Developing: Rape Allegations Continue To Mount Against Baylor Football

Penn State came very close in 2012 once the Jerry Sandusky scandal was revealed, to this date SMU (In 1987) is the only football program to receive the death penalty from the NCAA.

A new lawsuit from an alleged victim identified as “Elizabeth Doe” claims there were at least 52 rapes over a four year span within the Baylor football program, with 31 football players allegedly involved.

“Doe” reported being gang raped by former Baylor players Tre-Von Armstead and Shamycheal Chatman in April 2013 after a party. While the pair were named as suspects in the police report, they were never charged. So now Doe is suing Baylor for Title IX violations and negligence.

It’s all disturbing stuff if true.

Dallas Morning News

The lawsuit describes a culture of sexual violence within Baylor’s athletics, in which the school implemented a “show ’em a good time” policy that “used sex to sell” the football program to recruits. A Dallas-area high school athlete, according to the suit, said former assistant coach Kendall Briles once asked him, “Do you like white women? Because we have a lot of them at Baylor and they love football players.”

Also mentioned:

There were an alleged five gang rapes from 2011-2014 that involved 10 or more players at one time.
Chatman was accused of a previous rape involving a student athletic trainer that the school decided to cover up by paying for her education in exchange for a non-disclosure agreement.

Head coach Art Briles was fired in 2015. There have been several administrators caught in heavy cross fire since. Briles still says he hasn’t seen any facts. Others are adamant the allegations aren’t true either.
