I wonder how long this takes to blow up?
It's no issue..........didn't involve our University..
Not only did they have this guy work for them in the 90s, but to re-hire him to continue with his shenanigans......IT MUST BE A FOOTBALL ISSUE
Nothing to see here. Move along.
"You can take bowl games and you can take external things from people, but you can't take a warrior's heart."
Tom Corbett is on a conference call right now with the Iowa board of Trustee's and Rodney Erickson is holding a press conference at 2:00 PM CST to issue an apology.
“I think you can expect when the NCAA is ready to talk about what the appropriate actions are with regard to Penn State, that we’ll be ready to talk about appropriate actions with regard to the conference as well,” said University of Iowa president Sally Mason, chairman of the conference’s powerful council of presidents and chancellors.
“We are dealing with an unprecedented situation,” Mason said during last week’s interview. “It clearly is a sports-related incident, but it’s also indicative of systemic institutional failures – a moral failure as well a legal failure — and we as a conference want to do everything we can to both send a very strong message to our conference member, and at the same time also help Penn State find ways to really get back to emphasizing the great educational institution that it is.”
Big Ten bylaws give the conference power to punish members failing to provide complete, accurate information during an investigation. Sanctions, which can include suspension of programs or removal from the conference, require approval by at least eight of the 12 schools.
“The conference definitely has jurisdiction to take action in a case like this,” Mason said. “Exactly what actions we’ll take. . . it’s premature.”
I'd suggest a 4-year crippling sanctions for all of their intercollegiate athletics teams since this was clearly a "sports-related incident", a $100 million fine and other actions to correct the culture of silence that obviously exists in Iowa City.

Still chaps my ass to see these types of comments. I missed whatever timeframe some keep alluding to where we weren't, that makes us need help 'getting back'.
Suck It Emmert!! and "Sorry for not being sorry for being a Penn Stater" - Philafan
Let's throw some friendly bets around:
#1: How long or if even will it take for ESPN to produce any kind of story on this?
#2: Will there, if any, be sactions from the Big Ten or the NCAA?
I will start:
1. No story from ESPN.
2. No Sanctions from anyone.
Which should tell us all that as soon as ESPN ran with the PSU story it was bound to become big news. I love the part in the mini movie where the guy was at his gym and JS and DS were there with no reporters following but JVP couldn't get to his car without an escort.
I'm guessing most on here missed it but Monday night during the CBB preview, Jay Bilas blasted the NCAA for their handling of the Penn State situation saying they got punished for things the NCAA has nothing to do with and that universities need to take a look at leaving the NCAA altogether if they're going to be doing things like that.
Bilas has been saying that since the sanctions were announced.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
It's clearly is a sports-related incident, but it’s also indicative of systemic institutional failures – a moral failure as well a legal failure IMHO.
I emailed Adam Rittenberg, encouraging him to call for sanctions for Iowa or a reduction for PSU. Told him "journalists" were supposed to expose problems with the system, and he could try to help fix this one. Doubtful, but we'll see.
I believe that as well but did I read in the article that there have been previous complaints, etc...doesn't that make it a University problem as well.
This is a non-issue.
What happened to us was purely a product of the media. We were a juicy story, and ESPN took it and blew it up. We had a legend coach at a huge institution ignoring a former coach who was raping children (or at least, so you all don't assault me, that was the perception). This is boring. Will amount to nothing.
The Big Ten and NCAA are political institutions. If there was any doubt before, what they did to us was final evidence. The politics of this issue will be completely different due to a total lack of media response.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
Unless of course Vicky Tripony worked at Iowa and pissed someone else off there. Then she could go cry to her buddy Emmert.
I have to agree with this. Plus we have to factor in that sexual harassment has a long history of being ignored and pushed aside. These types of stories hit the local news, maybe some sports gossip blogs like bustedcoverage and sportsbybrooks then it is yesterday's news.
Like left said the names and the details (driven by the public release of the GJ presentment) made PSU a huge news story.

Meanwhile the actual coverup of rape goes unpunished....

I don't expect it to "blow up", although it should. The media should be all over this and the ncaa should follow with some very harsh sanctions against the football program. That seems about right based on the precedent they set with Penn State.
Yeah, he has ripped them repeatedly from the beginning. Bilas is a good Dukie.
Frenenz might have heard something about this. He covered up"! Fire him. Ruin the University. Fire everyone! Theres a problem with that whole town.
For those of you, including me, that have worked closely with college students you would know that of course Freenz heard something about this at some point. If you just sit back and let students talk they don't care what they say, where they say it, how they say it, or what joke is made about it.
For example, I am sure this was overheard at some point at Iowa:
"Hahahaha, ya, don't get help form old man rub the shoulders, dude is weird. I heard.........."
The national media is starting to pick up the story. The 4 letter network has a story along with the liberal rags like the Huffington Post. Looks like this complaint was filed to the City of Iowa, not sure if that forced the Universities hand to investigate. I bet when they start turning over stones they are going to find a great deal of nasty stuff. I hope the investigation encourages victims that were too scared to file complaints to come forward. I believe the Sandusky scandal is causing many Universities to lose sleep at night because I believe there are many dark secrets out there.
Send the article to Bilas. If he's really angry with the NCAA, this is his opportunity to call them out to either do something or admit their hypocrisy. It can be useful to have a guy with a bully pulpit bringing attention to this sort of stuff.
Even if he didn't hear about it, he should have done more.

You do know the Sandusky story first broke March/April 2011 time frame and it took 6 months to explode. I am sure more will come out as they continue the investigation.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
