The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

Don't you people know that Art is a good Christian man!?!?!?!  He wrote two damn books making sure everybody knows!!!

 

 

I guess Art would argue that the Bible contains no injunction to honor state fooball rules. That way he remains a "good Christian". 

 

Of course he must have signed a statement somewhere saying he'd abide by the rules. But what's one little teeny weeny little white lie?

Quote

Puryear, the First Baptist pastor (who is also a former high school football player and the son of a coach), described an even loftier vision for Mount Vernon’s role in the Briles saga. “The story of Art Briles coming to Mount Vernon, Texas, is not about winning football games,” he told me, as we sit in his office, which is heavily adorned with football memorabilia. “The story of Art Briles coming to Mount Vernon, Texas, is a story about redemption, and grace, and forgiveness—something we all need, and none of us deserve.”

“Here’s some of what Briles might be seeking redemption and forgiveness for: Briles recruited at least four athletes who faced criminal allegations prior to coming to Baylor, had a number of instances where his players were accused of those things while under his leadership, and oversaw a system where it took years before anyone found out about it. A former Baylor student’s parents say they called Briles’s office several times to tell the coach that their daughter had been raped by Tevin Elliott, a Bears defensive end currently serving a twenty-year prison sentence for the crime. (Briles had agreed to meet with her in 2016 to offer an apology, but never showed up to the meeting.) A former Baylor athlete testified in court that she was raped by Sam Ukwuachu, a pass-rusher Briles brought to Baylor. Just a few weeks before that trial—after Ukwuachu had been arrested and indicted, and suspended from playing at Baylor (though he still did conditioning with the team)—one of Briles’s assistants talked to the media about how excited they were to have him back on the field. (Ukwuachu was initially convicted in August 2015; on appeal, his conviction has been variously overturned and reinstated because of a technicality regarding evidence. He’s currently awaiting a new trial.) “

Art Briles' Mount Vernon football team faces possible forfeiture after two players ruled ineligible

The district says those two players were cleared by that committee three weeks ago, but that same board went back today and reversed that decision.

Mount Vernon to appeal to UIL executive committee today. The district is claiming the parents of the two students (it's two boys from the same family) moved to MV for work, not so the boys could play on the football team.

Oh, and fArt got a public reprimand, too...🤣

Briles was also publicly reprimanded by the committee for using an assistant coach who wasn't a full-time employee of the district, also a violation of UIL rules.

Sounds like the coach Briles was using that wasn't a school district employee was Lynx Hawthorne, who'd played for him at Baylor.

 

...and the two players whose eligibility is in question are both relatives of Hawthorne's.

 

...and the reason this case was brought back up by the district committee was because they'd lied on their initial paperwork in regard to their new home address in Texas.

 

In short, Baylor gonna Baylor.

 

Also, as always, #$%@ Baylor.

Several of the examples contained here apply to Mount Vernon, Baylor and Briles. But especially the part that follows, "say it loudly and proudly".

I bet half the teams in the state violate that rule.  But screw Art anyway.

If I remember correctly, that statement would pass the censor filter if you changed the 'a' to a 'u', though. Only the base word, or the base word with an 'ed' on the end trigger it.

Briles arrived in Mount Vernon with a record and a stain. At Baylor, he went 65-37. He was also the head coach of a program where the Board of Regents reported that 19 rapes were committed by 17 football players from 2011 to 2016; where a woman who claimed she was raped by a Baylor football player settled a lawsuit that alleged 52 acts or rape carried out by 31 players; where documents provided by Briles in 2018 showed that he and “multiple senior Baylor administrators knew about a serial sexual assault assailant” within the football program in 2011, but did nothing about it; where the full report about Baylor, created by a law firm hired by the university to investigate what exactly happened and who exactly was responsible for the fact that many of these crimes were never reported law enforcement, was never released to the public.

Which of those things matters more?

 

Does it matter more that Art Briles built 4A Stephenville High School from a non-competitive program into one that won four state championships in the ‘90s, or that one of his players there was accused of raping a fellow student in the spring of 1991, and that when confronted by the victim’s father, Briles said, “What do you want me to do?” and continued to play him?

 

 

...“The thing is, you would think if Art Briles was really here for redemption, if he really wanted to clear his name, he would run a 100 percent squeaky clean operation,” Brian Ball says. “But he didn’t. He’s been here a few months and things are already a mess.”

Maybe Mount Vernon High School will come up with a reasonable explanation for how two stud football players from Colorado ended up in Texas, living near and playing for a former Baylor football player who is married to their cousin, and the brothers will be reinstated. Or maybe they won’t, and Briles won’t even be able to deliver on the promise of winning a lot of football games in a town that’s never cared all that much about football. Whatever happens from here on out, the people of Mount Vernon should have an easier time understanding what exactly the arrival of this disgraced football coach has brought them.
