Even in the 70s, a doctor who is too touchy-feely with patients would get investigated by the cops. Wouldn't they?

Exactly. If it's a criminal matter, then bring it immediately and directly to the attention of a legitimate local, state, or federal law enforcement agency and be prepared to support any allegations with evidence. In short, give the authorities enough to justify the launching of an investigation. Don't bother with folks in the athletic department or administrative chains of command or with the campus cops, some of whom might actually be complicit and all of whom might perceive a vested interested in sweeping matters under the rug.

Coaches and administrators aren't equipped or qualified to conduct criminal investigations. If, however, they want to conduct parallel investigations of their own after being informed by the authorities that a criminal investigation has been launched, and if they decide to impose administrative penalties as a consequence of their findings, fine.

"My house, my rules." You would think that there would be some self-awareness within the organization that if something bad happened internally, they would turn it over to a higher authority. The whole "this is above my pay grade" thing. But, like this one, guess not.

And as another post highlighted, maybe you got upset and went upward like the wrestler did. The trouble is only heightened when the organization attempts to cut off the problem some other way, such as pulling a scholarship. That is just awful.

This has been going on at schools, though, forever, it so it feels. That whole, "this happened under our roof, and we'll handle accordingly."

I think enough has happened over the years where the schools can't pull this stuff anymore, or act so broadly above their jurisdiction because students, parents, and others have more resources and awareness about the law and how to proceed against violations perpetrated by the schools/organizations than they did 20 or more years ago.

I mean, really, we look at this now with these lenses that can't comprehend how such a simply structure (local/state/federal laws) can be queered by organizational protocols and "house rules." But, again, consider we needed the Catholic Church, Boy Scout, Penn State, and some of these other scandals to spotlight organizational corruption and cover-up's, but also to reinforce the prevailing justice systems some have been gaslighted into believing are somehow subservient to said house rules.

If what his son is saying is true, that statue deserves to come down. In my mind, this would be worse than anything Paterno did.

So, is this kind of behavior a Big Ten kind of thing? Penn State, Michigan State, Michigan -- who's next?

I mean there was the Ohio State wrestling scandal already.

It turns out is was more than the wrestling program but other athletes and students were molested. That is why I think Jim Jordan should be charged for the cover up in that school's sex scandal since he was told, and knew as well.
