyd. Those were some good times back then.

I wish I could read the fan boards of my current employer and not completely go insane. eye rolling doesn't do it justice anymore.

It takes a man to admit they were wrong. Too many of us simply try to justify their stance.
