Bethel to Eastern Kentucky. This would not have been one of the programs that was expecting Nigel Bethel to go to, but here we are, Beth has decided to transfer to Eastern Kentucky. Good luck!

Big 12 Requests Full Report from Baylor. Via the Big 12, the powers that be has requested the entire oral Pepper Hamilton report. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby has previously requested the report, but is making a second request for all documents associated with the investigations of sexual assaults, as well as all oral presentations, only omitting the names of any students:

Today, Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby sent a letter to Baylor University Interim President David Garland once again requesting all documents associated with the investigations of sexual assaults at Baylor. This request is for written materials as well as any information that has been conveyed orally to University leadership or to its Board of Regents including, but not limited to, the unedited written or verbal information from Pepper Hamilton, omitting only the names of any involved students. Internal documents pertinent to the investigation have also been requested.

Baylor released a statement yesterday and it essentially says that Baylor is reviewing the request for additional information in light of the federal privacy law and confidentiality to the survivors. As you may recall, CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodds said that there was a way to expel Baylor for “lack of institutional control”. I don’t know think it would actually come to this, but there is some teeth behind the request.

Please read how Nebraska head coach Mike Riley is handling things. Via Omaha World-Herald’s Tom Shatel, Riley was the former Oregon State head coach and he invited a woman to speak to his players at Nebraska who was gang-raped by Oregon State players.  This is pretty powerful stuff and this sort of thing probably makes more of a impact than anything else. A real live human being giving her account of her rape.

Meanwhile, players continue to leave Baylor.
