Baylor Football Allegations

The nation’s largest Baptist university has been gripped by the on-going scandal that led to the firing of football coach Art Briles and the departure of school President Ken Starr in 2016.

Baylor University is facing damaging allegations following reports which claim that in four-year period members of their football team ‘committed 52 rapes.

A former student has filed a federal lawsuit against Baylor University, claiming her alleged rape was just one of 52 that occurred at the hands of the school’s football players between 2011 and 2014. 

Identified only as Elizabeth Doe in the lawsuit, the woman accused Baylor’s former football players Tre’Von Armstead and Shamycheal Chatman of brutally gang raping her, court documents state.

Ohio State Over Michigan Final Score

Ohio State Football:  Survives a Suddenly Feisty Michigan to Keep Its Record Intact…No. 3 Ohio State holds on to beat Michigan 42-41

Michigan’s season had not gone according to plan, but with a victory against Ohio State, much would be forgiven. Now, having just scored, with 32 seconds left, needing only an extra point to tie the game, Michigan Coach Brady Hoke decided to go for the 2-point conversion, to try to salvage the season by dashing Ohio State’s dreams of an undefeated season and a national championship.

But quarterback Devin Gardner threw an interception, sealing No. 3 Ohio State’s 42-41 win, the Buckeyes’ ninth in the last 10 years in the rivalry.

Braxton Miller, Ohio State’s quarterback, accounted for five touchdowns. Carlos Hyde ran for 226 yards. And Coach Urban Meyer improved to 24-0 in two seasons at Ohio State (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten).

If not for the tattoo-parlor scandal, in which players received cash and tattoos in exchange for memorabilia, and the subsequent bowl ban issued by the N.C.A.A., Ohio State might have played in last year’s national championship game. To make it this year, the Buckeyes will have to beat Michigan State next week in the Big Ten Championship game and hope for stumbles by either No. 1 Alabama, which played rival Auburn in a later game Saturday, or No. 2 Florida State, which plays in next week’s Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Michigan (7-5, 3-5) was supposed to be the least of Ohio State’s worries.  Read full story here
