With pending lawsuits still hovering over the university, Baylor’s new head football coach, Matt Rhule, is not shying away from the tough topics and says he’s addressing them head on.
Just remember, Baylor did not happen because of football, or Art Briles, or a few bad guys on the team. Baylor happened because the administration deemed winning the Big 12 more important than upholding the values of the university. Baylor happened because it took practically 5 years for any of us to recognize that Baylor did not care about it’s students. Title IX is the nationally accepted minimum a university should do in being attentive to it’s female student’s safety needs. Baylor hardly made its implementation into their university practices a part of their to-do list, much less a priority. This should make every school take a look into the mirror. Hopefully they do not see anything as ugly as what has been transpiring in Waco, Texas.
