Baylor Dodges Big Penalties in Sexual Assault Scandal
The Bears might be spared. The Wall Street Journal reports that the NCAA will not hammer the Waco, Texas, university for widespread institutional failure in a scandal in which sexual assault reports against team members were ignored by the administration. The football coach and school chancellor have already gone down, but the NCAA reportedly will not replicate the Penn State situation, when it fined the school $60 million and yanked 111 wins from Joe Paterno, though many penalties were later lifted. Baylor’s probe is expected to continue for months.
