NCAA clears Michigan State in sexual misconduct investigation

Remember several months ago when it looked like Tom Izzo might lose his job after Outside the Lines released a report about the culture of sexual assault in Michigan State’s men’s basketball and football programs? Well, while the NCAA was investigation the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal, they also looked into those allegations and found zero violations.

“The NCAA also conducted a second and additional review stemming from reporting by an ESPN program ‘Outside the Lines’ related to the way the institution handled allegations of student conduct involving student-athletes in Michigan State’s football and men’s basketball programs. Again, the Duncan letter states the NCAA review “…….has not substantiated violations of NCAA legislation.”

If you need a refresher, Outside the Lines reported that Izzo and football coach Mark Dantonio knew of sexual assaults involving their players and mishandled reporting the incidents to the proper authorities. In Izzo’s case, they alleged that the program covered up sexual assault allegations against Adreian Payne and Keith Appling and former player turned graduate assistant Travis Walton, who was accused of knocking a woman out in a bar.

But hey, since they didn’t violate any NCAA rules, it’s all good. Just like that, Izzo is back to being college basketball’s darling.

    So, explain to me how Penn St. got whacked while Mich. St. gets off scot free. The message seems to be that it’s ok to sexually abuse girls, but leave those boys alone.

    Typical NCAA selective enforcement. Boy, they’re going to lower the boom on some poor D2 school somewhere.

    The young lady was told before she reported the abuse not to report it because these people was above the law. Nothing would happen to them, and they were right. This just show to the next female to get abused dont come forward because nothing will come of it. I hope we have good enough coaches and assistants that if a young lady gets abused by one of UK players it won’t get covered up. Better yet I hope the young men our program recruits don’t consider abusing young women as an option to take
