Baylor And Boise State Won't Stop Playing The Blame Game On Sam Ukwuachu

Last Thursday, a Waco jury found Baylor football player Sam Ukwuachu guilty of sexual assault. Since then, the two universities that had him on their teams—first Boise State, then Baylor, which took him as a transfer—haven’t bothered themselves with much public reflection. There have been no apologies, no candid… » 8/26/15 8:50am 8/26/15 8:50am

Baylor’s Investigation Of Sam Ukwuachu Was Shameful

As awareness has spread about rape—and pressure has increased on universities to prevent and address it among their students—two justice systems have formed. There’s the one we’ve had for centuries: the cops, the courts, and if it goes to trial, a verdict. Now there’s a second track, one where universities, under the… » 8/21/15 9:00am 8/21/15 9:00am

Seven Players Ejected As Texas Knocks Off Baylor 

Texas just topped 14th ranked Baylor to bolster its NCAA tournament hopes, but not without some (threatened) fisticuffs. With two minutes left in overtime, Baylor's Royce O'Neale* and Texas's Isaiah Taylor dove for a loose ball.

Baylor Played An NAIA Team For The Sake Of A Dopey Movie

There's a noticeable oddity among today's college basketball box scores: The Baylor Bears, a nationally ranked Division I team, beat the hell out of the Huston-Tillotson Rams, an NAIA team that has a few Division I schools on its schedule, but has no real business playing against the big boys. The motivations behind… » 1/22/15 9:45am 1/22/15 9:45am
