    The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

    Why would they scapegoat the football program when it was one of the biggest moneymakers on campus? Why not just single out individuals to take the fall?

    TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    Took a 45 mile motor, not sail, today as there was no wind at all. New motor with newly repitched prop gets 15 mpg at just under hull speed and 75% power. Basically the same as an SUV...and I can live in the boat if necessary!

    The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

    https://www.wacotrib.com/news/education/in-full-deposition-mccaw-pins-sexual-assault-scandal-on-regents/article_47fae49b-71b6-5ebf-945c-0cb83fa010ea.html Former Baylor University Athletics Director Ian McCaw attacks regents and campus police in a deposition transcript filed Friday in the ongoing federal civil case on the campus sex assault scandal, asserting that black football players were scapegoated and that most of the sexual assaults were fraternity members and rugby players. McCaw alleges that regent chairman Richard Willis directed him to adjudicate the case of an accused athlete and circumvent the university's Title IX or judicial affairs process in the case. In the deposition, McCaw says former Baylor Police Chief Jim Doak had to step down in 2014 for mishandling sexual misconduct complaints. He refers to a document that "suggested that actually officers were reprimanded by the chief if they investigated sexual assault matters because Baylor did not want them showing up on their records and did not want info that would discourage families from sending their children to the university.” He also claims that regents shifted blame onto the football program, using the term “gang rape” to “inflame the scandal.” Regents “intentionally set the football program on fire to deflect attention away from their own failures and the other failures across campus,” McCaw states.

    Paul Finebaum slams UNC coach Larry Fedora for 'just plain stupid' CTE comments "...But I don’t understand how you can talk about this being bad for the country. That’s just plain stupid, and I really have to wonder, as scary and as sad as those comments are, Bob, how this great university can stand behind someone uttering these type of comments. “I realize everyone has a right to express themselves, but if you’re watching at home as a potential recruit to North Carolina or if you’re a parent of a child on that team, I’d be thinking seriously about running down to Chapel Hill right now and grabbing my son and saying, ‘You’re not playing for this guy’ because that’s incomprehensible that in 2018 you can make those statements. And listen, I realize you go up and down the dial right now, you’re going to hear some equally stupid statement about politics and world peace, but we’re talking about college football here, Bob. … " ~Paul Finebaum https://ftw.usatoday.com/2018/07/larry-fedora-unc-football-cte-concussion-paul-finebaum-espn-outside-the-lines?src=rss

    Well, our Founders better get busy... "Jones is the CEO of Texas A&M megasite TexAgs. He bought into the upstart in 1999, around the time football die-hards were making the final migration from faxed newsletters and 900 numbers to the internet. And while his site has expanded to include a studio and 24 full-time employees, Jones said that the message board remains the "soul of what we're doing."

    TCU Tennis 2017-18

    Chappell v. Glasspool is underway in the quarters at Iowa City. Nick lost the first set 4-6, but currently leads 4-3 in the 2nd set (on serve). The doubles final is scheduled for later today. 4-all. 5-4. Nick holds at love. 5-all. Glasspool holds at love. 6-all. Into a tie-break. Nick needs this. Chappell falls 4-6, 6-7 (3-7). (sigh). Hopefully, he and Alec Adamson will win the doubles title over Felix Corwin and Matic Spec. And they did! Chappell and Adamson won the doubles final 2-6, 6-2 and then 10-6 in the super breaker and take the title in Iowa!

    I remember really loving the view from the top, even way back then. You could see the Monkey Wards building really easily, of course, and the courthouse.

    That's sad. He was always such a dedicated Frog fan and was very knowledgeable about football.

    He was hyperbolic but he knew football and loved the Frogs. RIP Purple Pain/Gunner.

    I'll say what I can: he certainly loved the Frogs. Condolences to his family.

    This. Although, I do have a theory. Trump for whatever reason can't separate "Russian meddling" from "Russia collusion". So when he's asked about Russian meddling, he gets defensive and says no way Russia was meddling in our election because he thinks that's a swipe at the "fairness" of his election. He did walk it back on CBS (?) recently and said he holds Putin responsible for meddling. But that was a little too late on that front. Regardless, that Helsinki conference was Trumps second worst moment in his presidency, with his Charlottesville comments being the first. But let's be honest here, every single president after Reagan has been soft on Russia/Putin. Even Obama stated he didn't take Russia seriously as a huge geopolitical threat, and raked Romney over the coals for even suggesting that they were. Bush during his presidency said something like he looking into Putin's eyes and could see his soul. Just fell over in Putin's presence basically. Like I said, it's all been bad for years.

    What? Which elections? How did we go from illegal immigrants voting rights on tax-payer issues (and voting in general), to college kids not paying property taxes?

    RIP Gunner

    According to posts on other boards, the Frog fan known online as Gunner or Purple Pain has passed away. He has been a fixture of the online Frog community for decades, and he will be missed.

    So anybody who doesnt pay property taxes, directly or indirectly - and that includes most college students, who are of legal voting age - should not be allowed to vote in those same elections, according to your logic. Interesting. And anybody who rents an apartment, and that includes people of any citizenship status, pays property taxes, albeit indirectly.

    Too early to start a 2018 Football thread?

    Oklahoma still has a ton of talent and I think they have to be the odds-on favorite. As to who they play in the championship game, West Virginia is a good choice if their quarterback stays healthy. No other team depends so much on one guy, if he is hurt they could fall a long way. TCU looks like the next best team, then there are four teams all bunched in the middle. Texas is always great in preseason, but they have to win some games before I believe in them.

    God save us....

    And I would argue that people (or at least the majority thereof) who don't pay a dime in taxes should not have the right to vote on issues directly related to how the taxes at that level are spent/distributed. That at any level or sublevel is absurd, which plays into my second assertion.

    That's a huge W for Nick and a good sign that his singles game is improving. Chrysochos was seeded 4th. He's got Brit Lloyd Glasspool (seeded 6th) today in the quarters at 11:00 a.m. in Iowa City.
